The main thing I am looking for from Icelake is a major change in uarch. Intel needs to outgrow Core. Apple's chip developments show this already. And no I don't think it's x86 legacy "holding back" Intel except maybe at the very low end. What they need to do is stop leaning exclusively on process advantage. They need to beat Apple and the ARMy with superior design.
Music to my ears! It is time for a uarch change and this is something I'll be excitingly following.
