Intel Cannonlake CPU Comes With Eight Cores

For so long Intel has been using two and four core CPUs for a long time now, but an Intel LinkedIn profile indicates the upcoming Cannonlake CPU, which is built on 10nm technology, will take the next step and support four, six, and eight cores for mainstream CPUs.

But don’t think it’s coming soon, though: Intel CEO Brian Krzanich indicated this past summer that consumers can expect Kaby Lake in the second half of 2016, and Cannonlake in the second half of 2017.
