In the past 50 years of history, AMD has lagged behind Intel for most of its CPU process, not because AMD doesn’t work hard, but Intel is too strong, having the most advanced process on earth for more than two decades, and officials have previously stated that their manufacturing process is three and a half years ahead of its rivals. Of course, this is the time before 22nm node.
But in the node after 14nm, Intel encountered some problems, 10nm process delayed energy production, 14nm process had to improve three generations, is still the main force of high-performance CPU, which also gave AMD the opportunity to surpass, in 2017 AMD only debuted the 14nm rylong generation, This year is the first 7nm Rylong three generations, the process has been two generations ahead of the opponent.
Even so, AMD has not lost its awe for Intel, with Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager of the data center business unit, telling the Barclays Technology Conference that “Intel is a great company, and sooner or later the problems they have encountered will be solved.” “
Forrest Norrod’s idea that AMD will not base its hopes of success on the failure of its rivals is foolish – in fact, it’s the idea of AMD CEO Su Zifeng, who has previously expressed the same attitude in media interviews. Point out that AMD’s success is on its own efforts, not waiting for the opponent to make mistakes and fail.
