Intel bends the truth about its nodes

A senior semiconductor analyst has claimed that chip giant Intel is being economical with the truth about the size of its semiconductors.

Malcolm Penn, principal analyst at Future Horizons, claimed that the company was overegging the cake on claims that it had 14 nanometre technology.

Rather than 14nm, he said, the size of its latest chips were between 16nm to 17nm.  Intel was unavailable for comment.
