First Intel 14nm CPU Is Atom Z2580

According to SemiWiki, the name has been uncovered for the first central processing unit built, or which will eventually be built, on the 14nm manufacturing process technology.

With early 2014 as the ETA (estimate time of arrival), the chip (codenamed Airmont) is a sort of proof that Intel really is moving faster than Moore's Law.

For those unclear on the matter, Moore's Law states that the number of transistors possible to place (affordably) on an IC (integrated circuit) doubles every two years.

That's neither here nor there, though. What's really important here is the name, Atom Z2580, that 4G LTE will be supported and that phones, slates and even ultrabooks could use it.

All other specs are unknown, including the battery power consumption.

Production will probably start in early summer 2013, if mass availability really is set for two years from now.
