Intel has been sitting pretty on two and four core CPUs for a long time now, but an Intel LinkedIn profile indicates the upcoming Cannonlake CPU, built on 10nm technology, will make the jump and support four, six, and eight cores.




Don't get too excited, though: Intel CEO Brian Krzanich indicated this past summer that consumers can expect Kaby Lake in the second half of 2016, and Cannonlake in the second half of 2017.
