We're going to see it on desktop in the future, too. As the tech gets cheaper it'll be "easier" to place on die or sell it in discreet card form much like an NVME if not, a PCIe card. Next decade is gonna be a wild ride provided humanity doesn't self destruct.CVML is almost assuredly Computer Vision / Machine Learning, so I would think so.
I've long held to the belief that AMD has taken a little while longer this cycle to deliver their next-gen laptop APUs around the same time as client-desktop and not face a nearly 8 month delay. 12-18 months cadence is an awful long time if you take the full 18 months for a desktop iteration.
We'll see in the coming months. If Zen 3 is available same day as announcement, then I'll say laptop APUs in January to early March. If it's around Christmas, which I 100% doubt they could pull off, then that will be interesting. At the same time, I don't believe the BS Intel reps are peddling. I do not foresee Intel shipping mass volume until 2Q21 for TGL. They'll also be delivering RKL 1-2Q21.
Should be intresting if the rumors are true. 8 cores, and rumors of ITB operating at 5.1-5.2 all core with single core boost hitting 5.5 Ghz. Should be a nice toasty chip even. If Zen 3 closes or just blows by Intel in gaming, RKL may very well take back the crown. And due to surge in demand, I can't imagine AMD damaging Intel too much where gamers are concerned as most with the cash are on CML and sporting the high end i9s.
Edit: I'll be blown away if AMD make Zen 3 available same day as well as RDNA2. It'll take a few weeks for AIB partners for NVidia to fix the mess they've all made including NVidia. If AMD's launch is nearly bug free (LOL!) then they may very well see major success in 4Q20-1Q21. And if Milan launches in that time, the mere fervent discussion may very well push their stock price above $100/share if not more. TGL being lake or still in low volume production, and RKL being a low volume part, too, or delayed will push Intel's share price down even further at both quarterly reports. 8 cores is 'easier' to manufacture than 10 cores, but the high clocks will still reduce yields. High end parts may be on short supply while mid range should be in over supply, IMO. I hope they ditch the i9 label for 11th gen though. It'll be stupid of them not to.
Intel: Hold my beer!
