Not too long ago，BenchLife, a technology website，Exposure of a large number of route map information about Intel 2018 processor product line，And mostly focuses on consumers are most concerned about desktop computer processors，Worth a look。
Then why say it? Because of the two years，Observations published by Intel product is not difficult to find，Intel Mobile product on time every year to update，Repeated delays in desktop，Seventh generation Kaby Lake architecture now desktop processors have not released，Look for desktop chips enough attention。
Intel Desktop chip business is still important
We learned from the investigation agency Statista statistics，Global shipments of desktop computers that remain in a falling State。Specifically，Early in 2010, when there were 157 million shipments，But by the year 2016，Current shipments only 103 million，In six years time, fell by as much as 34%。But the Agency is expected to，2017Even by the year 2020，Shipments will continue to fall。
Of course，It may not be surprising，After all, many suitable for lap use of mobile computing devices，As well as many forms of portable products，Such as tablet computers and big-screen smart phones，Have been able to complete many common tasks on user's original desktop computer，Instead became the core user main daily device also is a normal。
But，Throughout the sharp decline in shipments of desktop computers，For Intel is by no means a good thing，Amount of orders for desktop processors，Intel were still earn a large part of business，Annual income of more than $10 billion。
If at some point，Intel's chip business is today one of the world's top ten semiconductor companies，In HIS various semiconductor companies at least 2015 annual revenue survey，Intel ranked in the top ten，But as the desktop chip shipments fell，Possibility of not no down put up notice。
The above case，Intel Desktop chip the size of the business is still quite important these days，The overall financing levels have a direct interest。
So，2018 prepared what Intel desktop computer processors are worth watching? Without further ADO，We'll find out what。
"Again" to 14 nm Coffee Lake
As early as in January this year when，Many of us already know，Latest generation Intel desktop computer processors，Kaby Lake seventh daikurui based processor design。But，Then began a long period of time there were rumours，Kaby Lake taking over the desktop next microarchitecture, code-named Coffee Lake (coffee Lake)。
Coffee Lake has now been widely reported，Allegedly based on Intel's most sophisticated 14-nm process technology and derivatives。And before the same was widely reported in the news，According to Intel has repeatedly stressed that chip plans，2017Second half of the year，Should be expected to achieve the latest 10-nanometer technology chips production。But now look at，Desktop computer chips with 10 nm seems a bit hanging on，Specific reasons not known，Intel to jump to the second half of the year 2018 in order to achieve。
BenchLife said，New leaks Coffee Lake news，Actually Intel accidentally released the information on the site，Almost certain，Coffee code of chip Lake which he called Cannon Lake products，And Coffee Lake still can't use Intel latest 10 nm process to build，The upgrade is to improve the State of the art architecture。
But may is disappointing，Coffee Lake and Kaby Lake does not change the core framework。
Although chip infrastructure improvements，Can also bring about improvements in performance and energy efficiency，But large or small is not clear，Considering Intel chip architecture for a long time investing a lot of money on research and development，Is to ensure that the architecture improvement plays a big role，Just pray don't let people down。
Other than that，BenchLife said，Coffee Lake is expected to debut around February 2018，And the point in time，Kaby Lake desktop chip shipments early next year is almost exactly one-year anniversary of。
What does this mean?
Relative to Kaby Lake desktop processor microarchitecture，If Intel made prominent in the Coffee Lake architecture improvements，Hard to reflect the new chips "new" where。Intel will be how to deal with this problem?
According to the BenchLife disclosure of content，Coffee Lake micro-architecture desktop processor will have two very bright variants of models，First is the so-called "6+2" configuration，Specifically refers to the "six-core CPU GT2 GPU"，With Kaby Lake quad-core processor is expected to use the same market positioning and pricing，And the processor is the most worth buying Coffee Lake products。
The second eye-"4+2" configuration，Or "quad-core CPU GT2 GPU"，Kaby Lake same top representatives of desktop chips。
If reasonable projections,，Coffee Lake top of quad-core processors，In the case of Intel infrastructure a little knife，Coupled with the most mature 14-nanometer technology process，Must have access to higher-than-Kaby Lake desktop processor frequency，So as to provide a better CPU performance。
As for GPU nuclear，Just promoted to Gen9.5 products，Count on this promotion。
This unprecedented upgrade programme is too fake，But Intel has been under implementation。Kaby Lake released early next year, desktop chips，Remained to a large extent the same as Skylake microarchitecture，Intel is only slightly adjusted the Tri-gate transistors，Focus on optimal aspect ratio and fin pitch space，Improve the performance of the transistor channel strain。
But Intel clearly，Kaby Lake differs from Skylake big technology process，Because it primarily uses the "14nm+" process process，Ensure that the kernel under the established power through increased frequencies to create a higher level of performance。
2018Years Intel's strategy seems to be nuclear!
In brief，View from the BenchLife broke the，2018Years Intel's desktop strategy is very simple，Is through the more processor cores to increase performance。
From the standpoint of making money，Intel makes sense，Flowers small cost to complete upgrade。In terms of marketing，Boasting six-core processors are better than quad-core。And，Mainstream desktop processor Intel lineup，Since a long time is to keep the quad-core configuration，Many players and fans also think it is time to increase the number of cores。
But，So many years have passed，In the field of consumer，Still not much to really make full use of multi-core applications，This is main reason Intel did not survive by core。Anyway，After the Coffee Lake，Intel probably will try to get back to the best upgrade strategy，Every kernel is to directly improve the performance and energy efficiency，Instead of continuing to heap more kernels。
