During the Intel Foundry Direct Connect event, the company announced its plans to launch production/development of the Intel 10A node (equivalent to 1nm) by the end of 2027. In addition, production based on the 14A node (1.4 nm) is planned for 2026. The company is also working on creating fully autonomous factories based on AI in the future.

The slide shows the share of silicon wafers that the company plans to use for chip manufacturing based on various production processes.

In its previous announcements, Intel did not specify the start date for the use of its future 14A node, but has now announced that production will begin in 2026. More importantly, Intel will start production/development of its unannounced 10A node by the end of 2027. The suffix A in Intel's node naming means angstrom (a unit of length equal to 10-10 meters or one ten-billionth of a meter), and 10 angstroms convert to 1nm, making it the company's first 1nm-class node.

Intel did not provide any details about the 10A node but stated that it should deliver a two-digit power/performance improvement. The improvement compared to the 14A node is expected to be at the level of 14-15%.

Intel plans to aggressively expand its production capacities for Foveros, EMIB, SIP, and HBI packaging. This will ensure a continuous supply of advanced processors with complex packaging, including HBM.

Additionally, the company intends to expand its operations. In addition to existing production capacities, Intel plans to invest $100 billion in expansion and new production sites over the next 5 years. Geographically distributed production capacities will allow Intel to have global redundancy of its operations and offer its customers the opportunity to use a supply chain fully located in America.

It is also noted that the company heavily relies on automation of its production capacities. Currently, Intel plans to use artificial intelligence in all segments of its production flows, from capacity planning and forecasting to increasing output and actual production operations. The timelines for such changes are not specified, but they are expected to impact every aspect of the company's operations in the future. This includes the deployment of "cobots" (collaborative robots that can work alongside humans) and extensive robotic automation in the production process.
