Intel 14nm Broadwell CPU production delayed to early 2014

During yesterday's earnings call, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich revealed that mass production of the chip giant's 14nm Broadwell processors has been delayed one quarter, from late this year to early 2014. Krzanich explained they suffered poor yield rates due to a manufacturing issue that required further attention. Intel is confident that the problem is fixed and Krzanich also added that Skylake, Broadwell's sucessor, won't be delayed.
The delay has been caused by a "defect density issue" that impacts the yields, or number of usable chips, Krzanich said. He noted that once defects are discovered, Intel inserts a set of fixes. In the case of Broadwell, the fixes didn't deliver all the improvements Intel had anticipated. However, Intel now believes it has all the required fixes in place, Krzanich said.

"We have confidence the problem is fixed because we have data it is fixed," Krzanich said. "This happens sometimes in development phases like this. That's why we moved it a quarter."
