Intel planning to go 16nm in 2013?

This week Intel is talking about the 32nm Westmere, progress of this smaller process technology is going well and the first chips are expected in Q4 2009.

The chip giant showed off working 32nm Westmere systems this week, and according to FUD Zilla the company is hard at work on developing its next tick-tock products. After the 32nm Westmere you can expect the 32nm Sandy Bridge architecture, and if Intel manages to follow its schedule you should see 22nm chips in 2011 and 16nm chips in 2013.
Since Intel will do its best to continue its tick-tock strategy to bring a brand new core every odd year and a smaller, yet derived one every even year, with this in mind you can expect P1270 process and 22nm products in 2011. Intel has already revealed this plan publicly and plans to stick with it.

Since this is not enough and Intel wants to keep winning, it plans to introduce P1272 and 16nm CPUs in 2013 and probably 11nm in 2015 and so on. One thing is certain, Intel’s roadmap and execution in the last few years has been delivered with deadly efficiency.
