it is a good analysis in my opinion! Great job! http://www.yachtbooker.ru/

Wake me up 4 years after a 28nm chip ships from GF; that is when a normal cadence would ship 14nm. I have not seen any 28nm ship, must less 20nm. I think Oil Daddy will be bailing em out for a while yet.

no one really cares what you cal it as long as it produces improved power and performance, although perhaps "hybrid" 20/14nm and ""hybrid"" 20/16nm etc might be a fair generic name to use everywhere now but would using that generic name effect all the web sites adverting income ,probably so it wont happen. talking about "The first multiproject wafer runs for customers" hwho are these likely to be BTW, obviously the usual FPGA guy's, but how about XCore and Parallella guy's would they also happen to have some space on these first run's too. do you happen to have a list of these lesser known companies somewhere that will use these run's ?

GloFo has Oil Sheikhs to write big checks - at least till 2015. They need not be tied down by Physics or reality till then.

@peter.clarke -- interesting piece. Just to be clear, in fully-depleted technologies -- and this is true for SOI & bulk, FD-SOI & FinFET, there are NO floating body effects. Also re: self-heating, IBM says this is way overblown -- it's an issue for both bulk & SOI. See Ed Nowak's (IBM) piece this week in ASN on Fin-on-Oxide (FinFETs on SOI) -- busts all those myths http://www.advancedsubstratenews.com/2012/11/ibm-why-fin-on-oxide-foxsoi-is-well-positioned-to-deliver-optimal-finfet-value/ . In the meantime, looking forward to ST's results on 28nm FD-SOI at IEDM next week. These guys are really happy campers!

We will see. No happy ending until the parts are in the field. In my opinion the end customer rules, not the design or lab or prototype folks. I hope the foundry guys have the prototype parts in their phones or cars so they get the field message personally. Motorola used to put engine controller chips in VP cars, if I remember right. But that was the "IDM" model, like Intel.

@Kresearch The 14XM PDK became available in September 2012.

Up to a few months ago I used to work at Global. mike 's statements make me sick. No truth. I don't know how he can even say such stuff

Actually Intel 22 nm fin has 30 nm hp which requires double patterning a generation early.

The litho pitches are published, showing lithographic equivalence between foundry 28 nm and Intel 22 nm. Both are 4x nm hp, the lowest possible for 193i single exposure.
