Intel Announces 10nm-Based, 10th-Generation Core Processors

Finally breaking the 14nm barrier

Months after unveiling its 9th-generation Core processors for both desktop and mobile, Intel launched its 10th-generation Ice Lake Core processors. Initially comprising of 11 variants (for the low-power U and Y series), the new processors now use a 10nm process–a first for Intel.

Key features include a quad-core (8 thread) structure, Intel Iris Plus graphics, up to 32 GB of LP4/x-3733 or up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, and support forĀ Optane memory SSDs/Memory, PCIe 3.0, SATA, SD 3.0 and eMMC 5.1 storage.

All Ice Lake processors come with a display port, USB-C, USB 3.1 (10 Gbps/5Gbps) and USB 2.0.

Intel U-Series processors

  • Intel Core i7-1068G7
  • Intel Core i7-1065G7
  • Intel Core i5-1035G7
  • Intel Core i5-1035G4
  • Intel Core i5-1035G1

Intel Y-Series processors

  • Intel Core i7-1060G7
  • Intel Core i5-1030G7
  • Intel Core i5-1030G4
  • Intel Core i3-1000G4
  • Intel Core i3-1000G1

All U-series and Y-series Ice Lake processors are made for ultraslim laptops and 2-in-1 computers and are expected to be commercially available by November or December this year.

  1. Benchmarks from AnandTech, one of the most trusted sources on the internet, concluded that Ice Lake isn’t much of an improvement over the last-gen Whiskey Lake which is a disappointment considering their claims found in the slides they’ve distributed to the media. Not to mention, the core count for this new generation of CPUs only goes up to 4. Plus, it doesn’t help that Intel’s current mobile and desktop chips will only be produced at 10nm and 14nm process nodes respectively. Yet another disappointing launch similar to Nvidia’s “Super” GPU lineup.
