I'm wondering whether this IBM-GloFo-Samsung alliance will put an end to the semi manufacturing at IBM. Now that both GloFo and Samsung are building fabs in the States, IBM can built their chips for the US government there. However I believe that products like Power7 (just like Intel) will require that the chip designer works really closely with a fab. If the alliance works as tightly I dont know.

where do you think GF gets their 32/28 and 22/20nm designs?

It is amazing how rapidly the list shrinks at smaller nodes. Not a healthy trend for the industry, time for a fab co-op? What is also worth noting is that half of the fabs at 22/20nm are outside the western hemisphere. What does this bode for geopolitical perturbations? I am also surprised that IBM which does a lot of R&D work in advanced tech nodes is not in the picture below 40nm. MP Divakar
