NewsHubJust a day after Qualcomm unveiled a ‘world first’ 10-nanometre (nm) server microprocessor , Intel has moved to reassure customers and users that it’s delayed 10nm ‘Cannon Lake’ architecture will be coming out in PCs before the end of this year.
Intel had originally planned to introduce the first family of 10nm processors sometime in late 2016. However, technical challenges encountered in shrinking transistors to ever smaller scales led to the launch being delayed until 2017.
At CES in Las Vegas, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich confirmed that the successor to Kaby Lake, which itself was delayed and has only just emerged, was still on track for a release this year and showed off the first 2-in-1 PC based on the 10nm architecture.
No further information about Cannon Lake was revealed, however, but better battery life, lower power consumption, less heat dissipation, and better performance ought to be benefits from microprocessors built to 10nm process manufacturing.
