Intel's process to hit 5nm by 2015?
Subject: General Tech | December 6, 2012 - 03:44 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
DigiTimes reports that Intel continues to successfully shrink their process, with 14nm on schedule for about 12 months from now and aggressive shrinkage over the following years with 5nm being the plan for 2015. This is in line with GLOBAL FOUNDRIES who plan to have 14nm FinFET ready at about the same time and well ahead of both Samsung and TSMC. If that isn't far reaching enough for you, they plan to move to 18" wafers in 2017.
"At the end of 2013, Intel will enter the generation of 14nm CPUs (P1272) and SoCs (1273), while expanding its investments at its D1X Fab in Oregon, and Fab 42 in Arizona, the US and Fab 24 in Ireland, and will gradually enter 10nm, 7nm and 5nm process generations starting 2015."
