Intel has announced that it will launch its 9th generation ‘Coffee Lake’ Core CPUs for mainstream and high-performance laptops in the second quarter of this year.
The teaser was part of Intel’s presence at the ongoing Game Developers’ Conference in San Francisco, since Intel will be targeting gamers who want premium quality graphics at high framerates in the latest games, all while streaming simultaneously.
Intel has not yet disclosed specifics of the models to be launched, but says that the lineup will include new Core i9 mobile CPUs that will be used in top-end laptops for gaming and digital content creation.
The new CPU models promise more power for gaming and content creation within standard laptop form factors. As part of the platform refresh, 9th Gen Core CPUs will support Gigabit-class Wi-Fi 6 and Intel Optane Memory for low-latency communication and storage.
