The new, 10th generation Intel Core processors have been unveiled at this year’s Computex, currently underway in Taiwan and are called Ice Lake. The company shed some light on what PC users can be expecting from its new Intel Core processors.
The new Intel Core processors will launch with 9W, 15W and 28W variants and up to 4.1GHz turbo clock speed. The new 10 nanometer CPUs will range from Intel Core i3 to Intel Core i7, with up to 4 cores and 8 threads. By December 2019, the company is aiming to have 30 different designs of its new Ice Lake Intel Core processors on the PC market. According to Intel, the new CPUs will be 18% faster than previous models.
Intel has improved on its graphics too. Its Gen11 graphics architecture will be known as Intel Iris Plus. The new Ice Lake CPUs apparently has double the performance of the company’s previous Gen 9 CPUs. The new CPUs have integrated graphics, which translates to 1.12 teraflops of FP32 power, which the company claims can deliver 1080p gaming.
The new CPUs delivers support for up to 5K monitors at 60Hz or 4K monitors at 120Hz, with VESA Adaptive Sync support which has motion-blur and screen-tearing reduction. This could mean a smoother gameplay experience.
One of the other major selling points for the new Intel Core processors is the Intel Deep Learning Boost which brings high-performance artificial intelligence to personal computers. Intel DL Boost is estimated to deliver 2.5 times faster AI response times.
Another exciting edition is the integrated Thunderbolt 3 and Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), which Intel is claiming is capable of delivering up to three times faster wireless speeds of up to 1Gbps.
The new CPUs are currently shipping, and Intel expects them to be integrated into many major computer systems by the end of 2019.
