    Intel "kaby Lake"

    Intel’s ‘Kaby Lake’ processors will be released in late 2016 – report

    Intel Corp.’s “Kaby Lake” central processing units will be released exactly a year after the company’s “Skylake” chips due this August and September. The introduction of chips in late third quarter means that the company will further postpone the roll-out of microprocessors made using 10nm fabrication process.
    As reported, Intel’s “Kaby Lake” processors will replace the company’s “Cannon Lake” central processing units next year and will succeed its “Skylake” products. The chips will be build using 14nm manufacturing technology and will likely resemble “Skylake” both in terms of design and in terms of micro-architecture. It is unknown whether the new CPUs will support any new instructions, such as AVX-512 (AVX 3.2) or any other significant improvements.
    Earlier it was believed that the “Kaby Lake” was a temporary solution in order to refresh Intel’s product lineup before all-new 10nm “Cannonlake” chips hit the market, which is something that happened to “Broadwell”. It now appears that the “Kaby Lake” is a product family that will be Intel’s primary product lineup for a long time, according to DigiTimes. The report claims that Intel will start to roll-out the consumer versions of “Kaby Lake” chips in September, 2016, and will conclude the roll-out with high-end enterprise-class “Kaby Lake” processors in early 2017. Such launch schedule indicates that the world’s No. 1 maker of microprocessors will not release its 10nm chips until sometimes in 2017.

    Based on what is currently known about the new microprocessors, “Kaby Lake” chips feature two or four cores, a new generation integrated graphics engine, a dual-channel memory controller and up to 256MB of on-package cache to speed-up graphics workloads. Intel’s “Kaby Lake” processors for desktops will retain LGA1151 form-factor and will be drop-in compatible with “Skylake” infrastructure and motherboards powered by Intel’s 100-series chipsets.
    Different versions of “Kaby Lake” processors – “Kaby Lake-S”, “Kaby Lake-H”, “Kaby Lake-U” and “Kaby Lake-Y” – will address various segments of the market, including mobile and desktop clients. The CPUs will have thermal design power ranging from 4.5W to 91W.
    Intel did not comment on the news-story.

    Para não estar a saturar o topico da Inteçl Core All, decidi criar este topico para se começar a falar dos avanços e noticias dos sucessores dos Sky Lake.

    Sabe-se já que os Sky Lake vão ter uma vida de um ano no mercado, sendo depois substituidos por estes Kaby Lake a boa noticia é que as motherboards Z17X devem suportar estes processadores.

    Estes Kaby Lake devem vir mais ou menos na mesma altura dos Zen da AMD, vamos a ver como vão ficar as coisas a nível de competitividade entre as ofertas da Intel e AMD nessa altura.

    Intel’s 14nm Kaby Lake S-Series Processors with 64MB eDRAM Delayed to September 2016 – Notebook Variants Arriving Early Next Year

    Intel has reportedly delayed the 10nm ramp and is going to introduce an intermediary “Kaby Lake” refresh platform on the 14nm process. The original timeline for the arrival of said processors was somewhere during early 2016 but according to a report by DigiTimes it has now been pushed later to September 2016. The mobile variants (like always) will arrive much earlier and hit the markets around the original mark.
    Intel pushes back Kaby Lake to September 2016

    Kaby Lake is basically Skylake Refresh platform in which the current SKL architecture will be revised on the 14nm Node and slight speed bumps can be expected in the frequency of most processors. Kaby Lake or KBL has now been pushed to September 2016 for the mainstream variants and early 2017 for the enterprise versions. The notebook lineup will however be available by as early as January 2016. Skylake is expected to arrive in the coming month of August while the notebook side will make its entry a few more months down the road. The socket for KBL will be retained at LGA 1151 and the chipset will be retained at 100 Series.
    The official reason for the delay is poor yields. Simply put the process isn’t mature enough for ramping to high volume production anytime soon. Intel has been following its tick tock cadence for quite some years now and has managed to stick to Moore’s Law by the skin of its teeth. The problem is, even according to their own projections 14nm was supposed to be a walk in the park, and that took much longer than expected. So when 10nm, an admittedly complicated node to handle, gets delayed, that is something that everyone was expecting to happen.





    The desktop side of things is broken into two primary variants – the H-Series and the S-Series. The H-series will be BGA packaged while as the S-series will be based on the LGA1151 socket. Now the unlocked multiplier processors that enthusiasts are usually interested in will fall into the S Series category but will not contain any amount of eDRAM. The locked multiplier variants of S-Series SKUs will contain upto 64 MB of eDRAM all the way upto a gigantic 256 MBs of eDRAM for the H-Series variants. These processors, as mentioned will arrive sometime around September 2016. Since Intel appears to be taking a page out of AMD’s book and shifting roadmaps like anything, the timeframe of late second half off 2016 is a good date for any enthusiast to keep in mind. I should remind again however, that the benefits of upgrading to Kaby Lake will be marginal at best.

    Tal e qual como as Z68 suportavam os Ivy e as Z87 os Hashwell. As Z170, faz sentido suportarem os Kaby. Acho engraçado é haver adiamentos ainda antes da plataforma actual sair........já há data para os Skylake?

    Intel Planning to Support VESA Adaptive-Sync Monitors with Future Processors – Kaby Lake and AMD FreeSync Compatibility On the Table

    The battle between the Sync standards has been heating up as of late, with Nvidia championing its proprietary G-Sync standard and AMD collaborating with VESA on its Adaptive Sync tech. Both technologies are primarily designed to control the monitor refresh rate in a dynamic manner, using the input signal. According to a report published by Tech Report recently, Intel is looking forward to supporting VESA A-Sync as well, although any such support will come after Skylake.

    Intel iGPUs and the VESA adaptive sync standard is a definite possibility

    It’s worth pointing out that FreeSync is based on VESA ASync but the two are not 100% the same. While FreeSync does consist of some added homegrown technologies, the primary ingredient, is, VESA ASync. If Intel were to include support for this standard in their iGPUs then they would have access to all AMD FreeSync monitors. Before we go any further here is an extract from the relevant article:
    Blythe indicated that Intel is positively inclined toward standards-based solutions like Adaptive-Sync, and he said Intel does indeed plan to support this optional extension to the DisplayPort spec. However, Blythe wasn’t yet willing to commit to a timetable for Intel enabling Adaptive-Sync support in its products. – Tech Report



    The new VESA standard for desktops (1.3) was recently revealed and the embedded side of things (laptops, notebooks etc) has received an update as well. Some of the main features of DP 1.3 are also part of eDP 1.4a (such as the 8.1 Gbps per lane and the new HBR3 link ) not to mention DSC v1.1. AMD’s FreeSync technology was officially launched back in March but one of the major caveats was that it could only support a single GPU. Red had promised support for crossfire by April, but since that didn’t happen, they posted an update on the situation. I am not sure whether the problem has been resolved or not, but last we heard it was pending some more QA testing.
    Users who use Intel’s integrated GPUs are usually on the low end spectrum of graphics technology – as such, issues that result from low frames per second are very much expected. A variable refresh technology would make the experience infinitely better and could even possibly allow users to crank up the settings a bit. According to the report however, Intel’s Skylake units do not contain the necessary hardware to back ASync right now but future processors may do so. Since both GSync mobility and FreeSync mobility appear to use the VESA standard over eDP – it would be possible for future Intel mobility processors to support the mobile version as well – but that is something that still has a long way to go considering the actual pioneering tech isn’t mainstream yet.

    Intel’s 7th Generation Kaby Lake and 200-Series Chipset Platform Detailed – Compatible With LGA 1151 Socket, Enthusiast 95W Options Included

    Intel is not only updating things on the HEDT side in 2016 but also bringing forth their latest Kaby Lake desktop processor platform for the mainstream market. Intel’s 7th generation core processors, codenamed Kaby Lake, will be based on the existing 14nm process node with further refinements to the design. Replacing the Skylake generation of processors, Kaby Lake isn’t expected to bring incremental increase to processor performance but will remain compatible with existing platforms while featuring support for next generation 200-series platform.

    Intel’s 7th Generation Kaby Lake Platform – 200-Series Chipset, LGA 1151 Compatibility Featuring Intel Optane Support

    While we have previously detailed the full Kaby Lake processor lineup which includes the H, S, U, Y series chips, this article will solely cover the desktop chips which will be launching later in 2016, as reported by Benchlife. It has been revealed that Kaby Lake processors will retain support on current generation motherboards with the LGA 1151 socket. The more surprising bit is that Intel is yet again offering users a new chipset in the form of the 200-series chipset that will launch along side the Kaby Lake processors. Just like the transition from Z87 to Z97, the new 200-series chipset will mostly remain the same but will include increased I/O performance that is very important for the platform to be ready for Intel’s next generation Optane storage products that use Intel’s 3D XPoint memory architecture. So the basic features of the 200-series chipset aside from supporting Kaby Lake-S processors will include up to 24 PCI-e 3.0 lanes (up from 20 on 100-Series Chipset), 6 SATA 3.0 and 10 USB 3.0 ports.

    Intel Kaby Lake Platform SKUs:






    Another crucial feature of the new lineup is that not only will the Kaby Lake processors be compatible with the current 100-series motherboards but Skylake processors, available today, will also be compatible with the 200-series platform. This cross-generation support will be quite useful, not only for new users but also existing user base that may see the need to update to faster processors in the Kaby Lake-S lineup. Intel’s disruptive Optane SSDs and DIMMs will be a major feature set for the 200-series chipset as the faster storage solutions will not only result in responsive PCs but also better system utilization that is otherwise bottlenecked by conventional HDDs and even some older SSDs.

    Intel Kaby Lake processors in general would be getting increased core performance (expect the usual 5-10% improvement) unless Intel plans to do something very different with Kaby Lake which seems highly unlikely. The processors will retain the basic features such for enthusiasts such as enhanced full range BCLK overclocking and 95W “Unlocked” options to choose from. While Intel has increased the core count on their enthusiast chip platform, things will remain the same on their mainstream platform with both dual and quad core (35W and 65W options) available to consumers along with the enthusiast quad core options. Other key features on the media and display side include 5K (30Hz) on one display and 5K (60Hz) dual display capabilities, HEVC 10-bit hardware decode, VP9 10-bit (hardware), UDH/4K display resolutions and support for Intel’s Thunderbolt gen3 support.
    As for the specific SKUs, we will see Kaby Lake-S (4+2) and Kaby Lake-S (2+2) SKUs. These chips will feature the GT2 graphics chip and feature integrated HDCP 2.2 support. There’s also a new Skylake 4+4e family planned for launch in 2016 which will be compatible with only KBL PCH-H (200 platform) which is surprising considering that Kaby Lake itself is compatible on both platforms while Skylake processors will require the newer platform for proper support. It kind of sounds like a repeat of the Broadwell-C series which was the only desktop chip launched in the Broadwell family that had GT4e iGPUs and vast eDRAM cache of 128 MB. For Kaby Lake, this eDRAM cache is increased from 128 MB to 256 MB and also offers several enhancements to the core GPU design structure to lift performance levels across the board. The Kaby Lake lineup is placed on a similar path like AMD’s Zen which is expected to hit the markets in Q4 2016 and will pack vastly improvement IPC and performance over the company’s older Bulldozer core and its derivatives.

    Intel Pushes Device IDs of Kaby Lake GPUs

    Quick post about something that came to light over at Phoronix. Someone noticed that Intel published a handful of PCI device IDs for graphics processors to Mesa and libdrm. It will take a few months for graphics drivers to catch up, although this suggests that Kaby Lake will be releasing relatively soon.

    It also gives us hints about what Kaby Lake will be. Of the published batch, there will be six tiers of performance: GT1 has five IDs, GT1.5 has three IDs, GT2 has six IDs, GT2F has one ID, GT3 has three IDs, and GT4 has four IDs. Adding them up, we see that Intel plans 22 GPU devices. The Phoronix post lists what those device IDs are, but that is probably not interesting for our readers. Whether some of those devices overlap in performance or numbering is unclear, but it would make sense given how few SKUs Intel usually provides. I have zero experience in GPU driver development.

    Intel’s 14nm Kaby Lake and AMD Zen “Summit Ridge” Processors Lined Up For Competition in Q4 2016

    Intel and AMD are expected to face a heated battle in the desktop processor market as they focus to introduce their latest lineups in Q4 2016. In a report by Digitimes, it is stated that the Kaby Lake will be pushed slightly behind its original release window and would focus on a launch closer to the end of 2016 to introduce their next generation processors which aligns them close to AMD’s Zen based Summit Ridge CPUs which are expected to launch at the end of this year.

    Intel Kaby Lake and AMD Zen “Summit Ridge” Processors Go Head To Head In Q4 2016 – 200-Series and AM4 Platforms To Offer Consumers New Upgrade Paths

    Both Intel and AMD are known for their processors and more specifically, their desktop processors. Both chip makers have seen heated battles with their previous generation processors and both have their fair share of wins. However, Intel seems to have been in the dominant position for some time due to lackluster launches by AMD, mainly their Bulldozer processors. This along with Intel’s focus on higher efficiency to serve mobility markets has led the chipzilla to snatch away the entire CPU market share out of AMD’s hands. The CPU side on the desktop front has seen little attention from AMD since their FX (4000/6000/8000/9000) series processors which utilize the same or slightly revised version of the Bulldozer architecture but that is expected to change with Zen.
    Intel might be in the dominant position but their processor roadmap has faced several delays and performance improvements on their products is becoming less spectacular every passing generation. The last two product families from Intel in the desktop market brought an average of 10% IPC increase over the older 22nm Haswell processors (+/- 5%). While Intel’s processors haven’t offered a great increase in IPC (although 10% has become the constant average increase per generation), Intel is showing strong activity in other sectors that are little relevant to desktop consumers but support bew features and improvements for consumers across a wide range of platforms. Intel’s processors these days are some of the most efficient products available to date with faster per core performance (comlared to other x86 CPUs), faster iGPUs, better I/O support and a range of new features that are embedded inside the chip design. AMD wants their approach to be the same as Intel with Zen based chips that will be found on both desktop and mobility PCs in 2017.
    The report that originates from Taiwan based sources, Digitimes suggests that Intel and AMD are once again expected to face heated battle in the PC desktop market.
    Intel’s Kaby Lake-series processors, which are scheduled to launch in the third quarter, but will not begin volume production until the end of 2016, while AMD is set to release its Zen architecture-based processors at the end of the fourth quarter. The two CPU products families are expected to enter fierce competition by the end of the year, according to sources from the upstream supply chain. via Digitimes
    Intel’s 7th Generation Core Family – Kaby Lake Processors For LGA 1151 Socket on Z270 / H270 Platforms



    Intel plans to launch their 7th generation core family codenamed Kaby Lake later this year. The Kaby Lake chips will be available in various configurations for desktop and mobility markets (as early as Q3 2016). The chips we are going to talk about are desktop parts which will retain support on current generation motherboards with the LGA 1151 socket. The more surprising bit is that Intel is yet again offering users a new chipset in the form of the 200-series that will launch at the same time as Kaby Lake.
    Just like the transition from Z87 to Z97, the new 200-series chipset will mostly remain the same but will include increased I/O performance that is very important for the platform to be ready for Intel’s next generation Optane storage products that use Intel’s 3D XPoint memory architecture. So the basic features of the 200-series chipset aside from supporting Kaby Lake-S processors will include up to 24 PCI-e 3.0 lanes (up from 20 on 100-Series Chipset), 6 SATA 3.0 and 10 USB 3.0 ports.

    AMD’s Next Generation Summit Ridge Family – Zen Based With 40% IPC Improvement, AM4 Platform Support and A Glorious Return To The Desktop Market?



    AMD’s upcoming CPUs, Summit Ridge, will play a key role in deciding the future of the company. The industry hopes that AMD can make a big comeback with Summit Ridge which deploys Zen cores within it. The Zen core allows for up to 40% IPC improvements which is a huge increase over AMD’s 28nm offerings.
    The family will feature a range of processors based on the latest Zen core architecture. This core will be deployed in the high-end CPUs known as the FX Series. The Summit Ridge family is the official update to the Vishera family that was built upon the Piledriver core. Launched in 2012, the Vishera family replaced the Zambezi family which featured the AMD Bulldozer core architecture. After Piledriver, the FX series didn’t receive any update as AMD’s Steamroller and Excavator cores were aimed at the mainstream audience leaving the enthusiasts to stick to their older CPUs or move to Intel to feed their high-end needs.

    That is going to change in late 2016 as AMD is bringing the high-end back to enthusiasts in the form of Summit Ridge FX CPUs. In answering a question to one of the journalists during the earnings, Lisa stated that AMD will be working with several OEMs to bring Zen based PCs in the market later this year and have already closed in some design wins with the Zen processors while internally working with OEMs. Summit Ridge will be aiming the consumer DIY and OEM markets, feeding the needs high-performance needs of AMD fans. AMD has stated that Summit Ridge CPUs will mark their “re-entry” in the high-performance desktop market.
    Yes, so Hans, overall the Zen design win, we have been engaged very early on with you know large OEM and cloud providers on the Zen design point and the platforms that would be useful for Zen. So we have closed our first design win, we are working you know very closely with these OEM partners to make sure that they bring up their platforms concurrently with our own design validation and testing. I think the main message is we are on track with the schedule that we previously discussed in terms of sampling this year. We will introduce first in desktop and so we are having conversations with some of the PC OEMs about getting their platforms ready for desktop and then we will go into enterprise server first full year in 2017.
    We have secured several key design wins with global OEMs for our Zen based service CPU and believe we can rapidly reestablish our presence in the datacenter when we bring our new products to market in 2017. AMD via SeekingAlpha

    The Summit Ridge FX CPUs family will be supported on the latest AM4 motherboards that will feature latest I/O compatibility and DDR4 memory support. The AM4 motherboards will be housing the latest Promontory PCH which will allow SATA Express/NVMe and USB 3.1 support.
    WCCFTech AMD Summit Ridge Intel Kaby Lake
    Product Segment Enthusiast / Mainstream Desktop PCs Enthusiast / Mainstream Desktop PCs
    Product Architecture x86 Zen (+40% IPC compared to Excavator) 7th Gen Kaby Lake (+10% IPC compared to Skylake)
    Process Node 14nm 14nm
    Max CPU Cores ~8 4

    Socket AM4 LGA 1151
    PCH Promontory Z270
    Memory Support DDR4 DDR4
    Launch Q4 2016 Q4 2016

    Previous reports from the industry suggest that even with Summit Ridge deployed, the family would do little to shake away the market share from Intel’s already established desktop platforms. A revenue forecast by Forbes for AMD suggests that by 2020, AMD will gain a modest increase in processor market share. AMD will try really hard to recover their last ground in both consumer and server market against a strong Intel which already has their foots set in this market for quite a while. The competition between Kaby Lake and Summit Ridge will be one of the most intense stuff we have seen in some time in the processor market.

    Intel Mobile Platform Roadmap Shows Kaby Lake & Cannon Lake Still Coming

    The folks over at BenchLife are saying that Intel’s 14nm Kaby Lake and 10nm Cannon Lake mobile processors are still on track since Cannon Lake was pushed further out in 2015. They back up the claims with an image of a presentation slide that doesn’t appear to be marked confidential showing Kaby Lake being released in Q3 2016 and Cannon Lake in Q3 2017.
    image: http://www.legitreviews.com/wp-conte...ke-645x363.jpg
    Intel Mobile Platform Roadmap Showing Kaby Lake and Cannon Lake

    Kaby Lake is basically a Sky Lake refresh that will add native USB 3.1 support, native HDCP 2.2 support and full fixed function HEVC Main10/10-bit and VP9 10-bit hardware decoding. This slide is referring to Intel’s mobile platform, but we expect desktop processors to be updated around the same time. There will likely be a refresh of Intel Z170 desktop motherboards at this time to take advantage of the new features. Cannon Lake (formerly Skymont) is Intel’s codename for the 10nm die shrink of the Skylake microarchitecture. Cannon Lake is expected be used in conjunction with Intel 200 Series chipsets, also known as Union Point and will be the next major update for Intel.

    Intel 14nm Kaby Lake Processors Shipping in Q3 2016 – 10nm Cannonlake Chips Will Be Available in Q3 2017

    The latest Intel desktop roadmap has been leaked and features the two upcoming processor generations from the chip giant, Kaby Lake and Cannonlake. Published by Benchlife, the mobility roadmap from 2016-2017 will have three generation of processor, these include the currently available Skylake processors which are going to be replaced soon by Kaby Lake and its follow up Cannonlake which launches next year in the consumer market.

    Intel’s 14nm Kaby Lake Mobility and Desktop Processors Ready For 2016 Launch

    Intel’s Skylake processors launched back in Q3 2015 and were aimed specifically at the new Windows 10 based platforms. Intel is aiming to expand the scalability of their chip architecture by having the same DNA on top-end and entry level systems. Intel has a range of SKUs based on their Skylake architecture but moving forward, as 10 nm approaches, Intel plans to out do themselves with even more scalable solutions where the lowest power 4.5 Watt chips will deploy a full fledged architecture that will be found on their enterprise class Xeon chips.
    Right now, Intel has a massive lineup of Skylake chips which are aimed at consumer market, later this year, the will be expanding their lineup to enterprise, workstation and the high-end desktop markets which have a large array of users who use their chips. In fact, Intel is in a very dominant position in the high-end processor market with little to no competition.

    A slide showcasing improvements on Skylake based mobility products
    According to the leaked slide, Intel wants to refresh their processor lineup as early as Q3 2016. This will mark the introduction of Kaby Lake, the 7th generation processor family from Intel. Intel is expecting to have mobile chips ready by that time and will be introduced in several mobility solutions such as Ultrabooks, Notebooks and two in ones (2in1). This is just about the time when Back-To-School season starts and we will be looking at a variety of options from Intel’s OEM partners.
    Both desktop and mobility Kaby Lake processors will feature several SKUs. These include some key lineups such as Kaby Lake U, Kaby Lake Y, Kaby Lake H and Kaby Lake S chips. There could be more but so far we can only confirm these SKU. The specifications for each respective SKU and the chips derived from these lines can be seen in a detailed table below.

    Intel’s 14nm Kaby Lake Processors – What’s New In Intel’s 7th Generation Processor Family?

    As far as performance is concerned, unlike AMD who is updating from a architecture that arrived back in 2012 to which the IPC increase sounds quite big (40% expected), Intel has had constant IPC improvements from every new architecture introduced since Sandy Bridge. The cumulative IPC improvement from a Sandy Bridge chip on both desktop and notable mobility front is quite big. Intel wants to increase it by a good yet steady flow in their upcoming generation of processors. It won’t be notable to Skylake or even Broadwell users but users updating from older platforms will see the difference as they get improved I/O capabilities, better software support and updated drivers.

    Another key things that Kaby Lake will feature include the likes of a total SOC design, support for Thunderbolt 3, new media and display engines. Mobility users can expect a wide selection of processors to choose from with Intel making sure that their Kaby Lake products are up to date with the latest technology support available in 2016. A key update for mobility users will be the addition of even faster integrated graphics chips which will be a good decision from Intel since they are gaining quite the momentum in this department with their Iris and Iris Pro chips.

    ASUS’s ROG lineup for Skylake chips, Kaby Lake 200-Series boards will be even better!
    For the desktop users, Intel will deploy the latest 200-series motherboards. The latest 200-series motherboards will feature the LGA 1151 socket hence making Skylake chips work with the new boards and even Kaby Lake cpu workable with 100-series boards. The 200-series boards will include increased I/O performance that is very important for the platform to be ready for Intel’s next generation Optane storage products that use Intel’s 3D XPoint memory architecture. So the basic features of the 200-series chipset aside from supporting Kaby Lake-S processors will include up to 24 PCI-e 3.0 lanes (up from 20 on 100-Series Chipset), 6 SATA 3.0 and 10 USB 3.0 ports. Intel will deploy 35W-65W mainstream and 95W K-Series Kaby Lake chips on the desktop front that will allow faster performance to users upgrading from a 2-3 year old PC.
    Intel with their strong mobility lineup and full AIB support on the desktop markets will give them a clear advantage over AMD’s Summit Ridge and Bristol Ridge families which are expected to hit market later this year. AMD, after a really long time, will be in a position to take the fight to Intel in their home ground with a vastly improved Zen architecture based lineup that will be deployed in high-end FX series processors on the AM4 platform.
    Intel’s Cannonlake Mobility CPUs Available in Q3 2017 – 10nm Finally Gets A Reliable Launch Timeframe

    A few weeks ago, we narrowed down the launch window of Intel’s 10nm Cannonlake processors down to 2H 2017 thanks to Motely Fool. Today, we get an even more exact time frame and as the roadmap displays, the Cannonlake processors will be available to consumers in Q3 2017. This is kind of good news for consumers and also for Intel whose 10nm production has faced a lot of delays due to difficulties in the manufacturing of small process nodes.

    “As node transitions lengthened, we adapted our approach to the Tick-Tock method, which gave us a second product on each node. This strategy created better products for our customers and a competitive advantage for Intel. It also disproved the death of Moore’s Law predictions many times over. The last two technology transitions have signaled that our cadence today is closer to 2.5 years than two.
    To address this cadence, in the second half of 2016 we plan to introduce a third 14-nanometer product, code named Kaby Lake, built on the foundations of the Skylake micro-architecture but with key performance enhancements. Then in the second half of 2017, we expect to launch our first 10-nanometer product, code named Cannonlake. We expect that this addition to the roadmap will deliver new features and improved performance and pave the way for a smooth transition to 10-nanometers.”
    It looks like Intel will finally be pushing for Q3 2017 as the launch window of their 10nm processors. First up, Intel will deploy their mobility products and soon afterwards, they will launch a new desktop platform which will mark the arrival of the 8th generation processors on desktop PCs. As we near 2020, Intel will aim to use new technologies for chip development and production such as spintronics and the quantum tunneling that was discussed by Intel’s William Holt who leads the technology and manufacturing group at the cpu company. There are definitely interesting times coming ahead as we reach the end of life for silicon and newer materials will be deployed in the development of next generation processors.

    Será que temos bicho com mais IPC? Ou será apenas por ter mais Mhz?

    First Intel Core i7-7700k Benchmarks Are Out – Show An Impressive 40% Gain in Single Threaded Performance and 20% Gain in Multi Threaded Performance Over Skylake


    What are probably the first legitimate benchmarks of the upcoming Kaby Lake based Core i7-7700K processor have just been posted on a public database. And boy are they impressive. The benchmark in question is Geekbench 4 and showcases Intel’s new and improved 14nm+ architecture in all its glory. Not only does it perform faster overall but Intel has managed to push out a very significant single threaded performance increase as well.
    First Core i7-7700K benchmarks leak out along with the Gigabyte Z270X Motherboard

    The processor in question is the flagship SKU of the Kaby Lake lineup: the Core i7-7700K. It features 4 cores and 8 threads just like its predecessor but will actually be the highest clocked Intel CPU to date. With a base clock of 4.2 Ghz and boost clocks reported as high as 4.4-4.5 Ghz you are looking at what is essentially a factory overclocked monster. It’s even possible that with liquid cooling solutions we will see chips reaching clocks as high as 4.7 Ghz. The i7 7700k has a 95W TDP and is built for the LGA 1151 Socket. So without any further ado, let’s dive down into the benchmarks:
    The Geekbench [benchmark] is a general purpose, cross-platform benchmark, and the Core i7-7700K scores an outstanding 6131 score in single threaded performance. To put this into performance, the Skylake based Core i7 6700k scores around 4300 points. This means you are looking at an increase of approximately 42%, which is absolutely bonkers. Of course, we are not comparing on a clock to clock basis so this gain is not only the result of the refined architecture that Kaby Lake employs but also the result of the increased clock rate. Regardless of how the performance gain is achieved, it is a very impressive leap over its predecessor.

    The full entry of the benchmark can be found over at the Geekbench database.

    Enthusiasts are well aware of the fact that single threaded performance doesn’t scale linearly to multi-core but the Kaby Lake based Core i7-7700K does not disappoint even in that regard. In the multicore benchmark, the 7700k was able to achieve a score of 20243. To put this into perspective, a 6700k scores around 16756 which translates to a leap of approximately 20%. Going from one generation to the next, and on the same physical process, this is a very impressive leap in performance. All of us are guilty of having assumed that marketing content aside, Kaby Lake would just be another Skylake Refresh. But this leak effectively puts those rumors to rest, because if Geekbench is anything to go by Kaby Lake will offer a pretty significant increase in performance (at least for the mainstream chips).
    iPhone 7 Plus Apparently Sets New Record In Geekbench – High Clock Speed Recorded




    It is prudent to note here that due caution is advised in a few aspects of the matter. 1) It is never ever wise to take a single benchmark as being indicative of real life performance of a processor and 2) we will have to wait for a clock to clock analysis to actually figure out just how much better the Kaby Lake architecture is from Sky Lake. It is obvious that the Kaby Lake chips are much more OC friendly and will probably even have a little headroom left in them, but this is due to the 14nm node being very mature now and not something related to the architecture itself.
    One last thing that I would like to talk about is that there have been rumblings that the Kaby Lake lineup would be compatible with 100 series motherboards but unfortunately, this leak just adds to the confusion even further. The Z170X motherboard from Gigabyte is indeed listed in the benchmark, but alongside the Z270X mobo, which negates the point completely and makes it impossible for us to tell on which board the test was actually conducted. Motherboard names can be fetched from two different locations (this is why some mobos have a “To be filled in by OEM” showing at the bios) and it is very much possible that a Z170X motherboard was flashed to a Z270X without the bios name being changed, which resulted in this confusing report. Conversely, it is also possible that someone was trying very hard to hide the fact that this is a 200 series motherboard (no prizes for guessing who). In any case, the launch of KBL draws closer and very exciting times are ahead for PC enthusiasts.

    Mais 9% de IPC...... A Intel sem concorrência anda mesmo a desleixar-se!

    http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Intel-C...647#Benchmarks

    The Core i7-7700K is not due for release until January 2017 but one of our users has submitted benchmarks for it already. We only have one sample so these benchmark results are obviously preliminary. Comparing the 7700K and 6700K shows that average effective speed is up by an impressive 14%. 5% of the increase is accounted for by an increase in the Turbo clock from 4.2 to 4.4 GHz. This would imply that Kaby Lake has an IPC improvement of around 9% over Skylake (preliminary). Although official prices are not yet available, the i7-7700K is likely to cost around $360 which would be in line with the last few generations of flagship i7 releases . We will revisit this summary when we have more samples.

    Esses imbecis continuam a produzir 1150. Os Skylke já cá estão há mais de um ano e os Haswell continuam ai em massa.

    Faz algum sentido terem duas sockets mainstream e ainda uma revisão?!
    AMD SAPPHIRE ASROCK POWER EVERYWHERE. DEATH TO INTEL.
