Intel delays 7nm CPU, will not debut until late 2022 or early 2023

The result? The company now says that its 7nm CPUs will not debut on the market until late 2022 or early 2023.

Why? Intel CEO Bob Swan said that the company has identified a "defect mode" in its 7nm process that caused the yield degradation issues.

So, Intel has invested in "contingency plans" which will use third-party foundries. The company will use the external foundries for its nm Ponte Vecchio GPUs, the first graphic chips of the company. Swan added that in late 2021 or early 2022.

Intel's first 7nm server CPUs (Granite Rapids) will arrive in 2023.

In comparison, AMD's roadmaps outline its 5nm Genoa processors coming to the market before the end of 2022.

Rival foundry TSMC plans to be on the 3nm node by the time Intel will use 7nm.

The delays allowed competitors like MAD to wrest the process node leadership position from intel for the first time in the company's history.
