Shell, want to confuse. Intel will release the processors Core of the eighth generation in the current year, and on 14-nanometer technology
Intel, as you know, went on a three-step cycle of alternation of generations, adding to step change the architecture and step change process step optimization. 2017 and 2018, according to the September roadmap will be quite confusing if we talk about the range of the company.
We will remind, at the end of this year is expected to reach a new generation of Cannon Lake, produced at 10-nanometer technology. However, such solutions will appear only in the mobile segment in the form of CPU Cannon Lake Cannon Lake U and-Y, whereas the table in the beginning of 2018 from Intel prepared a generation of Coffee Lake-H. But it will be released somehow, according to the norms of 14 nm. Moreover, the mobile solution is also replenished processors Coffee Lake-U, but from Cannon Lake-U they are different not only in the older process technology, but also more efficient GPU. In General, formed of confusion.
But Intel apparently felt that this was not enough and yesterday told us that the eighth generation of Intel Core processors will outpace the seventh to 15%, according to the testimony of SYSmark. And all anything, but this is the eighth generation should come out for the second half of this year and made updated on 14-nanometer technology.
Intel no word is uttered about the fact that for a generation it has in mind. We already do not know how you will be marked partially overlapping solutions Cannon Lake, Coffee Lake, and it is now even less clear. Logically, talking about CPU Cannon Lake, as it should be 10-nanometer solutions, the corresponding step changes in the process. It can be assumed that the question of CPU Coffee Lake, which Intel simply release earlier than planned. Perhaps to compete with AMD Ryzen. However, it is also possible that talking about the HEDT processors, that is, Kaby Lake-X or Skylake-X, but we don’t know what names will get these solutions, because here, Intel also decided to complicate things by releasing almost simultaneously (and, perhaps, do both) two generations of HEDT processors, and even divided different segments.
