EE Times writer Anton Shilov wrote an interesting piece about Intel's 10nm saga, you can read it over here. Over the last couple of years, a lot has been written about Intel's total failure to bring 10nm to the market. Even today, the company still isn't making 10nm in high volume, even though the technology was originally expected to be ready for mainstream in 2016. The article takes a look at where Intel's 10nm is today and how it compares to nodes from TSMC.
Many of Intel’s advertised 10nm characteristics are similar to those of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.’s (TSMC) first generation 7nm fabrication process (N7), yet Intel originally planned to start high volume production (HVM) of its 10nm devices in 2016, about two years ahead of TSMC’s N7 HVM, which would have given Intel a strong advantage over its rivals particularly in the HPC space..
