According to the road map before Intel, the Intel 4 craft will be their first process using the EUV lightning machine, the second half of the year, the EUV lightning machine purchased from the ASML is now officially installed in Ireland factory, this is Intel Second, Europe's first EUV process wafer factory.
Intel In the previous year, I invest 7 billion US dollars in the FAB 34 wafer factory in Ireland, mainly for Intel 4 process, the original process is 7nm, after the renovation of last year, it is equivalent to the 4nm EUV process of other manufacturers, too Intel's first process using EUV lightning machine.
At the end of January this year,Intel installed the Lithography Resist Track in the FAB 34 wafer, but it is not a real EUV lightning machine, and now it is now installing the EUV moment, preparing for the quantification of the second half. .
According to Intel's video, there are currently more than 100 ASML engineers to enter the factory to assist in install, and Intel also seizes engineers from the Oregon factory in Oregon, and teach them to use EUV lightning machine.
Intel did not announce the specific model of this lightning machine, but ASML's latest EUV momentum is super expensive, affiliates 1 billion yuan, and the investment in the advanced process wafer factory is billions or even tens of billions of dollars. .
Alder Lake 12 generation cool Rui, RAPTOR LAKE 13 generation cool Rui is Intel 7 process (10nm ESF),Meteor Lake 14 Generation Core Rui Rui and Code Granite Rapids will use Intel 4 technology, it is necessary to mass production in the second half of this year, but 14 generations cool launches will go to 2023.
