Intel’s 10nm Cannonlake CPUs Will Be Coming In 2017

By   /   Jan 10, 2017

Looks like Moore’s law is still alive and that transistor count increases every year in integrated circuits, shrinking them year by year, not only this, but Intel CEO at CES 2017 said that Intel’s 10nm Cannonlake CPUs will be coming in 2017.

Originally, the due date of eighth generation of Intel processors was in 2016. But, Intel faced problem in shrinking down the size further from 14nm to 10nm transistors and delayed the chips.

Now at CES 2017, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich demoed a 2-in-1 device running at eighth generation or 10nm Cannonlake CPU that displayed a promo video. Furthermore, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich affirmed that Intel’s 10nm Cannonlake CPUs will be coming in 2017 and said:

For those who are wondering if Moore’s Law is alive, if 10 nanometers going to be here, the answer is absolutely yes.

Now what does 10nm transistor sizes CPUs will offer for next generation of devices? Well, for starters, it will generate much less heat. Second, it reduces power consumption significantly and gives an additional boost in performance. Third, since the chipset size will be much smaller than existing 14nm of Kaby Lake, more of small sized devices may make way into market.

Recently, Intel announced PCs size of a credit card but only slightly thicker. Compute Card is the name of upcoming technology and that it will replace or extend the life of many appliances. As, the device will slot into a machine, much like a credit card into a machine for operation. Plus, Intel announced its 10 nm chipset size, one can wonder if Compute Card uses the same hardware technology. Read the link above to know more on Intel’s upcoming project: Compute Card.

We look forward for Intel to change the generation of devices by shrinking further the chipset. Expectedly, the eighth generation of Intel’s 10nm Cannonlake CPUs will be coming in 2017, but probably in last months.
