2018 has not been a good year for Intel. The year has been riddled with several setbacks such as Brian Krzanich, Intel’s CEO, stepping down from his position of responsibility, security vulnerability being discovered in the Intel processors, AMD capturing a market that is twice of that of Intel, and the usual struggle of Intel to make more portable CPUs that offer high performance.
However, as the year comes to an end, the company has finally started to find it’s footing by creating a scalable action plan for reminding the customers the reason behind how Intel came to be the most reliable and longest standing tech firm in the field of processors.
This action plan encompasses three segments: brand new integrated GPUs, brand new CPU architecture along with an overhauled method of creating the chipset to make the processors faster and more scalable.
These three elements seem to be Intel’s direct answer to the criticisms thrown at the firm. The integrated GPU just cannot be compared to the ones present in Intel’s competitors’ chips. Intel might roll out the discrete GPUs in the year 2020. In the meantime, the company battled to launch their first 10 nanometer processors, which were code named “Ice Lake” and consisted of an architectural organization that will no longer be following the SkyLake guidelines. As per the reports, Intel has been delaying the release and commercial manufacturing of the chipsets and this repeated delay has eroded the trust that Intel has been enjoying for over decades.
When it comes to improved integrated graphics, Intel’s processors will be based on Gen11 and will feature in 10nm chipsets in the coming year.
Coming to the new Intel microarchitecture that will be replacing the SkyLake architecture – it has been dubbed as Sunny Cove. This architecture will feature in the Xeon server along with Core desktop chipsets in 2019. Stay tuned with TechnoCodex for more updates.
