Well, at least we now know how it stacks up
But the move itself to 450mm has cost fukcing huge amounts, in direct investments, takeovers, and partnerships. What would the semiconductor industry do without Intel leading innovation and forcing others too ?
AFAIK, Intel will start producing 450mm this year, prolly in late Q3.So would those chips be production ready, or more of a "production test chips" ?
We won't see 450mm on a high volume node until 2018.Don't think the average punter will get their hands on a CPU made on a 450mm wafer till 2016, it will probably be on the 10nm process.
EDIT : Actually, thinking about this a bit more, Intel will probably do a run of 14nm 450mm wafers first, as by then, 14nm will be a known quantity and thus well suited to trying out on this new wafer size. It would also make for some very cheap and plentiful Atom SoC's to target various sectors of the Smartphone market. This might mean they would come out in 2015.
