Next year, Intel will launch its new 10nm processor family with the Cannonlake CPUs, replacing the current 14nm processors. The CPU family to replace Cannonlake in 2018 will be Ice Lake, which is also based on the 10nm node, which will be followed by Tiger Lake in 2019.
Intel has been having issues in getting their 10nm-based Cannonlake CPUs to the market, but we had these issues with the 14nm-based Broadwell processors - where they were delayed by months in both the desktop, and mobile markets. Intel will launch the Cannonlake processors in 2017, a year after the upcoming Kaby Lake CPUs debut. After that, we'll see Intel introduce its 10nm-based Ice Lake processors in 2018, followed by the Tiger Lake processors in 2019 - both based on 10nm.
But now Intel is facing competition in TSMC, which has just announced their 7nm node for 2017, which will be followed through with 5nm in 2020.
