Intel Partially Reveals 8th/9th Gen, 10nm+ Process "Ice Lake" CPUs

It seems that AMD's aggressively priced Threadripper and EPYC CPUs have forced Intel to spill the beans early - very unusual for Intel - on what their 8th/9th Gen future CPUs may look like (coming in 2018 or 2019 possibly):

Basically, 8th Gen was supposed to be 10nm process "Cannon Lake" CPUs, which come right after "Kaby Lake" and "Coffee Lake" (these are 14nm+ and 14nm++ process CPUs).

But AMD's aggressive moves may have forced Intel to skip ahead to "Ice Lake" 10nm+ process CPUs, and its unclear whether Cannon Lake will even happen.

So it appears that tough competition from AMD payed off - we may get faster and more aggressively priced Intel multi-core CPUs as a result.

I was about to upgrade my system... This ain't making it easier to decide

Take comfort in the fact that rendering will always be PAINFULLY slow regardless of what CPU you pick.

But for rendering, isn't it time to start focusing on GPU? I.e. Redshift

It is a conspiracy theory that things like GPUs and Redshift actually exist.

I went to the local supermarket. They had never heard of a "GPU" or a "Redshift".

They had everything else - eggs, milk, cheese and beer - so they know what they are talking about.

They've been saying that for a few years now.
Some would say that its starting to turn around again slowly... but who knows.

I'm personally not sold on GPU rendering yet.
A good CPU is still the better investment IMHO, simply because you can do more with it.
Prices of good GPU with a nice amount of memory are also a bit ridiculous.
But I'd get a good GPU aswell in my workstation anyway.
