Intel has been stuck on various versions of its 14nm process for a while. They first started using it in 2014 with the 5th generation Core architecture Broadwell. Now the company is finally making its 10nm Coffee Lake-based NUCs available at major retailers, despite being announced several months ago. Keep in mind, these chips were initially released in 2017, and we’re almost at the end of 2018.
Still, it’s a vote of confidence that Intel seems to have turned the corner on 10nm production. Still, based on the company’s roadmap, we shouldn’t expect a glut of 10nm parts across desktop and server chips in 2019.
