So I've been looking forward to upgrading to a desktop 10nm CPU, but recently I read somewhere that the Cannonlake will only offer low-power CPUs for laptops and mobile devices - no desktop counterparts with higher TDPs. Is that true? Will we really have to wait until Icelake at the end of 2018 before we can get a high-power desktop 10nm CPU?

See www.pcworld.idg.com.au/article/616996/in...slip-into-next-year/

"The first Cannonlake chips will be targeted at low-power laptops and 2-in-1s. PC makers typically need time to test the chips in laptops, so availability of the chips in mainstream PCs may drag into 2018."

"Cannonlake could replace low-power Core M/Y Kaby Lake chips, which are targeted at lightweight laptops and 2-in-1s."

And en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannonlake says BGA 1151

And en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_grid_array says they are soldered.
