Intel is still working on 10nm desktop CPUs, is making great progress

A new rumour surfaced earlier this week, suggesting that Intel would abandon the 10nm CPUs and move straight away to 7nm. However, it appears that this rumour was false. Intel has officially responded to this, claiming that it is currently making great progress on 10nm desktop CPUs.

Now as you may have noticed, we did not publish this rumour as it contradicted everything we’ve been hearing lately from Intel. And it appears we were right.

As Intel’s official statement reads:

“We continue to make great progress on 10nm, and our current roadmap of 10nm products includes desktop.”

And that is that, straight from the blue team itself. There will be 10nm desktop CPUs, although we don’t know when these CPUs will hit the market.

Intel has not released any 10nm desktop CPU yet. The first one, based on the Sunny Cove architecture, will be likely come out in 2020/2021. Do note that its 10th generation Core series, which may come out next month, are on the 14nm fabrication.
