To say who is the evergreen tree in the CPU field, it must be 14nm. Since the launch of the first 14nm product in 2014, Intel’s process has been used for 7 years. You must know that in the rapidly changing semiconductor field It is extremely rare that the process level can be maintained for 7 years, but the 14nm used on the 11th generation Core processor is still very different from the original 14nm. Nowadays, as Intel vigorously puts into production a new generation of 10nm process processors, the 14nm processors, which have become stronger this year, will finally take a back seat.
Intel executives introduced Intel’s future development plans at an investor meeting in Morgan, saying that Intel has already put into production three 10nm fabs and will increase production of more fabs in the future to increase 10nm production capacity. As mobile processors and other low-power processors enter the 10nm era, the share of 10nm processors has also increased. It is expected that in 2020, the production of 10nm processors will exceed 50% for the first time, becoming the main force of new processors .
With the full application of 10nm processors, the 14nm process processors that have been developed over 7 years will soon come to an end. The 11th-generation desktop Core processors in the first half of the year will still use the 14nm process, while the 12-generation processors expected to be released in the second half will be The 10nm process will be used, and the 12th-generation processors will also use Intel’s latest 10nm enhanced process to further release the processor’s performance.
Although the 14nm process is very classic, it has passed 7nm after all. Even if it is squeezed to the limit, more transistors cannot be inserted. This time the reduction of the core of the 11th generation Core processor is a good proof.
