But only in 2021
We recently called back Intel rocket leak processors. Remember, this is the generation that will come to the market in 2021 in different segments. On desktops, these CPUs will come after Comet Leak (but not the alternative), and in mobile, there will be plenty of leak refresh and whiskey leaks.
In this case, the rocket leak CPU would still be 14 nanometers. However, the new data gives hope that not everything is as bad. According to sources, Intel is working to integrate Kov Microarchitecture into 14-nanometer process technology and use it in rocket leak processors. Willow Cove is a microculture that will be implemented in Tiger Lake processors, which will replace the Ice Leak processors. That is, it is really a new micro-architecture. As a result, rocket leak CPUs, even with the protection of the 14-nanometer process technology, can prove more productive than previous generations.
At the same time, we remember that the desktop will be the first Intel CPU to receive the Rocket Lake Xe GPU. That is, even without changing process technology, completely new CPUs can be expected of us. True, recent roadmaps indicate that such processors will have only six cores, so this line cannot clearly cover all the required components.
Intel had the opportunity to prevent such a successful revenge AMD
But you know what happened
The first generation of Intel Core processors came out ten years ago. These CPUs were LGA 1156 and the maximum configuration was four cores.
The first six Core Intel processors in the regular desktop segment (excluding HEDT) only showed up with the arrival of considerable leak generation at the end of 2017. One year later, we got eight-core Core i7 and Core i9, and next year will be 10-core CPUs. All of this is a result of efforts to compete with AMD resin processors, which were released in 2017, which initially offered models with eight cores, and now have 16 cores in the Top & Risk 93950X. If not for AMD, it’s unclear if we will buy the Quad Core i7 for $ 350.
And if anyone believes that AMD wasn’t the trigger for Intel, then they should look at the Intel processor found by a source created four years ago. This CPU has LGA 1156 performance.
At first glance, this is the most common processor, except for a weird one. But the most interesting thing is that it’s under the guise of it.
As you can see, this is a multi-chip solution. Intel no longer uses this approach for ordinary consumer CPUs, but AMD sticks to it.
It is worth noting that this is not a serial instance and not even a prototype, as the processor does not have SMD elements. This is probably a demo. Perhaps, it’s an eight-core processor, though there’s no way to confirm it right now.
The interesting thing about this story is that it is not the only example. Such CPUs can be purchased on eBay, and in speculation. And one of the sources claims that 100,000 of these CPUs created! Against this background. An assumption that these were just spaces for temperature tests seems inevitable.
