Commenting about the company's near-term plans, CEO Bob Swan revealed there will be nine new product introductions in 10nm this year. This will include next-gen mobile processors and based on Swan's comment it seems there will be no 10nm chip for the desktop market. That's something we've been hearing for some time now, the desktop market will likely remain on 14nm until 7nm arrives. The first 7nm product from Intel will be the Ponte Vecchio datacenter GPU late this year and Swan also added that 7nm CPU launches will follow in 2022:
Our process technology execution continues to improve. In Q4, we ramped our 10 nanometer production and continue to see yields improve. We are planning nine new product releases on 10 nanometer this year, including our next-gen mobile CPU, a 5G base station SOC, an AI inference accelerator, our first discrete GPU and Xeon for server, storage and networking.
We are also on track to deliver 10 nanometer-plus this year, our first performance upgrade on 10 nanometer. Our 7 nanometer process remains on track to deliver our lead 7 nanometer product, Ponte Vecchio, at the end of 2021 with CPU products following shortly after in 2022. We are also driving innovation in the next generation of computing.
