Whiskey Lake is the code name of a processor microarchitecture from chip manufacturer Intel that was published at the end of April 2018. It represents the fourth optimization step of the 14 nm production process after Coffee Lake . It was presented in the second half of 2018 to bridge Intel's renewed delays in the 10 nm process.
In the third quarter, three notebook processors will appear, the only innovations of which can be found in the integrated peripherals:
- a USB 3.1 Gen2 controller and a Thunderbolt 3 port
The Whiskey Lake processors otherwise correspond to processors from the Kaby Lake Refresh, the actual micro-architecture still corresponds to the Skylake micro-architecture. According to Intel, Kaby Lake Refresh and Coffee Lake are manufactured in the so-called 14 nm ++ manufacturing process. Because of the expanded periphery, a new FC-BGA1528 solder base is used, which requires new motherboards.
