Intel Announces Roadmap For Processors; 7nm Chips Arriving In 2021

Intel to launch 7nm chip products in 2021

The chip maker for the first time will use extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography so as to improve "multiple node generations". Data center server chips, which are a big part of Intel's plans going forward, will debut in the first half of 2020, the chipmaker said.

"The lead 7nm product is expected to be an Intel Xe architecture-based, general-purpose GPU for data centre AI and high-performance computing".

The company said it will release "multiple" 10nm chips throughout the rest of this year and next, including a general-purpose graphics processing unit, and specialized chips such as field-programmable gate arrays and its AI-focused Nervana processor.

French military frees hostages in Burkina Faso, two commandos killed
President Emmanuel Macron's office said a United States woman and a South Korean woman were also freed in the covert operation. Four kidnappers were killed and two escaped, he said.


The company has also revealed that it will use its Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) and 3D Foveros technologies for the Xe-based Graphics Architecture. As previously announced, Intel expects the first Ice Lake-based devices to be available to consumers in time for the 2019 holiday season. That, however, will follow Intel's first discrete GPU which it plans to launch next year.

At a recent company investors meeting, Intel announced plans to start shipping its volume 10nm client processor in June and shared first details on its 7nm process technology.

According to Intel, Ice Lake CPUs will deliver "approximately 3 times faster wireless speeds, 2 times faster video transcode speeds, 2 times faster graphics performance, and 2.5 to 3 times faster artificial intelligence (AI) performance over previous generation products". Following the Sapphire Rapids will come Intel's "Next-Gen" server CPU in 2022 that may be made using a variation of Intel's 7 nm process technology, depending on how production goes.

Sterling says he was ‘buzzing’ for former club Liverpool after European comeback
Liverpool have been English league champions 18 times but their last title came in 1990 before the Premier League was formed. He is aiming to be fit in time for the FA Cup final against Watford next Saturday. "They are completely focused".


Renduchintala acknowledged that 10nm left "a major gap" in Intel's process roadmap, which the company responded to by extracting more from its 14nm technology, resulting in two rounds of optimizations in 14+ and 14++.

Sources further mentioned that, in many other ways, Intel could set a trend with this development. These will deliver even greater efficiency gains projected at a 20 percent increase in performance per watt along with a four times reduction in design rule complexity.

Analyst Holger Mueller of Constellation Research Inc. told SiliconANGLE that Intel is under pressure to execute on its move to a 7nm process, especially considering the delays it faced in getting to 10nm. Intel has said that spending on servers "paused" while customers, who ordered at a frantic rate past year, work through their inventory stockpiles.
