1. Intel speeds up the delivery of 10-nanometer products in the first quarter

According to a Reuters report on January 11, Intel said on Monday that the 10nm IceLake platform, a server chip using the company's most advanced production technology, will accelerate mass production in the first quarter.


Intel’s mass production of 10nm chips has been more than three years late than the company’s expectations. This has given competitors including AMD an opportunity to seize market share. Recently, Intel also said it is considering outsourcing some products to foundries in Taiwan and South Korea. Navin Shenoy, executive vice president and general manager of Intel Data Platform, said on Monday: "Today is an important milestone for Intel. We will continue to accelerate the delivery of 10-nanometer products."

2. The new data center chip will achieve capacity ramp-up

Intel will increase production of new data center chips in the first quarter, and a new generation of chip manufacturing technology will also contribute important production capacity to it this year. Intel is the world’s largest manufacturer of PCs and data center server CPUs, but the company’s current 10-nanometer semiconductor manufacturing process and next-generation 7-nanometer manufacturing process capacity have been slow to climb. Competitor AMD has also been able to seize market share.


Intel also faces threats from activist investors: Private equity fund ThirdPoint is forcing the company to reassess its manufacturing strategy.

Intel plans to announce on the January 21 conference call whether the company plans to outsource part of its product manufacturing operations in 2023. At the same time, Intel also announced on Monday that the company's IceLake 10nm server chips will start to climb this quarter, but they have not disclosed specific output. The company also stated that it will launch 50 new processor designs for PCs this year, 30 of which will use the new 10 nanometer technology.

In general, Intel expects 10nm chip production capacity to exceed the previous generation 14nm chips at some point this year. The company also detailed on Monday the lidar sensor chip being developed by its Mobileye driverless subsidiary, which can help cars obtain 3D road conditions.

Mobile vice president Jack Weast (Jack Weast) said that this lidar chip will be produced at an Intel factory in New Mexico, and will integrate active and passive components on a single chip, which is impossible outside the chip factory of.

3. The new 10nm Pentium Silver and Celeron processors: focus on the education market

Intel also launched a new 10nm Pentium Silver processor and Celeron processor, mainly for the education market. This is also the first time that Intel has adopted a 10nm process in cheap mobile chips. Intel said that the new generation of Pentium Silver and Celeron processors have made great progress, with application performance improved by 35% and graphics performance by 78%.


The new generation of Teng Silver and Celeron processors will be prioritized in Chromebooks. Officially, they can improve performance by 144% compared to AMD's A6-9220C, web page speed can be increased by 162%, and Lightroom performance can be increased by 86%.
