Recently, the microprocessor giant Intel denied the delay in release of their 10nm chips code-named Cannonlake and confirmed that the 10nm based chips will be introduced by the second half of 2017.
Intel Confirms Launch of 10nm Processors in Second Half of 2017
The word came from Intel right after the post on their job listing at Intel’s website last month, which stated that the company will be producing 10nm chip “approximately two years” . Following the post, most of us believed that the company might actually delay the launch of 10nm chips.
Anyhow, Intel re-confirmed it lately and the post has been removed from the website as it was incorrect and the new 10nm based chips would be launching in the second half of next year.
The Cannonlake titled series was originally scheduled for launch in late 2016, but due to some un-clarified reasons and other technological related challenges, the company decided to delay the 10nm chips until 2017.
“In the second half of 2016 we plan to introduce a third 14nm product, codenamed Kaby Lake, built on the foundations of the Skylake micro-architecture but with key performance enhancements. Then in the second half of 2017, we expect to launch our first 10nm product, codenamed Cannonlake,” – Brian Krzanich, Chief Executive Officer, Intel.
