During its investor conference, Intel’s board of managers shared some information about their 7nm process of chip production. The company also mentioned a problematic 10nm node, which is now planned for 2019 (the architecture was originally announced for 2016).
When it’s 10nm, consumer processors will have priority, and processors for data centers will appear later. How long will Intel stay on the 10nm architecture remains to be seen, as more and more people announce 7nm chips.
Intel mentioned that 7nm EUV is developing in parallel with the 10nm process and that the company is currently very pleased with the progress of the development of 7nm architecture. The lessons learned from the experience with the 10nm process, and the company defined a different optimization, transistor density, performance and consumption. According to original, internal plans, Intel is very interested in publishing 7nm chips.
