So, do we know if Intel is fabbing those modems on their 10nm process? Is the TSMC news just a rumour? I'm getting a little confused here.You could port the *Chipset* to TSMC, not the Modem, not at this stage of the development cycle. Porting a Modem to a different Fab or Node is about as much work as porting an CPU, if not harder for 5G.
I doubt Intel would have made the early announcement of 8160 if they were unsure of its 10nm by mid 2020.
There's rumours that they are, but that all stems from a job posting of theirs from late 2018.And unless Apple have been working on their own 5G Baseband in the past few years, I doubt they will have anything to show in 2021 or 2022.
