    Phoronix: Linux Begins Preparing For Intel's New "Lightning Mountain" SoC

    Linux kernel development activity has shown light on a new Intel SoC we haven't anything about to date... Lightning Mountain...

    It would be cool if Intel made a Raspberry Pi like baby NUC powered by an Atom.

      Take a look at the Atomic Pi:

        "network processor" does this mean it can be accessed from outside without using Intel ME? Im pretty sure NSA will like this new feature

          Are their 10nm yields really so bad that they can't even make a low-clocked Atom?

            There's also been some activity on the eMMC PHY. I really wonder what type of chip this will be.

            Appart from the obvious (Intel fabs are a mess), what indication do we have that this chip will be 14nm and not 10nm? I mean, we know it's probably going to be 14nm, but I haven't seen any confirmation in the talks.

                Is this 14 nm +++++ now? How many plusses are they on at this point? Tick Tock Tock Tock Tock Tock... By the time intel can do 10 nm in volume, AMD will be moving to 5 nm.

                  Because Airmont specifically refers to the 14nm shrink of the Silvermont Atom.

                  I bet you this goes into something like their next generation NICs. Their current network cards are all based on the ARM ISA. Airmont is cheap and low power enough that they had a version for the Maker communities. I think a version might be inside their LTE modem, XMM 7560 as well.

                  Intel products not using the x86 ISA:
                  -SSD controllers
                  -Network controllers
                  -Chipsets for desktops and laptops
                  -Chips for routers
                  -FPGAs
                  -WiFi cards
                  -RAID controllers

                  Airmont! That's the first Atom based on 14nm. It came out in 2014. They are reusing the core for a future product. Many of the products mentioned above use 28nm, or even older 40nm technologies BTW. For some products even 65nm or 90nm is overkill.
