Intel Delays Cannonlake Chips

During Intel's latest earnings call, CEO Brian Krzanich announced that Intel is delaying its upcoming Cannonlake chips for six months.

To address the lack of chips in the pipeline, Intel said that it's going to release new "Kaby Lake" codenamed 14-nanometer chips based on the previous-gen Skylake architecture. Krzanich said that "we expect that this addition to the roadmap will deliver new features and improved performance, and pave the way for a smooth transition to 10-nanometer." Nevertheless, he admitted that Intel is now on a "tick-tock-tick" cycle rather than a "tick-tock" as before.
