Intel unveils 10th gen ‘Ice Lake’ Core processors including Core i3, i5 and i7 chips

By  | 

Intel has officially unveiled the latest version of its Core processors which have come to its 10th generation now. These latest processors from Intel are called ‘Ice Lake’ and have been designed for thin and light laptops. This will be the first time that Intel’s processors will be based on 10nm architecture.

The first batch of processors in Intel’s 10th gen Core lineup will be in Intel-U and Intel-Y series which are made for thin and light laptops. Although Intel has announced these processors, they will be available only by the 2019 US holiday season which is only by the end of this year.

These new processors from Intel promise improved CPU performance, better-integrated graphics thanks to the new Gen11 GPU architecture and also new AI acceleration capabilities named by Intel as Deep Learning Boost. However, the biggest addition to these new processors from Intel is Wi-Fi 6 which promises much better Wi-Fi signal reception compared to Wi-Fi 5.

The addition of Thunderbolt 3 controllers is also done by Intel in these processors. Intel also claims that its Iris GPU built into the processors will provide 4K 60fps HDR video playback as well as improved gaming and pro content creation performance.

Another interesting factor is that the new processors also support LPDDR4 RAM for the first time. Along with that, laptops can have four Thunderbolt 3 ports as well. Intel says that more than 35 laptops from different manufacturers will be available by the end of this year with these processors. We might also see the new laptops powered by Intel’s 10th generation processors showcased at IFA in September.

Having said that, it is interesting to note that Dell has already announced its XPS 2-in-1 lineup with Intel’s 10th generation processors a few months ago. If you are thinking about 9th generation Intel processors, they have been skipped. Therefore, laptop manufacturers will directly go from Intel’s 8th generation Whiskey Lake processors to Intel’s 10th generation Ice Lake CPUs.
