10nm becomes irrelevant also when 7nm is close. Moving a fab over to a new node takes a long time. If Intel predicts 7nm in high volume production by the end of 2021, starting a move to 10nm today seems like waste of time and money. Not completely so as they have said move from 14nm to 10nm is bigger than from 10nm to 7nm but still. at the same time, 14nm is cheap, plentiful and production-ready today with no extra investment to the fab itself.But surely 10nm only becomes irrelevant if you are ready to use someone else's fab or close your doors, if neither of these options are viable then you can only work with what you have.
Sucks for us consumers but for Intel it does make sense to brave some of the storm out on 14nm.
