To solve this problem, Intel also announced a new expansion plan at the beginning of this year, adding $1.5 billion in capital expenditure to expand 14nm capacity. In addition, Intel also confirmed to seek the help of third-party manufacturers to improve the proportion of outsourcing and solve the capacity problem.
Rumors have been generated. South Korean media reported more than once this year that Intel would hand over 14 nm CPU to Samsung,In July, Samsung said it had agreed to OEM a 14nm rocket Lake desktop processor, which will be released in 2021, replacing comet lake-s, which will be released early next year。
Recently, it said that Samsung has reached an agreement with Intel to supply the latter with some 14 nm CPU processors to alleviate the shortage, and help expand Samsung's non memory chip business.
But after the Korean media reported, Intel official sent a rumor yesterday, the response content is very simple, that is to say, the media rumors about Samsung OEM Intel CPU are false.
Intel's official rumor refutation is not surprising. Although Samsung and Intel have 14nm technology, the media who do not know the technology must think that it is very simple to switch the same generation of CPU technology, but it is not easy. We said in the previous report that Intel's CPU architecture and technology are deeply bound, and its own technology serves its own products, so even if Intel really needs to outsource C Pu, other manufacturers can't connect Intel 14nm CPU——In front of Intel's 14nm 5GHz technology, TSMC and Samsung's 16 / 14nm technology are brothers。
