GlobalFoundries and Samsung announced today that they intend to synchronize their 28nm high-performance/low-leakage production facilities. This new agreement follows a 2010 collaboration between GloFo, Samsung, IBM, and STMicroelectronics in which all four firms agreed to cooperate in building out their low-power 28nm process nodes. One of the differences between modern foundries and Intel (or, historically, AMD) is that foundries typically offer the same process in a variety of flavors. GlobalFoundries, like TSMC, offers 40nm production in both a generic (G) and a low-power (LP) version, with... Read more...

In addition to TSMC, UMC, and IBM, NVIDIA will now be adding Chartered Semiconductor to their list of current foundry partners. The driving factor behind this new business relationship is to provide NVIDIA with more leverage in terms of pricing with key foundry partner TSMC.
