In this thread news and discussion on Intels 10nm node will take place.
First up is Cannon lake which has seen its first part quitely launched in the form of the i3 8121U which is a 15W 2C/4T CPU clocked at 2.2GHz base(3.1 turbo) without any integrated graphics
Cannon lake is Intel first architecture on 10nm and is supposed to have the next generation graphics so it’s curious to see it launch without any iGPU.
Intel recently announced that 10nm mass production is delayed to 2019 and at the same time revealed that we will see another product launch on 14nm this year codenamed whiskey lake.
It is possible that cannon lake will be limited to very few products due to the simple fact that the 14nm+/++ process has better preformance.
Gahhhh, now we’re back to 2 core mobile “core” CPUs? I hoped that was finally behind us.
Not sure how I feel about removing the iGPU. On one hand it takes up a ton of die space, I don’t care about it on desktop, and adding Vega GPUs on the same substrate offers really exciting performance. On the other hand, those Vega GPUs are extremely expensive with HBM2 and everything, so where does that leave the low-end?
That’s strange considering AMD’s CPU offerings, like an 8C/8T is better than 6C/12T but it isn’t much better unless they also add IPC gains to it among other things. I know Intel is going to start trying now and this should make things very interesting.
