We already knew Intel’s follow up to the Gemini Lake line of cheap, low-power Celeron and Pentium processors would probably be code-named Elkhart Lake and that the new chips could pack way more performance, possibly by combining high-performance “Sunny Cove” CPU cores, lower-power “Tremont” cores, and Intel Gen11 graphics.
Now, if a leaked product roadmap from electronics company Mitac is accurate, we also know one more thing — we’ll have to wait a little while for those chips to hit the market. They’re not expected to launch until the first quarter of 2020.
Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.
