Can someone explain to a tech newbie how AMD is close to releasing 7nm already and Intel is still on 14nm? Isn't Intel supposed to be ahead in research and development? Don't they have more resources? How did this happen? I might got with AMD for my next build for this reason.

>> No.68923447

Intel was cruising with their legs on the table with their 4core cpus+eventual achitecture and sometimes nodeshrink for 10 years while AyyyyMD was BTFO. Then they release ryzen and that got alot of people to switch and Intel didnt expect that.

>> No.68923456

i watched a video yesterday that said that intels 10nm is actually going to be just so slightly denser than AMD's 7nm, if that's true then the wording is kinda misleading

intel are struggling beecause they haven't had to put any serious work in for the last 7-8 years. sandybridge dominated over bulldozer chips and intel were in a very comfortable position where they had virtually no competition, this is why there have been barely any gains between each succeeding generation of their chips.

>> No.68923468

Also intel has their own fabs so they have to research on their own while AMD uses chink fabs that everyone uses so they all share the node shrink tech i think.

>> No.68923472


Because TSMC is ahead of the curb while Intel became lazy and decadent

>> No.68923495

That's false. Intel's original 10nm isn't quite as dense as TSMC's 7nm, and if the rumors are to be believed, Intel has been forced to alter their 10nm node in ways that reduce density to get it to work at all.

>> No.68923506

Because they're all lying, the nm size is just marketing.

Intel's fabs are going downhill because most of their engineers left and TSMC gets heavy cash injections from other tech giants so their fabs will easily get ahead.

So basically Intel is shit and AMD is the best, that's all you need to know.

>> No.68923604

Intel's 10nm is denser on logic, less dense on sram, evens out probably. 10+ will be 10% denser. The only rumors I've heard that Intel's faking 10nm is from like Charlie who's half full of shit

>> No.68923633

What? Its the other way around. TSMC has better density metrics across the board compared to intel's 10nm. Total logic cell area is lower with TSMC, SRAM denser.
Intel isn't struggling because they've been lazy either.

>> No.68923661

Because Intel went with balls to the walls insane targets for their 10nm while firing their experienced process engineers and replacing them with H1Bs.

Yes, they'll have profitable operation without needing cash infusions from now on. As of late August they had over 50 customers on their 22FDX process. Its likely that the upcoming 12FDX will net them even more design wins.

Global Foundries didn't give up on high performance nodes, they just went with SOI instead of bulk FinFETs.

Current leakage isn't magic. You know how you keep current controlled in an increasingly shorter channel? You use a GAA. Retard.

Afaik other fabs are richer than intel, simply because everyone is buying from them.

Probably doesn't help that most of intel's profits goes to corrupt ceos receiving massive severance pays.

Because intel is the last cutting edge stronghold of the "fabbed" model. While AMD is fabless and has their products made by other companies like global foundaries and tsmc.

so 7nm+ means more nanometers than 7?

>> No.68924266

Intel sat on their laurels for too long. They also did not foresee gooks and Chinks eventually catching up and eventually surpassing them. Intel is always held back by its own hubris.

AMD is a fablet company who was sunk for a decade, they piggybacked off TSMC who got really big from Apple, Huawei, Qualcomm and Nvidia contracts.

Lets see if they can actually make FDSOI work this time. STM shipped some 28nm FDSOI designs, but no one else was able to make it work. NXP's chips have all been in pre-production for fucking years.

>> No.68924535

What year are you from?
FD-SOI has always worked. What you're trying to refer to is a subset of FD-SOI called ET/UTBB that utilizes body biasing to create an tunable double gate effect. Even then, Global Foundries 28FDX was a cash cow for them, the process had no issues. Samsung is offering their own competing family of advanced SOI nodes they call FDS.

Right, but how do you know his info on this is in the bullshit half?

Charlie posted info straight from intel in his paywalled articles, he didn't post any made up rumormill WCCFtech shit. He didn't say they were faking anything either. You couldn't make it any more obvious that you saw headlines and never read the articles.
Intel isn't faking anything, but they are not going to put designs into volume production that had the pitches they publicly detailed when they first presented their 10nm process to investors.
Intel's original 10nm node was behind TSMC's 7nm in density.
Intel's current 10nm node is even further behind.
TSMC's 7nm EUV will improve on density even further over their current 7nm.

>> No.68927297

It's been 6 years since STM got 28nm FDSOI running and shipped some of their products, in the mean time Sony shipped a GPS chipset ... what else has shipped exactly?

I have huge suspicious Intel is sandbagging. It's only logical a company as huge they are have many on going secret research into cutting edge future gen technologies. I predict Intel will be shitting on AMD's thunder one again after zen2 is released. Just as Intel did with phenom and bulldozer.

AMD doesn't have to share the designs, and these contracts are locked in. Intel can't just knock on TSMCs door and tell them to figure out how to copy AMD. Right now TSMC might have excess 7nm wafer production available but that doesn't mean fucking shit.

Not likely. It's useful having there as a backup incase anything happens to your graphics card. That said, you could probably buy a used gpu for $10 to serve that same backup purpose.

>> No.68930859

Broadly speaking, no. There are use cases that would involve both but if you have to ask that sort of question they are almost certainly not relevant to you.
Beyond it serving as a fallback in case your dedicated GPU died it would just be wasted money presuming you have the option of going without.

>> No.68931009

There are some applications (not games) that make use of everything you throw at them, in which case a decent iGPU could serve as a performance boost.

>> No.68931332


Now is that significantly more beneficial compared to the iGPU that pretty much comes standard on Intel mother boards? I'd imagine what ever you'd gain in latency you'd lose in thermals.

>> No.68931432

Intel massively fucked up their 10nm node

Also the 7nm TMSC node AMD is using is equivalent or only marginally better than the 10nm intel would be using.

so basically 7nm ~=~ 10nm more or less

AMD got to this size first simply because intel are moronic.

Also the reason to get AMD isnt that is has a better node its because the Zen Core design is superior to the obsolete Skylaked architecture intel is currently using

That will change when sunny cove comes out on 10nm but until then AMD has the better design and with 3000 series they will have the better design and the better node.

>> No.68931622

AMD didn't develop 7nm process, TSMC did.
