Intel has just made its upcoming Cannon Lake CPU architecture official, with its 9th-gen Core processor on track and made on the 10nm process.




Intel also took the time to announce that its second micro-architecture built on 10nm is taped out, with details on Ice Lake to follow. Intel is reacting in a scared fashion as I said months and months ago now, throwing out its 18C/36T processor at Computex 2017 without any details, a gimped X299 chipset compared to the ThreadRipper ready X399 chipset from AMD which has 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes compared to just 44 PCIe 3.0 lanes on X299.


The new Cannon Lake CPUs will be a die shrink of the Coffee Lake chips, so don't expect huge things from it, apart from lowered TDP and possibly higher clocks. Ice Lake will be the bigger one, something like the upgrade from Broadwell to Skylake, and is expected in 2H 2018.
