Cannonlake (formerly Skymont) is Intel's codename for the 10-nanometer die shrink of the Coffee Lake microarchitecture. As a die shrink, Cannonlake is a new process in Intel's "Process-Architecture-Optimization" execution plan as the next step in semiconductor fabrication.[3]

Cannonlake was initially expected to be released in 2016, but the release was pushed back to 2018.[4] Intel demonstrated a laptop with an unknown Cannonlake CPU at CES 2017[5][6] and announced that Cannonlake based products will be available in 2018 at the earliest.[7] Before Cannonlake's launch, Intel launched another 14 nm process refinement with the codename Coffee Lake.

The successor of Cannonlake microarchitecture will be Ice Lake, which will represent the architecture phase in the Intel Process-Architecture-Optimization Model.[8][9]
