As mentioned, these aren't "clean sheet" designs. Moreover, SoC vs IP development works on different time tables.But you should know that iterative designs are generally 2-3 years from paper to production, while clean sheet designs are more like 5 years?
I already described the timetable. In 2016, those two projects were Ice Lake and Broxton. And the Skylake derivatives, if you want to include those.Do you think Intel only has one project in the works at any given time?
Tick tock was already dead by this point. Again, in addition to Broxton (which you shouldn't leave off), Cannonlake and Ice Lake development stretched well beyond what it should have. Ice Lake is what? D step? E step?In order to meet its previous iterative release schedule (tick tock), Intel would have to have started:
There may once have been a slide with the Tiger Lake name in 2015, but in terms of actual execution, a name on a roadmap is nothing.
You don't delay a product a full generation for a little more performance from the process. Tiger Lake IPs with Ice Lake clocks/process would have been a strictly better product than Ice Lake.Not if Intel couldn't hit the clock/voltage targets they wanted with 10nm+.
