Intel Expands 10th Gen Intel Core Mobile Processor Family

Today, Intel introduced eight additional 10th Gen Intel Core processors for modern laptop computing. The new mobile PC processors (formerly code-named "Comet Lake") are tailor-made to deliver increased productivity and performance scaling for demanding, multi-threaded workloads while still enabling thin-and-light laptop and 2 in 1 designs with uncompromising battery life. These processors are performance powerhouses that 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 Intel 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.

"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. From multitasking 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 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt 3 that people expect with 10th Gen," said Chris Walker, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of Mobility Client Platforms in the Client Computing Group.
Taking advantage of Intel's world-class portfolio of technologies and intellectual property, the 10th Gen Intel Core processor family delivers a range of workload-optimized platforms to address diverse computing needs and experiences. The new 10th Gen Intel Core processors leverage the improvements in intra-node optimizations on Intel's highly optimized 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 -- all without compromising battery life. Additionally, they integrate the best wireless connectivity with Intel WiFi 6 (Gig+)4 and support Thunderbolt 3, the fastest and most versatile port available.

Earlier this month, Intel launched the first products in 10th Gen Intel Core processor family, which were developed on the 10nm process technology and focus on bringing high-performance artificial intelligence (AI) to the PC at scale, a big leap forward in graphics performance and best-in-class connectivity. The new processors introduced today 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 10th Gen Intel Core processors range from Intel Core i3 to Intel Core i7 and feature:
  • Up to 6 cores and 12 threads
  • Up to 4.9 GHz max turbo frequency
  • Up to 12 MB Intel Smart Cache
  • Configurable up to 25 W for maximum performance (U-series)
  • Configurable down to 4.5 W for 4-core fanless designs (Y-series)
  • Up to 1.15 GHz graphics frequency
  • LPDDR4x, LPDDR3, DDR4 memory speed increase to 2666 MT/s
People can also expect the same great connectivity across the entire 10th Gen Intel Core processor family. Integrated Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) brings enhanced WPA3 security for additional peace of mind and is nearly 3 times faster to enable quick file downloads and more responsive performance throughout the home. Systems with these processors can also support a Thunderbolt 3 controller enabling up to four Thunderbolt 3 ports, each capable of delivering power, download speeds of 40 Gb/s and connecting to the thousands of docks, displays and peripherals in the market, all via a single cable.

Finally, the new processors scale the number of designs optimized with Intel Adaptix Technology, supporting modern standby for faster wake and enabling multiple voice assistant services built into the PCs. Within Intel Adaptix Technology, Intel Dynamic Tuning Technology enables OEM partners to tune 10th Gen Intel Core processor-based systems to achieve even more performance -- ranging from 8% to 12% on a typical system. On select designs, Intel Dynamic Tuning Technology 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 Intel Core processors will be available from PC manufacturers for the holiday season. Select systems from PC manufacturers based on 10th Gen Intel Core processors are on track for verification through Intel's innovation program code-named "Project Athena." Look for the "Engineered for Mobile Performance" signage online and in retail stores this fall for the best of 10th Gen Intel Core processor-based systems from PC manufacturers.

Wait, Comet Lake? Roadmap leaks had this in CY20 Q3/4.

No this is about right the latest ones we saw put Comet lake at around Q3 2019 which puts this right on schedule. Comet Lake desktop is not until later next year. But that numbering system (i7-1065/ i7-10710).......

Link I found with the relevant roadmap I think Techpowerup also made a post about this one ->

Comet Lake is one last milk of skylake circa 2015, since Intel neither achieved high enough volumes on 10 nm, nor developed Ice Lake dies with over 4 CPU cores yet.

We could see a Comet Lake Desktop processor series (LGA115x, not compatible with 300-series), with 4-core/8-thread Core i3, 6-core/12-thread Core i5, 8-core/16-thread Core i7, and 10-core/20-thread Core i9 (new die).

Personally I prefer AMD's 6C\12T 15W CPU.

Wait what????:confused:

Whas it not 2019 intel shut be releasing 10 nm laptop cpu's?

If intel is still on 14 nm even on laptop. This only tells me that 10 nm for desktop is long time away yet. Ryzen 3000 is the way to go on desktop then that has been my plan since ryzen 3000 lauch.

If intel is not releasing any 10 nm laptop cpu this year, they are even more far behind than i first know.

10nm is still dead lol. This destroys the 10nm lineup.

On a paper launch, alongside new 14nm laptop chips. So intel has 0 confidence that 10nm is in any way superior to their ancient 14nm tech.

Intel has a lot of confidence in their mobile CPUs. More importantly: their consumers share this confidence. That's what making a good product is about.

You get excited by small number next to "nm", get a Ryzen. That's easy enough.

So let me get this right:

Ice lake 10nm 10th generation
Comet lake 14nm+++ labelled as 10th generation too but based on evolution of Sky lake

And then the parts labeling is very similar to really confuse people. Really pathetic effort from Intel on naming and deliberately used to catch people out

Intel needs to completely gut their marketing team and start over. Are these product names or serial numbers? Imagine a consumer walking into a big box retailer saying I want a laptop with an Core i7-10710U processor. They are going to stop at i7 and the clown working at the store will sell them a gen 8 chip for the same price. Seriously, hit the reset button already, call it Core i7X or here is a crazy idea, create a new name!

If it gets any more mature you'll have to call it elderly! I wonder if Intel's 14nm node has joined AARP yet?

Seriously though, amazing what they have managed to strangle out of it.

"over 41% better productivity and multitasking on Microsoft Office 365"

Considering most benchmarks for office are measured in the hundreds of milliseconds, is this really a productivity gain? I wonder what I will do with the accumulated 6.3 seconds I gain during a normal office week... haha. Regarding the naming, absolutely ridiculous, someone in marketing should be fired. For the layman, the naming scheme is a confusing mess.

Intel is getting slaughtered by AMD, I bet they'll do something other than launch a bunch of quad cores ... right? ︎

The monkey "team" that does the naming convention should be axed quickly and never allowed to name stuff ever again. This is worst that the uber shitty XEON naming conventions.
