    Intel kills off the 10nm process
    This is actually a good thing for the company

    "SemiAccurate has learned that Intel just pulled the plug on their struggling 10nm process. Before you jump to conclusions, we think this is both the right thing to do and a good thing for the company..."

    Intel is reportedly killing off its 10nm process entirely
    But chipmaker refutes report and claims it's making 'good process'
    https://www.theinquirer.net/inquire...ortedly-killing-off-its-10nm-process-entirely

    "Update
    Intel has refuted SemiAccurate's report in a statement given to the INQUIRER.

    "Media reports published today that Intel is ending work on the 10nm process are untrue," a spokesperson told us. "We are making good progress on 10nm. Yields are improving consistent with the timeline we shared during our last earnings report." µ"

    Very good news to hear from Intel camp. I was already tired of 10nm BS..

    It read like total BS and stock manipulation move this morning yet it looks like people took the bait and reported it even without any real source.

    "Update October 22, 2018@3:30pm: Intel has denied ending 10nm on Twitter. The full tweet is, “Media reports published today that Intel is ending work on the 10nm process are untrue. We are making good progress on 10nm. Yields are improving consistent with the timeline we shared during our last earnings report.” SemiAccurate stands by its reporting."

    Thread is locked, but interesting...

    AMD can take market share due to Intel killing its 10nm node

    The problem with 10nm, and 12-7nm, is at their first appearance in the market CPU frequency is not very high for the process. In most older cases by the time the current larger process has maxed out its clocks the new smaller nodes have a similar if not faster node. In the case of Intel the 14nm++(whatever) has been around for so long the clocks were so maxed out I am sure they are now well above what initial 10nm offers at decent yields. In time this could change but it is way too late now for Intel to take a step backwards to go forewords.

    the second issue is Intel needs a new architecture to combat future Zen cores.

    I should also note, one way for Intel to keep 10nm in the minds of stock holders is to release a rumor and then deny it as everything is going ahead ok rather than making a new statement!

    Interesting it's the guy who's been consistently saying Intel's 10nm is "broken" for years now. Maybe they fed him an anonymous inch knowing he'd make a mile out of it.

    Benefit 1, making a statement without making a statement as you say, benefit 2, let a seasoned detractor go too far and undermine his own credibility.
