• Intel announces Ice Lake its 9th generation 10nm processors two years early

[quote]Intel may be preparing to announce its upcoming eighth-generation processors on August 21st, but the company is already looking to the future with an uncharacteristically early announcement of what seems to be its ninth-generation Ice Lake chips. Intel has announced it as the "successor to the 8th generation Intel Core processor family." That would seem to imply it’s some sort of ninth-generation architecture to follow the eighth-generation models. Intel also says that it will use the 10nm+ process, the second generation of the tech at that scale.[/quote] Source: [url]https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/8/16/16156374/intel-ice-lake-coffee-kaby-lake-core-processor-chips-next-generation-8th-9th-cpu[/url] Rip Coffee Lake sales.
:dig:
I'm willing to bet they'll copy AMD's strat of binning. At these processes, shits easier to be DOA and 10nm is still in its infancy in the commercial world.
Intel really seems to be shitting the bed and not know what the fuck they're doing this year with AMD making such a strong and unexpected comeback :v:
Intel in panic mode. AMD taking back some of the server and consumer markets. Intel ups the release date of new tech.
Looks to me that they simply cannot change much with the current generation anymore and simply move on to the next one, maybe a bit more pressured by AMDs release. I mean what do people expect Intel to do now, Ryzen came out late, Coffee Lake at this point won't change anymore, it is done and set for release soon. They can't just scrap all the production and do a magic trick for better processors. Coffee Lake is probably going to be an average release considering how strong Ryzen is, so really the best thing they can do is move on.
I'm guessing it'll require a new motherboard like usual.
Hahahaha, good.
Whoops, time to save up my money then?
[QUOTE=Zeos;52581515]Whoops, time to save up my money then?[/QUOTE] I mean, if you don't mind waiting till mid 2019 to upgrade.
I wonder what AMD will do after the second am4 generation is up then. Maybe they'll drop to 10nm too a year or so later? 2021 am5 release maybe?

[QUOTE=S31-Syntax;52581631]Considering AMD said they expect to ride am4 for a decade I doubt it[/QUOTE] We'll see. People always say how good AMD has been for socket support but that's only because they didn't release shit. Their FM sockets aren't too much different than Intel's cycle
[QUOTE=Levelog;52581921]We'll see. People always say how good AMD has been for socket support but that's only because they didn't release shit.

I just hope tiger lake doesn't get cut.
The names will get really boring, just *thing* Lake
[QUOTE=Fox Powers;52582084]The names will get really boring, just *thing* Lake[/QUOTE] yeah like Sky Lake they are pretty much giving their potential Coffee Lake userbase to AMD
[QUOTE=Fox Powers;52582084]The names will get really boring, just *thing* Lake[/QUOTE] Lava Lake u kno its true
[QUOTE=thelurker1234;52582489]Lava Lake u kno its true[/QUOTE] Fitting name for Skylake-X.
[QUOTE=glitchvid;52581806]Zen2 is going to be 7nm GoFlo/IBM, and that'll be on AM4 iirc.[/QUOTE] We still have zen+ before then, expect zen2 2019, AM4 support until 2020, but support doesn't guarantee zen2 will be am4
These "-Lake" names are getting old. Threadripper is a better name.

The 14nm+ is just the stepping for Ryzen Pro and Epyc. [t]http://cdn.wccftech.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/AMD-Zen_3.png[/t]
[QUOTE=Smoot;52583410]These "-Lake" names are getting old. Threadripper is a better name.[/QUOTE] An overall better product as well, intel's biggest response to AMD's new chips eating their market was pulling the "but it's a glue" card
[QUOTE=Fox Powers;52582084]The names will get really boring, just *thing* Lake[/QUOTE] these are names i expect from uninspired middle management
[QUOTE=Anteep;52583992]these are names i expect from uninspired middle management[/QUOTE] I mean they're just boring corporate standard names. No sense in cool names that gamers will like because it's such an inconsequential part of their income.
