TSMC might be producing all AMD and Apple’s goodies, but Samsung still makes more chips

This might come as a bit of a surprise, but Samsung ended 2020 making a far greater number of wafers of computing silicon than pure-play foundry rival, TSMC. It’s widely known that TSMC makes, well, almost everything, but with a monthly manufacturing capacity of 3.1 million wafers versus TSMC’s 2.7 million wafers, Samsung actually accounts for nearly 15 percent of the world’s entire wafer supply, or a little over one in seven. The Korean giant likely has its vast memory empire to thank for that.

Relative manufacturing lightweight, Intel, came in sixth place in the global rankings with just 884K wafers per month. Pfft. Small change, really. This comes from a report from IC Insights as reported by DigiTimes
