There are claims that Intel’s full 10-nanometer process chip is equal to the TSMC 7N chip. TSMC seems to be 40% better in transistor density with its 5N plus chip and will make more improvements with a 4N chip.
Even if TSMC process descriptions are just marketing, TSMC has superior transistor density, lower costs and greater energy efficiency.
