Intel intends to return to a 2 to 2.5 year process cadence.
“We want to get back to a two to two-and-a-half year cadence,” says CEO Bob Swan (pictured), “and shortly after launching 10, our expectations is we will have our first 7 nanometer product launch in the latter part about 2021 with CPUs to closely follow. So 10 is ramping. We will go to 10+ for clients and to 7 on a two year cadence in 2021.”
Intel’s 10nm process was originally slated for 2016. It is generally considered to ve as advanced as TSMC’s 7nm process which is the most advanced process in production.
Intel does not appear to have suffered from the delay to the introduction of 10nm. Last week it announced 2019 revenues of $72 billion and its data centre market share does not seem to have been eroded by AMD’s server chips which use TSMC 7nm.
