Known as the 11th generation of Core processors, Intel’s next generation will be built for the umpteenth time on the brand’s 14-nanometer node. These processors are said to have Cypress Cove cores, a “backport” of the Golden Cove found in the Ice Lake generation. The 500 series of motherboards will be the last to feature DDR4 RAM, as DDR5 RAM will not yet be ready for launch.
Intel H510, B560 and Z590 will arrive on January 11
According to a Chinese media, those who published a news on the WeChat platform, we have for the first time information on the launch date of these new chipsets: according to the source, Intel will supposedly put them on the streets on January 11 , just as the Intel conference takes place at CES 2021.
The initial platform will include motherboards from all of Intel’s partner manufacturers, such as ASRock, ASUS, MSI or Gigabyte, and is finally expected to support the much needed PCIe 4.0 protocol. The release date should be taken with a grain of salt, of course, as there is a high likelihood that they will simply showcase the new chipsets and not make a launch as such, although the source has indicated otherwise.
Until when will Intel press 14nm?
Intel’s manufacturing process has spanned many, many generations without diminishing lithography, and as AMD continues to evolve its processors more and more using new manufacturing methods, Intel continues to tighten its knot to satiety. at 14nm, and it looks like the update will never come. As the company continues to refine and improve it, the reality is that in terms of performance efficiency per watt, Intel is already far behind (and we’re saying it has stayed, not that it is. lagging behind because it’s been overdue for years.), what users see and evidence is at the expense of Intel processor sales to AMD’s benefit in recent years.
The problems with the advanced nodes and the “promised” manufacturing processes at 7 and 10nm are not happening, support for PCIe 4.0 is very late and as much as they say they are providing a new architecture with the new platform. form, the point is that they are late and bad.
The 14nm is more than spent and profitable, and if Intel doesn’t scale this 11th generation of processors, it could be the final blow for the company. AMD is getting stronger, it gives users what they ask for and what they need and Intel continues its closed policy of releasing news granite by granite, with no real improvements that make users think that an update to the platform -form worth the trouble.
