Leaked Fujitsu document reveals new 35 W T-series and 65 W F-series CPUs in the Intel 9th gen lineup
Japanese PC maker Fujitsu has revealed the entire list of processors in the Intel 9th generation Coffee Lake Refresh lineup, including new 35 W 'T' and iGPU-less 'F' series CPUs, in its motherboard compatibility document. While we've already known about some processors, we are getting to know about more SKUs in this list.
The list indicates new T-series processors such as the Core i9-9900T, Core i7-9700T, Core i5-9600T, Core i5-9400T, Core i3-9300T, Core i3-9100T, Pentium Gold G5600T, Pentium Gold G5420T, and the Celeron G4930T. All these T-series CPUs have a rated TDP of 35 W. The Core i9, Core i7, and Core i5 series support DDR4-2666 RAM while the Core i3, Pentium, and Celeron series support DDR4-2400 RAM. Given the low TDP values, these processors should find places in systems with low cooling headroom.
Intel announced new F and KF series processors at CES 2019, which are devoid of the UHD Graphics 630 component. In addition to the Core i5-9400, Core i5-9400F, Core i5-9600KF, and Core i3-9350KF that were announced at CES, we are now seeing the Core i5-9500F, Core i5-9600F, and Core i3-9100F SKUs. The Core i3-9100F was recently spotted in a leaked benchmark with a possible Turbo Boost configuration that is normally unusual for this SKU.
We also get to see new Xeon E CPUs including the 8-core Xeon E-2288G and the Xeon E-2278G, and a couple of undefined Xeons with 4-core and 6-core configurations.
The availability of these CPUs is still not known as they have not been made official yet. Intel has run into a shortage of 14nm CPUs and that could be the reason why it is willing to ship CPU dies with defective iGPUs targeted at gamers who would invariably use a discrete GPU. This should result in improved binning and yields. Apart from these new desktop SKUs, we also expect to see new 45 W H-series CPUs for laptops sometime by Computex 2019.
