Intel has been using their "Tick-Tock" processor development methodology for quite a while now. A "tick" would represent a new node and a "tock" would represent a new architecture. The latest true "tick-tock" that we saw was Ivy Bridge to Haswell, where Ivy Bridge was the "tick" down to 22nm and the "tock" was Haswell. Well it loos like Intel is moving away from this "Tick-Tock" release schedule and is moving towards a strategy that will leverage a single process node during a 3-year cadence.
