Big Q. Tch, what could have persuaded Intel to bring forward 5G chip production six months?

Re: This assumes their 10nm process is ready by then

My understanding of the10nm issues is around yields - the process introduces too many defects to reliably produce big chips.

Given that and the US$10b+ fab cost, high volume radios may give them time/revenue until Intel have a viable 7nm competitor.
