Intel’s first 10nm desktop processors shouldn’t be expected until fall. Perhaps they will be released at the very end of the year
Intel introduced Alder Lake processors ten days ago. Recall that these will be heterogeneous CPUs with large and small cores. Such processors will be released in both the mobile and desktop segments, and in the latter case, firstly, they will be the first in the segment of 10nm CPUs, and secondly, they will be the first with the LGA 1700 performance.
Intel mentioned during the announcement that the new CPUs will be released in the second quarter. Now Bob Swan (Bob Swan), who until February 15 remains in the chair of the head of the company, said that Alder Lake in the second half of this year Intel will conduct a final test, and then begin mass production. On the one hand, this is confirmed by Intel’s earlier statement, and there is nothing new here. But on the other hand, it becomes clear that sometime in the second half of the year the company will just start producing new CPUs, and they will enter the market even later. That is, you should definitely not expect such processors in the summer.
Most likely, Alder Lake will be released towards the end of the year or at the very end of it. At the same time, Swan added that this applies to both desktop and mobile CPUs, that is, they should hit the market at about the same time.
