It seems TSMC has tied 450 mm and 14 nm rollout together. It is very risky, since Samsung will be going ahead from 20 nm to 14 nm without going to 450 mm, just like Intel.

It is insane to have this high level of advanced silicon manufacturing concentrated on this island - nuts - completely nuts.

No payback even by 2019 doesn't make sense. Also looks like just one fab with no contingency.
