Intel at CES 2019: New 9th Gen processors, 5G laptops and 10 Nm 

Within the conferences presented at conference Electronics Show (CES 2019) has had its turn the Intel company that has presented the new that will offer users During this 2019, among the highlights we find the new processors to complete the 9th generation of chips, also during the presentation confirmed the arrival date of 10 Nm and presented some other technological devices.

New Intel Core Processors 

The Intel 9th generation family of processors was formed by the models 9900K, 9700K and 9600K, based on the 14 nm coffee Lake-Refresh architecture with frequencies up to 5 GHz. During the presentation of Intel at CES the brand announced new members of this generation also adding the i5-9400 to this series, along with five new processors without integrated graphics card: i3-9350KF, i5-9400F, i5-9600KF, i7-9700KF and I9-9900KF.

The “F” in this series indicates that they do not carry IGPU, while KF indicates that they do not carry IGPU and that they are overclockeables. The rest of the features remain the same, which was not clear yet is the price of these devices.

For its part, the model i5-9400 has 6 cores and 6 threads, base frequency of 2.9 GHz and Boost of 4.1 GHz, and a consumption of 65 watts.

Intel clarified that one of the reasons for launching chips without IGPU is to reduce the discards in the factory where the CPU is OK, but the IGPU presents problems, and it is the first time that the brand launches processors without graphics card.

Finally Intel announced that these chips will be available in the market for the month of February, while the 9th generation for laptops and the i5-9400 will be on the market for the second quarter of this year.

The 10 nm comes out in it CES

After a long time not mentioned, Intel took advantage of the showcase at CES 2019 to showcase its 10 nm Ice Lake architecture, which will increase the use of Artificial Intelligence (IA), improve the integrated graphics card going to the GEN11 with 1 TFLOP performance, Support for HDMI 2.0, and it will improve performance. In addition, he reported that these chips based on the Sunny Cove microarchitecture will arrive at the end of 2019.

The chipset for these new chips will incorporate Thunderbolt 3, Wi-Fi 6 and DL Boost series.

Project Athena

In addition Intel presented Project Athena, a laptop characterised by being much more complete. Among the improvements that these laptops will offer is a faster startup process, better performance, IA, longer battery life, compact and lightweight design, and 5G connection to have Internet anywhere.


On the other hand, Intel bets on Foveros 3d, its new hybrid architecture for stacking chips on graphics cards and processors that allow for greater performance in a small space. For that it presents its new project Lakefield, which has five different nuclei: four are Atom and one of them is Sunny core of 10 nm. The final device that equips it will be very compact, and can also be used on tablets.


Finally, Intel showed Nervana, a neuronal network in the form of a chip designed to accelerate the tasks related to data processing.
