Intel announced the new Sunny Cove microarchitecture-based 10nm Ice Lake processor at this year’s CES. The company confirmed that it will bring its first-ever 10nm processor to the market by the end of 2019.
Keeping the promise, Intel’s Chief Engineering Officer, Murthy Reduchintala today announced that the company is all set to start the shipping of the 10nm-based Ice Lake processor from June this year. It, in turn, means that PC manufacturers will be able to ship new PCs with the new Ice Lake processor by the holiday season(via Neowin).
Talking about the specs, Intel promises improvements in speed for video encoding and graphics, artificial intelligence, and more. Otherwise, it features integrated Thunderbolt 3, Wi-Fi 6, and DL Boost (deep learning boost).
Intel also talked about its upcoming 7nm-based processors. The chip maker for the first time will use extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography so as to improve “multiple node generations.”
The 7nm-based processor is expected to arrive sometime in 2021.
