Intel Readies for the Future With Ice Lake

E-mail Print PDF

Intel might still have to officially the 8th generation of Core architecture, code named Coffee Lake, but it has already revealed details of the next generation-- Ice Lake.

Intel chipDescribed as the "successor the 8th generation Intel Core processor family," Ice Lake processors will be built using a 10nm+ process. This is perhaps an odd move, since Chipzilla is still to officially detail the first 10nm Core architecture, Cannon Lake. It also throws a spanner in what is a confusing naming convention, what with Kaby Lake (14nm+), Coffee Lake (14nm++),  Cannon Lake (10mm) and now Ice Lake (10nm+).

Chipzilla originally hoped to move to a 10nm process by the end of 2016, 2 years after the launch of the 14nm process. However the technology proved more challenging than expected, probably due to a yield rate not high enough for the company. According to Anandtech, the process also depends on die size, with the first products using it being designed for smaller mobile applications (since yields for smaller parts are better than larger parts at the same defect rate).

Kaspersky Labs and Microsoft reach an agreement on how Windows 10 deals with 3rd party antivirus software-- leading to Kaspersky dropping its European antitrust complaint against Microsoft.

Kaspersky LabsThe Russian security company filed an antitrust complaint with the European Commission last June, following a similar complaint with the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS). It claimed Microsoft uses its dominant position to push Windows Defender, a security solution Kaspersky deems inferior, by switching off rival antivirus software.

In addition, Kaspersky said Microsoft does not provide developers with enough time to full test Windows 10 upgrades to ensure compatibility with existing software.
