For the first half of this year, Intel spent about $6.9 billion on the development of 10-nm process and preparation for the transition to 7-nm process technology. The latter will allow her to 2021 return "on track" so-called "Moore's law" — the empirical rule to determine the frequency doubling of density of transistors per unit area of a semiconductor crystal. In the server segment, the rate of decline of defect density and level of marriage 10-nm processors are already ahead of the targets, but the mass production of server processors Ice Lake still will not be deployed until next year. The head of Intel admitted at the quarterly reporting event that the company now produces 10-nanometer products from the two plants. One of them, as you can remember from a recent interview with Robert Swan (Robert Swan) during a visit to Israel, is located in this country. The second plant is located in the U.S. state of Oregon. Even released after the sale of the modem business Intel will focus on accelerating the development of 10-nm and 7-nm process technology. This is one of the investment priorities of the company at the present time.
