Previous roadmaps pointed to a 2016/2017 release of Intel's Cannonlake, the 10nm shrink of the Skylake platform. New information puts this in doubt though, it's now rumored that Intel has put the Cannonlake "tick" on hold indefinitely and is instead planning to release a 14nm Kaby Lake platform.
While these are just rumors from now, if they're accurate it may be a drastic departure from the Tick-Tock model the chip giant has been trying to follow for nearly a decade now. Every tock designates a new processor architecture and every tick represents a shrink to a smaller process node of that architecture.
If it's true, it appears Intel may have greater difficulty with its 10nm process than expected. Cannonlake and the 10nm process have been delayed several times as it's getting harder and harder to shrink chips ever smaller.
Little is yet known about Kaby Lake. It will be a 14nm process, but whether it will take the place of a Tick on Intel's roadmap or a Tock remains to be seen. Kaby Lake processors are expected to contain the standard dual and quad core offerings. There will be five lines of processors, Kaby Lake Y, U, H, and two S lines.
The desktop offerings, the S line, will utilize the same socket as the current Skylake processors, the LGA1151, with simple drop-in replacement support. Design power will be between 4.5 watts and 91 watts.
