Intel Expands 10th Gen Core Mobile Processor Family
Intel introduced eight additional 10th Gen Core processors for modern laptop computing. The new mobile PC processors (formerly code-named “Comet Lake”) are made to deliver increased productivity and performance scaling for multithreaded workloads while still enabling thin-and-light laptop and 2 in 1 designs with high battery life.
These processors are bring double digit performance gains compared with the previous generation. The lineup also includes Intel’s first 6-core processor in the U-series, faster CPU frequencies, faster memory interfaces and the industry redefining connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and broader scaling of Thunderbolt 3. More than 90 additional designs based on the 10th Gen Intel Core processor family will hit the shelves for the holiday season.
New processors leverage the improvements in intra-node optimizations on 14nm process technology that enable up to 16% overall performance gains and over 41% better productivity and multitasking on Microsoft Office 365 compared with the previous generation without compromising battery life. Additionally, they integrate new wireless connectivity with WiFi6 and support Thunderbolt 3, the fastest and most versatile port available5.
Earlier, Intel launched the first products in 10th Gen Core processor family, which were developed on the 10nm process technology and focus on bringing high-performance AI to the PC at scale, a big leap forward in graphics performance and connectivity. The new processors share the same leading platform connectivity, while expanding the family with processors for scaling performance and frequencies for modern productivity workloads. The result is a complete family of processors that complement each other, giving people choices for what usages matter most to them and re-imagining the possibilities of a modern laptop experience.
The new processors scale the number of designs optimized with Adaptix Technology, supporting modern standby for faster wake and enabling multiple voice assistant services built into the PCs. Within this technology, Dynamic Tuning enables OEM partners to tune systems to achieve even more performance, ranging from 8% to 12% on a typical system. On select designs, Dynamic Tuning now offers the first ever AI-based pre-trained algorithms to predict workloads and allow higher turbo burst when responsiveness is needed and extended time in turbo for sustained workloads.
Laptops and 2 in 1s powered by the new 10th Gen Core processors will be available from PC manufacturers for the holiday season. Select systems from PC manufacturers are on track for verification through Intel’s innovation program code-named “Project Athena.”
