Though Intel has scrapped the previous “Tick-Tock” CPU production model, it is still good to note how well it has gone through the years.
Intel’s “Tick-tock” design is not very visible to the layman’s eye. At first glance, it doesn’t seem very important. But if you look at the specs of the Intel® processor, this cannot be farther from the truth.
The Tick-Tock Model is simple: the Tick processor shows enhanced ability while the Tock processor is made with new technology. This would mean that each piece of technology would last longer in the market, and thus, the Intel® technology would stay in use for longer.
Here are some CPU models to use as examples of this model.
||Sandy Bridge (i7)
|Ivy Bridge (i7)
From here, Intel® takes on a “Process-Architecture-Optimization” model after the Skylake processor. Though the last model has been working well, we should expect that this new model should prove better nonetheless.
