Information about the next low-power processor has been discovered through internal documentation from Intel. Codenamed Tremont, the new Intel ATOMs are expected to develop at 10 nm (as opposed to Ice Lake) and bring performance and power improvements to the company’s options for the integrated market.
The next Intel ATOM ‘Tremont’ kernel would be manufactured at 10 nm
The Tremont CPU architecture will thus replace Goldmont Plus, which continues to be manufactured in the 14 nm process. The new architecture is likely to receive some specific improvements in overall performance and the obvious improvement in consumption as it moves to a smaller manufacturing process. New instruction sets will also be added: CLWB, GFNI (SSE-based), ENCLV, split-blocking instruction set extensions, all extensions that will also be introduced into Ice Lake cores. Other functions introduced specifically for Tremont, CLDEMOTE (direct storage and user standby instructions).
In the documentation, we can see that the dates for Ice Lake and Tremont are in TBD, so we don’t know the dates when we will be able to see these processors on the market. Ice Lake is expected to arrive during 2019 along with Tremont.
