New leaks have provided further insight into Intel's release plans for the forthcoming 10nm Cannonlake and Ice Lake CPUs.
A video posted on YouTube gave a supposed insight into the semiconductor company's next generation of PC and server microprocessors, including the rumoured Cannonlake and Ice Lake models, which are expected later this year.
These have long been delayed due to challenges in shifting chip manufacturing to the 10nm process - and the disclosures of the Meltdown and Spectre CPU security bugs can't have helped - but if the leak proves to be accurate, the company can be expected to announce three new mobile processors within the coming months.
They will be aimed at different target markets and price points, although there is no word of an official launch date yet.
The first of these processors is the much-anticipated Cannonlake-Y. While this is only a code name for the mobile CPU, it is expected to sport two cores and offer four threads of processing power, while sipping just 4.5 watts of power.
This chip has a base clock of 1.1GHz, but offers Gen 10 graphics and LPDDR4 memory. The device is clearly aimed at the low-cost, low-power market for cheap laptops.
Intel is also preparing an Intel Ice Lake-U processor but, again, details of its official name are sketchy. As for its specs, it will come with four cores and offer eight threads, alongside Intel's Gen 11 LP graphics.
Reports also suggest that some models of the processor could have an integrated GPU bearing up to 48 execution units, with the GPU running at a base clock of 600MHz and coming with DDR4 SODIMM memory. That is a significant jump compared to current GT2 graphics chips.
Finally, the company is also planning to launch a 14mn core i7-8559U, which is likely planned for new PCs. The chip features four cores, eight threads and a base frequency of 2.7GHz.
The processor has Intel's own Iris Plus Graphics 650 GPU integrated with it offering 48 execution units, and running at up to 1,100MHz. This will come with 64MB of DRAM embedded as level 4 cache.
