Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. has released three silicon-validated reference flows within the open innovation platform (OIP) that enable 16 FinFET systems-on-chip (SoC) designs and 3D chip stacking packages. Leading electronic design automation (EDA) vendors collaborated with TSMC to develop and validate all these flows through multiple silicon test vehicles. There are three reference flows.

So Intel is NOT gonna blow everybody easily!!!
What does this mean in layman’s terms?

There are companies not named Intel that are developing, and deploying advanced computer chips.

(It's hard to accept the truth when the lies were exactly what you wanted to hear.)
More comput power in a much smaller package.....
Smaller means more chi[s per wafer....Low cost ptoducer WINS!
Global Mono[oly follows!
Do you see how BIG this is?

Intel just announced a schedule at IDF13.....their showcase for advanced technology their plans to get to advanced fabrication....seemed to be light years ahead of anyone else.
This says they are only a few years ahead .....
So Intel is NOT gonna blow everybody AWAY easily!!!

(It's time to water the Tree of Liberty.)
Well it is nice to see they are still in business, employing some Americans. :)
It will be interesting to see how flexible these SoC's will be regarding how they can be programed to present a given type system. And what the underling type systems shall be represented, say just as one example. Digital Signal Processors, with perhaps the means to also contain fire control radar or other type functionality.
Time will tell.

(Galt level is not far away......)
We need some good tutorials for nontechnical freepers regarding what can be done as they cram more transistors onto a 200 mm square chip.
First off, the headline makes my eyes cross. lol. This does sound like a great leap forward, comrade. :p

Lol, Ernest, I can’t even understand what the Title means! I’ll let you ‘guys’ figure it out.

It is about someone (TSMC) gyving Intel competition in the chip making business.,
It’s all ‘Greek’ to me, but I know that Samsung plans to spend billions expanding their Austin, Tx semiconductor plant.
