Cannonlake (CNL) (formerly Skymont) is a planned microarchitecture by Intel as a successor to Kaby Lake. Cannonlake is expected to be fabricated using a 10 nm process and is set to be introduced in the fourth quarter of 2017. Cannonlake is the "Process" microarchitecture as part of Intel's PAO model.

For mobile, Cannonlake is expected to be branded as 8th Generation Intel Core i3, Core i5. and Core i7 processors.

Process Technology

Cannonlake is manufactured on Intel's 10 nm process (P1274). Intel's 10 nm process is the first high-volume manufacturing process to employ Self-Aligned Quad Patterning (SAQP) (goes under the "Hyper-Scaling" marketing name). Intel's 10nm features a 0.0367 µm² SRAM bit cell.
