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."
