Intel 10nm CPU to ship in June; 7nm product to launch in 2021 @ Digitimes

I find it ironic that the recently Intel roadmap leak showed Ice Lake as 10nm but no mention of a 7nm processor.  Of course the leaked roadmap didn't have much for 2021 on it so it is likely that Ice Lake will get a die shrink.

At a recent company investors meeting, Intel announced plans to start shipping its volume 10nm client processor in June and shared first details on its 7nm process technology.

Intel disclosed its first volume 10nm processor, a mobile PC platform codenamed "Ice Lake," will begin shipping in June. The Ice Lake platform will take full advantage of 10nm along with architecture innovations. It is expected to deliver approximately three times faster wireless speeds, two times faster video transcode speeds, two times faster graphics performance, and 2.5-3 times faster artificial intelligence (AI) performance over previous generation products, the company claimed.

Intel continued that Ice Lake-based devices from its OEM partners will be on shelves for the 2019 holiday season. Intel also plans to launch multiple 10nm products across the portfolio through 2019 and 2020, including additional CPUs for client and server, Agilex-series FPGAs, Nervana-series NNP-I (AI inference processor), a general-purpose GPU and the "Snow Ridge" 5G-ready network system-on-chip (SOC).

Be sure to check out the new episode of the Hardware Asylum Podcast where we talk about the Intel roadmap leak.  The show is more "fun" than informative so be sure to loosen up your trigger wires.
