Intel today launched 11 new 10th Gen Intel Core processors code-named “Ice Lake” for thin and light laptops and 2-in-1 devices. In addition to delivering improved performance, these processors come with AI, graphics, connectivity and I/O improvements. 10th Gen Intel Core processors come with the following features and capabilities:
- Intel Deep Learning Boost, a new, dedicated instruction set that accelerates neural networks on the CPU for maximum responsiveness in scenarios such as automatic image enhancements, photo indexing and photorealistic effects.
- Up to 1 teraflop of GPU engine compute for sustained, high-throughput inference applications like video stylization, analytics and real-time video resolution upscaling.
- Intel Gaussian & Neural Accelerator (GNA) delivers a dedicated engine for background workloads such as voice processing and noise suppression at ultra-low power, for maximum battery life.
- These are the first GPUs from Intel to support VESA’s Adaptive Sync* display standard, which enables a smoother gaming experience across games like Dirt Rally 2.0* and Fortnite*.
- Based on Intel’s Gen11 graphics architecture, they are also the industry’s first integrated GPU to incorporate variable rate shading for improved rendering performance.
- With support for the BT.2020* specification, watch 4K HDR video in a billion colors.
Thanks to the new Intel Iris Plus graphics, these 10th gen processors will offer double the grpahics performance. On the connectivity front, Intel 10th gen processors come with support for Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and four Thunderbolt 3 ports.
Devices with the 10th Gen Intel Core processor will be available from PC OEMs for the holiday season.
At Computex, Intel previewed some of the products including Acer Swift 5, Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, HP Envy 13” and Lenovo S940.
