Cannon Lake and their 10nm process have proven a serious problem for Intel these past few years. It was in 2016 that they originally announced Cannon Lake would be delayed a year, which was then corrected to 2018. Barely a week ago we heard from Brain Krzanich that 2018 was too optimistic a date, and the 2016 CPU is now scheduled for some time in 2019.
Along with the Cannon Lake delay, DigiTimes also reports that the supply of the 14nm H310 chipset has completely dried up and we may not see more for a month or so, with July being the latest expected date. This means the only low teir Intel motherboard available for system builders, both professional and home, is the B360.
The next quarter's financials for both AMD and Intel should be very interesting.
"Intel initially planned to launch 10nm Cannon Lake CPUs in July 2018, but its CEO Brain Krzanich unexpectedly disclosed at a meeting with financial analysts in late April that volume production of 10nm chips will be moving from the second half of 2018 into 2019 as it will take time to improve yield rates."
