Intel shows “tick-tock” release and enables 10nm production in the second half till 2017




Intel only brings 2017 processors that are made from a 10nm- process. Next year appear Kaby Lake processors. That the third generation will be produced in 14nm, which is an end to Intel’s tick-tock strategy.

The director of Intel, Brian Krzanich, made ​​the adaptation to “tick-tock” during the presentation of the quarterly figures, it appears from the transcript of Seeking Alpha. The tick-tock cadence implied that Intel one year to a new chip architecture and switched the next year reduced the production. Every two years, Intel stepped so on a smaller-nm generation. “The last two being technology transitions that our cadence is currently 2.5 years earlier than two,” said Krzanich.

Therefore, the chip giant has decided in the second half of 2016 to launch a third-generation 14nm named Kaby Lake. This will be based on the Skylake architecture. The first Skylake processors likely come out in August. Kaby Lake will offer compared Skylake “significant performance improvements”, claims Krzanich.

The 10nm generation of chips Cannon Lake Intel expects to release in the second half of 2017. The end of the tick-tock method shows that it is increasingly difficult the Moore’s Law to follow -leidraad. This “law” wrote simplified appear for doubling the transistor density of chips every half to two years and it proved to be a driving force as soon as possible on smaller process’s switch. Any switch brings advantages in terms of economy along with it.

Intel quarterly revenue came in at $ 13.2 billion, converted currently around 12 billion euros. That is 5 percent lower than the same period last year. The profit amounted to $ 2.7 billion, 3 percent lower than last year. Of that gain was due to 70 percent of revenue from the data center, memory and internet-of-things-branches. Thereby offsetting disappointing earnings from chips for desktops and laptops. Intel has been struggling more with the effects of reduced PC sales worldwide. Krzanich expected in the second half of 2015 improved by the advent of Skylake and Windows 10.
