Intel might turn to Samsung for a chip production boost

Besides TSMC and its own foundries, Intel may have a new production source for its chips. A new report claiming the blue team is in conversation with Samsung has emerged, as the CEOs of the two companies met this past Monday.

According to The Korea Herald, Gelsinger went to Seoul, Korea, after attending the 2022 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. There, Intel's CEO and Lee Jae-Yong, vice chairman of Samsung Electronics, had the opportunity to talk about unconfirmed subjects, leading some to believe that it could be related to Intel using Samsung's foundries for producing chips.

In this meeting, there were reportedly many other Samsung executives, including Kyung Kye-Hyun, Samsung's co-CEO responsible for the chip business, Roh Tae-moon, chief of Samsung's mobile division, and other high-ranking managers from various departments within the company.

At the moment, Intel is manufacturing in its foundries and outsourcing some production to TSMC. However, adding a name such as Samsung to the list of suppliers would be an excellent way to improve production. After all, the Korean company is the second biggest foundry worldwide, only behind TSMC.
