Intel Ramps Up 14nm Production To Meet High Demand For Its Processors πηγή→wccftech
Intel ramps up 14nm production by assigning a Copy Exactly fab in Vietnam, customers can expect shipments as soon as October 8th
There was even speculation that the company had tapped TSMC to produce some of its chipsets – utter nonsense of course – but the truth wasn’t appetizing to some pundits either. As it turned out it had to fab a certain chipset at the 22 nm process – a step back from its current, insanely optimized, 14nm++ tech. There were also concerns that demand for Intel Xeon processors on the 14++ node is so high that ecosystems might actually move to EPYC if they are able to cater for them. HP was one such vendor that had sent out an advisory warning clients about shortages of Intel CPUs.
This recent update appears to be Intel responding to the state of the market and to allay any fears of the company not being able to meet demand in anything except the immediate short term. The company is going to be ramping up production in a new facility in Vietnam built on the Copy Exactly! philosophy and one that will be able to cater to certain 14nm products out there right now. The ramp is supposed to complete very soon and customers can expect delivery of chips as soon as 8th October – which is just 2 weeks away.
