Intel is once again rumoured to be offloading some chip production to TSMC, the Taiwanese Commercial Times reports (via Seeking Alpha). Following recent delays to its 7nm process, it’s said that the company is eyeing up an order of 180,000 wafers from the Taiwanese semiconductor company using its 6nm process node.

Now before we proceed, I’m usually hesitant to touch any story that claims Intel is outsourcing any major chip production to a third party. These stories come around every couple of months—and they have done for years—and so far Intel has never committed to any considerable numbers from a third party.
