According to Taha Khalifa, the general manager for Intel in the Middle East and North Africa region, the company plans to launch its 10nm chips in early 2017. The first batch of 10nm processors, which will be code named Cannonlake and are the "Tick" in Intel’s "Tick Tock" cadence, are expected to offer SoC interconnect improvements such as shared coherent physical memory addresses and a more capable set of heterogeneous functionality. The 10nm chips will initially be integrated into tablet offerings and mobile devices, allowing these products to take on slimmer, lighter, and more elegant designs, all while using energy more efficiently. Mainstream and high performance 10nm chips will launch sometime afterwards, catering to other markets and consumers.

Time will tell if Intel is able to follow its current projection of launching 10nm chips in 2017, as Moore’s law continues to be difficult for semiconductor companies to keep up with.
