Intel Says It Will Catch Up to Foundry Rivals TSMC and Samsung By 2025

Intel has announced today that it will start building chips for Qualcomm and Amazon. The company also said it will catch up to foundry rivals TSMC and Samsung, which it used to lead, by 2025.

Intel has lost that lead to TSMC and Samsung, whose manufacturing services have helped Intel's rivals Advanced Micro Devices Inc (AMD.O) and Nvidia Corp (NVDA.O) produce chips that outperform Intel's. AMD and Nvidia design chips which then are made by the rival chip manufacturers, called foundries. Intel said on Monday it expects to regain its lead by 2025 and described five sets of chipmaking technologies it will roll out over the next four years.

Starting in 2025, Intel plans to use a new generation of machines from ASML that use extreme ultraviolet lithography to project chip designs onto silicon, similar to printing a photograph. This could help the company catch up with Apple's M-series chips which are manufactured by TSMC.

"Intel is absolutely going to catch up, and be ahead in some dimensions, with TSMC over the next few years," says analyst David Kanter. "Intel really does have people who spend all their time looking at how to deploy new materials and technology to juice their performance."
