Intel's updated roadmap: Two generations 14 nm to one side

The transition to production in the groundbreaking process of 14 nanometer is not easy for But it seems that the chip giant plans to continue sticking to some of the original timetables and launch next year processors And my employers in parallel

As part of an investors' meeting Held a few days ago, Intel unveiled its new product launch plans for the coming year. Intel's original roadmap referred to the launch of the first products based on 14 nanometer lithography More in 2013, But difficulties in the way of commercial scale production led to the leakage of plans for 2014, when Intel also managed with great difficulty - The first 14 nm processors were launched this year, But this is a minimal launch of a pair of processors M which will be available in a limited number of devices.

So when will another 14, portable and stationary, models come to the stores? Well, according to the updated platform, "Spring 2015" seems to be the intended time window. In other words - the second quarter of next year, plus minus a month. What is surprising about the whole story is her intention Adhere to some of its original plans and also launch the second generation of 14 nm processors (Skylake) during the second half of the 2015 year - in fact, a relatively unusual two-generation situation Different new ones will be available in several categories.

It is not inevitable that the plans for the Skylake generation will eventually be rejected, but Intel's willingness to perform such a "generation integration" seems to indicate a strong desire to provide an answer to the tough competition because the chipset In the market for ultra-portable devices (the market to which the " M), in parallel with the incomparability of other consumer categories to which the C- of the company.

A mid-table 2015, For mobile - parallel to it?

At the same time, also The grandiose plans of Chipzilla for the atomic chip family Its suffered a considerable rejection - the Cherry Trail generation for smartphones and tablets that will also be based on a manufacturing process of Will not come in 2014 as planned, but only somewhere in the middle of 2015. Accordingly, the Braswell generation, which will consist of atomic nuclei, Under branding And Celeron for the mobile and stationary market will be delayed and launched in the second half of next year.

That rejection will naturally also delay the company's roadmap to the atomic family - the Broxton generation, which is set to be the second in the 14 nm process and replace the Cherry Trail / Braswell (with a new processing core architecture called Goldmont) 2016, along with chips Of the SoFIA family that includes a built-in cellular modem to support In the category 10.


S programs To offer real competition in the smartphone world is taking another blow, it seems

Rejections of Undoubtedly disappointing, but hard to call them unexpected - what seems to have characterized the entire chip market in recent years is a considerable difficulty in moving forward in production technologies and schedules pushed forward time and time again. Chances are, in the foreseeable future, with the shift to even more "traditional" chip manufacturing technologies, we will experience a strengthening of this difficulty - at least until you reach some breakthrough that will change the way chips are manufactured.

  1. Israel was granted the right to produce 10 nm in Kiryat Gat from the first in the world. At present, the factory at Micron is abstracted to the point, and is preparing the infrastructure for the arrival of the machines at 2016 for the 10 nm. Israel does not produce 14 nm, which skipped directly to 10 because Ireland and other places were given the right to upgrade the factories across Israel as most people remember. Obviously there are delays and problems as with any technology, producing such small gates causes many problems in the field of electrical leakage and manufacturing processes (those who studied the plasma field and semiconductor production).
    Producing, or rather "growing" a processor, takes about 8 weeks per dose and, presumably, experiments on trials take long periods of time.

  2. I'm sorry to disappoint you, but now the two factories in Kiryat Gat are about to join in preparing for production in 14NM, don't know where you decided to skip it in Israel ...

  3. Very annoying to the new 4 generation processors, the difference between I3 and I5 is negligible… and still 2 cores are just cheating!
    Only Demi generation 3 had QM or MQ with real 4 cores…

    What's the difference with the I5 + I7 Vpro?
    Also, the batteries only have 4 cells, even though the processor needs less electricity. What do they care about selling 6 cells as well?

  4. OR2000 You are partially right, it is true that the two factories are connected but there will be no production in 14NM in the country but a straight skip from 22 to 10.

    That's fine, I'm even more sorry for the nonsense you write on the internet without a basic knowledge or particle of information.
    Come and ask you a little basic question:

    1. Do you work at Intel? No
    2. Do you have normal friends who work at Intel? No or supervised by contractors for the new infrastructure preparation at the former Micron plant? No
    3. Do you have relatives in Intel? No
    4. Have you ever read at least articles about Intel, including YNET? No

    Why not everything? Since what you wrote is bordering on serious nonsense and will soon explain why, I hope I did not hurt you because it was not the intention but it is worth a person to know that before he writes a full response to the nonsense again sorry, you will do some homework before me.

    Let's just say I have a lot of yes to a lot of the questions I listed above, let's get started… how exactly? you will never know.
    But here's the explanation:

    Intel bought Micron employees a few months ago, with the deal ripening for over a year. The goal? Or let's start from the beginning, Intel vetoed Micron's plant, which paid for the place and the factory in advance, and vetoed who the company was allowed to purchase the plant. They reached a crossroads where they realized that 10 nanometer technology would be in the country, so the employees, after filtering out of course, passed engineering exams and psychological assessments before hiring Intel. They are still with a badge that distinguishes them from other employees for general knowledge.
    All this by accepting the grant from the state, in order to establish the bringing technology here, you guessed it correctly: 10 nm.

    14 nm technology has been around for a long time, do you know that it takes years and loads of time to build infrastructure and replace machines yes? Any machine manufactured for a particular process is not upgraded as you think these are usually replaced… which is a very prestigious process.
    As a disadvantage there are machines that cost close to $ 1 million !!! Yes yes ... a single machine, which cost 60 $ 1 million my friend, and there are a few dozen, but they are the top in the top and there are several hundred other probably cheaper.
    The 10 nanometer machines will break record as expected and rise in 2016 close to 80 $ million and may even reach the 100 million threshold.

    So… when Intel received the grant just a few months ago because of their move with the acquisition, they are just throwing away all Micron's equipment and are preparing the infrastructure at Micron's factory for 2016 when the machines arrive, it's 10 manufacturing technology.
    For heaven's sake, there's even a neat article on YNET for the average layman. Come on, this is already making fun of yourself.

    Think for yourself, 14 nm is already manufactured in the US and Ireland (which have recently been upgraded and are still embedding the technology overseas ... let's just say that) So how is this relevant to us exactly? True, irrelevant.
    Thanks to the state grant, Intel is going to stay here for about 2029 probably due to the huge investment in 10 nanometer production, what's the beauty of that? That the 10 nm production is very parallel to even smaller production with the same technologies and so ... it's long term.

    The code and name of our production line in Israel has already been set and it will start running towards the end of 2015 and maybe the beginning of 2016 depends on the times.

    Intel replaces production line and production technology every two years and it is billions of dollars per factory.

    Besides, a tip from me? If you respond to forums and recommend to people or write resolute opinions or supposedly diffuse from your broad knowledge, I encourage you to start taking a good good look at what you write and others? Well check what you write well.

    Start reading economics, marketing, and in general… how companies operate. There are enough books and material on the internet and you will understand what the economic model behind each company is. Than to get mad at nonsense that has been around for nearly Numx years.
    What, you thought you only recently started working on you in many areas? Do a favor. Because of the availability of the Internet, you have a slightly faint idea of ​​life and what's going on in it than before.
