Well I hope Intel and Samsung get themselves in gear and competitive. What concerns me about Taiwan is its location and its cultural importance to China.

China could seize the country and strangle a large majority of tech to the world (AMD, Qualcomm, Apple, some Nvidia, etc). Something like that would either cripple most of the world or kickstart WWIII.

It'll start WW3.

The US has a defense pact with Taiwan.

Yeah 2nm. Marketing crap!
Since 50nm nm means nothing! Just marketing BS. Intel 10nm is in size comparable to TSMC 7nm. Manufacturers use nm and decrease them just to name new process but, as wrote above, has nothing to do with real dimensions.
I'm wondering how will start naming after 1nm.
BTW Si atom is 0.12 nm in size. In this case 2nm means 16 atoms across!!

World War III is coming, and undoubtedly China and Taiwan will be part and parcel of that: As detailed in the recent book "North Korea, Iran, and the Coming World War: Behold a Red Horse" (see it on Amazon or at Prophecy House's web site ), war is coming, not peace.
