Intel Pressured By AMD Ryzen's Success; Moves Coffee Lake & Basin Falls Launch Date Up The Calendar
Intel has been having serious competition from AMD for the past few months since the company now headed by CEO Lisa Su is hard at work with their Ryzen line of processors. Because of their competitor's successful comeback, the Santa Clara company is reportedly unveiling their Basin Falls processors earlier than expected. On top of that, they are also tipped to move the release of Coffee Lake up the calendar.
Coffee Lake Amended Release Timeline
According to Digital Trends, Coffee Lake is a 14-nanometer transistor coming from processing giant Intel. The company was expected to release the first batch of the processor early 2018. But it looks like it will be made available in as early as August.
On the other hand, Intel has also been working on Apple-compatible Coffee Lake chips. These were supposed to launch between April to June 2018. But because of the heated competition in the processor industry, the company is rumored to have amended their release timeline. Instead, the fourth-in-line 14-nanometor processors for Apple machines will hit the market in late 2017 or early 2018.
Basin Falls Processors' Launch Date
Meanwhile, Intel will also be joining other tech companies at Computex Taipei 2017, MacRumors writes. This is the chosen avenue for release of the Basin Falls line of processors by Intel, according to reports. And since the event takes place from May 30 to Jun. 3, then Skylake-X, Kaby Lake-X and the X299 chipsets will be unveiled two months ahead of the original schedule.
The Skylake-X series consists of 140W processors and will be available with 6, 8 and 10-core variants. The Kaby Lake X-series, on the other hand, has an 112W quad-core processor. Intel will also follow up the release of the Basin Falls platform with a 12-core variant for the former series.
All these comes after the success of the Ryzen line of processors from rival company AMD. This series of chipsets from the Sunnyvale company has been dubbed the "Intel killer." The first quarter launch and the ensuing popularity has prompted Intel to sped-up action.
