‘We firmly believe in this idea of democratizing AI, opening the software stack and creating and participating with this broad industry ecosystem that’s emerging. It’s a great opportunity and one that Intel is well-positioned to participate in,’ Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said on the company’s earnings call.
Five Nodes Progress
We remain on track to five nodes in four years and to regain transistor performance and power performance leadership by 2025. Looking specifically at each node, Intel 7 is done. And with the second-half launch of Meteor Lake, Intel 4, our first EUV [extreme ultraviolet] node is essentially complete with production ramping.
For the remaining three nodes … Intel 3 met defect density and performance milestones in Q2, released PDK [process design kit] 1.1 and is on track for overall yield and performance targets.
We will launch Sierra Forest in the first half of ’24, with Granite Rapids following shortly thereafter—our lead vehicles for Intel 3.
On Intel 20A, our first node using both RibbonFET and PowerVia, Arrow Lake, a volume client product, is currently running its first stepping in the fab. … On Intel 18A, we continue to run internal and external test chips and remain on track to being manufacturing ready in the second half of 2024.
