After the recent launch of a new 14-nm processor generation with an updated bracket and the same processing cores that accompany us from 2015 - it seems Intel Turns to focus on moving to newer and more interesting technologies
With the current launch of Comet Lake processors, we get something we've never seen from Intel - four generations of products based on the same core architecture (and that chipset lithography, as an add-on), which first appeared somewhere in 2015 in the generationSkylake And continued to serve us well beyond what was planned. We already know what the performance of the modern models is - and believe that it is finally time for material change and refresh, even in the desktop market.
In the mobile market, we already had the launch of Ice Lake processors last year, based on a 10-nm manufacturing process and processing cores in a new Sunny Cove architecture, but unfortunately we did not get a parallel launch in the stationary world, probably because the current output of Intel This production process does not allow for the high dimensions and processing frequencies required for this. What we will get from the company, either at the end of the current year or early next year reportedly, is a family of processors Core The 11th generation under the Rocket Lake code name, for that new LGA1200 resident, with official support atPCI-Express 4.0, still in a very old 14 nm manufacturing process - this time with processing cores in Willow Cove architecture, designed to improve Sunny Cove Spoken.
It is surprising to see plans to launch Rocket Lake processors with up to eight cores at the very top, rather than the ten cores that first brought us (outside the HEDT range) Comet Lake models - does that mean Intel hopes to improve the efficiency of its eight-core upgraded products That will provide similar ten-core capabilities from the Age ofSkylake, Or will we eventually see ten-core models in the Rocket Lake family? Promise to keep updating as we discover more details.
After Rocket Lake, in late 2021 or 2020, we should see one of the most significant changes in supply Intel Over the daysCore Early - with the Alder Lake generation, which will probably form the basis of theCore Section 12, based on an up-to-date 10-nm production process at last, expected support for both PCI-Express 4.0 and DDR5 memory - and a combination of large and advanced Golden Cove cores (further enhancement of Sunny Cove and Willow Cove) and cores Gracemont's new roll-out of the architectureAtom The economical.
Smart integration between efficient and economical cores with powerful cores has proven itself great in the mobile world, and has become the foremost default in the field - and Intel seems to have the tools and technologies (a three-dimensional chip stack with Foveros) to realize the perceptions of the market as well The stationary processors, despite the fact that the power casing and consumption data often constitute only a secondary consideration for maximum performance.
The Alder Lake processors may offer up to 16 cores, including eight core Golden Cove and eight Gracemont cores, and will be based on a new LGA1700 resident - and it will be particularly interesting to see how they will work with Zen 3 and even Zen 4 processors (in the process) Production of only 5 nm) of AMD, Which will probably come with up to 16 processing cores and maybe even beyond.
