Intel announces its next-generation Ice Lake chips unexpectedly early

  • Intel Gemini Lake

Intel might reserve Cannon Lake for smaller mobile processors to help maximise yields during the more hard first iterations. There were some unexpected hurdles in the manufacturing process. "These processors utilize Intel's industry-leading 10 nm+ process technology", Intel adds.

If we were going to indulge in a spot of wild speculation - and why not? - it did pop into our heads that maybe Ice Lake could be a reference to some seriously cool running for these chips, so perhaps they'll boast beefy power-efficiency and thermal improvements.

Called the Ice Lake, the 9th generation processors will be based on the 10nm+ architecture and will be the successor to the yet-to-be launched 8th generation 14nm++ Coffee Lake processors as well as 10nm Cannon Lake processors. Further, Ice Lake is being projected as the successor of the soon-to-be-announced 14-nanometer Coffee Lake chips, which raises a question about the upcoming processor lineup and how Cannon Lake fits in. The desktop chips will apparently use 14nm variants like Kaby Lake and the soon-to-be-launched Coffee Lake.

As you may be aware, Intel has the big reveal of its Coffee Lake CPUs - the eighth generation of the Core family, following on from Kaby Lake - planned for next Monday.

We probably don't have long to wait to have this straightened out, as The Register understands new Chipzilla CPUs intended for desktops and laptops will debut by the end of this quarter. It may deliver better yields for larger chips and be a suitable architecture for a broader range of Intel processors. There's certainly not a lot to go on by reading this. That would make Intel Gemini Lake a great option for entry level notebooks and 2-in-1 devices, keeping in mind the Intel Gemini Lake only need 6W ~ 12W.

So it's much clearer: we now have three official names for what's coming next - Coffee Lake, Cannon Lake, and Ice Lake.

In a vague teaser, which Intel has posted just days before it will unveil its 8th-gen processors, if claimed that the next-gen parts will offer "amazing performance and responsiveness".
