A couple of days ago, Intel’s mobile and desktop lineups were leaked. Now, details of Intel’s 10th Generation Core family for notebook platforms also seems to have leaked out. The latest details include processors based on two architectures namely the 14nm Comet Lake-U and 10nm Ice Lake-U families which would be launching around the 2nd half of 2019.
Intel’s 14nm Comet Lake-U and 10nm Ice Lake-U processors would launch very close to one another. The Intel Ice Lake-U processors would be available in limited quantities around June 2019 while Comet Lake-U processors would start shipping to consumers in Q3 2019. That’s around a few months difference between both families. Intel Comet Lake will be the first to make use of the 10th gen brand in the desktop space, the 14nm follow-up to Coffee Lake suspected to launch sometime between Q3 and Q2, 2020. But for mobile Intel has reiterated Ice Lake will be ready for launch before the end of 2019.
|Processor||Cores / Threads||Base Clock||Boost Clock (1 Core)||Boost Clock (All Cores)||TDP|
|Core i7–10710U||6 / 12||1.1 GHz||4.6 GHz||3.8 GHz||15W|
|Core i7-10510U||4 / 8||1.8 GHz||4.9 GHz||4.3 GHz||15W|
|Core i5-10210U||4 / 8||1.6 GHz||4.2 GHz||3.9 GHz||15W|
|Core i3-10110U||2 / 4||2.1 GHz||4.1 GHz||3.7 GHz||15W|
Comet Lake-U parts will be quite flexible in terms of memory support. Manufacturers can pair the chips with DDR4 memory modules up to 2,666MHz or with LPDDR3 sticks up to 2,133MHz. An update to Intel’s Linux DRM kernel driver from last month indicates that Comet Lake will retain Skylake’s Gen9 (Generation 9) graphics processor in both GT1 and GT2 configurations. This isn’t a complete shocker considering we knew Comet Lake was just another refresh in Intel’s plans all along.
Intel’s 10th Gen is made up of low-power mobile processors on the 10nm process alongside 14nm mobile and desktop chips.
