That's a stark contrast with Nvidia Fermi woes, or AMD/GFL 32nm snafu, or IBM late introduction of their 32nm node, or Sun's Rock architecture. But some people seem to have one standard when judging Intel execution and another to judge the rest of the market execution.

Well stated. Intel has been leading the microprocessor industry (with a few minor setbacks) for decades. My respect for them grew tremendously when they were briefly overtaken by AMD in 2005 but came roaring back in 2006 with C2D never looked back. The point is that they have dealt with adversity before and passed the test. I wouldn't worry about Intel. I only hope AMD can stay relevant and that Apple will eventually pose a threat to Intel on the CPU side of things. As usual, we all benefit from healthy competition.

it's the big name.
They have the brightest minds, because they can pay for them.
If the brightest can't figure it out, we're doomed.

That said, I think this is some random guy starting a rumor out of nothing.

At least two other 14nm fabs are in the works.

Nothing says process problems. But I suspect the op knew that.

Well factories will run production in late 2013 to the product launch in Q1 2014 for Broadwell and Airmont.

Uh oh.
Mind pointing out were either article says anything like what your saying , You can't because it doesn't say any such thing . They are talking Intel ireland

Historically D1D is the only fab that runs production that early in the development cycle. HVM fabs start coming online many months later.

Pushing out the startup of an HVM fab usually would indicate Intel is forecasting a slower volume of 14nm products is needed. It does not necessarily indicate a delay in 14nm development. Although personally, I won't be surprised to see it delayed somewhat.

This would be the OP's dream, but I highly doubt it.

The fact that we are even talking about this node for Intel, and its main rival can't even top a 45nm chip from 4 years ago is telling.

Piledriver is overall better than Nehalem. The problem is Intel has increased efficiency a lot since Nehalem.

Seems a response to market conditions, slowing market so slower ramp up.

Which Nehalem?

Intel had the i7 970 Hex core selling cheap at the end.

How is improving a problem? Do you want us to be stuck on 2008 tech, because that's what Nehalem is. 4 (or 4.5) year old tech.

There were no hex-core Nehalems. i7 970 is a Gulftown.

Not exactly true. Nehalem is the code name for the microarchitecture. It does not reference any particular chip. It's true the 45nm variety of Nehalem microarchitecture did not have any hex core chips but the 32nm variety (also known as Westmere shrink) did. The i7 970 is still considered Nehalem microarchitecture.

Intel has been spending capex like there's no tomorrow, betting on the come from where???

PC sales are losing vs tablet and smartphones, even the most enthusiastically reviewed "PC" on Amazon nowadays is the ARM based Chromebook...

Just to maintain volume status quo, intel will need AMD to go out of business...that's what I posted here a week ago, Barclay's said the same thing today (basically).

Which is why on the Q3 con call, Intel's CFO stated capex would be trimmed...in that context, delaying one or more of the fabs makes sense. Which begs the question, is TSMC's business model catching up to Intel's? It sure seems that way.

The irony: GF not doing well for many reasons but mainly because AMD isn't doing well, makes TSMC a stronger competitor for Intel.

Bohr also used a purely Newtonian physics model to predict the energy states of the hydrogen atom. Yeah it was right for hydrogen but that was about it. I'll stick with Schrodinger's wave equation.

Just kidding. I know what you mean.

Intel doesn't need AMD to go out of business, that doesn't stop the tablet/phone sales.

Adapt or die it is essentially, again Ivy Bridge and Haswell are majorly focusing on power consumption.

Most people wouldn't call 3770K a Sandy Bridge, even though the same argument would apply. Anyway, if you go up a few posts, you'll see that the original comparison was to a "45nm from 4 years ago"...

but they will do it anyways.
