Rik Myslewski, The Register, Intel reveals 14nm PC, declares Moore’s law ‘alive and well’, here.
Intel president Renée James, who shared the keynote stage with Krzanich, was adamant about the health of the Intel cofounder’s guiding legislation. “Moore’s Law has been declared dead at least once a decade since I’ve been at Intel,” she said, “and as you know – you heard from Brian – we have 14 nanometer working and we can see beyond that. I assure you it’s alive and well.”
According to James, that “alive and well” status will allow Intel make it down to 7nm – although her presentation didn’t include any projections beyond that node.
As anyone who has been following the chip-baking industry knows, getting down to 7nm without the advent of commercially usable extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography will be a daunting task – Intel CTO Justin Rattner admitted as much to The Reg just this May.
