    Intel 14nm versus Samsung 14nm

    The legend of Intel being two process nodes ahead of the rest of the industry is quickly coming to an end. To come to terms with this you need to do an apple to apple comparison which is what I will do right here, right now. First and foremost let’s compare SoC silicon delivery since SoCs are driving the semiconductor industry and will ...

    • Last month it was TSMC at 20nm This month it's Samsung at 14nm Too bad you're floating the vaporware pipe dream to try and look relevant. By time that ANY arm foundry has production on 14nm Intel will be onto 7nm.

      I'll say it again. It must suck to have a web site with so few views that you have to troll message boards to get people to read it.

    • Samsung don't have a 14nm. They are planning to use 14nm FinFETs on a 20nm layout which is not the same as Intel's genuine 14nm/14nm transistors/layout process. Intel's 14nm process will be genuinely smaller than all the pseudo foundry 14-16nm processes planned. What is about the ARM ecosystem that it breeds the most delusional sociopaths ?

      'In regards to 14nm wafer cost I give that to Samsung hands down.'

      LOL, yeah with 10% wafer yield just on their 20nm backend they are off to a great start LOL ;-).

      Samsung Electronics plans to build up foundry capacity of 30,000 wafers operating at 20nm, signaling that it is joining rival TSMC in the process race, according to industry sources.

      Samsung has stepped up the development of its 20nm process node, and already shifted a portion of R&D resources from 14nm to 20nm, said the sources. Samsung is looking to start offering 20nm process technology in early 2014, the sources indicated.

      The sources did not identify how many options Samsung will offer at 20nm.

      The current yield rate of Samsung's 20nm is estimated to be as low as 10%, the sources noted. At TSMC, its 20nm facilities are operating at 20-30% yield rates, the sources said.

      TSMC has disclosed plans to initiate volume production of 20nm chips in early 2014. The foundry will offer only one process at the node.'
