Work begun on 7nm and 5nm processes

Intel’s chief executive Paul Otellini shed some light on Chipzilla’s plans and confirmed that the company already has 7nm and 5nm processes in mind.

Intel is currently planning on setting up its fabs in Oregon, Arizona and Ireland for 14 nm production. According to a slide shown in a meeting with investors, this would ensure development of the 14nm process by 2015.

Otellini reminded that Intel’s R&D is quite deep and looks decades in advance. He said that the company’s 7nm and 5nm efforts are “on time and on target”, although we’re still talking about R&D phase.
