Intel is in process of updating to it’s 10th generation CPU design built on state-of-art 14nm technologies

The new CPUs Intel unveiled this week—32 of them in total—range from $40 dual-core Celeron models destined for pokey library lookup stations to a $490 Core i9 behemoth with 10 cores, 20 processing threads, and a maximum frequency of 5.3GHz (on one core). They are part of the “Comet Lake-S” processor family, built on a refinement of the 14nm semiconductor fabrication process (technically, here dubbed “14nm++”) that Intel has used for some years.
