Recently, Intel released its powerful 9th generation laptop CPUs and at the same time they gave a hint about the upcoming ‘Ice Lake’ CPUs. However, at that time, the company didn’t unveil much about them. But now its finally ready to talk about their latest ‘Ice Lake’ CPUs, officially called as the 10th-Gen Core. With the latest CPU, the company is targetting the ultraportables first with U-series processors as their major priority instead of laptops.
As expected, the 10th-gen CPUs will be available in Core i3, i5, and i7 variants. Also, the company already teased us that they will be shipping this next-gen CPUs with the powerful 11th-gen “Iris Plus” integrated graphics which are fast enough to run games decently in 1080p.
The 10th-gen CPUs is based on Intel’s Sunny Cove architecture, which features a quad-core, eight-thread design and speeds up to 4.1GHz. The company claims Sunnycove can handle 18 percent more instructions per clock (IPC) than before, which means they’ll do a lot more at equivalent clock speeds. In return, this will improve PC performance. To add more performance capabilities, Intel has added a much larger L1 and L2 cache, more execution ports, and better branch prediction.
Moreover, with the 11th-generation graphics, there will be a massive hike in the speed of the system as the features of this 11th-gen graphic over a teraflop worth of performance with 64 execution units and a clock speed up to 1.1GHz. Intel has also published a comparison chart for 1080p gaming on 10-gen CPUs and 8th-Gen CPUs which you can see below. With this graphics, the system will be easily able to run through some high-end applications like Adobe Premiere, Cyberlink PowerDirector and many more.
You can also look forward to faster AI computation in 10th-gen CPUs. The new Core i7 is around two and a half times faster than last year’s when processing images through the ResNet-50 deep learning interface. During Intel’s Computex keynote, the company also showed off how the AI capabilities could help sharpen blurry video footage almost instantly.
Apart from this, the 10th-gen chips will include WiFi 6/802.11ax, which offers around 40 percent faster speeds than AC wireless, and far better performance in congested areas. Also, as expected, there’s also Thunderbolt 3 support.
