An Intel Cannon Lake with Multi-Chip design appears that never saw the light

Today we come across an unknown processor of the series Intel Cannon Lake-Y (8th Gen Intel Core) for laptops. The most striking thing about this processor is that it premiered a Multi-Chip design with a total of three die.

Under a 10nm manufacturing process, this processor never officially saw the light of day, and can now be seen thanks to the leaker. @YuuKi_AnScataloging it as a unit of “special sample” specially designed for internal use. Since it was never officially announced, let alone reached users, we can deduce that it is a used processor for internal testing linked to the future desEsports Extrasof CPUs with chiplet / Multi-Chip desEsports Extrasof the company.

Intel Cannon Lake-Y 10nm Multichip

Entering context, the family of CPUs Intel Cannon Lake It was, perhaps, the company’s worst recent launch, since it all started with serious launch problems linked to the fact that it was the company’s most advanced manufacturing process, the 10nm.

Added to this were performance issues and by the time everything was “fixed” and they hit the market they were already “obsolete” so it also has the “achievement” of being the microarchitecture which had the shortest useful life in the marketbecause when they really got over the problems, the company quickly released its processors Ice Lake for desktop, and Tiger Lake for laptops. It’s more, Intel discontinued these processors 2 years after their releasehence the “achievement”.

Unlike the rest of the CPUs, this Intel Cannon Lake offered an additional chip

What you really see in the image, according to the Asian portal Angstronomics, is a chiplet processor with a 3-chip desEsports Extrasand a BGA1392 package with a size of 28 x 16.5 mm. Of these chips, one belongs to the CPU’s own die / tile, to a 10nm manufacturing process, with a size of 70.52mm2. On the other hand we have the PCH (Platform Controller Hub) tile, with measurements of 46.17 mm2 and, finally, the unexpected guest is a tile McIVR with a size of 13.72 mm2.

The McIVR tile is short for “Multi-Chip Integrated Voltage Regulator“, that is, a chip in charge of regulating the voltage between the two chips. Despite this, the company continued to use over the years the FIVR (Intel Integrated Voltage Regulator), while Raptor Lake would leap forward with the DLVR (Digital Linear Voltage Regulator). According to reports, this move could reduce CPU consumption by up to 25%.

In short, this Cannon Lake-Y is nothing more than a processor for internal tests which makes it clear that Intel had been thinking about CPUs with a chiplet desEsports Extrasfor quite some time, although it must be remembered that AMD was the first to bring this desEsports Extrasto the masses and, therefore, took a drastic turn in the market situation.
