high end microprocessors to be precise, and the market for that is not growing greatly. I think Samsung is probably going to overtake Intel but a wee bit later than IC Insights suggest.

Remember the old fabs would be not used at all unless updated. The materials within are often mixed some go some stay. Some are pilot lines and some are mature lights out. Some are pushing the edge of technology proving a section of tech or ability and quality. Once checked out BAM! A single older 13" wafer will handle 2x or 4x or more die as the process changes.

The biggest thing is that Intel is upgrading fabs, but not building new fabs. Samsung, by contrast, is building new fabs. Intel is doing crazy things like stock buybacks and large dividends. Intel is getting to where it reminds me a lot of GM. I wish Intel would go back to the build a new fab a year mantra rain or shine.

Samsung's predominant sale is in memories and Intel's strenth is microprocessors. I would doubt if Samsung can overtake intel. They might come close but Intel would always lead unless Samsung really do wonders in microprocessor area.

Intel needs to think beyond PCs. Loose Tablets market, Loose cell phone market, Loose TV market. Limit your self to Laptop/high-end servers, and manufacturing With Volume TSMC and Smasung will clean the fabs..and innovate to the next level. Just like IBM manin frames could not water fall to PCS, PCs cannot waterfall to consumer devices.. Hope someone in Intel is thinking....

The trend line is very clear, but I personally don't see it happening that quickly. I do believe that unless something changes dramatically Samsung will be No. 1 in the not-to-distant future.

Do you agree that Samsung will overtake Intel by 2014-2015 or is it too early to say? After all the semiconductor industry is going through an inflexion point where a plethora of new technologies, materials and processes are being touted around.
