If Sapphire Rapids is delayed like that . . . woof.Agreed. No point in launching it in 2021 if in fact Sapphire Rapids is launching the same year. Then again, everything could be delayed. Intel doesn't have the nest track record lately.
TigerLake is 10SF, and we know nothing about yields of that process relative to 10nm+. It appears as though yields of 10nm+ have been pretty awful, which is why IceLake has been so slow to reach market (and some announced SKUs were completely MIA). Or in the case of IceLake-SP . . . massive delays. TigerLake is supposedly showing up in more devices and in greater quantities, but now product availability has been pushed back and I don't even know what to believe anymore.Right, but how many wafers can they dedicate to the 8 core die with yields the way they are? Seems destined to be a paper product. The 4 core version is much more useful.
