If physically imposing 7nm chips aren't your thing, Intel did present their keynote yesterday which partially focused on their upcoming 10nm chips but once again included a refresh of your Coffee. As far as actual products go, they announced a half dozen chips with a new suffix , i9-9900KF, i7-9700KF, i5-9600KF, i5-9400, i5-9400F and i3-9350KF. The K still indicates the chip can be overclocked while the F indicates a lack of a working GPU on the die.
Ars Technica also posted what they could glean about Project Athena, Intel's new proposed standard for laptops, simlar to the highly successful and not at all self contradictory Ultrabook standard from years back.
"This year's presentation was very different. The company's 10nm process is finally due to achieve volume production this year, and late last year the company told us that 10nm was bringing with it a new architecture named Sunny Cove, a new, much faster GPU, and new manufacturing techniques with 3D die stacking."
