Intel 3 Process Reaches High-Volume Production

Intel’s latest manufacturing technology, the Intel 3 process, has achieved a crucial milestone by reaching high-volume production at the company’s facilities in Oregon and Leixlip, Ireland.

This new process node offers substantial improvements over its predecessor, Intel 4. It delivers up to 18% better performance at the same power consumption and up to 10% greater density. The Intel 3 process is a key component of the company’s ambitious plan to launch five new process nodes in just four years.

The Intel 3 process is particularly significant as it marks the first leading-edge node that will be utilized by external foundry customers. Intel plans to maintain the Intel 3 process for an extended period, offering multiple variants to cater to diverse customer needs.

The company’s Xeon 6 server CPUs, including the Sierra Forest and Granite Rapids models, will be among the first products to leverage this new technology. Intel has already secured approximately $15 billion worth of external business for its foundry services, underscoring the potential impact of this advancement on the company’s future growth.
