Predecessor Skylake

"Cannonlake", the Intel's tick-tock 10 nm shrink of Skylake, is expected to be released in 2016.[1] Cannonlake was listed in development directly from Intel's job listing as early as 2013.[2] Further nodes are not clear although latest Intel development (Q3 2012) indicates 7 nm node may reach production around 2017, with 5 nm in 2019.[3]

In 2009 Intel's former CEO Paul S. Otellini has been quoted as saying that silicon is in its last decade as the base material of the CPU,[4] with replacement options such as Indium antimonide or optical computing.

Cannonlake will be used in conjunction with Intel 200 Series chipsets, also known as Union Point.[1]
