During Intel's annual investors day, Intel announced that their 8th Generation Cannonlake CPUs with have a 15%+ performance increase over Kaby Lake.
 
This means that Intel expects their move to Cannonlake to be much more significant than their move from Skylake to Kaby Lake, though at this time it is unknown if this will be due to clock speed improvements or architectural improvements over Skylake/Kaby Lake. 
 
Right now Cannonlake is expected to launch later this year or in early 2018, likely launching as a mobile-only part initially. Cannonlake was previously announced to be Intel's first 10nm part, though now it seems that Intel has opted to build this CPU on their existing 14nm manufacturing node. 
 
At this time, it seems like Intel are having difficulty manufacturing 10nm CPUs, causing this delay.

The release of this information leads to one question, are Intel scared of AMD's upcoming Ryzen CPU lineup? It is very uncharacteristic for Intel to speak about their next CPU architecture so soon after a new hardware launch, leading us to believe that Intel wants to try to detract from Ryzen's recent coverage with announcements of their own.

well they claim there that Kaby Lake has 15% boost over Skylake and we all know how that turned out. Will believe it when I see itQuote

Yeah it's like the ahole kid at the back of the class sticking up his hand and shouting "ME ME ME !".

I wouldn't even mind if they weren't tricking people either. It's impossible not to notice the 1 & 2 and then saying that it's basically 15% faster in one benchmark.

If Intel want to stop the rot they need to do it now. It's time to stop being so god damned precious with core counts and drop the prices.Quote

One will probably need a new motherboard too. It's just too much hassle for the performance gain. Quote

These chips are also 12-14 months away for the desktop, mehh. Reading the Ryzen bits and bobs over the last couple of days and with the attention seeking from Intel it's all looking like AMD is up to snuff in the desktop cpu space again.Quote
