Semiconductors industry losing steam ! And Intel 10nm node.
Now only marketing leaks more than the semiconductors industry with each next node.
While Intel never mentioned the part by name in the earnings call they did talk about the 10nm process. Krzanich indicated that the company still hasn’t established the timing for the process. This makes a 2016 debut very unlikely. If the new process proves to be as problematic as 14nm then we’re quite possibly looking at another Haswell like situation with Intel refreshing Skylake parts in 2016. It’s too early to tell for sure but it’s evident that the whole semiconductor manufacturing industry is slowing down, not just Intel.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: No 10nm in 2016 !
