How else would you get a Comet in your lake, if not from the Sky

Intel's new Comet Lake families of chips will be a update to the existing Skylake architecture and will share the same 14nm process node according to what The Inquirer have discovered from leaked documents.  On desktop parts they refer to 10+2 and 8+2 SKUs from which we can infer the presence of GT2 graphics, with a 5GHz part likely topping that line.  Notebook chips are expected to top out at six cores as are the ultra-low power models.   In theory we should see these arrive some time this year, contiguous to the release of Zen 2, though we lack hard dates on either release at this time.

"According to reports, Comet Lake-S will be based on the Skylake microarchitecture and will be created using Intel's now-ageing 14nm manufacturing process."

Are people really anticipating this that much? It is going to be a little bit higher clock at maybe more cores for a similar (high) price compared to previous generation intel. A few hundred MHz on core clock isn’t really that big of a deal these days. The extra cores can be though, and they aren’t going to compete on core count with Zen 2. I am waiting for Zen 2 to build a new machine. I hope that they have a 16-core variant available at launch. I am going to be tempted to get one for home and one for work. I am stuck on a 4-core Xeon at work and it takes forever to compile anything.

I have been a little disappointed in the analysis of Zen 2. I think I have a pretty good idea of what improvements AMD has made, but the enthusiast community doesn’t really seem to have put it all together yet. Perhaps I am missing the latest speculation. I am expecting some good reductions in latency compared to Zen 1.
