Samsung announces fourth-gen 14nm node, plans 10nm improvements, and shows off 7nm EUV wafer

Samsung Fab Line

Samsung unveiled a new round of process node improvements at 10nm and 14nm this week — and claims to be pushing ahead with 7nm EUV, despite being the only foundry currently promising to use the next-generation lithography system at the 7nm node.

Is Samsung’s plan to ramp up 10nm production by the end of 2016 a paper war?

Samsung S2 foundry
Samsung has declared it’ll push on to 10nm with deliberate speed before 14nm chips have even begun to ship. Are we seeing the impact of Apple’s product cycles on the foundry business?

Intel reveals Core M Broadwell performance and TDP: At 14nm, Intel finally goes fanless

Broadwell die shot (Core M, Broadwell-Y, Broadwell-U)
At IFA 2014 in Berlin, Intel has finally taken the wraps off its first three 14nm Broadwell-based Core M processors, filling in most of the remaining gaps. We now know the base and turbo frequencies for Broadwell-Y, the TDPs of the first Core M chips (yes, Intel has moved away from SDP), and the other changes and tweaks that will allow for fanless Broadwell-powered tablets and two-in-one laptops that are just 8mm thick. Oh, we also have some cool photos that show you just how small the Core M chips are, too.
