Intel Announces Further Delay on 7 NM Process

Paul Alcorn, reporting for Tom’s Hardware:

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. 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 capable of producing its 7nm process in an economically viable way.

Good time to be a computer maker who has taken its destiny into its own hands with CPU design and fabrication.
