In February this year, Braswell platform ushered in the update again, and in addition to the new mobile version, but also for the first time to increase the desktop version. Now, Braswell platform and we can finally say goodbye, because we have ushered in a new generation of processor platform - Lake Apollo. Intel in Information Technology Summit (IDF2016) announced the next generation of high cost processor platform for the latest situation, a new generation of processor R & D code named Lake Apollo, plans to be listed in the second half of 2016.
Apollo lake is considered to be a cherry trail and Braswell platform product of the iteration, it will be based on 14nm process and manufacture, integrated Intel skylake also of significant nuclear; CPU architecture from the current airmont replacement to Goldmont, to match the new gen9 engine GPU, supports 4K display output, because GPU gen9 engine, the maximum output at the same time three monitors (plate itself contains).
According to previous exposure information, Lake Apollo supports eMMC 5 solid storage and Type-C USB interface. LAKE APOLLO also supports DDR3L (including ECC) as well as LPDDR4, where LPDDR4 is the highest to 3200MT/s; but Lake Apollo does not support LPDDR3.
Lake Apollo will provide more processing power and graphics performance, with longer battery life. Intel will be the first to provide reference design products for the application of the platform.
It is reported that new Apollo lake will be in the summer production, officially listed in the second half of the year, combo, traditional PC, tablet products through equipped with Apollo lake comprehensive performance has been improved, although he is still the 14nm process.
Two mixing equipment has become a new growth point, do not know the arrival of Lake Apollo, can make it more popular on the market.
According to IDC data show that last year, 2 in 1 notebook market grew by 2, the replacement of 1 in 40% of the cycle than the traditional PC in advance of the replacement of the traditional 8-12 months. Currently available on the market there are more than 2 100 in 1 notebooks, covering different designs, different sizes and different price.
In the past few months, PC camp ushered in HUAWEI, Samsung, Micromax, TCL, and many other new members. In addition, there are Apple's Pro iPad products, the current Apple launched the two models Pro iPad, respectively, 12.9 inches and 9.7 inches version. With the entry of a large number of non traditional PC vendors, with 2 in 1 notebook as the representative of the PC may usher in a round of outbreak.
Recently, foreign media exposure of the Intel 2016 processor roadmap, the road map display, skylake processor's successor, Kaby Lake in the third quarter of this year launched, while the use of 10nm process of cannon Lake processor in 2017 Q3 launch.
Lake Kaby processor will still use the 14nm manufacturing process, but the architecture has to upgrade, the upcoming 200 series chipset. As for the release of time, Intel road map shows the time is Q3 quarter of this year, but the first is for the mobile platform U/Y Core low power series, and last year's Skylake is released in August.
Intel's 10 nm continuous bouncing, according to the roadmap, the 10nm process of cannon lake will be released in the next quarter of Q3, and Intel before and a commitment to consistent. So, wait for 10nm students to be more patient.
