Intel’s CEO commitments and plans

Intel’s CEO Patrick Gelsinger has made 4 commitments: One, deliver on 5 nodes in 4 years, achieving process performance parity in 2024 and unquestioned leadership by 2025 with Intel 18A. Two, execute on an aggressive Sapphire Rapids ramp, introduce Emerald Rapids in 2H23 and Granite Rapids and Sierra Forest in 2024. Three, ramp Meteor Lake in 2H23 and PRQ Lunar Lake in 2024, and four, expand our IFS customer base to include large design wins on Intel 16, Intel 3 and 18A in 2023.(CN Beta, WCCFTech, Seeking Alpha, Hardware Times, Twitter)

Intel Foundry Services (IFS) contract chipmaking division landed an order from a major “cloud, edge, and datacenter solutions provider” for producing chips on Intel 3 production node. The company has always tailored its Intel 20A and Intel 18A (2nm and 1.8nm-class, respectively) for its foundry customers. In contrast, its current and upcoming Intel 7 (10nm Enhanced SuperFin), Intel 4 (7nm with EUV), and Intel 3 (7nm+ with EUV) nodes were designed primarily with Intel in mind. So winning a major customer with Intel 3 — which is set to be production ready in 2024 — is clearly an achievement for the processor giant. (Laoyaoba, Tom’s Hardware)
