    Extremely aggressive, but they just had their best year/quarter and CAPEX has increased to meet the demands. If they didn't, Samsung would beat them to it. Both Asian foundries are now more aggressive than Intel!

    Both are fighting for Apple CPU sales for mobile. Whoever can get it down quickest will win on that front enough 10nm will be expensive, would not like to guess the costs involved to go to 5nm.
