Intel 10th Gen 10nm ‘Ice Lake’ processor for laptops and 2-in-1s announced

Intel launched its 9th Gen Core desktop CPUs last year and earlier this year, the company launched 9th Gen Mobile H-Series processor. Today, the company is officially introducing the 10th Gen Intel Core processor, code-named Ice Lake.

Intel has launched 11 new 10th Gen Core processors(U-Series and Y-Series) designed for slim laptops, 2-in-1s, and other mobile form factors. Intel says that apart from the performance and responsiveness gains, AI, graphics, connectivity, and I/O are optimized on the SoC. These new processors feature a new Intel Iris Plus graphics and bring high-performance AI to the PC, according to the company.

Intel U-Series and Y-Series processor have 4 cores(8 logical cores) and are built on the 10nm architecture, features Gen 11 Intel Graphics Engine, supports 32 GB of LP4/x-3733 or up to 64GB of DDR4-3200, supports Intel Optane memory SSDs/Memory, PCIe 3.0, SATA, SD 3.0 and eMMC 5.1 storage. Both have 16 lane PCIe 3.0 lanes, feature Integrated Wi-Fi 6(Gig+) and Thunderbolt 3. There is an embedded display port, Integrated USB Type-C, USB 3(10 Gbps/5Gbps) and USB 2.0. These GPUs from Intel are the first to support VESA’s Adaptive Sync display standard for a smoother gaming experience.
