Intel Slowdowns Full Transition to 32nm In Order to Boost Sales
In a bid to meet unprecedented demand towards its products, Intel Corp. had to quickly ramp up production using both 32nm and 45nm process technologies. While this allows the company to meet the demand towards the new products, this will slow down completion of transition to 32nm process technology.
We are building more 32nm [chips] in the second half than we had planned six months ago; we are also building more 45nm in the second half than we planned six months ago. The result is that we will have more 45nm [products] longer than we first thought, even though 32nm [share] is growing faster and bigger than we first thought. The basic the answer here is that the market is bigger than we had first done planning on for the year, said Paul Otellini, chief executive officer of Intel, during the most recent quarterly conference call with financial community.The ramp up of 32nm process technology in general is faster than Intel planned. However, the demand forces the company to build more chips produced using 45nm fabrication process, for example, quad-core Intel Core i7 microprocessors based on Bloomfield and Lynnfield cores in LGA1366 and LGA1156 form-factors.
