In a press release, Intel said the yield of the 7-nanometer process is now 12 months below the companys internal target. The low yield means that the company is not yet able to produce its 7-nanometer process economically. Intel said the 7-nanometer process will not be available on the market until the second half of 2022 or early 2023.
Intel has fallen behind in chip technology in recent years, and the company is not satisfied with it. Im not satisfied with our 7-nanometer performance, Im not satisfied, said Bob swan, Intels chief executive, on a earnings call We already know the root cause of the 7Nm problem and dont think there is a fundamental obstacle, he added The company will provide further updates on the upcoming architecture day. Intels dominance over computer chips is also declining. Not long ago, Apple announced that it would adopt self-developed computer chips based on ARM architecture. Subsequently, it was reported that Samsung will also develop its own computer chips. Intels second quarter revenue was $19.7 billion, up 20% from $16.5 billion in the same period last year, and net profit was $5.1 billion, up 22% from $4.2 billion in the same period of last year.
