Recently, Intel CEO Bob Swan said in a media interview that the 10nm delay for five years was due to the fact that the original goal was set too aggressive, especially when it was found to be more and more difficult to achieve.
Although the goal of doubling the transistor density in two years has not been achieved, Bob Swan emphasizes that Intel still maintains its leadership position. After all, the 10nm delivered today is actually 2.7 times higher than the previous generation of 14nm.
In addition, he also mentioned 7nm, pointing out that it is under development, promised to be launched within two years, and the transistor density will be at least doubled.
Talking about the future, Bob Swan pointed out that Intel only has a 30% share of the entire silicon chip market. He believes that artificial intelligence and autonomous driving will have explosive demand for high-performance computing, which will be Intel’s new business opportunities.
