So was there anything about the 11/10nm manufacturing process shown at IDF14 as suggested by the comments?
It's just with previous process nodes there are test chips being announced years before retail chips are available and I have not heard of anything in the 11/10nm node even existing have I missed it's announcement?
the 16/15/14nm nodes have consumer releases imminent in DRAM and Intel CPU's when there test chips were announced as far back as 2007.
Okay out of curiosity I've looked up first chip made on a manufacturing node range compared to Intel releasing a consumer chip in the same node range.

There is a prototype memory unit by Toshiba at 15nm being mentioned as tested in December 2007 as wellhttp://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/new ... ory-tested
Intel 14nm retail CPU - ?
So we are looking at, at least 4 years from first test chip announced to a retail chip on a node with no 11/10nm test chips being announced that I can find.
Has anyone seen an announcement of these yet?
