US to provide Samsung with up to $6.6 billion chip subsidy for Texas expansion 202

In a new report from Reuters, we're to expect that the $6 billion+ subsidy will be unveiled by US Commerce Department Secretary Gina Raimondo, with the funding to go into the construction of four facilities in Taylor. One of these facilities is a new $17 billion chipmaking plant that Samsung originally announced in 2021, while another advanced packaging facility makes up another factory, and the third will be a new research and development (R&D) center.

Reuters adds that these billions of dollars from the US government and into Samsung's coffers will be used as an investment in "another disclosed location," according to the sources. As part of this new deal, Samsung will more than double its investments in the United States to over $44 billion.

One of the sources said that this would be the third-largest CHIPS Act program, only just behind TSMC, which was just awarded $6.6 billion on Monday. This will see the Taiwan semiconductor giant expand its investments by $25 billion to a whopping $60 billion, adding a third factory in Arizona by 2030 that will make 2nm nanosheet tech.
