מנכ"ל Intel The new Pat Glasinger reveals an exciting plan for the company for the coming years that includes factory expansion, collaborations and the start of production of chips with more advanced technologies
Just last month, she won Intel Global to a new CEO, Pat Glasinger. Pat worked for many years as a senior engineer at Intel until he left for new adventures and was called back to fulfill the most important role an engineer can play in the company and was appointed CEO.
Last night there was an important journalistic event, perhaps the most important that ever took place Intel In recent years in terms of the company's vision and plans for the future. This event is significant from any traditional roadmap presentation we are familiar with and includes very clear and very large-scale goals.
The recent period has reminded more than anything of the Western world how much it depends on the manufacturing capabilities concentrated in the East, especially the chip manufacturing capabilities. A combination of scarcity, high silicon prices and the concentration of productive power in the hands of a few players leads the way Intel To announce drastic moves in the world of chip production which will give power back to the West.
First and foremost, announces Intel That will invest a whopping $ 20 billion in two new manufacturing plants in the U.S. Arizona. These plants that are going to use highly advanced manufacturing processes will not only serve the Intel, But are also expected to serve external customers.
Indeed yes, Intel is also going to outsource the creation of silicon in its new plants for every require. This means creation of chips in X86 architectures, or even ARM And RISC V. Intel Undertakes that its customers will have access to the same stabilizing tracks and advanced equipment in it Intel Itself uses its chips.
Advanced to 7 nm
Intel officially announces that the waves of difficulty and technical obstacles in the mass production of 7 nm chips Behind her. Glasinger noted that the company's production technologies at 7 nanometers have reached maturity and that in the next quarter the company will begin large-scale production of chips based on this technology, which at least in terms of transistor density is expected to be the most advanced in the world for micro. Processors (Also more than that of TSMC Now).
One of the girl products of the 7 nm process of Intel Expected to be Meteor Lake. Processors These ambitious will get body and shape already in the coming months so that Intel can continue to develop them towards a safe and mass launch already during 2023. Processors These will contain a variety of different pieces of silicone that will be connected together to a super-processor.
In the near future (2023) plans Intel Collaborate with Taiwanese silicon giant TSMC. This collaboration mainly means that Intel will receive some of TSMC's advanced production lines in order to produce these chips for clients in a variety of market segments. At present, it is not yet known which specific products Intel Will produce in factories TSMC.
There is also a collaboration with Samsung that will go into effect in the near future for chip production, and possibly also the supply of NAND products and memory. We know that Samsung is now producing graphics cores for NVIDIA In the RTX 30 generation therefore there may also be a collaboration with Intel And its video cards which will be launched later this year.
Glasinger noted that "the goal of Intel Is to provide customers with leading products regardless of where they are manufactured. Intel Will continue to use its factories for the needs of the creature. "Before at least, it sounds that Intel You also use other factories to complete a consonant until full production power returns to it in the future.
IDF conference returns, cheers
Those familiar with the world of hardware conferences and events will surely remember the IDF. IDF Conference of Intel Is an event that has always featured the company's senior engineers of the products they work on and a lot of juicy technical information behind the products we receive. The first IDF-style event is expected to take place in October in San Francisco. In our time it is a bit difficult to know what the situation will look like until then so the event can be physical or digital. His name will be Intel ON.
Summary - Back to the glory days?
The intentions of Intel Very clear as a result of this incident. In the last two years she has invested Intel Huge sums are renewing and enlarging its production lines for the next generation of processors, and this can be seen with the announcement of 7 nm and the launch of Meteor Lake approaching slowly. Intel Invests so much in expanding its plants that it will even enable advanced strip production for companies that now useTSMC In order to create chips and this is a very interesting move.
There are two names that of course were not heard between the same important announcements and the two major competitors of Intel - AMD andNVIDIA. These silicon giant triangles do not make assumptions for each other and we do not expect to receive guests too easily for AMD andNVIDIA In factories Intel The new ones to be established. Who knows, maybe this is still an option, if only to take some of the creature out of the East and move it to the West.
Another thing we have not heard of is the creature outside the United States. We know that only recently have large-scale expansion works been done at the plant Intel In Kiryat Gat. We hope to hear in the future about more plans to create in the country, although we know that the development itself in the country has also picked up speed in recent times when Israel is at the forefront of supplying the minds behind architectures Intel Advanced. We would like to take this opportunity to wish Intel success in its large-scale programs and hope that we will all enjoy more silicone, fair prices, and fresh technologies in the future.
