The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

9 May 2019 -- Intel’s 10-nanometer node has been pushed back repeatedly, from 2015 to the 2019 holiday season. Now, Intel has committee to offer 7-nanometer microprocessors by 2021.

10-nanometer chips like the Core i3-8121 are already available. We don’t know how wide the 10-nanometer release will be (a recent leak implied 10-nanometer chips would be confined to mobile, with no Intel desktop chips released on that node through 2020).

The company announced Wednesday it would begin shipments of the next-generation Ice Lake microprocessors in June, promising “approximately 3 times faster wireless speeds, 2 times faster video transcode speeds, 2 times faster graphics performance, and 2.5 to 3 times faster artificial intelligence (AI) performance over previous generation products.”
