    It’s possible but highly unlikely, sorry to rain on your parade but yes a upgrade to next gen CPUs would be great but I highly doubt it will make much difference in overall performance.
    I hope I’m wrong.

    Not unless they were 8core chips

    I should ask for a discount because of the delays.

    I think most recent articles say 6 core with slight boost to single core speeds.

    And I've seen one article say that they'll be on GTX 1600 bases and RTX 2060 models to start in May.

    To be honest, even that wont make much of a difference. Just take a closer look at the 9700K/9900K, they get really hot.
    As long as cpus are still made in 14nm, I dont expect big performance improvements (in laptops).
    On Desktops, you might be able to push the cpus, using watercooling, but in laptops you just have limited cooling space.
    And there are just very few laptops that can cool down the 8750h, and throttle quite hard, let along an 8950hk or the 9xxx series.

    Imo, I just noted that 8-core chips were available. It's up to the manufacturer how they use that tech to get to fit into the space they have available. As far as raw bleeding edge performance get a desktop. It's a dead end conversation and frankly I wasn't insinuating there would be huge perf gains in laptops.

    Thinking about that there might be a hard limit to which gpu the 9 series could be paired with and still be viable.

    Update to shipping is now the middle of May for mine.

    Side note I've seen other brands using this Intel chipset revision their specifications upwards

    Will the Y740 also be able to handle 2TB drives and 64GB memory.

    Latter being massive overkill. But just wondering if anyone has a better idea how this kinda stuff works.
