Intel Ice Lake 10nm desktop confirmed via Linux support
Intel arrives late in its manufacture of nodes below its 14nm for desktop computers, despite having repeatedly announced the evolution of its manufacturing process in its roadmaps in past years, so far we have seen nothing more than rehashes of the architecture sky lake dating back to 2015.
This has triggered criticism from the enthusiast community, even more so with the arrival of the AMD Ryzen 7nmto the point of reaching rumors about the cancellation of desktop CPUs in 10 nanometers.
Intel, however, came out to deny these rumors to comment that the jump to 10nm was on the right track, although the dates that were being considered were not very encouraging, since supposedly we would not see 10nm on the desktop until the end of 2021 at least. .
We still don’t know what date Ice Lake will arrive for desktop, at least now we know that it will arrive at some point, thanks in part to the introduction in the database of the linux kernel mailing list (LKML), which has seen support added for Ice Lake in its server and desktop versions.
It can only be expected in the absence of official confirmation that they will be launched around the summer of 2020a date that is taking shape for the launch of the Intel XE dedicated graphics cardsthen, amd will already be presenting Zen 3 with the manufacturing process 7nm+ and with improvements in CPI.
