Intel Might Drop 10nm Node for Desktop Processors, 14nm Until 2022?

The 28 core atm is reportadly 25-35% good one (rumour and about 6 months old now)  Dunno if that was the 8180 or just 28 core

 

 

If the density isnt much better. I find it unlikely for a 28 core to get that great yields

 

There is offcourse salvage and lower clocks. Kinda like how Jaguar chips had extra CUs for better salvage yields.

We still don't know what size of dies Icelake server will launch with. Right now Cooper Lake and the next platform (Eagle Stream?) is in the validation. We haven't seen anything above 8 cores on Icelake in any of the filings or testing results, to my knowledge.

You guys remember the 5775C and the like one person that actually bought one, and the like 2 reviews it got (mostly for the igpu)? If we see 10nm desktop it's going to be a repeat of that, I fully agree with  Charlie here. Go ahead, think back to 5th gen i5/i7....intel would rather you not and just remember good ol skylake aka 6th gen.

*raises hand* I bought one. Well, I got the 5675C when it was current, and only more recently did I manage to find a cheap 5775C to go with it. The initial transition to 14nm was also a problem for Intel, very different from the 14nm we have today. Having said that, the 5675C and 5775C were odd balls in that they were more or less the mobile parts done on desktop. They had the L4 cache of Iris Pro, and this made them very interesting CPUs. Skylake was better on architecture, but that cache meant Broadwell desktop parts (not HEDT) punched far above their weight in memory intensive compute applications.

 

I actually would like to see that. Take Ice Lake, put it on a desktop package and let me overclock it.

intel might of gained 18% ipc on ice lake but they also lost about 10-15% in clocks.

Yes, but we have to consider architecture and process as two parts. Intel 10nm sucks, but what would that same architecture do on 14nm?

isn't it a lot of work to get a arch on a new node, AFAIK its not some copy pasta.

 

would it be worth the cost to re-engineer ice lake arch to 14nm for only a 1-2 year sales window?

 

IDK what they are going to do, all I know is they will not like it.

Yea I doubt there's anything close to the quality of the 5775C silicon yielding yet. If 5775C was truly mobile grade silicon then we'd be looking for the H series laptop parts to be around and that's not happening yet. Just U for now and everyone keeps saying it's not going to scale much further other than for server. The real oddball to me was that no one seemed to question that those parts and (R variants) were basically all of 5th gen desktop, no K skus or nothing. And nearly no one could get one. You are the first person I even sort of know that has one, let alone even knows about 5775C and brethren. Almost no one even stopped to think about it, including hardware outlets. And then intel quickly rolled out 6th gen.

Intel's 14nm chips are doing very well, even against 7nm.  

 

I'm curious to see what benefits 7nm will give Intel, if they can continue to refine these processes so well or if there is a diminishing returns as we get smaller on current materials.

 

AMD and Intel are going to bump up against a hard limit soon, making them basically equal.  Who finds the next perfect material first?

Either material or whole new approach to chip design. Just look what GPU designers did when they were forced to use 28nm. Instead of just shrinking things and cramming more shit into the chip, they actually made chip's processing more efficient. And what boosts there were during that time. If everyone could just go to 14nm I don't think we'd seen such huge leaps. Another good example is Ryzen. It's a very radical approach to computation units which yields amazing results. Sure more cores helps and so does smaller node, but most of gains came from well designed core(s).

It sounds like the 10nm yields are poor (<30%??, that's so low!). Anyone know why the process has been so difficult for Intel?

That's the position they're in though. They can either keep re-hashing Skylake, backport Sunny Cove, or... I'm not sure what other options there realistically are. For sure it is not a trivial exercise. If they were optimistic 10nm would be working by now it may be late to start the process. If they were pessimistic, maybe they already started doing this in the background as a backup plan.

There was no need for a K sku since the C parts were unlocked anyway. It was close to a paper launch and extremely late, I think only months before Skylake. I actually bought my 5675C after I had already bought a 6700k. Reviews at the time did concentrate on the iGPU performance. I was kinda hoping to set some overclocking records there, but then Skylake Iris Pro parts that came later had more CUs and kill that part of my plan. I still hope to set some records for that generation CPU, hence only getting a 5775C last year, as the HT does make a difference there.

Their original 10nm process was very aggressive and quite simply it blew up in their face. Just didn't work. They were forced to nerf it, but even then it wasn't smooth sailing.

I pray Intel gets their sh*t together soon. We don't need AMD taking Intel's dominate position they were in before Ryzen... 


Currently have a Zotac Amp 1080 TI with a Ryzen 5 1600.

Nothing fancy but it does well for 4k gaming.

I don't think its a issue just that AMD will take a good chunk of market share but around 2022 intel should be fine.

So how is intel going to make GPUs on 10nm if they cant create large enough dies for CPUs?

 

Perhaps 10nm is better at big dies and lower clocks and voltages?

you think thermal density has been causing them the problems

all seem to be clocked way lower

 

maybe they know they need to keep the clocks now to remain competitive

 

and part of me thinks they are going to use their own chiplet design very soon(omni directional emib/foveros) but try to keep clocks up and figure away to raise ipc for time being

along with trying to fix some of these security issues

dont worry, AMD lasted 8-5 years on practically pennies, and returned with Ryzen. 

 

and Intel is a lot wealthier than AMD, so i dont think you need to worry about Intel going away. they have a lot of time and money to get their shit together.

unless the density is twice that of 7nm, i dont think so. 

 

7nm TSMC can get quite toasty around 4,5 ghz on Zen 2 and at that point thermal density becomes an issue. 

 

so maybe? the clockspeed regression is probably a factor of them increasing IPC in the design and smaller nodes simply not giving good clockspeeds. 7nm isnt very impressive, and 7nm+ i dont think gave much improvement in clockspeed either.

Aren't they just higher TDP variants with higher stock clocks? Don't see how that's a scam, it'd be more for people who don't want to touch the CPU at all. Given that people buy Intel K chips and never OC them at all (just buy them for the higher stock clocks), it's not too surprising. 

On the 2000 series they had XFR and PBO IIRC, I forget what/if there was a difference on the 1000 series.

The node yields. It's just the original yields were about .5%. Not 5% but .5% and they couldn't yield a iGPU at all. They've dialed back a lot of the technical advances and while they can show off silicon at the density they've claimed, reality is that it isn't that much more dense than 14nm and clocks a lot worse. And that was just to get the node out the door. Yields are still going to be terrible and a single server die likely is yielding maybe 20% per wafer. Maybe. Full die SKUs from Icelake Server parts are going to be extremely expensive and really only fit in a niche roll. 

 

What's more fun is Intel's 7nm is their first EUV node. And they're going to be doing a lot of layers with EUV. Which means the whole "7nm in 2022!" mantra may not happen. Even with two full years to get there. It will be some large, generational leaps, but only because their design teams haven't had a node to launch anything new on in ages.

They have been working on 7nm for awhile now alongside 10nm so much so that there were a couple times rumors went around that Intel would nump straight to 7nm because 10nm wasn't working out. I honestly don't doubt that they will hit 7nm in 2022.

on the 1k series there wasnt much reason to buy X series, you could OC on the stock cooler to a similar level, even without OC the difference was nothing. worst offender was 1700 to 1800x.

the 2700x had some compelling reasons, such as the boost clock that you couldnt get by OC. other than that, the 6 core had no compelling reason to get the X variant.

That looks like it was total system power from the wall. Ball park 250W delta from idle to load, but that would include power supply (in)efficiency. Say 80% PSU, that's down to 200W for CPU + mobo VRM inefficiency + anything else using power under load like ram. CPU socket somewhere below that. Given 105W TDP Ryzens are 142W PPT at stock doesn't seem too insane.

They have been working on 7nm for awhile now alongside 10nm so much so that there were a couple times rumors went around that Intel would nump straight to 7nm because 10nm wasn't working out. I honestly don't doubt that they will hit 7nm in 2022. 

They really should have had 7nm for 2020. As it stands, that's already going to be 2 years late, though they didn't start the cycle until a bit later, so it's technically not behind schedule from development reasons. That we know of. Yet.

enable PBO, and there really isnt much difference. and even without PBO there isnt a whole lot to see either. 

i guess im wrong to call it a scam, but from a value perspective, its bad and its marketing as somethign "extra" when its really not. 

on the 1k series there wasnt much reason to buy X series, you could OC on the stock cooler to a similar level, even without OC the difference was nothing. worst offender was 1700 to 1800x. 

the 2700x had some compelling reasons, such as the boost clock that you couldnt get by OC. other than that, the 6 core had no compelling reason to get the X variant. 

Aha. I knew the 2700X was solid (I had one), wasn't sure on the others. I've had an R5 1600 that did 4Ghz easy (and then refused to do 4.1 with over 1.4v, lmao), the aforementioned 2700X (was dissapointed because it wouldn't do above the stock boost so I moved back to X58 because it was more fun), a 2200G, and got to tinker with an R5 2600 for a friend the other day, got it to a rough 4GHz stable with 3200Mhz CL16 RAM (could've pushed it more with more time but I just wanted to give him an improvement in CS:GO with better single core). I'd say the non-X ones are more fun due to overclocking better than the boost can do it, but the 2700X offered better actual performance. Haven't used any Zen 2 chips so IDK how they do. 

What they really need to to is just clarify what the X actually means, and only put it on applicable models. On Intel the K just means the chip is overclockable, and on HEDT an X means that's the top dog highest core count lad, otherwise it's basically just a K. But the current Zen 2 chips have the 3600, 3600X that's basically the 3600 with a higher TDP so it runs hotter? And then the Ryzen 7s are all X chips, as are the 9s.

unless the density is twice that of 7nm, i dont think so. 

 

7nm TSMC can get quite toasty around 4,5 ghz on Zen 2 and at that point thermal density becomes an issue. 

 

so maybe? the clockspeed regression is probably a factor of them increasing IPC in the design and smaller nodes simply not giving good clockspeeds. 7nm isnt very impressive, and 7nm+ i dont think gave much improvement in clockspeed either. 

 

true

 

their 14nm is so redefined that maybe they need to have 10nm++ to get the clocks at same area and its too late for that game

its supposed to have a higher boost frequency, but as we have allready seen. the boost is short and needs a lot of voltage. and the thermal density just runs the temp higher. 

 

you get some increase in multicore boost, but PBO more or less removes that and games come more and more multithreaded. the real advantage they have is the higher base clock, imo.
