TSMC delay 40nm production until Q1, 2009
CHIP FAB TSMC IS to delay its 40nm process, a bit. It was originally scheduled to start shipping this year, just barely, but now it has been pushed out.
People whispering in our ear have said the first parts, originally scheduled for the waning days of 2008, slipped to January a bit ago. They then moved on to February/March, and that is looking much more solid now.
