Intel 10nm process has been a thorn in the side of the company since 2015. The process was supposed to release in 2015 but we have yet to see a proper chip. There have been a couple of laptop chips but nothing interesting.
We just got word from Semiaccurate that the Intel 10nm process was being removed from the roadmap. That would make sense keeping in mind the amount of time Intel has invested in something that we have yet to witness but if that is indeed the case then Intel is not ready to admit it.
The official Intel Twitter account mentioned that Intel 10nm process is still on track and that the reports that we have got are not true. The following is what the company had to say in this regard:
Media reports published today that Intel is ending work on the 10nm process are untrue. We are making good progress on 10nm. Yields are improving consistent with the timeline we shared during our last earnings report.
While this is what we would like to hear, we have heard this so many times that I find it hard to believe. In a recently leaked roadmap, we saw that the mention of 10nm was not there and we speculated that the process was moved from 2019 to 2020. But the most recent reports claim that Intel has abandoned the process altogether. I am not sure what is going on here but we should find out soon enough.
It will be interesting to see what the truth is and who comes out telling lies in the end. For more information regarding the Intel 10nm process stay tuned.
Let us know what you think about the Intel 10nm process and whether or not you think Intel has shot it behind the barn or not.
