Intel 'Cooper Lake' najnoviji zastoj od 14 nm između 'Cascade Lake' i 'Ice Lake'



With no end to its 10 nm transition woes in sight (at least not until late-2019), Intel is left with refinement of its existing CPU micro-architectures on the 14 nanometer node. The client-desktop segment sees the introduction of the 'Whiskey Lake' (aka Coffee Lake Refresh) later this year; while the enterprise segment gets the 14 nm 'Cascade Lake.' To its credit, Cascade Lake introduces a few major platform innovations, such as support for Optane Persistent Memory, silicon-level hardening against recent security vulnerabilities, and Deep Learning Boost, which is hardware-accelerated neural net building/training, and the introduction of VNNI (Variable Length Neural Network Instructions). 'Cascade Lake' makes its debut towards the end of 2018. It will be succeeded in 2019 by Ice Lake the new 'Cooper Lake' architecture.

'Cooper Lake' je osvježenje 'Cascade Lake' i zaustavljanje u Intelovoj sagi o ispravnosti od 10 nm, tako da bi se na njemu moglo graditi 'Ice Lake'. Izgradit će se na posljednjoj (nadamo se) iteraciji čvora 14 nm. Dijelit će svoju platformu s 'Cascade Lake', i tako preko Optane стойne memorije. Promijenjen je set značajki Deep Learning Boost, koji će biti nadopunjen s nekoliko novih uputa, uključujući BFLOAT16 (moguću instrukciju s pomičnom točkom s pola preciznosti). Intel bi također mogao biti predstavljen sa mogućnošću podešavanja brzine takta po cijeloj ploči.
