Notes on Intel�’s Tick-Tock Model

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.

Notes on Intel�’s Tick-Tock Model

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.

Codename (Processor) Release Frequency Codename (Processor) Release Frequency
Clarkdale (i5) 2010 2.27GHz
Sandy Bridge (i7)
2011
3.4GHz
Ivy Bridge (i7) 2012 2.27GHz Haswell (i7) 2013 3.5GHz
Broadwell (i7) 2014 3.1GHz Skylake (i7) 2015 3.5GHz

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.
