Intel is well behind schedule with its 10nm process tech; it is years behind schedule in fact. As a result, the company has pushed its 14nm process to tech to the limit with a number of design refreshes. However, the company says that it is still on track to deliver volume production of its 10nm consumer processors in late 2019 and for the sever market in 2020 (we should note that that limited 10nm chips have shipped out, albeit with their integrated GPUs disabled). With that being said, while Intel's full-scale 10nm rollout has been delayed, Murthy Renduchintala,... Read more...
Intel has been put through the ringer recently due to the numerous delays facing its 10nm process node, and with good reason given how long the company has milked the 14nm node. Just yesterday, the company was forced to issue a public statement (via Twitter) to refute a report claiming that the company had abandoned its 10nm process technology altogether. Despite all the drama, there are 10nm Intel Core processors already making the rounds, including the Cannon Lake based Core i3-8121U, which has its integrated GPU disabled. Now, we're getting a quick and dirty look at an alleged... Read more...
Earlier today, a report was making the rounds claiming that Intel had abruptly decided to kill its 10nm chip production. The possibility that Intel would mothball its 10nm line definitely caught a lot of attention because the company has admitted to delays in bring processors based on the manufacturing tech to market, and volume production wasn't expected to occur until the second half of 2019. The original report that alleged that Intel 10nm tech is dead stemmed from Semi Accurate, which wrote: Now we are hearing from trusted moles that the process is indeed dead and that is a good...

Intel this week announced a major shakeup in its manufacturing division amid continuing delays in rolling out its 10nm processors. Intel has been building chips on its 14nm process since 2014 and the company has indicated that its 10nm CPUs won’t be ready for volume production until 2019. In order to get its house in order, Intel is splitting up its manufacturing unit; the company announced its plans to employees on Monday. The Intel Manufacturing and Technology group will be chopped into three components: technology development, manufacturing and operations, and supply chain.... Read more...
Earlier this month, retailer SimplyNUC let slip that Intel would be releasing a fresh round of Crimson Canyon NUCs based around 10nm Cannon Lake architecture. Although we've seen 10nm Cannon Lake processors make their way in limited quantities to a low-volume Lenovo notebook for the Chinese market, this is the first time we've seen a 10nm launch for Intel's small form factor (SFF) products. Intel's Crimson Canyon NUC mini PCs are available in two configurations: NUC8i3CYSM and NUC8i3CYSN. The former comes with 8GB of LPDDR4-2666 memory, while the latter is equipped with just 4GB. Both... Read more...
Late April was the last time that Intel gave us a real status update on how things are coming along with 10nm chip production. At the time, the company said that products based on its 10nm process node wouldn't arrive until 2019. That "miss" came after we were previously told that 10nm Cannon Lake parts would be shipping late 2017, which then slipped to late 2018. "Intel is currently shipping low-volume 10 nm product and now expects 10 nm volume production to shift to 2019," said Intel in its Q1 2018 earnings report. Intel reported its Q2 2018 earnings yesterday, and provided another update... Read more...
It seems as though we have been waiting an eternity for Cannon Lake to arrive in volume, and barring any further delays, it will be here in mass quantities next year. In the meantime, Intel has already released a 10-nanometer processor in mobile form, that being the Core i3-8121U, giving us a glimpse of Cannon Lake. It also gives us an opportunity to dissect the architecture a tad and see what Intel's 10nm process brings to the table. In case you missed it, the Core i3-8121U made its first appearance last month inside Lenovo's IdeaPad 330 ultraportable laptop. The CPU is also listed on Intel's... Read more...
Earlier this week, a curious laptop from Lenovo leaked onto the internet. The IdeaPad 330 showed up in Asia sporting an Intel Cannon Lake processor; more specifically, the Core i3-8121U. Intel recently stated that Cannon Lake processors wouldn’t be shipping in volume until 2019, but it appears that the Core i3-8121U is an exception to that rule. Some sleuthing by Hexus revealed that the Core i3-8121U is now represented in Intel’s ARK database, which is a first for a Cannon Lake-based processor. As previously reported, the Core i3-8121U is built on Intel’s... Read more...
Lenovo recently unveiled several new budget IdeaPad laptops with prices starting at just $249, but apparently one of the new models is serving as a launchpad of sorts for Intel's 10-nanometer Cannon Lake processors. The 10nm part was spotted in a listing in China for Lenovo's IdeaPad 330-15, a 15.6-inch laptop with a 1366x768 resolution priced at 3,299 yuan, which works out to around $520 in US currency. It feels like we have been waiting ages for Cannon Lake to arrive, though that is exaggerating things a bit. Still, it has not been easy for Intel to streamline its 10nm production process, as...

It seems as though we've been waiting for Intel's Cannon Lake 10nm processors forever. After all, the company has been on the 14nm process node since 2014, but to Intel's credit, it has made refinements over the years culminating with the release of Coffee Lake. But an actual public release of Cannon Lake has so far been elusive. We're now learning that Intel won't ship its first Cannon Lake processors until 2019. The announcement was made by Intel CEO Brian Krzanich yesterday afternoon during the company's earnings call. We were supposed to see the first volume shipments of Cannon Lake processors...

There's a new X399 motherboard chipset coming this year from a major chip manufacturer. No, we're not talking about a revamped version of AMD's X399 chipset used in its Ryzen Threadripper processors, but an X399 chipset from Intel that will be used in its own 2018 family of HEDT processors.  A document on Intel's website [PDF] was recently discovered that draws attention to the company's Rapid Storage Technology. However, found within the document are references to two unannounced chipsets: the Z390 (which we have discussed at length here at HotHardware)... Read more...
If you regularly follow tech -- which we're quite sure you do -- then you likely know all about the alarming Spectre and Meltdown chip vulnerabilities that were first revealed just a few weeks ago. The good news is that software and hardware partners from around the globe have worked to issue OS patches and BIOS/microcode updates to help mitigate the exploits. Now, Intel says that it will include actual hardware fixes in silicon to address Meltdown and Spectre, in future processor releases. Intel CEO Brian Krzanich made the comments during the company's Q4 2017 earnings call yesterday,... Read more...
It seems like we have been waiting for Intel to release its Cannon Lake lineup for a hundred years now (slight exaggeration). That day is fast approaching, however, with Intel having already shown off a Cannon Lake wafer to the public several months ago. Now what looks to be the first Cannon Lake chip has made an unofficial debut on SiSoftware's SANDRA database, along with several unreleased Coffee Lake processors. Assuming the leak is legitimate (as always, take these things with several grains of salt), it suggests that Intel has begun shipping out engineering samples of Cannon Lake to OEMs and...

Reading through technical documents is rarely fun, but every so often there are interesting nuggets to uncover. Such is the case with a document (PDF) on Intel's website in regards to its upcoming 10-nanometer Cannon Lake processors. According to the "Intel Architecture Instruction Set Extensions and Future Features Programming Reference," both Cannon Lake and Ice Lake will feature support Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 512 instructions (along with a host of other instructions). AVX-512 first appeared in Intel's Xeon Phi processors.and coprocessors, and later on Intel's Xeon Scalable processors.... Read more...
