Intel’s 9th generation re-branding of its “Skylake-X Refresh” HEDT processors could have a rather short lifespan in the company’s product-stack of just three quarters. Intel is planning to launch its next HEDT platform, codenamed “Glacier Falls,” which succeeds the current “Basin Falls Refresh.” “Glacier Falls” could launch around late-Q2/early-Q3, with unveils slated for Computex 2019 (June). These details are part of a slide leak from an internal presentation from motherboard manufacturer GIGABYTE.

The slide revealing “Glacier Falls” also mentions two new mainstream-desktop platform chipsets, the B365 Express and the H310C Express. There is no information on what sets these apart from the current B360 and H310, respectively. We predict their entry is necessitated by stronger CPU VRM requirements to support 9th generation Core 6-core and 8-core processor SKUs that are known to pull up to 140 Watts of power (unrelated to TDP, which is calculated on the basis of nominal clock speed and not Turbo Boost). There’s also a faint possibility of Intel giving the B365 CPU overclocking support to compete with the value proposition of AMD’s B450.
