Next next 22nm Atom is Silvermont

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Replaces 32nm Cedar Trail in 2013
Intel's Cedar Trail platform is powered by Cedar View mobile and desktop CPUs and the group name for the architecture is Saltwell. This is what Intel recently shared with its investors.

As we already said on several occasions, Cedar Trail Atoms are coming in Q4 2011 and they should last the whole 2012. The plan is to replace them with Silvermont 22nm Atoms in 2013 and you can expect better integration, faster cores and faster graphics. Only one year after that the next, next, next generation Atom comes in 14nm process with the codename Airmont. The year 2014 looks quite distant from now, and Airmont will have a tough job to fight against future generation of ARM architecture, beyond ARM 15.

By this time there should be many tablets and phones with quad-core CPUs inside, even though that might look like overkill from this point. Intel doesn’t plan to give up and after Ivy Bridge 22nm real man CPU for desktop, notebooks and server comes the Haswell new 22nm architecture that should debut in 2H 2012 and last the whole 2013 and in 2014 will get shrink to 14nm.

You can check out some nice slides and additional details here.

Are you honestly saying you think Ivy Bridge will come out 1H 2012 and Haswell will be out in 2H 2012?

Ivy Bridge won't be out 1H 2012, it will be more the end of summer, the six core Sandy Bridges are yet to be released, they'll be discontinued before they are released if Ivy Bridge is released any earlier

(I meant end of summer 2012)

The end of ARM begins.

My thoughts exactly, LGA-2011 is going to have to be something very very special if its not going to look like a complete waste of money when IB is released a few months later as with 22nm die shrink, core enhancements and quicksync 2.0 its going to be fast with a capital F!

Where as LGA-2011 just looks like sandy bridge with a bit more cache and some extra cores.
