This is not a suprising news, especially nowadays when everybody in the market struggles with extended LTs and allocation issues since long. Almost all founderies announced plans to spend tremendous amount of money to their fabs such as TSMC, GB, Samsung, Intel etc. However i'm still missing a part in the puzzle. Still no plan to switch 450mm wafers? Why nobody is focusing on larger scale wafer processing? Only intel had some movements but rest?

The 450 mm program is way off in the future. Most OEM toolmakers are not anxoius to spend the money to develop this platform when they hve barely broke evn on the development of 300 mm.
