Cannon Lake (microarchitecture)
Cannon Lake (formerly Skymont) is Intel's codename for the 10-nanometer die shrink of the Kaby Lake microarchitecture. As a die shrink, Cannon Lake is a new process in Intel's "Process-Architecture-Optimization" execution plan as the next step in semiconductor fabrication. Cannon Lake CPUs are the first mainstream CPUs to include the AVX-512 instruction set.
|Transistors||10 nm (Tri-Gate) transistors|
|Instructions||x86-64, Intel 64|
|Predecessor||Desktop: Coffee Lake (2nd Optimization)|
|Successor||Ice Lake (Architecture)|
Cannon Lake was initially expected to be released in 2016, but the release was pushed back to 2018. Intel demonstrated a laptop with an unknown Cannon Lake CPU at CES 2017 and announced that Cannon Lake based products will be available in 2018 at the earliest.
At CES 2018 (Jan 9, 2018 – Jan 12, 2018) Intel announced that they had started shipping mobile Cannon Lake CPUs at the end of 2017 and that they would ramp up production in 2018. No further details were disclosed.
