As you may know Intel is continually having problems with its 14nm production process, something that has been going on since 2018! And of course it's not helping in the war against AMD's popular Ryzen 3000.
So after the 10nm failure, Intel was forced to back up to 14nm… Which clearly did not go well, even after the $ 1 billion invested to power production lines.
Intel continues to have 14nm production line problems in 2019
That is, according to the latest information, the 14nm lines have fallen short of expectations again! It is therefore likely that many manufacturers will have to postpone launching several products until 2020.
Thus, it is very likely that the new 10th generation Intel Core mobile processors will be the first victims (Comet Lake). Products that should reach the market based on the 14nm +++ process, which in turn should reach frequencies never before reached, and therefore a very interesting level of performance.
Incidentally, according to the latest reports, Intel prefers to bet on the very mature 14nm process, which can now reach overwhelming frequencies. Instead of the new 10nm process which is still very green and which, despite bringing more CPI to the table, would probably fall short of the performance of the old production method.
In short, all that said, it is likely that the number of 'Intel Inside' notebooks will be very scarce in the holiday season of 2019. With the vast majority of models coming to the shelves in the first quarter of 2020.
