Intel postpones Kaby Lake processors

Intel postpones Kaby Lake processors

The recently discovered Intel Kaby Lake processors have been pushed back by 6 months time in the latest Intel roadmap. Thus the new processors will arrive in late 2016 instead of early 2016 as previously expected.

There’s no official reason for the delay but with Skylake knocking on the door and thanks to weak competition from AMD on the CPU market Intel probably does not see a reason to hurry new processors to the market. Unfortunately there’s very little information on Kaby Lake but we suspect that the new CPU generation will use the same upcoming LGA 1151 socket and will make use of DDR4 memory.

The delay of Kaby Lake means that the 10 nm Cannonlake generation also gets more distant in the future. Cannonlake may appear in 2018 at the earliest and apart from all aforementioned reasons for these delays there might be another problem – a very difficult transition to 10 nm. As a comparison Kaby Lake will use 14 nm transistors when it comes out.
