Andy, You're right. In the end the customers will call the shots. However, threats such as capacity allocation and inside competition can be extended to any of the foundry giants as well. I just think with so much money on hand they can probably sweeten the pot for some customers if they are serious about the foundry business. Maciej www.chipcrunch.com

There are worries from the customers who fear the competition from inside Samsung, capacity allocation, service mentality. It's not how seriously Samsung or us take, it's the customers who call the shots. It won't last long. Andy www.3wayventure.com

With almost $10 billion in cash on hand, and a pretty good track record of entering established markets - I would definitely take them seriously. Maciej www.chipcrunch.com

Take on $10 billion TSMC? Is Samsung serious? And should others take them seriously? I say yes and yes. What do you say?
