There isn’t a month goes by at the moment that Intel steps from one catastrophe to the next.
They have been stuck on 14nm for years. 10nm is two years late, and still doesn’t work properly.
Last month they blocked DRAM overclocking on there non Z 490 chipsets. Which understandably didn’t go down well with consumers.
On Friday they announced that their move to 7nm has been delayed until 2023.
This time their investors have reacted, wiping 16% off their share value.
By the time Intel get to 7nm, saying they ever get it to work, AMD will have already moved from 7nm to 5nm and in 2023 will move to 3nm. All the AMD projects are on track.
Perhaps ‘doomed’ is a bit strong, but Intel need to get their act together, and quickly.
