Ice Lake taped out as well
Intel has officially announced that its 9th generation Core Cannon Lake CPUs, based on 10nm manufacturing process, are on track as well as that its Ice Lake architecture has taped out.
Trouble with intel’s 10nm continues
KGI Securities and world’s leading Apple leaking analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, shared that Cannon Lake 10nm is likely to debut in 2H 2017 in new, 32GB capable Macbook Pros. The transition to LPDDR4 could result in 15-25 percent less power consumption over the current LPDDR3.
After Skylake comes the Lake 14nm
Intel might have admitted that it will take a bit longer to get to 10nm, and it turns out that after the second generation 14nm Skylake, the next Intel CPU will be another 14nm design, not a 10nm part as many expected.
