AnandTech picked up news that Intel's OEM partners will receive the first 14nm Comet Lake-U processor shipments on November 14. This low-power version of Comet Lake has a 15W TDP and will be on the market at the same time as the 10nm Ice Lake parts. Presumably, the 14nm Comet Lake-U will be aimed at cheaper systems.
This is an interesting development, because this means that Intel is likely to have two different U-series CPU lines in the market at the same time: the Ice Lake 9W-28W parts announced last week, presumably for the premium and high-end designs, and Comet Lake at 15W for the more budget oriented platforms. Given the rumors regarding Intel’s 10nm yields, and the known issues around the supply of Intel’s 14nm, this could be a way of bridging the gap between the high-cost and low-cost systems.
