The following is not meant to you in particular but to anyone who has asked what I made bold in the quote. I chose to make the reply stand out so that's easy to find for anyone else curious about this so it's not an offenseSo this is delayed from the August release?
There is NO delay. CFL-S will very likely get an October hard launch. CFL was brought forward from 2018, meaning that every date before that is still a quicker launch than originally planned. The August date came from an Intel slide which now looks to be the announcement/paper launch date, WE, the people of earth, suspected an August hard launch; nothing was said or leaked by Intel itself. I cannot make it any clearer than this, and one doing its own bit of research would have led to the exact same conclusion laid out above.
Wishing it was different, I have to admit you're probably right :/ It also makes sense from a developing standpoint since they'll need a few years designing it and although they have started (these things start quite a few years before we even hear about it), they are still adding more people to the research, as per Intel's job listings.I doubt EMIB will debut with Ice Lake. It'll arrive with the 7nm gen, IMHO.
