Intel announces the end of the official marketing process for its seventh-core processor generation - including the innovative Kaby Lake-G models that offer advanced in-built cores AMD And will not have continuity
Sometimes the celebration has to end - which is what is happening now for the Skylake and Kaby Lake processors of Intel, Originally launched in the years 2016 and 2017, and will officially reach the EOL status of the End of Life during 2020.
Among the processors that other stores and commercial entities will be able to order by the end of April 2020 and receive by October 2020 (the final date for deliveries of these models from Intel's factories) can be found atcore i7-6700 square and thecore i7-7700K was one of the company's most popular models in previous years. Only a few models will remain in production beyond October 2020 in their Tray configuration (without a dedicated package) for the device market and production And, in addition, three Celeron G3930 dual-core models will continue to be manufactured and marketed in the near future, even though the company has already launched the Celeron G49XX models that replace them.
With this announcement, Intel In fact, it remains only with the family Processors One active in the mainstream desktop market - Coffee Lake, on the pair of incarnations under the brandingcore The eighth and ninth, which are expected to accompany us until the Comet Lake family launches into the stationary market, still with a production process of 14 nm But with growth to ten core processing cores in the top models instead of eight to date, and growth in processing capabilities in the other model sub-levels according to the increased scope.
The most disappointing news, as far as we are concerned, within the Intel EOL message is that the unique Kaby Lake-G series will have no direct continuity - and will remain rare and only evidence of internal collaboration between the manufacturer and its competitor AMD. This series was originally launched at the beginning of 2018 with five products, which contained an internal graphical core from the Vega family of AMD Internal connection to general processing cores of Intel, All packaged chip Single combined Memories HBM2 With unparalleled graphical processing power in the Inner Core category.
The idea was exhilarating and the capabilities met expectations, but the high price and high power casing with regard to mobile configuration processors are the ones that seem to have scaled, with minimal popularity that included miniature desktop NUC products Intel Itself and a small number of high-end laptops - Kaby Lake-G models will continue to receive support and updates Intel In the coming years, however, no similar G-models will be seen, and the chip maker will invest its efforts in developing its self-capabilities in the field with its 11 and 12 generation of graphics processing architecture that ensure big leaps in capabilities and of course the anticipated launch of dedicated branded processing cards Intel Xe next year.
