As covered earlier, Intel has solid plans to shift to the 10nm process nodes and for that, a NAND flash chip is undoubtedly, the best pick. Pertaining to the fact that a NAND chip can carry uncountable transistors over its face, how can one forget it while developing a CPU die?
Intel’s 10nm Chips
Intel, the leader in the processors’ industry has come up with its all-new 10 nanometer CPUs which will be based on a 64-layer 3D NAND flash memory! This marks as a new trend in the manufacturing process for data center applications.
Intel’s 10nm process will be accompanied by the FinFET Hyper Scaling technology in which the company has planned to increase transistor densities by 2.7 times. This increase is estimated by setting a normal 10nm process node as a reference point. Now you know why those hefty-priced SSDs built with these chips are the primary focus of data-centers.
