Globalfoundries chose the risky strategy jumping jumping over 10nm and going straight to 7nm. Now, some semiconductor vendors are following suit. As a result, 7nm is may be the next “super node.”
Could Intel be planning a double whammy at 10nm? One analyst argues yes, and bets Intel will debut new semiconductor materials at that node -- as well as new techniques for manufacturing transistors.

Samsung has announced its plans for rolling out next-generation foundry technologies and future process nodes this week -- including a plan to deploy cutting-edge EUV lithography as early as the 7nm node.
GlobalFoundries is planning an aggressive rollout schedule for next-generation technologies like 7nm manufacturing and FD-SOI.
