Intel finally got all its ends in a row and announced that 10nm CPUs will be ready to launch at Holiday 2019. The news broke through Intel's announcement of record revenues for the second quarter of 2018, confirming investors like 10nm the factory is back on track.
The production problems for Intel and 10nm node have been well documented, which meant that AMD potentially ran Intel into the 7nm process before Intel could get 10nm to market. After a number of delays, Intel is now focusing on launching its 10nm CPUs in the second half of 2019. More specifically, Holiday 2019 is the expected launch window.
In addition to the launch of 10nm in 2019, Intel also made it clear that it has yet another generation of 14nm processors to start. These are the last 14nm chips from Intel, so you may want to wait until Q4 2019 for 10nm if you start thinking about an upgrade.
Of course, we expect an Intel 9th Gen announcement some day now. Almost the full range of CPUs has now leaked and any sign that points to HyperThreading is now exclusive to top-end Core i9 processors.
