Intel announced its new generation of low-power processors for portable computers, we talk about the 10th Generation Intel Core known as "Comet Lake"using the"highly optimized manufacturing process of 14nm".
This will create a lot of confusion, since will live with the Intel Ice Lake developed at 10nm but that are much more powerful with configurations of only 2 cores. This "new" architecture promises up to 16% overall performance extra regarding the 9th generation of CPUs, and up to 41% in multicore applications, while the desktop variant, which would bring the new processors of up to 10 cores, it would take time to arrive, specifically until the second half of 2021 according to current plans.
This family of processors is made up of a total of 8 models, which start from 2 cores and 4 processing threads at frequencies Base / Turbo 1 core / Turbo all cores @ 1.00 / 4.00 / 3.70 GHz, while as a top-of-the-range model we have a Intel Core i7-10710U 6-core and 12-wire @ 1.10 / 4.70 / 3.90 GHz.
Main features of the 10th Generation Intel Core i3 to Core i7:
- Up to 6 cores and 12 processing threads
- Max Turbo frequency up to 3.90 GHz
- Up to 12 MB Intel Smart Cache
- Configurable TDP of up to 25 W for maximum performance (U-series)
- TDP configurable up to 4.5 W for 4 cores with fanless design (Y-series)
- Up to 1.15 GHz in integrated graphics
- Memory support LPDDR4x, LPDDR3, DDR4 up to 2666 MHz
All the Intel Comet Lake are compatible with Wi-Fi connectivity 6 (Gig +), Thuderbolt 3, integrate Intel HD Graphcis graphics based on Skylake architecture (Gen 9.5) vs the Ice Lake Gen11, and will begin to be available today in a wide variety of portable computers.
