Intel has serious problems with the premiere of processors made in the 10 nm lithographic process. The use of the new technology will enable the creation of systems with more compactly packed transistors, which translates into increased processor performance. The new lithographic process will also enable the production of systems that consume less energy. Intel representatives informed investors that 10 nm processors will appear on the market in 2019.
He believes that his competitors use the term 10 nm for marketing purposes. In turn, AMD recognized that the 12 nm process allows the production of processors that can easily compete with Intel’s designs. If you plan to modernize your computer in the next year, you do not have to cross Intel’s solutions. This year there will be processors made in the improved 14 nm +++ production process. These are the codes codenamed Whiskey Lake. For the end customer, it does not matter the lithographic process in which the system was made. Only the results achieved are counted. That’s why Intel emphasizes that the last generation of 14 nm processors is 70% more efficient than the systems made in the first version of this technology.
Intel shifted the premiere of 10 nm processors to 2019
However, large companies that care about the greatest possible computing power are waiting for the upcoming technological jump. Ensure it has Cannon Lake processors made in a completely new production process. It is true that Intel has already started small deliveries of the first chips made in 10 nm lithography. However, their mass production will start only in 2019. Many informers believe that Intel is struggling with many technological problems that result in poor performance. This means that many of the currently produced processors are simply unserviceable. However, this is not the first time that Intel is struggling with technical problems that were later resolved and ensured a huge advantage over its competitors. It is quite possible that the first 10 nm processors that will appear on the market will be much more efficient than AMD chips. Intel is convinced that many manufacturers have not mastered the true 10 nm technology, whether they are supposed to provide differences in the declared density of the transistors.
