    small typo
    "change with the intorduction of Cannonlake"

    finally we will move away from 4 as the norm !

    Just bought skylake - check out my build https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/MrjcCJ

    Wonder when Canonolake will release - a whole new motherbaord architecture will be required again so it's going to cost Intel as well as consumers

    Re: Intel to go beyond quad-core with Cannonlake processor family

    The article says these will just be for SOC's (mobile platforms). So the news isn't all that wonderful to system builders and enthusiasts. I wish they'd hurry up and give us more than 4 cores on all i7's, it must be about a decade now intel have been sticking to 4 cores maximum on most CPU's

    The article only mentions mobile in reference to ARMs current developments. The LinkedIn quote is a bit confusing, as it states SoC but only specifies CPUs + an interconnect that's "like a Northbridge", which is exactly what we currently have in the mainstream. But even if Cannonlake is a full SoC, there's nothing to stop it being both desktop and socketed: we've had consumer desktop socketed SoCs for 18 months now...

    The cost is always pushed down the ladder towards the consumer. I've never seen a chip manufacturer change sockets as much as Intel. We don't see these as regular ARM or even AMD. Mind you I am an Intel user and I've always been. But I'm finding it increasingly hard to justify MOBO replacement whenever Intel snaps their fingers.

    Re: Intel to go beyond quad-core with Cannonlake processor family

    By late 2017 we'll be using 32 core mobile phones!

    This is very late in my opinion, Intel should have been upping the core count on current products. However they decided to just cut costs due to a lack of competition. Hope you've enjoyed your 5% YoY improvement this year.

    No it won't.

    Re: Intel to go beyond quad-core with Cannonlake processor family

    Well it seems likely that AMD Zen, whilst being a substantial improvement, will still not match Cannonlake for single threaded IPC performance, but will instead compete on core count with 4,6 & 8 variants, just like in the Phenom II days.

    I would guess an 8 core Zen will cost pretty similar to a 4c/8t Intel Cannonlake.

    Many people would take a 6 or 8 core Zen, which is (for example) 20% slower on single threaded operations, over a 4 core Intel Cannonlake.

    It's a bit early to tell all that for sure yet, although it does look like that's how it may pan out.

    I wouldn't bet on that, that approach hasn't worked out so far and unless we are absolutely bombarded with multi-threaded apps and games that show end-user improvements (or at the very least show very little negative gains) in the next 6-12 months, I can see the higher IPC parts winning-out again.

    Didn't bother reading the article but given it's by Ashraf Eassa (the only reason I even clicked it was to confirm my suspicion) I already know that most of it will be complete crap.

    Re: Intel to go beyond quad-core with Cannonlake processor family

    Of course they are going to have more then 4 cores, I had just decided that I am going to get a Skylake chip to replace my Q9550 . I seriously doubt I can carry on trying to game on this machine into 2018 or beyond.
