Intel says that after some delays its 14nm technology is back on track and provides some new details on the technology and the first Broadwell processors due later this year.
It took a bit longer than expected, but Intel has apparently worked out the kinks with the industry’s first 14-nanometer manufacturing process and started to ship processors based on the Broadwell architecture. At an event and webcast today, Intel executives provided some of the first details on technology and the chips built using it.
The 14nm technology will eventually be used in a wide range of products from smartphones and tablets to servers, networking and storage. But for today’s event, Intel focused strictly on the 14nm process technology and the Broadwell-Y architecture used in low-voltage Core-M processors, which it said will enable fanless designs that are less than 9mm thick.
