Intel to release "KF" and "F" variants of 9th Gen processors

What does the 'F' mean?



Read more about Intel's rumoured KF and F series processors.

F = Failed, ie according to the article maybe using silicon that was considered useless

And KF = KiloFailed, so even more trash

I have a feeling these are something to do with outsourced silicon. "finfet" maybe?

So my knowledge on silicon and the like is lacking so I'm curious.

If these do turn out to be k chips that lack the iGPU could this mean they run cooler and are potentially better overclockers because there is one less thing the chip is having to run?

I know what it means.

Some one asked the Intel engineers what to do about Ryzen and he replied "F***ed if I know"

No. The chips with GPU features, are able to turn it of when not in use - so there would be no difference. At least as far as I have read today elsewhere, because I thought the same thing :-)

Well if they have fewer features they should be cheaper.


Though I'd imagine people aren't willing to pay much for the privilege of having iGPU so chances are we might see a shift towards GPUless CPUs at current prices and chips with iGPU going up...

If it is a k chip without an igpu then the complexity of the silicon goes down and has a smaller footprint. This should lead towards much higher yields as you can fit more chips per wafer and are likely to have more be viable.
