Yeah I think that's certainly evident. My knowledge of how these fabs work is limited, but if you struggle at 10nm, I don't really know how you can say "**** it" and skip to a more challenging, denser node, and expect to not have the same or more issues. This is where my concern for Intel grows.
It's also why I think Samsung sucks and will continue to. If their 8nm is crap (which it is) then why would I expect their 5nm to be any better?
