  • Intel CEO spoke about the long-awaited transition to the 7-nm process technology

    While AMD is already producing its chips on the 7-nm process technology, Intel has been in the role of catching up. Even the new tenth generation of Intel Core processors will still be manufactured using 14nm process standards. Trying to reduce the backlog, the company plans to switch to a 2- or 2.5-year schedule for a complete upgrade of production, thereby “reviving” Moore’s law.

    Intel CEO spoke about the long-awaited transition to the 7-nm process technology

    According to Intel CEO Bob Swan, they intend to return to the schedule of major production updates every 2–2.5 years. He noted that the company is currently on the path to launching its first 7nm product - the Intel XE discrete graphics processor. There is still no exact release date, but the corporation focuses on 2021. Despite increased competition, Bob is optimistic, noting that the third quarter of 2019 was the best in Intel history with revenue of $ 19.2 billion. In this regard, the annual revenue forecast was increased by $ 1.5 billion.

    Bob Swan sees the main task in an early transition to 10-nm process technology, on the success and effectiveness of which all other plans of the company will depend. Bob hinted that Intel engineers are not only working on 7-nm process technology but have also advanced in five nanometers. Speaking about plans for 2020, he said that the corporation will have to make up for a lost time in order to satisfy customers' demand for processors, a deficit for which may arise as a result of the transition from 14nm to 10nm process technology.
