Report: Intel is cancelling its 10nm process. Intel: No, we're not [arstechnica.com]
Earlier today, it was reported that Intel is cancelling its troublesome 10nm manufacturing process [semiaccurate.com]. In an unusual response, the company has tweeted an official denial [twitter.com] of the claims.
[...] The company's most recent estimate is that 10nm will go into volume production in the second half of 2019. The report from SemiAccurate cites internal sources saying that this isn't going to happen: while there may be a few 10nm chips, for the most part Intel is going to skip to its 7nm process.
Typically, Intel doesn't respond to rumors, but this one appears to be an exception. The company is tweeting that it's making "good progress" on 10nm and that yields are improving consistent with the guidance the company provided on its last earnings report. Intel's next earnings report is on Thursday, and we're likely to hear more about 10nm's progress then.
