I was under the impression new fab's were rather expensive.
Getting equipment for 8, 7 and 6nm process for the relative small performance difference between them sounds ludicrous. Or like a marketing ploy.

He explains in the article that 8 and 6nm would be half-shrinks. 7nm would be the next full-shrink and following the roughly 30% reduction we've seen in the past.
