Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger pledges a return to greatness through chip design

On Tuesday, newly minted Intel chief executive Pat Gelsinger outlined his vision for returning Intel to greatness: a manufacturing strategy called “IDM 2.0” that will impact Intel’s development of 7nm chips, including the upcoming Meteor Lake.At its heart, Gelsinger’s IDM 2.0 is about fabs: building two new fabs in Arizona to help alleviate worldwide semiconductor supply concerns; establishing a brand-new Intel Foundry Services business to sell chips from those fabs to other customers; and, conversely, creating a culture where Intel will turn to other chip foundries to manufacture products that it can’t manufacture itself.Gelsinger made clear that Intel’s goal is to continue manufacturing the majority of its products internally, but that it will turn to other foundry partners where necessary. Gelsinger said Intel’s working hard to streamline and simplify its chip recipe to accelerate its roadmap. In terms of its consumer roadmap, Intel expects to solidify the design of the compute tile of its first 7nm CPU, code-named Meteor Lake, in the second quarter of this year, before it officially launches in 2023.To read this article in full, please click here
