The first rumors about the intentions of Intel to increase the number of cores in processors for mainstream desktop platform appeared in 2018. According to preliminary information, the flagship. Lake-S will be a 10-core CPU, and now it’s confirmed drivers for Linux.
Main characteristics. As reported by Overclockers, Intel. Lake-S still use the Skylake microarchitecture, including integrated graphics core GT2 generation Gen9, familiar from actual chips.
For the production of new products will use superior 14-nanometer process technology. At the same time promising architecture Sunny Cove will appear in the desktop segment through at least one generation of CPU.
Will the chips. Lake-S to be supported by current boards on the market, 300 series, or Intel will release new chipsets. Note that mobile solutions Ice Lake-U will move to the new microarchitecture and 10-nanometer process technology this year.
Mention of Comet Lake-S found in the code of Linux
The competition with AMD. According to the journalists from ComputerBase, another increase in the number of nuclei in the mass CPU Intel due to the threat from AMD.
This summer, the “red” will release CPUs Ryzen 3000 series on the basis of the 7-nanometer architecture Zen 2. AMD they used the so-called “chipley design”, which allows us to accommodate the AM4 linings to 12-16 cores.
