The PC is not dead: Intel doubles output capacities of 14nm and 10nm

The PC is far from being “dead”. According to Intel, over the efforts of the past three years, the overall manufacturing capacity of 14 nm and 10 nm has doubled, which has barely caught up with demand. Intel’s four wafer factories are all in full production in Ireland, Israel, Arizona and Oregon. Not just that, Intel said its 10nm chip manufacturing capability would continue to be extended.


Intel’s senior vice president and manager of production and operations, Keyvan Esfarjani, said this is a promising investment, and Intel is on the move continuously.

Intel’s 10nm was expanded this year to the Core 11th generation, Atom P5900 (SoC for wireless base stations), etc.

At the same time, 10 nm SuperFin was also announced, achieving the greatest increase in single-node performance in the history of Intel and delivering performance improvements equivalent to full-node transitions.

Intel will reveal the 7nm advancement early next year, according to previous reports, and is currently planning plant space in its wafer fabs in Oregon and Ireland to prepare for the 7/5nm technology for mass manufacturing.
