TSMC is one of Taiwan’s largest companies, and is the world’s largest contract chipmaker producing hardware for AMD, Apple, and Qualcomm to list a few. Rumor has it that Intel is also going to outsource 5nm production of some of its processors to the giant chipmaker later this year. The company aims to manufacturer up to 120K wafers a month based on its 5nm node, which would be a 100% boost in production at its Fab 18 facility.
