    There were rumors that it's going to be made by Samsung.

      Perhaps calling it Intel Venice would be more appropriate given their woes.

        What about Pompeii?

          Since Venice literally is under water nowdays.

          Calling it Venice would certainly be jinxing it.
          I've got a sinking feeling already.

              Doesn't make much sense because Samsung's nodes tend to be low power, which means less performance.
              Unless this one is different...

                I used to be excited about the rumors of a discrete Intel GPU. Now I'm not even slightly interested. Sad times.

                  Nvidia already announced their plans to use Samsung's 7 nm.

                    It probably will be different since Samsung is going deeper into the partnership with IBM in order to boost their manufacturing know-how.

                      Samsung has nothing to do with it. Intel confirmed more than once that their first 7nm is a HPC Xe variant and is scheduled for H2 2021. Ponte Vecchio is their lead 7nm product, it's based on Intels 7nm.
