Intel has been the king of Silicon Valley for a decade now, and in the production of chipsets, no company can match Intel. but the same cannot be said for its performance. As it so happens, this year its performance has been taking major hits and the company has seen an extreme loss in terms of market shares when compared to its rival AMD.
Hence, the company has decided to increase the production output of its 10nm nodes which seems to be the only surviving factor for the company. As all of its upcoming line-ups are based on 10nm nodes, intel seems to be aiming to output twice the amount of processors compared to previous years.
When compared to intel’s previous year’s charts, in recent three years its production has doubled. Yet, according to sources, the company is still unable to meet market demand. And because AMD is releasing its new processors one after the other, Intel might be in a pickle here.
“Over the last three years, we have doubled our wafer volume capacity, and that was a significant investment. Moving forward, we’re not stopping… We are continuing to invest in factory capacity to ensure we can keep up with the growing needs of our customers.”
The demand for Intel’s 10nm process nodes is increasing in the market. The company is looking to increase their production yet more. The company currently has manufacturing plants in both the United States and Israel that focus heavily on creating Intel’s 10 nm products. Manufacturing plants in Arizona and Oregon focus heavily on creating these 10 nm products and have increased their production capacity to accommodate these new products.
“10nm progress is coming along quite well. We have three high-volume manufacturing operations that are going full steam ahead to see how we can do more, better and faster, and continue to support our customers.”
