Intel Expands 10th Gen Core Processor Family
Intel has expanded its 10th Gen Core range with the introduction of eight new processors all tailor-made to deliver increased productivity and performance scaling for demanding, multi-threaded workloads.
The new lineup of 10th Gen processors, which were initially announced at Computex 2019, will be available from retailers just in time for the upcoming holiday season.
They include Intel’s first 6-core processor in the U-series, faster CPU frequencies, faster memory interfaces, connectivity with Intel Wi-Fi 6 and broader scaling of Thunderbolt 3.
According to Intel, the new range of processors, formerly codenamed Comet Lake, deliver up to double-digit performance gains compared to the previous generation of chips.
“Our 10th Gen Intel Core mobile processors provide customers with the industry-leading range of products that deliver the best balance of performance, features, power and design for their specific needs,” said Chris Walker, Intel corporate vice-president and GM of Mobility Client Platforms in the Client Computing Group.
“From multi-tasking to everyday content creation, the newest additions to the family-scale performance for even higher levels of productivity – in addition to offering best-in-class platform connectivity via Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 3 that people expect with 10th Gen.”
The new 10th Gen Intel Core processors range from Intel Core i3 to Intel Core i7 and feature up to 6 cores and 12 threads, 4.9GHz max turbo frequency, 12MB Intel Smart Cache, and up to 1.15GHz graphics frequency.
Each processor takes advantage of Intel’s portfolio of technologies and IP, delivering a range of workload-optimised platforms to address diverse, modern computing needs and experiences.
The 10th Gen Core processors leverage the improvements in intra-node optimisations on Intel’s 14nm process technology, which enables up to 16% overall performance gains and over 41% better productivity.
The new processors also have the ability scale the number of designs optimised with Intel Adaptix Technology, supporting modern standby for faster wake and enabling multiple voice assistant services built into the PCs.
On select designs, Intel Dynamic Tuning Technology now offers the first-ever AI-based pre-trained algorithms to predict workloads and allow higher turbo boost when responsiveness is needed and extended time in turbo for sustained workloads.
