“The stronger the US blockade, the faster China will create its own technologies.” Shanghai begins mass production of 14nm chips

Authorities in Shanghai, the center of China’s semiconductor industry, said this week that the city is mass-producing state-of-the-art chips using a localized 14-nanometer process technology.

This achievement is a milestone for Shanghai in building a state-of-the-art technology hub and a milestone for China’s chip manufacturing sector to help fight the US amid intensifying Sino-US technology competition.

This is the first official recognition of the ability of Chinese companies to mass-produce 14nm chips, as independent technology analyst Xiang Ligang said in an interview with Global Times: “The stronger the US blockade, the faster China will research and develop its own technologies.”

The Joe Biden administration plans to expand restrictions on US supplies to China of semiconductors used for artificial intelligence tools and chip fabrication, Reuters reported on Monday.

The US Department of Commerce sent letters to companies, including KLA Corp, Lam Research Corp and Applied Materials Inc, banning the export of chip manufacturing equipment to Chinese factories producing advanced semiconductors below 14nm process technology unless the sellers obtain a Department of Commerce license.

Chen Jia, an independent strategy researcher, said that the mass production of 14nm chips in Shanghai will greatly help the development of sectors such as new energy vehicles, smart cities, smart manufacturing and the Internet of Things, which will help China consolidate its advantage in quality the world’s leading manufacturing factory.

According to Chen, after the development of 14nm technology, work is moving forward: “Development in the field of 7nm chips in China is also going faster than expected.”

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive? Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

Will the new Intel processors really become much more

Intel Raptor Lake processors will be unveiled in a few hours, but now we have the opportunity to look at prices that may be in line with the recommended ones.

Will the new Intel processors really become much more expensive?  Prices for new items lit up a few hours before the announcement

The fact is that the new items were lit up in the NewEgg store, and marked as recently released. Given the size and status of this network, it is possible that the prices listed there now correspond to those that Intel itself will reveal in a few hours.

And if so, then the same price increase that the company warned about earlier will take place.

  • Core i9-13900K – $660 ($70 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i9-13900KF – $630 ($65 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700K – $450 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i7-13700KF – $430 ($45 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600K – $330 ($40 more than its predecessor)
  • Core i5-13600KF – $310 ($45 more than its predecessor)

Thus, we will get a rise in price by 10-15%. If we talk about competition with AMD, then the Ryzen 5 7600X at a price of $300 is 10% cheaper than the Core i5-13600K, the Ryzen 7 7700X at a price of $400 is more than 10% cheaper than the Core i7-13700K, and the Core i9-13900K at a price of $630 is significantly more expensive than the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X, but significantly cheaper than the top-end Ryzen 9 7950X. We wrote about the performance of new AMD products yesterday.
