He has in no way put the blame on TSMC (did you actually watch the video you linked??). He doesn't even mention TSMC or 40nm manufacturing process once. The only time he mentions the fabs is to say that when the chips arrived from the fabs they found they didn't work, because the two Nvidia teams had messed up something "easy", because of a typical mistake with "easy" things that fit in between two important things and "anyone" can take care of it: no one does it in the end. It happens everywhere, it happened to NASA (km -> miles messup), it (supposedly) happened with CIA/NSA/FBI with the 11 S... Nevertheless a BIG mistake and Jen-Sun is admitting it to be his own fault.
