On Intel's earnings call yesterday, CEO Brian Krzanich confirmed that the company is shipping its seventh-generation Core processors, code-named Kaby Lake. Kaby Lake CPUs will be the first product of Intel's new "process-architecture-optimization" product-development model, where at least three major families of chips will be produced on a process node.
Though "shipping" is a rather exciting word, Intel clarified that it's moving chips out to its "customers and OEMs," not retail channels. The company also says Kaby Lake chips are poised to deliver "meaningful" performance increases compared to Skylake CPUs.
Krzanich also noted that Intel is on track to ship Optane SSDs this year. In a response to an investor question, the CEO said those SSDs will begin shipping at the end of this year, while Optane DIMMs will follow in 2017. Optane products will use Intel's 3D Xpoint memory technology, and they could deliver huge speed-ups in storage performance compared to today's NAND flash.
