Intel Announces Delay for 7nm CPUs
Paul Alcorn for Tom’s Hardware:
Intel announced today in its Q2 2020 earnings release that it has now delayed the rollout of its 7nm CPUs by six months relative to its previously-planned release date, undoubtedly resulting in wide-ranging delays to the company’s roadmaps. Intel’s press release also says that yields for its 7nm process are now twelve months behind the company’s internal targets, meaning the company isn’t currently on track to produce its 7nm process in an economically viable way. The company now says its 7nm CPUs will not debut on the market until late 2022 or early 2023.
AMD must be high-fiving themselves right now and Apple, well, appear to have made the right call with designing their own CPUs.
