Rumor: Intel will launch three 10nm-generation processors




Intel will reportedly release a third generation 10nm chip, after Cannon Lake and Icelake. This might come in the second half of 2019. The rumor comes at a time that TSMC has announced the beginning of 2018 to produce the first 7 nm chips.

The third generation would be called Tiger Lake. If the rumor of The Motley Fool’s right, there is therefore a second tock in Intel’s tick-tock cadence at 10nm. It would not be the first time that Intel released the release schedule; This year brings the Kaby Lake Intel family of processors, which like the ‘tick’ Broadwell and the ‘tock’ Skylake on 14nm produced. The ‘tock’ means that Intel does not switch to a new production node, but implements architectural adjustments.

Last week, Intel said at the announcement of the quarterly earnings mean that the company is striving to restore the two-year cycle in honor, but if the rumor is true, the group does not succeed in this. If Cannon Lake in the second half of 2017 appears and Icelake follow a year later, Tiger Lake would be in the second half of 2019 would appear and lead the first 7 nm chips in 2020, though this is speculation.

The rumor comes at a time when TSMC positive remarks about his roadmap. According to Digitimes expects Intel’s rival in the first half of 2018 to produce the first 7nm chips, though it seems likely that these are samples. Two years later, according to the expectation of the company’s first 5nm chips are produced. The company probably mention that the EUV technology is used in the production 5nm.
