    Intel 4?!?!? is it 4nm tech?!?

    I think some kind of specification would be nice, without having to start digging deeper?

    7nm process, Intel are just lying in the hope people who haven't done their homework don't get it and think it is better than 7nm.

    Surely there's got to be some sort of come back for Intel on this, it is misleading, what does the 4 actually stand for? I suspect AMD might start renaming their processes soon.

    There's no industry standard for node size naming and if Intel were to pulled up on calling it Intel "4" without actually correlating in any way to node size then both TSMC and Samsung would be caught in that as well.

    It's just an arbitrary number and Intel decided to play the game and make their similar node sizes to competitors either have same numeric values or one lower and therefore to the dumb, the "better".

    Intel, always publishing break throughs, then amd copies and claims they did it first.
