TSMC CEO CC Wei has announced plans to begin work on building a new 8-inch wafer fab to satisfy robust customer demand for specialty process technologies. He also announced that the company is still on "schedule to move a newer 5nm node to risk production in the second quarter of 2019, followed by volume production a year later."

Wei reiterated TSMC's target for a 5-10% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for revenues through 2021. Meanwhile, annual capex through 2021 will be maintained at between US$10 billion and US$12 billion, Wei continued.
Meanwhile at Intel...
Say's their 7nm process is on schedule, but don't worry, they aren't abandoning 10nm! /s

Hopefully 7nm works out for intel and they gut 10nm from their fabs. 10nm was a dumpster fire as far as I'm concerned. If it doesn't, there wont be much competition with tsmp...
