Weeks after Intel made headlines with its latest CPU Sapphire Rapid prototype, the brand has decided to rename all of its existing nodes. Also, revealing a new road roadmap for its upcoming 2023-2024 products.
According to the news, the manufacturer has already changed the names of two of its existing nodes; 10nm Enhanced SuperFin and 7nm node.
Intel 7 is what was previously known as Intel’s 10nm Enhanced SuperFin. The manufacturer promises a 10-15% performance per watt gain over the prior. This node will be used for Sapphire Rapids and Alder Lake.
Intel 7nm node has been renamed to Intel 4. The company revealed that the node will receive a 20% performance per watt gain over intel 7. Meteor Lake was the first product to feature Intel 4 and Granite Rapids’s compute tile.
Intel will release its Intel 3 node in the second half of 2023. This node will have an increased performance/watt gain of 18% and a denser HP library. Increased EUV usage and intrinsic driving current were also promised by the brand.
At the beginning of the first half of 2024, Intel’s 20A node will bring advancements. The A stands for angstrom, a metric unit that is 0.1 nm in size. RibbonFET transistor architecture and PowerVia connection innovation will be introduced in this node.
