Intel will release its first processors at 10nm by the end of 2019




In the fourth quarter of next year, the first PCs will be released with Intel processors made on a 10nm process. That is what Intel says when announcing its quarterly figures. Earlier, the company only announced that mass production had been postponed until 2019.

During the discussion of the quarterly figures , Murthy Renduchintala, a top executive at Intel, said that data center products quickly followed after the release of personal computers with 10nm processors by the end of 2019. In the coming year the company will continue to make processors at 14nm.

Despite the fact that the arrival of 10nm processors is still waiting, Intel has had a successful quarter. Sales amounted to $ 17 billion , 15 percent more than the same quarter last year. The profit was $ 5 billion, 78 percent more than last year.

At the business units that focus on data centers and comparable products, turnover grew by 26 percent, and that part of Intel now accounts for almost half of the total turnover. The largest source of income was the Data Center Group, which generated 5.5 billion dollars and grew by 27 percent. Turnover from the PC market grew by 6 percent to 8.7 billion dollars.

Intel has been making processors on its 14nm process since 2014. In recent years, the manufacturer has constantly improved that process, but Intel is having problems with the step to 10nm. The switch to the smaller process has therefore been postponed . Later this year, Whiskey Lake is expected to be the fifth generation of processors in the 14nm process.

AMD announced Thursday that the company is on track for the introduction of hardware at 7nm. The company wants to release a Vega-gpu for servers and workstations at 7nm this year and next year AMD will release its second generation of Epyc server processors, which are also made at 7nm.

When AMD with consumer processors reaches 7nm is not yet known, but that will be after the Epyc processors come true. The 7nm process used by AMD is similar to Intel’s 10nm process.
