Intel unveils 10th-gen CPUs with significantly improved integrated graphics
Covers 11 U-series and Y-series processors in the thin and light notebook market.
As predicted by Computex, Intel today announced the details of the first 10th generation Core I processors, including i3 to i7 U-series and Y-series chips, a total of 11 models. However, what is really surprising is the naming change. Intel didn’t choose to change the model to five digits. Instead, it removed the last code and then added two codes to represent the internal display. “G7” is a wafer with 64 “execution units” (EU), “G4” has 64 48 EU, and “G1” has 32 EU. Therefore, the highest-order chip becomes “Core i7-1068G7”, and the lowest-order one is “Core i3-1000G1”.
The sharp-eyed readers may have found that the words “U” and “Y” that traditionally represent TDP have disappeared. From the model point of view, all U series chips are the fourth code with “8” or “5” as the number (8 of which ends with 28W and ends with 5W of 25W), while the “Y” series are all It is “0” as the fourth code (12W), so it should be able to distinguish it to some extent, but it is not as obvious as it used to be.
Not only has it been upgraded to a 10nm process, but the Sunny Cove used in the 10th generation is also said to be a major architectural change. In addition to increasing L1 and L2 caches, IPC can also be 18% higher than the previous generation, allowing processors You don’t have to run too high frequency to have the same speed as in the past. All chips will also support up to four Thunderbolt 3 and a new generation of Wi-Fi 6 connectivity technology.
With the launch of the new chip, we should soon be able to usher in a new wave of notebooks, which may be based on the upgrade of the old model, but the next Project Athena is highly anticipated!
Correction: A small part of the specification table content, mainly the TDP of the low-end processor.
