According to media reports, Intel CEO Bob Swan revealed at a recent investment conference that 10nm process consumer products will be available in the shopping season at the end of this year, and server-level products will be launched in the first half of next year. In 2021, its 7nm process will also be launched to challenge TSMC’s 5nm products.
Bob Swan said that the technical specifications of Intel’s 10nm process were set too high, which led to repeated delays. In fact, Intel’s 10nm chip has indeed hindered the development of the company, so that competitors such as AMD have the opportunity to catch up. This is not a good sign for a company that has been accustomed to providing the fastest CPU.
Bob Swan stressed that the 14nm chip will continue to increase production capacity and is expected to fully meet market demand in the fourth quarter. After 10nm is launched this year, 10nm+ and 10nm++ will be launched in 2020 and 2021, and 7nm+ and 7nm++ will be introduced after 7nm in 2021.
