Reports: Intel shipped 10-nm Cannon Lake CPUs ahead of the new year

Intel announced this morning that it's shipping 10-nm Cannon Lake CPUs during a brief media event at its CES booth. Gregory Bryant, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the company's client computing group, took to the stage to confirm that silicon built on the company's next-generation process is on its way to partners, and that those chips were moving before the end of last year, according to reports from Anandtech and Tom's Hardware.

Going by those reports, Intel didn't offer any details of the 10-nm chips that it was shipping, but it did state that it's ready to ramp 10-nm production over the course of 2018. While it's heartening to know that 10-nm chips are moving in some form, this quiet announcement leaves us wanting to know much more about the depth and breadth of Intel's 10-nm ambitions in the year ahead. We'll be chatting more with Intel over the coming days and hope to learn more.

    I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Right now it appears that this may be ‘shipped early production dies for in-house testing and qualification’…

    Wow, not only a paper launch, it’s a *backdated* paper launch.

    Two possibilities:
    1) Cannon lake will bring them back on track for June product launches. (Computex IIRC?) This could explain why Coffee lake was so half-assed. With Zen+ launching “Q2 2018” which means end of June coming from AMD, that would allow Intel launch right on top of AMD, maybe they’d delay till July so they can steal AMD’s publicity.
    2) Since it just launched in October, Intel is going to milk Coffee lake for a while longer and we’ll see Cannon lake around the same time in 2018. This would only happen if Intel is comfortable with how they sit against Zen+

    If Intel shipped them for actual end products, where are they? I would presume some announcements at CES but all seems to be quiet on this front for Cannon Lake.

      There have been rumblings about Cannon Lake in chromebooks going back to last year: [url<]https://liliputing.com/2017/06/first-signs-intel-cannonlake-powered-chromebook.html[/url<] Intel theoretically could have "shipped" a batch of CPUs for a product that won't be announced until this spring or so.

    Sure you did Intel.
    Sure you did.

    Pass me the airplane glue and I’ll tell you another one!

    I have to wonder if these will have a Meltdown, or some Specter from the past rolling around in their designs.

      Given how long chip design cycles are, I’d guess almost certainly yes. IIRC a more reasonable timeline for a hardware fix would be in Ice Lake or Tiger Lake.

        There’s also something called Whiskey Lake, according to [url<]https://www.hwinfo.com/news.php[/url<] Maybe Intel's drunk a bit too much 😉

          Whisky has alcohol.

          Alcohol is an anti-freeze that [b<]MELTS DOWN[/b<] ice. I'm not sure about the rest of the train of thought but GO HOME INTEL YOU'RE DRUNK!

      In silicon, unlikely, in microcode, likely.
