Responding to comments from an analyst, Intel Corp. today (Aug. 26, 2003) re-iterated that its 90-nm process technology is on track and "healthy."
One analyst recently speculated that Intel may be struggling with 90-nm and has experienced some "bumps in the road" with the process. The problems could push out the shipments of its next-generation, 90-nm mobile and desktop processors, code-named Dothan and Prescott, respectively, to 2004.
However, during a conference call last week, Andy Bryant, Intel's CFO, said the company's 90-nm process is on track and the upcoming 90-nm chips would be delivered by year's end ( see Aug. 22 story ).
Today, a spokesman for Intel re-iterated its position at 90-nm. "The process is healthy," the spokesman said. The company is currently sampling Dothan and Prescott, with revenue shipments slated for the fourth quarter of this year, according to the spokesman.
