This morning Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) and TSMC (NYSE: TSM) announced that they are teaming together to create the fastest time-to-market and highest performance FPGAs to be built on TSMC's 16-nanometer FinFET (16FinFET) process, a program Xilinx calls 'FinFast.'

Commenting, Goldman analyst Donald Lu said, "We view the announcement as incrementally positive to TSMC shares as it suggests FinFET progress will be on par or ahead of Intel's (Nasdaq: INTC) major foundry customers'. TSMC's accelerated time to market of FinFET validates its superior execution and should help to deter major competitors, in our view. We continue to expect TSMC to gain market share and surpass Intel and Samsung LSI in capex in 2014-2015."
