Intel announced the delay of mass production of 7nm process processors
The well-known chip manufacturer Intel revealed in its financial report last night that Intel’s processor products based on the 7-nanometer process were delayed by 6 months from the original schedule.
At present, Intel’s new processors are mainly based on the 14-nanometer process, because although the products based on the 10-nanometer process are released, the production capacity is insufficient.
The consequence of this is that the 10th-generation processor products are still mixed with 10nm/14nm processes so far, and this situation seems to be maintained for 1 to 2 years.
Intel’s competitor, AMD has previously launched a 7-nanometer process, and companies such as Qualcomm and Samsung also use the 7-nanometer process for mobile processor products.
The current direction of Intel’s efforts is to push all processor products to the 10-nanometer process node, which still puts greater pressure on Intel.
The company’s next desktop processor products will still be based on the 14-nanometer process, and the notebook platform should all be based on the 10-nanometer process.
In the Q2 quarter of next year, Intel may release the Alder Lake processor based on the 10-nanometer process. As for the 7-nanometer process, the release time is unclear.
Intel only said that the mass production time will be delayed by more than half a year than the company’s original plan. Of course, in the coming time, Intel will continue to delay it. Investors were dissatisfied that Intel was too slow to follow the advanced technology used by competitors.
