Intel has officially announced their latest 10th Gen Core “Ice Lake” U-Series and Y-Series mobile processors.
The company says there will be 11 mobile SKUs for their 10th Gen Core processor family which includes the Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7.
The 10th Gen Intel Core processors are the first 10nm chips from the company and will be optimized for use in thin-and-light laptops and 2-in-1 PCs from a number of PC manufacturers in more than 35 designs.
“These 10th Gen Intel Core processors shift the paradigm for what it means to deliver leadership in mobile PC platforms. With broad-scale AI for the first time on PCs, an all-new graphics architecture, best-in-class Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt 3 – all integrated onto the SoC, thanks to Intel’s 10nm process technology and architecture design – we’re opening the door to an entirely new range of experiences and innovations for the laptop,” said Chris Walker, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of Mobility Client Platforms in the Client Computing Group.
One of which that has already been announced is Dell’s XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) that comes with a 13.4-inch InfinityEdge display, up to a 10th Intel Gen Core i7 and up to 16 hours of battery life.
Dell’s XPS 13 2-in-1 was supposed to launch in July but it hasn’t launched yet. It’ll start at $999 USD when it does launch.
The SKUs are as follows:
- Intel Core i3-1005G1
- Intel Core i5-10045G1
- Intel Core i5-10045G4
- Intel Core i5-10045G7
- Intel Core i7-1035G7
- Intel Core i7-1065G7
- Intel Core i7-1068G7
- Intel Core i3-1000G1
- Intel Core i3-1000G4
- Intel Core i5-1030G4
- Intel Core i5-1030G7
- Intel Core i7-1060G7
All of the above processors have Intel Iris Plus Graphics, Intel Wi-Fi6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt 3 support.
Intel says you can expect up to 8X performance when using DL Boost and 20% boost in graphics performance thanks to the company’s Adaptix technology.
With the new processors, you’ll be able to watch 4K video 60 fps in HDR with ease.
You should start seeing laptops with 10th Gen Intel Core processors in the coming months (like the new Dell XPS 13 2-in-1).
