Staying with Coffee Lake Only: The End of the Road for Kaby Lake and Skylake

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 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 , 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 at i7-6700 square and the 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 marketAnd, 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.

Separate from her past designs - a sign that she is almost ready to launch the rest of the generation's products Tenth? Hope to find out soon

With this announcement, In fact, it remains only with the family One active in the mainstream desktop market - Coffee Lake, on the pair of incarnations under the branding 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 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.

Plans for switching to 10 nm technology in the home market at the end of next year are still there - and soon after that there are already plans to jump to 7 nm in an attempt to regain the technology competitiveness that has eroded it

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 . This series was originally launched at the beginning of 2018 with five products, which contained an internal graphical core from the Vega family of Internal connection to general processing cores of , All packaged Single combined With unparalleled graphical processing power in the Inner Core category.

The most powerful mobile processors of , At least as far as graphical processing is concerned, they will fade and disappear in the coming years - and will be applied in upgraded models where all development is personalized by , Without outside assistance

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 Itself and a small number of high-end laptops - Kaby Lake-G models will continue to receive support and updates 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 next year.

  1. This is not particularly heartening news, but there are reports that Intel completely eliminates the drop in 10NM for home market processors and leaves them only for mobile and servers. This means, if it does, that until 2022 are with 14NM and in fact remain at a significant disadvantage with AMD that will only increase the gap in future generations. What remains for Intel, apparently, is to fight the price cut and the features they give.
    HT for everyone, low price, lots of cores, open multiples for granted and more treats on their way to us :)
