    Samsung 10nm and 7nm plans updated

    Samsung Reported to Ramp up 10nm and 7nm Production With a Huge Investment
    Samsung ramping up to 7nm next year

    Samsung said to expand 10nm line 17 (for H2 this year), and build new facilities for 7nm to ready by early 2019. It is reportedly adopting GAA FET at 7nm, and will use EUV "once it achieves a breakthrough in the technology."

    Also, the source reporting the expansion (ETNews 대한민국 IT포털의 중심! 이티뉴스) reports they ordered 8 of the EUV scanners each over $200 million USD, yet they have trouble finding the land, which may delay things.

    It really looks like they are approaching 7nm as a long-term thing, not rushing against TSMC.

    He seems to contradict himself. First he says 7nm will be in volume production in 2018, then he says "all chipmakers will have a few headaches when trying to move to sub-10nm process technology, and will have a hell of a time improving yield rates for the node." - which indicates to me they probably won't reach volume production in 2018.

    7nm?! It looks like Samsung will be introducing 8nm and 6nm process.
    Samsung to introduce 6-nanometer tech

    So that means that Samsung will have 10nm, 8nm, 7nm & 6nm process nodes in the future?!

    From that article:
    Samsung Electronics is the only firm to manufacture chips with 10nm process technologies.
    You can't take anything the Korean press says seriously when they are taking about Samsung.
