    Interesting that this isn't listed on the CES website. I only found it by looking for CES updates here....
  • ikjadoon - Monday, January 7, 2019 - link

    Thanks for this blog format, Anandtech. I much prefer these to livestreams.

    Mobile is super-hot at Intel (one release per quarter):

    Kaby Lake Refresh (i5-8250U) in Q3 2017
    Kaby Lake G (i5-8305G) in Q1 2018
    Cannon Lake (lol, i3-8121U) in Q2 2018
    Coffee Lake (i5-8259U) in Q2 2018 (only 28W+)
    Whiskey Lake (i5-8265U) in Q3 2018
    Ice Lake (i5-9xxxU) in Q2 2019

    It's a refresh per quarter, though including the 28W+ Coffee Lake launch & the EMIB Vega chips.
  • Eris_Floralia - Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - link

    The 9xxxU will be CML-U not the ICL-U.
  • Tod Keeling - Wednesday, September 9, 2020 - link

    Attending Intel CES 2019 keynote provided me with really good info about their future planning. Gregory Bryant and Nevin Shenoy presented this whole conference. They explained things in a very curious way. One of my students submitted an essay on this topic after reading reviews on https://britishessays.net/ website edubirdie because it shares the honest and real reviews.

    Oh very great but I have some questions about this post. So you can reply to me my question. Gustavo Woltmann
