Rumor: Intel Releasing Three Generations Of 10nm Processors

I am positive that "Icecake" is an error and is actually "Icelake"; the former sounds like something Google would use. The initial 10nm family, Cannonlake, is expected in 2017.

The third generation would be called Tigerlake and thus is indicative of a second tock in the tick-tick model. This year we will see Kaby lake based on 14nm, this is also an extra tock in the sequence. The tock basically means that Intel is not using a new production node with a smaller fabbed architecture yet sticks to the fabrication process.
