Sometimes, I just think that TSMC has nothing more to do. It is interesting how this great company is winning. Congrats for this expansion. More revenue.

The OSATs can probably compete against TSMC on cost basis but TSMC can still push their new packaging capabilities on grounds of better resolution of chip - package integration issues or just hold back on wafer supply. But one would think that TSMC will target its capabilities for the higher end of packaging ( e,g. MCMs using Flip Chip and 3D using TSVs ) in order to justify their higher margins.

And to improve outcomes - by having it all in-house and well-coordinated; especially important, I'd venture, for heterogeneous TSV-based stacks.

It's intriguing, maybe inevitable. So I guess we would expect Samsung and Intel to do the same?

You know, I have some bad feeling of consolidation in packaging sector down the line...
