IDF 2010: Intel's 22nm CPUs coming in 2H 2011
Last year Intel showed off a 22nm SRAM wafer and today Intel CEO Paul Otellini informed the crowd at IDF 2010 that 22nm CPUs are in fabs as we speak.

He didn’t go into many details but he did say that Intel expects to ship 22nm processors in the second half of 2011. It appears that Intel has sped up the fabrication transition process, as Sandy Bridge, the second-generation of Core-branded CPUs, is supposed to ship in Q1 2011.
This simply proves that Intel was somewhat late with Sandy Bridge microarchitecture and it will get back on track with 22nm processors.
