Rumor: Intel Has Pushed 10nm Cannon Lake Back to 2018

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Intel has already delayed Cannon Lake several times, as it tweaks the process and pulls the rollout back on track, but the company’s efforts may not have been enough. There are multiple reports Intel has pushed Cannon Lake back into 2018, though evidence is scant on the ground. The basis for the rumor appears to be an image that sites like PatentlyApple are claiming prove a delay. Here’s the relevant image; PatentlyApple describes this as: ...

Intel, Waymo Are Working on Self-Driving Cars

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Self-driving cars occupy a bit of an odd position in technology at the moment. While the topic has been fairly popular, and spawned additional interest in concepts like machine learning and AI, the actual nuts and bolts of how various companies are implementing self-driving technology are hush-hush. Marketing presentations and high-level diagrams are common; in-depth explanations that spell out exactly how the various platforms work are not. That’s partly because even the firms working on ...

Intel Coffee Lake Benchmarks Leak, Launch Rumored for October 5

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Intel’s upcoming Coffee Lake refresh is expected to boost core counts in response to AMD’s Ryzen launches from earlier this year. Now we’ve got some benchmark results on the upcoming Core i7-8700K, at least if the leaked data is accurate. (As always, take such information as rumor, pre-release data, etc, etc). There are two sets of results, both rounded up by VideoCardz. In Cinebench R15, the Core i7-8700K (six cores, 12 threads, 3.7GHz base clock, ...

Report: AMD Stealing Significant Market Share, Revenue from Intel

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. One ongoing question, ever since AMD launched its Ryzen 7 family, is how well the CPUs are selling. We’ve seen some arguments that claim AMD’s improved financials are unstable or temporary, based on the idea that GPUs were more profitable than CPUs (extremely unlikely), or that AMD’s lower profit margins meant Ryzen wasn’t selling well. We’ve been dubious of such claims, given how much AMD’s Computing and Graphics revenue rose in Q2. New evidence from ...

Intel Can Now Mesh Different Process Nodes on the Same Chip

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. One constant of CPU manufacturing for decades has been that different components on the same die must share a common process node. It’s certainly possible to build a package that combines, say, a 14nm CPU with a large pool of on-chip cache built at 22nm, or to have a CPU built at one process node that has a GPU built at a different process node adjacent to it, but on the same physical piece of ...

Leaked Intel Slide Reveals Coffee Lake CPU Lineup

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. A leaked slide from China has confirmed much of the speculation we’ve heard about Intel’s upcoming Coffee Lake. Much of what we’ve previously heard is accurate, at least according to this slide, with Coffee Lake bringing quad-core i3’s, six-core i5’s, and a Core i7 with six cores and 12 threads. The graph below is, as best I can tell, understood in the following way: Slide courtesy of Chiphell The horizontal lines between the two columns ...

Intel Launches Atom C3000 Servers With Up to 16 Cores, 256GB RAM

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. There was a time, back in 2011 or 2012, when it was common to see people predicting Intel’s chokehold on the server market would be broken by the advent of (relatively) low-cost, high-density CPUs delivered by ARM vendors. Companies like AMD, Applied Micro, and Calxeda all pinned their hopes on ARM, with AMD’s then-CEO Rory Read predicting that we’d see ARM take 15 percent of the market by 2015. In response, Intel respun its Atom ...

Intel CEO is the latest to leave Trump's manufacturing council

The CEOs that quit Trump’s business councils Intel CEO Brian Krzanich has become the third top business leader to step down from President Trump’s manufacturing council on Monday. He follows the chiefs of Merck(MRK) and Under Armour(UA), who announcedtheir decisions earlier Monday amid the fallout over Trump’s response to violence over the weekend at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. “We should honor — not attack — those who have stood up for equality and other cherished American values. I hope this will change, and I remain willing to ...

Intel Will Reveal 8th Generation CPUs This Month; Sooner Than Expected

Intel’s 7th-generation CPUs (Kaby Lake) released in January this year, about 17 months after the preceding generation (Skylake)–a usual transition in the CPU market. However, Intel is ready to reveal its 8th-generation on August 21. And while we don’t know of the release window quite yet, this announcement comes much sooner than what we’d expect. The Kaby Lake processor family was announced this time last year and released five months later. If this next generation (Coffee Lake) follows suit, we could have new Intel chips in early 2018. This also ...
