Intel has been very quiet about its CPU product roadmap with its 10 nm based CPUs being delayed. While Intel isn’t talking about it but, Intel CPU roadmap 2018-2020 has been revealed which reveals that Intel will stick with 14 nm process node and 10 nm has been pushed further ahead.
A slide for Intel CPU roadmap has emerged online which reveals that Intel will stick with the 14 nm process node for its upcoming processors while the productions for 10 nm based Intel CPUs have been pushed ahead.
As you can see in the Intel CPU roadmap, Intel will be bringing the Z370 chipset motherboard in Q3 2018 possibly with the launch of 8-core Coffee Lake consumer-level CPUs.
Furthermore, the Skylake-SP and Cascade Lake-SP series Intel CPUs will also be available in the Q3 2018 while the Copper Lake-SP will be available in the Q3 2019.
As for the 10 nm CPUs, they have been pushed to 2020 as Icelake-SP CPUs will be rolling out in Q3 2020 according to Intel CPU roadmap.
Speaking of Intel, reportedly the company is shutting down its Extreme Edition CPU brand.
This is according to former principal Engineer and Performance Architect at Intel, Francois Piednoel, who revealed that Intel is killing its high-end CPU brand which is a big mistake on Intel’s part.
The Extreme Edition CPU brand has been an important part of Intel’s dominance in the market and with Intel killing it we won’t be seeing any Extreme Edition CPUs in the market in the future if the report is true.
However, Intel won’t be shutting it down without introducing a new brand for its high-end CPUs and might be working to release its enthusiasts level CPUs under a new brand.
Speaking of Intel, a couple of Intel Whiskey Lake-U CPU have also leaked online. The leaked Intel Whiskey Lake-U CPUs are Core i5-8265U and Core i7-8565U.
