The international famous toothpaste maker Intel recently has a new trend. In the 10nm process is delayed until the second half of next year, Intel is in a very embarrassing period. Fortunately, 14nm did not end, the spare tire Kaby Lake processor at the end of this year will be officially listed. The release time of the new processor is very delicate, just as the same process with the Zen AMD processor listed. Although the end of last year released by the Skylake processor performance is more eye-catching, but the production capacity has dragged the Intel back, until the beginning of this year to stabilize the supply.
Currently has a spot on the spot and the price of 100 yuan of money.
In the original Tick-Tock strategy, each generation processes are planned for the two processor architecture, but the 14nm has a number of problems. So the desktop version of Broadwell only symbolic out of the i7-5775c and i5-5675c two products, and very that buy, so that Skylake can be regarded as the first 14nm of the public consumers can buy the processor.
As the technology is not very mature, the successor of the 10nm process had to be postponed until next year, Intel forced market pressure only to launch Lake Kaby processor.
Lake Kaby processor we are not unfamiliar, the end of the release of the upgraded version, the same process, still for the LGA1151 interface, the most likely to bring a surprise or a significant part of the nuclear. Intel ready to use the eDRAM 256MB cache on the new processor, than the current GT3e/4e core significantly improve 128MB. At the same time, the new memory controller will DDR4 memory frequency from 2133 to 2400MHz.
TDP, because Lake 14nm will continue to use the Kaby process, so little change in this area, the mainstream dual core, quad core TDP or 35W, 65W, K series is still 95W.
Chipset will be upgraded to 200 series, PCI-E 3 channel number compared to 100 series more than 4 out of 24, this improvement is mainly in order to cope with the new generation of XPoint 3D flash memory Optane hard disk preparation. There is no big improvement in other areas.
We are most concerned about should still lake Kaby release plan, supply chain stakeholders indicated that, for the mobile platform design of low voltage processor in mid June of small-scale production, large-scale listed to wait until November or December, supporting Z270, H270 chip group is expected to will be the first in October released.
Amd respect by the end of this year plans to release a new generation of Zen processor architecture, same use and Kaby Lake 14nm FinFET process, for the secret weapon, we eagerly look forward to for a long time. Now the bulldozer architecture has been used for 5 years, the process is still stuck in the 32nm and far behind the Intel processors. This time, AMD has finally achieved the same process with Intel - who in the end will be able to smile to the end of this year? Let us wait and see.
