They are just renaming their 20nm process as 14nm. The challenge still remains to get yield with FinFETS. When they do get yield they can say they are competitive. Without yield, it may as well be a mee too PhD thesis.

Time will tell if this is a bold leap forward or a foolish jump off a cliff.

EUV is dying. Triple patterning seems economically dead. 14nm will be very challenging without litho breakthrough. Bravo Foundry guys.

Reminds me of bold claim from TSMC about 450mm and ASML about EUV. Easy to make the bold claim, hard to actually do like that. I am a skeptic, but interested to watch this one.

this is to keep AMD from bolting to rival TSMC, so the CEO can keep his job awhile longer.

I think you have to give GF credit for boldness. As the comments above allude to, they had their share of yield issues at 32-nm. The GF executives I spoke with said they wanted to wait until the process design kit was available to make the announcement. To G. Dan Hutcheson of VLSI Research, the fact that the process design kit is available is the key to the announcement.

Hope it won't be marketing chant again. Go Globalfoundries.

Note my careful use of comparatives in the first sentence :)

You're a little more optimistic than me. I think they're overconfident given that 14nm is the first node they'll use FinFETs at, along with the fact they haven't begun any kind of volume with 20nm (even 28nm is fresh out the door). But we'll see. If Globalfoundries pulls this off they'll be in a strong position.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
