TSMC announces plans for $16 billion foundry to push the envelope on 5nm, 3nm process nodes

TSMC-Fab

TSMC is planning a massive new fab for the 5nm and 3nm nodes, with an estimated cost of $16B. Pushing the boundaries of semiconductor technology isn’t just yielding fewer and fewer positive returns — it’s getting ever-more expensive as well. No one thinks the current cycle is sustainable, but TSMC clearly believes it has a path to at least the 3nm and possibly the 2nm node.

Echo Owners May Get Their Own Kind of Music


Amazon is planning two music subscription services, according to rumors that began circulating last week. One is a $10 a month offering that is similar to Spotify and Apple Music, and the other is a $4-$5 a month cut-rate service available only on Amazon’s Echo device. Amazon reportedly wants to launch both in September, but it has yet to finalize deals with major music labels and publishers, or to settle on pricing for the Echo-only service, which will be ad-free and offer unlimited music on demand.
