They are already building the fabs for 7nm and 5nm. The problem is it won't be ready till the end of this year and next year(2022). And who knows was the capacity will be initially.
But because they are continuing to ramp down 14nm and are already struggling to keep up with 14nm demand
they had to contract it out. So they are using TSMC for 14nm CPU's AND
are going to use TSMC for 7nm for their Xe GPU's.
And it's already a tight market. Global shortages of Intel CPU's have been a plague for years now. Especially in the enterprise and laptop market. It's at least partially why AMD is making such huge gains.
