Intel has released 11 new Core chipsets based on a 10nm process technology. So far, the officially announced Intel processors are intended for laptops, with desktop versions expected a little later.
New items are divided into two serial categories: Y and U, depending on the power of the notebooks for which they are intended. The Y-series chips complement lighter-performance devices, including the 2-in-1 models. The U-series is designed for more powerful laptops.
Intel's 10nm processors have become known as the manufacturer's longest-running project. The company tried to speed up their release and subsequent mass production, but the deadlines were constantly shifting, and this stretched over several years. The new generation chips were originally slated for release in 2015. Then that date was pushed back two years later, and finally, in 2018, the company announced that Intel 10nm processors would not be ready until next 2019.
An important feature of the new family of chips is more powerful graphics components. According to the manufacturer, the improved graphics support stable gaming applications in 1080p resolution. In addition, all Intel 2019 processors in the two new series are equipped with artificial intelligence algorithms and machine learning technology. As a result, the new chips in an accelerated mode perform operations with multimedia files, process photos and perform other actions using AI tools.
All Core processors of the two new series, with the exception of the Core i3 model, have four processing cores. Also, each processor has support for 16 PCIe 3.0 lanes for external connections. All chips have a special power saving mode that is activated when the laptop is used less intensively. Also, 10th generation Intel processors support TurboBoost acceleration technology.
The less powerful Y series is represented by five models. Among them are a couple of dual-core modifications of the Core i3, another pair of Core i5 with four cores and the only representative of the Core i7 (also 4 cores). Their operating frequencies are from 0.7 to 1.1 GHz, in turbo mode, each core is overclocked in the range from 3.2 to 3.8 GHz.
There are only six representatives of the more powerful U series: one dual-core i3, three representatives of the Core i5 and two more i7. Their main operating frequency ranges are from 1 to 1.3 GHz, in TurboBoost mode - from 3.4 to 3.9 GHz.
According to the manufacturer, the devices, which will include the new series of Intel processors, will go on sale within two months.
