Intel server processors to 10 nanometers
While AMD has yet to announce the first of the FX series desktop processors and CPUs Opteron processors for servers and workstations that are based on 32 nanometer Bulldozer, rival Intel seems to have already planned the future of the CPU for the enterprise market until 2018. A slide appeared on network shows in fact the names of server architectures implemented in the next 7 years.
First confirmed Tick-Tock strategy, namely a new production process (die-shrink) in even years (phase tick) and a new architecture in odd years (phase Tock). Following this approach, next year will Ivy Bridge with 22-nanometermanufacturing process, followed by the new architecture Haswell more than 22 nanometers, which will be the first to introduce the SoC (system-on-Chip) is also in the mainstream.
Haswell to follow Rockwell and Skylake to 14 nanometers, and finallySkymont to 10 nanometers in 2018. It is early to talk about technical features, but is granted an increase in the number of cores, the amount of cache and operating frequencies, as well as support for PCI Express 3.0 and 4.0 , DDR4 memory and the use of new technologies for high-speed link between the various components of the platforms.
Intel had previously shown a roadmap until 2019, when the transistors are no longer produced with silicon, but carbon nanotubes from 5 nanometers and the interconnections between the components will be implemented using optical technologies.
