Intel has mass-produced 10nm this year, and the notebook already uses a tenth-generation Core Ice Lake processor, a 10nm high-performance processor for desktop and server spree, which won’t be available until next year. The 10nm process is a bit painful for Intel, which has delayed production for years, so will Intel skip 10nm and go straight to 7nm? Officials have denied rumors that they will not skip 10nm, which will also develop a 10nm plus 10nm plus process.
Recently, SA website Charlie (he is almost the most famous I black in the European and American media) published a paid article, it was revealed that Intel’s 10nm process was delayed again, desktop and server versions of products will be released a few months later, so there are rumors on the market that Intel will cancel the 10nm process, Directly into 7nm, after all, 7nm is 2021 mass production, 10mm processor delay for a few months is of little value.
Intel’s official statement was in response to such rumours, and the official once again announced its server roadmap, a spokesman said:
“Intel will continue to deliver the Whitley platform from COPPOer Lake in the first half of 2020 to Ice Lake (10nm process server processor) in the second half of 2020. Intel will also deliver Sapphire Rapids (Sapphire Rapids, 7nm Server Processor) after Whitley in 2021. “
At this week’s UBS TMT Global Technology Conference, Intel also talked about the 10nm extension, saying it would not cancel 10nm because It has now resolved the basic technical issues of the 10nm process (referring to the failure of the yield) and has entered the stage of mass production.
Intel said that although the 10nm delay edusd for several years, but Intel did not reduce the performance target to solve the 10nm process mass production problem, I believe that the 10nm process will be of great value, 10nm after the 10nm and other processes.
Simply put, Intel’s 10nm process is really awkward in progress, delayed for many years led to it and 7nm process is less than a year away, but Intel has spent a lot of investment to solve the 10nm mass production problem, now it is impossible to give up, after all, not all chips need 7nm process, And the future advanced process cost is getting higher and higher, a variety of processes are complementary.
