Intel Completes Development of 1.8nm and 2nm Production Nodes


Kaz

Recommended Posts

Quote

Intel has completed development of its Intel 18A (1.8nm-class) and Intel 20A (2nm-class) fabrication processes that will be used to make the company's own products, as well as chips for clients of its Intel Foundry Services (IFS) division, reports UDN.  

..

Intel's 20A fabrication technology will rely on gate-all-around RibbonFET transistors and will use backside power delivery. Shrinking metal pitches, introducing all-new transistor structure and adding backside power delivery at the same time is a risky move, but it is expected that 20A will allow Intel to leapfrog the company's competitors — TSMC and Samsung Foundry. Intel plans to start using this node in the first half of 2024.

Impressive leap considering how their 10nm development went.   It always felt like they were sandbagging when they had the lead.  That's a lot of tech combined to make it happen.

Here we go, Intel stealing our nanometers again..... :lachen:

I am curious of course, at what the future will hold in store for silicone like this though.  Considering Moore's Law, its a very interesting time for computer chips indeed.

Sounds like these will be made at the Ohio megafab Intel is building. 

 

Quote

According to web sources¹²³, Intel's Ohio megafab is a $20 billion project that spans nearly 1,000 acres and is the largest single private-sector investment in Ohio history ³. It will be a third major hub for Intel's manufacturing in the US, along with Arizona and Oregon ¹. It will also be a centerpiece of Intel's effort to restore US chipmaking prowess and compete with Samsung and TSMC ¹.

Intel announced the location of its megafab on Jan. 21, 2022, near Columbus, Ohio ²³. The semiconductor manufacturer plans to break ground on two leading-edge fabs by the end of 2022 and enter production in 2025 ²³. The megafab could eventually house up to eight fabs that could make it the world's largest chip plant ¹.

The Ohio megafab will benefit from federal and state incentives that aim to boost US chip production and reduce reliance on foreign suppliers. President Biden is pushing for legislation that would speed up Intel's work by providing tax credits and grants for chipmakers ¹.

OMG! My first thought was "Does this mean Intel will finally have a 5 and 7 nm chip of their OWN?" :lachen:

Yeah I found it weird they called their 10nm "Intel 7".

 

But I guess they all pull weird crap like that. For example, TSMC calls their enhanced 5nm, 4nm, just like Samsung called their enhanced 10nm, 8nm. It's weird.

lol, Remember when "enhanced" use to generally mean it was BIGGER? And people wonder why us old folks get confused when they start advertising the New Improved stuff! 🤣

Crazy. Hope I don't regret my recent Zen 4 purchases if Intel will be coming out with 2nm chips in 2025. I had planned to stay on AM5 and hoping Zen 5 would be great. But if Intel is putting out 2nm chips by then, I may have to switch.

Not sure why potential stuff 2+ years from now is a reason to regret a Zen 4 purchase in 2023. I think you'll have a great experience with AM5 as you'll also have an upgrade path through at least 2025.

 

Will be interesting to see if Intel can stay on target with these advanced nodes given their recent history/track record. As it is this year, they are only now moving to 7nm (Intel 4) products with Meteor Lake.

Hopefully intel will make some cooler chips going forward. Ill be picking the fastest that can be air cooled. 🙂

 

According to Intel, the ability to run at high temperatures is a feature.  They are unlikely to change their outlook any time soon.

(sigh) Somebody explain to Intel that Guys/Girls being hot is a good thing, Processors, Not so much.....

Cpu can maybe handle the heat. But the mosfet and capacitor around it don't like it.
