Chipmaker Intel has confirmed that its 10nm ‘Cannon Lake’ architecture will show up in PCs before the end of the year.

Intel had originally planned to introduce the first family of 10nm processors sometime in late 2016. However, technical challenges encountered in shrinking transistors to ever smaller scales led to the launch being delayed until 2017.

At CES in Las Vegas, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich confirmed that the Kaby Lake successor was still on track for a release this year and showed off the first 2-in-1 PC based on the 10nm architecture.

Krzanich was keen to point out that Moore’s Law is alive and well, and that despite marking the firm’s first change in process size since 2014’s Broadwell chips, Cannon Lake is proof of this.
