Intel was initially expected to begin introducing equipments into its initial 10-nanometer manufacturing plant in the middle of the year, i.e. summer. Then again, that same report - referring to "industry sources" - says Intel won't begin moving equipment into this plant until the second quarter of 2016.
That proposes volume generation on 10-nanometers won't start until at some point after the second quarter of 2016, and 10-nanometer item dispatches will be significantly farther. That is a really critical deferral, if genuine, ought to stress speculators.
Intel has regularly gloated that it is first to grow cutting edge manufacturing advancements, giving it an edge over the opposition. Notwithstanding, because of Intel's deferred take off of its 14-nanometer innovation, the delta between when Intel went into generation on its 14-nanometer innovation and when Samsung (NASDAQOTH: SSNLF) went into creating by itself the 14-nanometer innovation was well under a year.
At Intel's financial specialist meeting a year ago, organization officials said they would not like to discuss 10-nanometer generation timing until the 2015 speculator meeting basically for focused reasons. Given that TSMC and Samsung have now openly dedicated to going into creation on their 10-nanometer innovations in late 2016, and given the report that Intel is postponing 10-nanometer equipment move-in, we can't help suspecting that this clarification was just smoke and mirrors.
On the off chance that Intel is deferring equipment move-in, it implies the organization isn't sufficiently sure in the innovation to get ready for a volume slope. Actually, recollect how Intel said it had encountered yield troubles in inclining its 14-nanometer innovation, prompting deferrals? We will not get a formal updatation on the company's status of the 10-nanometer manufacturing technology as well as volume ramp plans uptill November this year.
