Intel Set to Unveil 18A Process Node Chips Mid-Next Year, Targeting External Clients

Intel announces plans to launch its 18A process node chips by mid-next year, expanding its manufacturing capabilities to external clients.

As per reports on April 26, we learned that during the first quarter earnings conference call held today, Intel announced its plan to release its own processor products based on the Intel 18A process in mid-next year. Intel stated that the official (1.0) version of the Intel 18A PDK kit will be released this quarter.

Processors like Clearwater Forest (Xeon 7 energy-efficient cores) and Panther Lake (expected to become Intel Core 300 series) based on this process are now entering the wafer fab stage.

The ramp-up of these products will commence in the first half of 2025, and product launches will occur next year. Intel believes that both Clearwater Forest and Panther Lake will be the best offerings in their respective categories.

Intel 18A is also Intel’s second advanced process node that it officially provides foundry services to external customers for, and has secured 6 external customers.

According to previous reports from sources, both Microsoft and Ericsson have indicated that they will adopt this process, and Faraday Technology has even made it clear that the relevant 64-core Arm SoC will be launched in the first half of next year.

Furthermore, Intel stated that the wafer foundry price of the Intel 18A node is approximately three times its cost, which will aid in enhancing profit performance.
