At a datacenter-centric event for analysts and press, Intel datacenter chief Navin Shenoy deflected questions about the state of the chip giant's troubled 10nm process. EE Times was there and heard Shenoy say that customers don't care about nanometers but about system performance on their workloads:
Wall Street analysts were hungry for information on Intel’s much-delayed 10-nm process. The event’s host, Navin Shenoy, general manager of Intel’s data center group, deflected the questions that a decade ago would have been a cue for an Intel exec to brag.

“I don’t talk to customers about nanometers; customers care about delivered system performance on their workloads,” said Shenoy, noting that Intel delivers that through many vehicles.
After multi-year delays, Intel's 10nm processors are still more than a year away from mass production so the chip maker is doing whatever it can to focus attention on other aspects than its manufacturing arm.
