Why the Heck Is Intel Struggling to Make Smaller, Faster CPUs?

It looks like Intel has got some issues with its next generation of CPUs.

Recently during an earnings call, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich admitted that Intel would be delaying the highly anticipated Cannon Lake processor until 2019.

The delay means Intel’s CPUs won’t see a very large jump in speed or power efficiency any time soon.

Instead, we’ll be getting the just-announced Whiskey Lake, a new CPU architecture as well as a body of booze I’m sure more than one CPU designer at Intel would like to leap into.

We don’t have many details on Whiskey Lake as of yet.

Its existence was first reported by Motley Fool back in December 2017, and Krzanich yesterday largely confirmed that initial report.
