However, at the time of writing, there’s no word on when these parts will be launched or even announced.
These processors are supposed to be Intel’s first octal-core chips fabbed on the 10nm node. Up until now, all of the company’s 10nm lineups are limited to quad-core parts, most likely due to limited yields, something that also had an effect on Ice Lake’s boost clocks.
At CES 2021, Intel announced its Tiger Lake-H “H35” processors for high-performance notebooks which are essentially the U-series chips on steroids, with their TDP increased to 45W:
