A few weeks ago Intel confirmed via a teaser that it is holding an event on September 2 and will announce something “big.” The teaser didn’t go into specifics but it was presumed that Intel may talk about its much-awaited 11th-gen Tiger Lake CPUs at the said event. But now an event planner has been spotted on the company’s own investor relations site that makes it evident that Intel is indeed prepping up to talk more on its 10nm based Tiger Lake CPUs.
It looks like Intel inadvertently posted its plans on the site and some eagle-eyed users like @SteakisGood (Twitter) managed to spot it. Intel first introduced its 10nm-based processor back at the CES event in January this year and promised to bring more details.
At the time of announcing its Q2 2020 financial results, Intel revealed that its rollout plans for its 7n based CPUs have just been delayed and it is not going to bring them to the market until later 2022 or early 2023. Intel confirmed that it will continue its focus on 10nm-based CPUs for PCs rather. So, we may hear more about the chipmaker’s plans on the CPUs based on the existing foundry process.
Interestingly, there is one more event calendar that shows Intel has one more event to conduct and it is scheduled for August 13. The planner shows the event name that is “Updates from our Chief Architect, Raja Kaduri.” The highlights do not reflect what new things the chipmaker will announce but it is suspected to talk about its first discrete GPU, the DG1.
Come back to hear more about Intel’s plans on August 13 and September 2.
