The Intel Glacier Falls platform will be presented at Computex
The life of the renamed Intel HEDT 9th Generation (Skylake-X Refresh) processor can be quite short – just three quarters. It is alleged that Intel is planning to release the next HEDT codec named Glacier Falls, which will change the current Basin Falls Refresh. Announcement of Glacier Falls can take place at the Computex 2019 in June, and products will appear on the market at the end of the second quarter or the beginning of the third quarter of the next year.
The source of this information was the Gigabyte internal presentation. On the Glacier Falls slide, with the edited version we already introduced to you, also mention two new desktop platform chipsets – the B365 Express and the H310C Express. It is unknown how they differ from current B360 and H310 chipsets, respectively. Our colleagues suggest that their appearance is due to the need to manufacture motherboards with more powerful subsystems that can meet the requirements of the 6th and 8-core Core 9-generation processors, which are known to need up to 140 watts of power. Experts specify that it’s not about the TDP parameter, which is calculated based on the nominal frequency without the Turbo Boost. There is also a small probability that Intel will provide the B365 with support for overclocking the processor.
