Intel has been working in the field of wafer manufacturing for decades and has accumulated rich experience, which is incomparable in terms of seniority. As early as 2014, Intel began to manufacture products with 14 nm process technology. At that time, TSMC was still exploring 28 nm.However, as more and more products begin to use the 14nm process, the capacity of their own 14nm is becoming more and more tight! While expanding the 14nm capacity, Intel also intends to find a suitable OEM to alleviate the 14nm capacity crisis.
As we all know, the new generation of the sharp dragon 3000 series processor of AMD adopts the 7Nm process. Due to the fund, global foundries has already interrupted the research and development of 7Nm process, which led to amd having to switch to TSMC. After losing AMD, the biggest customer, global foundries' revenue and profits were greatly reduced, while a large number of 12 / 14nm production lines were idle.
Although AMD won't be able to use it, GlobalFoundries'unused 12/14 nm is still good for Intel. Intel's plan is to hand over some of the motherboard chipsets in a 14-nm process to GlobalFoundries, and then, at the right time, lower-end processors such as Celeron and Pentium to GlobalFoundries.
As for the 14 nm capacity that Intel has been released, of course, it is used to produce the 10th generation comet Lake core processor.
