Intel 14 nm Silicon Fab Development in Progress

Intel will be capable making chips on the 14 nanometer silicon fabrication process, in 18-inch diameter wafers, "in two years," as development of the technology and machinery to make it happen is making good progress, according to company CTO Justin Rattner. He noted that Intel's aggressive tech advancement will keep Moore's Law relevant for at least the next 10 years. By the end of 2013, Intel's D1X Fab in Oregon, Fab 42 in Arizona, in the US, and Fab 24 in Ireland will begin producing batches of simple chips such as P1272 and P1273 series SoCs. After 14 nm, development for 10 nm, 7 nm, and 5 nm will follow, in order.

Maybe it's just me, but the wording makes it sound like 450 mm (18") wafers will be available in two years time with the 14 nm process. They (the wafers) are not scheduled for production use until 2018.

The lines between science and science fiction are quickly becoming blurred.... with the level of tech that's being released and the next level of tech that will be built off it... truely exciting times.

I read some where that Intel might switch from LGA to BGA. Wouldn't that hurt PC builders?

I thought because of quantum tunneling it would be impossible not to.
