According to DigiTimes, TSMC received a new order for High-Performance-Computing (HPC) chips from NVIDIA and Qualcomm.

The report specifically mentions chips for artificial-intelligence applications, which either means Volta GV100 (added to the drivers just recently), Xavier SoC (a supercomputer SoC) or both.

The order was allegedly placed by NVIDIA and Qualcomm, both companies are involved in various AI and deep-learning studies and projects.

Last year at GTC Europe NVIDIA introduced Xavier supercomputer system on a chip. This silicon has 7 billion transistors for eigh-core custom ARM64 CPU and 512-core Volta chip. It was revealed that the chip will be manufactured in 16nm FinFET process, but according to this report, it might be manufactured in 12nm instead.
