    I don't understand the designation of certain chips as i3, i5, i7, i9 on mobile recently. At least on desktop you can immediately identify how many cores and threads they have (outside of HEDT). It seems so arbitrary on mobile now. Reply

    It's always been a lot more arbitrary on mobile with significant spec differences at each branding level depending on the TDP. Reply

    Absence of Z390 is interesting, many were expecting that alongside the H/Q/B PCHs. Reply

    they really ought to come up with a different name. this one is a mashup of ancient IBM Big Iron. not, I'd wager, the image they seek. Reply

    What is the target market for the new T-series chips? It's the same price as the chip with iGPU and the lower TDP comes at the cost of lower clock and still no overclocking. Reply

    OEM SFF boxes, like the Dell Optiplex Micro series. Reply

    i9. Mobile. 6 core with no HT.

    Intel ... the i9 branding already is a tortured SKU name. Anything i9 should be auto-badass awesome insaneballs SKU.

    Instead, we get the insult that i9 is not only brought back for ANY SKU, but a mobile SKU. Which is already lying BS marketing SKU (hey, a mobile i7 is actually 2 real cores + HT which in desktop land is a low end i3 but who cares! marketing!).

    While a mobile coffee lake native 6 core with no HT WOULD have been impressive (assuming no tard low base speed) as a very high i5 or i7 mobile... resurrecting the tortured i9 branding with anything less than 12 cores (of any dam*** sort) is insulting.

    FU intel. And FU to all the folks who gobble this up at a premium cause 9 > 7 in mobile land which enables Intel Marketing to justify this ****

    I just have to add, the cynicism in this article from Ian is amazing. That's no insult or judgement - just "holy moly, it's so bad even finally it broke through."

    I don't want to face the reality that PC hardware doesn't mean anything to the average (mass market - quantity) buyer when purchasing their next disposable facebook terminal....

    I don't. .. . .. ... .. *cry*

    It's so bad even AT is kicking Intel to the curb :). Reply
