    I feel like its undeserving of the i9 designation. The mobile i7 normal power parts have always been 4C/8T, just like their desktop counterparts, so any i9 processors should really be at least 8C.

    Er, no. A quick look through various Thinkpads (thinkwiki.org) shows plenty of 2C/4T normal power CPUs:
    Sandy Bridge: i7-2620M
    Ivy Bridge: i7-3520M
    Haswell: i7-4600M

    Only the high-power HQ mobile i7's get 4c8t - normal for laptops is the U series ~15W parts

    Not sure if we've seen a plain X000 i3 before? All the recent ones seem to be X100 parts

    Ark would give you an even better idea

    Up to 4th Gen Core, mobile processors came in at least three different flavours, and as many as five or six in some generations. But primarily, there were U, M, and ?Q parts - U being the low voltage 15W parts, M being the standard ~35W parts, and ?Q being ~45W parts. U and M lines were both dual core with HT, ?Q parts only appeared as i7, and were quad core with HT.

    From fifth generation, Intel quietly dropped the M parts completely. So there were only U and ?Q parts; 15W dual core and 45W quad core. IN the sixth gen, they introduced i5 ?Q parts, which were quad core without HT. In the 8th Gen, they introduced 15W quad core U parts.

    OTOH this conversation is a bit moot, because the article flippin' says that the mobile i9 parts will be 6C/12T - which makes sense when they're listed as Coffee Lake rather than Kaby Lake R.

    That said, I'm more interested in the i7 8000H series, which are also Coffee Lake - wonder how they'll be distinguished from the i9s? Could just be clock speed, but I do wonder if we'll see those being 4C/8T but with much higher clocks than the Kaby R 'U' parts....

    An overclockable chip in a laptop? What could possible go wrong?
