Intel has revealed that they plan to launch both an 8th generation Cannon Lake and 9th generation Ice Lake processor in the near future. These two powerful Core processors will feature the Industry leading 10 nm technology.
On August 21, Intel will officially announce the specifics of the ‘Coffee Lake’. This is the codename for the 8th-gen Intel Core processor. This new family of processors is expected to provide performances that are 15 to 30 percent better than the previous generation.
Intel Core Processors with the 10 nm technology
Cannon Lake is another 8th-gen Core processor. It will be the successor to the Kaby Lake, which is the processor currently used in MacBook devices. The Cannon Lake series will be the first series to use the 10 nm technology.
Furthermore, Intel is already giving glimpses of their 9th generation Core Processor, which is codenamed ‘Ice Lake’. The 9th generation Core intel processors will utilize a new architecture, which will feature state of the art 10nm+ processing technology.
Currently, it is not completely clear as how the 10 nm+ in ‘Ice Lake’ will differ from the technology in the Cannon Lake processor. However, more information is expected to be revealed soon.
AMD, has recently been producing numerous top of the line processors that are set to rival Intel. Therefore, Intel is determined to produce a highly functional processor with the 10nm technology. The 8th generation ‘Cannon Lake’ and ‘Coffee Lake’ processors as well as the 9th generation ‘Ice Lake’ are Intel’s response to AMD’s Threadripper and Ryzen series.
