At least week's Intel Experience Canada 2019 Event, Intel Canada Country Manager Denis Gaudreault revealed that Intel's first 10nm desktop processors will hit the market by early 2020. No specifics were mentioned but this is the first time an Intel executive narrowed down a launch date for 10nm desktop parts. Previously, there were rumors that Intel cancelled its 10nm desktop plans.

The chip giant denied this, but there are still rumors that 10nm desktop parts may be limited to niche products like the NUC. We'll have to wait and see, but for now we still think that the bulk of Intel's desktop portfolio will remain on 14nm until the arrival of 7nm.
Intel Canada Country Manager Denis Gaudreault revealed the news to the publication during the Intel Experience Canada 2019 event Oct. 29.
“As I said this morning, we learned of the 10th-gen for mobile [processors], which is based on 10nm. So early next year, that’s where the desktop version of that will come.”

Gaudreault didn’t provide specifics aside from confirming 10nm desktop parts.
