Extending the lead
By the end of the year, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) will begin production of its next-generation 14-nanometer process technology, putting it well ahead of the Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg. Co. Ltd. (ADR) (NYSE:TSM)‘s timetable. With this technological advantage, Intel will be able to produce the lowest cost, most powerful, and most energy-efficient transistors on the planet. On paper, this certainly sounds promising, but in reality, it’s unclear if technology alone will be able to drive meaningful results for shareholders, especially considering average selling prices are expected to decline. Unfortunately, investors are left to patiently wait and see if a technological advantage will translate into a brighter future.
