"The test chip was implemented using a commercially available tool chain and design services provided by companies associated with ARM and TSMC." Did TSMC provide by any chance SEM cross sections? I am curious about fin height variations for example what's the shape look like? Do they look similar to Intel

"New ARM Architectures for Servers: 64 bit, Virtualization, and Energy Efficiency". I want to see cross sections. I want to know Fin height variations within a die and across the wafer. I don't need some marketing BS

@the_floating_gate I don't think any cross-section SEMs have been seen in wild yet. But if you can persuade them that you in the market for a few hundred million chips I am sure they will share.

A spokesperson for TSMC has told me that they won't be putting out any SEM cross-sections of the 16FF process until ICs made using the process have been sold. Once that happens third parties can buy some chips, take a saw to a chip and take their own microphotographs. So TSMC may leave it up to those third parties or release some of their own.

You think they showed it to ALTR ?
