Intel is still struggling to make 10-nanometer chips, but it might still have a few surprises up its 14nm sleeve.

report in WCCFTech confirms that the new chips will arrive on 1 October, alongside brand new Z390-series motherboards. According to the report, only the unlocked K series CPUs will launch on 1st, with the rest scheduled for later.

Unlocked models that could make the company’s eight-core performance more accessible. The highlight for many would be the Core i9-9900K, the first mainstream desktop Core i9 chip — you wouldn’t have to pay a fortune for an X-series or Extreme Edition CPU. It would tout a 3.6GHz base clock speed, but could boost to 4.7GHz with all eight cores (5GHz with one or two cores) and support up to 16 code threads.

On the mobile devices front, there’s not much news. Intel’s 8th gen mobile CPUs are still rolling out anyway, and until 10 nm arrives, there’s not much exciting that can happen on that front.

The 10 nm process refers to a manufacturing process where the smallest feature on a chip, like a CPU, is 10 nm wide. The smaller the process, the more efficient the feature, resulting in chips that consume less power and produce less heat.

In mobile devices, this means that your device won’t heat up as much and the battery life will be better. On desktops, where neither heat nor battery life is a major concern, this means that devices can run much faster.

While Intel is still on a 14 nm process, AMD is on 12 nm and is expected to hit 7 nm by next year. The chips that power smartphones, includes Apple’s A-series chips and Qualcomm’s high-end chips are already available on the 10 nm process.
