So its 2013 Silvermont (22nm, new architecture) ->2014 Airmont (14nm, die shrink) -> 2015 Goldmont (14nm, new architecture).
goldmont? didnt AT mention Airmont as the successor to Silvermont
knowing skylake is 2015, could goldmont come after airmont
although gold after silver sounds logical
Yay, next gen Atom code-name is public now!
I lurb codenames.
What's next? Platinumont?
Something about it just doesn't roll off the tongue like most other Intel codenames do.
It adds new instructions which are shared with Skylake- coming out at roughly the same time as it would make sense to me.
2013 - Silvermont (new uArch )
2014 - Airmont (shrink, hopefully some enhancements?)
2015 - Goldmont (new uArch)
Platinum, then Titanium, followed by Signature and ultimately "Black" if they are following the Marketing 101 handbook created by the credit-card industry
But...if Intel really wanted to be savvy and stick with Group 11 elements from the periodic table then they'd follow Goldmont with element 111 (Roentgenium, pronounced runt-GEN-ee-əm) and roll out codename Roentgeniumont. (rolls off the tongue like silk, don't it )
roentgen, now there is a word that's fallen out of use.
Roentgen discovered and named x-rays. But the science/medical communities called them roentgen rays in his honor.
What we call Radiology today was previously roentgenology.
