Intel's new 10nm CPUs might not be here until 2022

Intel's troubles on 10nm will give AMD the node leadership crown until at least 2021, maybe even 2022.

Intel just launched its new 9th-gen mobile CPUs with more power and energy efficiency than ever before, but what about the desktop? It looks like desktop 10nm CPUs are a few years out now, spelling trouble for the company and a win for competitor AMD.

Intel will reportedly have 10nm (or smaller) desktop CPUs sometime in late-2021 or 2022, around the time that Intel will be launching its next-gen Ocean Cove CPU architecture. Between now and then we can expect Comet Lake-S refreshes with 2/4/6/8-core CPUs on 14nm between now and mid-2020, while Comet Lake-U will introduce new 8- and even 10-core CPUs both on 14nm.

The next CPU architecture after the Comet Lake-S release will be Rocket Lake-S which will be on an optimized 14nm node. The next-generation Ocean Cove CPU architecture will be the first deployed on 10nm in 1H 2021, delivering 4 cores on 10nm. AMD on the other hand has 8C/16T processors on the new Zen 2 CPU architecture on 7nm in the coming months, with an announcement at Computex 2019 in a month from now.
