Intel CES Keynote 2019: Six New 9th Generation Processors Plus First Glimpse Of 10nm Sunny Cove

From Forbes: Intel has announced it will be launching a total of six new 9th generation CPUs to the Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 and also Core i9 ranges, adding to the existing Core i5-9600K, Core i7-9700K and Core i9-9900K CPUs it launched back in 2018.

Most are expected and have been listed on and Intel's own Ark specifications database, such as the Core i5-9400, however, recent rumors have pointed at KF-versions of the existing CPUs, possibly lacking integrated graphics, such as a Core i9-9900KF.

The benefits of this could be lower temperatures as well as lower power consumption and possibly even lower prices, but so far we haven't given any extra details at the CES show in Las Vegas so we'll have to wait and see just what they'll be. Other rumors have touched on a 10-core mainstream CPU, but given the KF model numbers are in the wild already, they seem more likely.

Intel also revealed the first implementation of its 10nm Sunny Cove architecture, which will offer integrated Thunderbolt and WiFi 6 as well as its Faveros 3D technology that will also be coming to desktop products in future. The technology allows Intel to stack various parts that make up a CPU along with using a chiplet design to mix and match different chips with a new client platform code-named Lakefield, which features a hybrid CPU architecture with Intel’s Foveros 3D packaging technology.
