Revealed Dual Core Intel Cannon Lake 10nm Processor Integrated With Gen 10 GPU

The existence of the long-awaited Intel Cannon Lake processor seems to be about to be realized in the not-too-distant future as its unofficial debut in the SANDRA SiSoftware database coincides with some unreleased Coffee Lake processors.


The blessing revealed it may have shown that Intel has just started sending engineering samples from Cannon Lake to OEMs and perhaps some of the reviewers to which they were destined. Listed as dual-core processor Cannon Lake with Hyper Threading support, this processor is claimed to be equipped with 2.2GHz base clock speed and 2.6GHz boost clock.

The existing dual-core portion will also be equipped with Intel Ultra HD Graphics integrated based on Intel Gen 10 architecture (as also owned by Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake processors each using Gen 9 and Gen 9.5 graphics). Unfortunately, the list does not reveal any other vital support information on graphics, such as clockspires and much more. 

What is listed through the SANDRA database (again, assuming it's real) is undoubtedly a mobile processor, and not a desktop chip. That way it would be very interesting to see Intel rolling out the processor with a 2-core / 4-thread design, because now there's an 8th generation Core processor intended for laptops that are quad-core chips. The difference here is the Cannon Lake section seems to be an ultra low power chip for tablets, detachables, and computer sticks (Cannon Lake-Y).

Cannon Lake is Intel's first chip built on 10 nanometer manufacturing process. It's been a challenge for Intel to switch to the 10nm process, so it's only natural that Intel seems to take a long time to bring Cannon Lake to life. But apart from all that, Intel seems to be maintaining the existence of its 10nm technology staying as a full-fledged generation ahead of other 10nm technologies with the support of "world's best-selling and metal transistor along with the presence of hyper-scale features for density excellence."
