Intel Roadmap Outlines Dedication to Improved Semiconductor Manufacturing Processes

Category: CPU's
Posted: 06:09AM

An Intel roadmap that has recently been made available to the public shows that Intel is expecting technology innovation to continue in regards to shrinking its processors. Desktop processors that make use of 14nm technology are expected to be available sometime next year, while 10nm processors are likely coming late next year or early 2016. In order to make 10nm processors a reality, the semiconductor industry will have to go through the process of upgrading to extreme ultraviolet lithography, or EUVL, technology. Intel is also planning on offering 7nm processors sometime in 2017, which is amazing considering that, in 2007, the chip manufacturer was offering 45nm processors to consumers.
