  • [TOMS HARDWARE] Intel's 7nm is Broken, Company Announces Delay Until 2022, 2023

    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.

    Here's the snippet from Intel's press release:

    "The company's 7nm-based CPU product timing is shifting approximately six months relative to prior expectations. The primary driver is the yield of Intel's 7nm process, which based on recent data, is now trending approximately twelve months behind the company's internal target."

    OUCH. That is a huge blow, this will really give AMD the extra juice to run away with the consumers. Looks like Intel is going to have to keep banging out those refreshes which is bad news as they cannot optimize their current fab much more to make it compelling. Then again....the fanboys may just keep Intel afloat.

      I'm no financial expert, but I think Intel's CPU division was still holding on to a deep set of reserves from then they did have virtually all of the OEM and Server space, now that AMD is really digging those markets away, the reserves are being spent more cautiously on refinements until a large breakthrough.

      Intel might just have to bank on having such a diversified portfolio and make a large investment in to their CPU division and just to the Zen route and try to design something new for the next process node and win in some other way. The Core architecture and its derivatives has been around for far too long and we need some spicy new innovations to keep a competitive market alive.

        Yeah I think that is the only thing they can do. IMHO Intel's complacency is really starting to show, first it was due to the surprise of Zen giving them a kick in the pants and now it has become obvious that they had far too much confidence in their current fab that they left it way to late to work on their 7nm products.

        I don't doubt Intel will retain the majority of the market share, but I am confident in saying it will continue to shrink and confidence in Intel products could be shaky compare to AMD options.

          When I was first reading the stories yesterday,All I could picture was the Intel ceo's laying on the floor holding a CPU or a discrete graphics card up in the air and all hollering "HELP! I'm broken and I can't get up!" while AMD is in the background saying "Don't worry Intel! We have your consumers backs!"

                  I don't really get the hate that Intel is getting for sticking to 10nm for so long. Why does it matter? As long as the CPUs are improving performance while staying the same price or getting cheaper, it doesn't make a difference.

                    The hate they are getting is because they told their investors @ several quarterly meetings that the 7nm process was right on track & there were kinda no issues with it being released on schedule.So,investors kept their money where it was,stock DIDN'T drop because people were like "Oh,well Intel's 7nm will be out soon & even better than AMD's" when AMD released ryzen & started showing some competition.When they Finally announced the delay, the stock dropped 18%.Kinda gives ya an idea they were counting on that in the investment side of things. https://www.techradar.com/news/intel...hind-amd-ryzen

                      Oh yeah ! I completely forgot about that. Intel had a lot of eggs in that 7nm basket which they kept leading people to believe was OK. I think I would pull out my investment to if someone come out one day and told me the tech I was told was fine was actually straight up broken.

                        That makes sense then for the shareholders to be upset that they're being lied to, but I still don't get the hate they're getting from regular people on the internet who aren't shareholders. Intel might not be releasing 7nm, but they are still releasing 10nm CPUs that perform better than the predecessors for around the same price as the predecessors.

                          It just feels like 1 betrayal after another. HOW long did they ignore meltdown/spectre and just keep making the cpu's with the flaw in them? Hmmm, here's a list of the Intel cpu's And then when AMD comes out with Ryzen and loads of cores @ an affordable rate,Intel's like "Oh! We can add cores,and we'll even have lots of cores on the same size cpu as AMD soon.Just give us time." So,we as consumers drank the Flav'R Aid again and either waited on them,or bought the latest offering thinking we might be able to upgrade (like AMD let us from the 2000 series to 3000 series on the x470 chipset even having support for pcie4.0)but what happens? We hear "Oh,so sorry,we're not even going to be able to make our own 7nm processor,we have to send out for it." Then the data breach that says they've been hiding MORE issues & doing nothing about them? people feel betrayed and it makes them feel angry. Edit: Wanted to add China's response to Intel's Life Alert call during the last meeting about the 7nm process.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh18qiJyT-M&feature=youtu.be
