Should be interesting to see how much longer GF can stay at current capacity. For Malta's sake, let's hope they keep at it for awhile. Could they lease the fab to Samsung or TSMC in the future?

You'd be surprised. A large portion (like 30-40%) of TSMC's business is ancient nodes (> 28).

I wonder if GlobalFoundries will pivot to JFIL.

Also, "22FDX will have double the design wins this year and GF has restarted work on 12FDX. 12FDX is being developed in Malta on a slow ramp, they aren’t being pressured by customers for 12FDX yet." https://semiwiki.com/semiconductor-manufacturers/globalfoundries/273772-semicon-west-2019-day-3-global-foundries/
GTC2018 => 55DWINs, so double that >110 design wins.
and 12FDX is back, I guess?
