14 nm benchmark?

I'd love to see the comparison of specs for Intel vs. Samsung 14 nm.

UMC 14 nm is IBM's?

Isn't UMC's 14 nm developed with IBM? In that case, with IBM fading out of the picture, what does that bode for UMC?

@Gondalf: Intel always ships its PC processors first and multi-socket server CPUs last when moving to a new process. Any reason to think t is different this time?

Can anyone also enlighten us about the advantages/disadvantages of FDSOI at 14nm?

Better?? with a 20nm backend??? i think not. The leakage will stay at the 20nm level (at least so said TSMC a year ago)

Big question :). 

But what about high power transistors/processes ??? Amd will be able to utilize this new hybrid process?? Apparently no, it is for SOCs and medium/low voltage devices only (reading GloFo claims). I have the suspect that a lot of recent Intel struggles are due to the difficulty to implement a high power FinFet transistor on 14nm. In fact Intel will ship low voltage SKUs and SOCs first, delaying the shipment of PC and server cpus. Looking Intel roadmap the SOC shipment is not affected at all by the recent delay.

By the way small chip on finger picture is misleading. Is it possible to change to appropriate image?

Does this match Intel process capability or is it better?

Anyone far enough down the curve yet to know what the cost/benefits of 16/14nm node are looking like?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
