Processors, graphics cards and other products are often used to test on the Linux platform, so Linux kernel source is often the treasure of exposure new products.
In the x86 branch of the latest source code for the Linux v5.2 kernel, several Ice Lake platform processors have appeared, including Ice Lake-X, Ice Lake Xeon D, Ice Lake Desktop, and Ice Lake Mobile.
At this year's Taipei Computer Show, Intel said that Ice Lake (10th generation Core) has been shipped on a large scale. But in fact, these products are only low-voltage products for mobile notebook platforms, which is Ice Lake Mobile above. As for the mobile 45W standard pressure (6 core +), desktop 65/95W or even the fever platform (Ice Lake-X), Xeon D, etc., you need to wait until next year.
However, from the Linux test point of view, Intel seems to delay the pace of the desktop only in terms of deployment capacity. The functional design, hard and soft verification of these products are consistent with the pace of the mobile platform.
In addition, let's take a step back, Intel's 10nm is "grinding little goblin", but it is still worth waiting for. Technical indicators,Intel's 10nm process density (100.76Mtr/mm2), gate size (54x44nm, the smaller the better), SRAM area (0.0312 & mu; m2) Almost all lead the first generation of TSMC 7nm.
