Intel made a flurry of new announcements at their recent "Architecture Day" event. Among other things, they revealed an "industry first" 3D chip stacking technology called Foveros, the Sunny Cove CPU architecture, and Gen11 integrated graphics. Check out our coverage of the event here.

Intel and ms should team up and give users the ability to download updates (ads) at twice the speed of conventional intel chips thus allowing ms to delete user files in half the time.
Oh wait.......

Funny, I have heard of IBM already doing some experimentation in stacking cores... Don't know where that led.

lol, How does one turn on HT selectively from one core to the next? Can we have a Core i3 with 4 cores and five threads?

Actually, the biggest performance improvement for the entire architecture is looking to be the GPU. After Skylake GT4 hit a big fat performance wall, Intel has been aching to release a graphics chipset anywhere near AMD's 2400g.

It features tile-based rendering, and the GT2 model features almost the same number of EUs as Skylake's failboat GT4, so Intel seems confident it can feed this new beast. It would not surprise me of the same architecture is under the hood of their new discrete card.

Intel discreet GPU... i740 comes to mind.

That's a better question for Intel, I'm just pulling this out of my ass. I figured that it was rumored that Intel may be working on a dual-ringbus system and figured that may allow "half-threading".

I like the core improvements however they need working 10nm in 2019. Yes I know they do produce a few low end low volume i3s on 10nm.

This is where nomenclature becomes an issue. Are we talking about CPUs or GPUs now? I need my intel GTX 1060 for massive FPS right?

lol, naming conventions are HARDDD

Is this the end of the lakes?
New µarch, new naming scheme?

We've been waiting for 'Sunny Core' for what, three years now- Skylake was supposed to be the 'tock', with one release on 10nm. Instead we saw some serious refinement that pushed it to >5.0GHz on eight cores- which isn't so bad.

They have to put a positive spin on their massive amount of failings and security holes somehow.
