36 nm is the value shown in the Intel presentation, so it is likely correct.

Not only the M1 pitch is larger for Intel 4, but also the M2 pitch is a little larger.


It is likely that most of the size reduction in the Intel 4 metallization is due to the M0 pitch that is reduced from 40 nm to 30 nm, the same as the fin pitch.

Depending on the gate layout, it is possible that the pitch of the next 4 layers, which have a 50 nm pitch for one direction and a 45 nm pitch for the orthogonal direction, do not affect much the cell size within certain limits, so a smaller pitch for them might have not been worthwhile.
