DigiTimes: "Some" Cannon Lake CPUs Delayed!

E-mail Print PDF
DigiTimes:

DigiTimes claims Intel has rescheduled the release of "some" next-generation Cannon Lake-based processors-- mainly ones with integrated GPUs-- to end 2018, affecting notebook makers and their suppliers.

According to unnamed sources from the upstream supply chain, the situation is bad enough some vendors are considering skipping the 10nm Cannon Lake in favour of its eventual successor, Ice Lake. After all, the Intel roadmap shows Ice Lake will be available "shortly after" the rescheduled Cannon Lake launch.

In turn, Intel says the first 10nm products should ship by end 2017, beginning with a lower volume SKU before an H1 2017 volume ramp. Recently Chipzilla presented an update on the 10nm process technology at a Technology and Manufacturing Day event in Beijing, but had nothing to say on the reported delay.

InfoComm International Changes Name to AVIXA

In a surprise announcement InfoComm International (as in the organisation) changes its name to the Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association, or AVIXA.

For now, InfoComm the trade show-- both the one taking place in the US in June and international versions such as InfoComm China-- will retain the name, only the organiser is now AVIXA, not InfoComm International.

But why would would the organisation formerly known as InfoComm International change its name? As CEO David Labuskes puts it, “you shouldn’t change your name. If you can do anything else, you shouldn’t change your name… But [after much thought and discussion], none of the other options worked or were authentic.”

Norway to House

The small Norwegian town of Ballangen, located in the Arctic Circle, is set to house what is claimed to be the "world's largest" datacentre-- a massive facility covering 600000 square metres.

The area makes it bigger than the current leader in datacentre size, a facility in Langfang, China. However the record might soon be beaten by a still-in-development centre in Nevada, the US.

The facility will be built by Kolos, an US-Norwegian company with offices in Norway, the US and Europe. It says the datacentre will initially draw in 70MW of power, a total to grow by 1000MW once the facility is fully built. The power will come from renewable sources, namely hydropower stations and wind farms, and the facility will operate at 60% reduction in energy to make what Kolos claims is "the most competitive datacentre in the world.”
