Intel has released Ice Lake – the 10th generation Intel Core processor. The release comes after about a year of struggle for the company that celebrated 50th-anniversary last year. The company has been struggling to make a significant impact on the market so far.
Even the company’s long-time supporter Apple has already suggested that it will be focusing on creating its own chips in the future. This means that the future doesn’t look so bright for Intel and it is during these conditions that Intel has launched the first batch of 10nm CPUs.
All of the releases from Intel come in different sorts so as to cater to different needs of computers. The Intel releases range from 95-watt desktop gaming chips to the 5 or 7 watts series that is designed for slim laptops and tablets that are lightweight. Ice Lake begins with 9W, 15W, and 28W parts with up to 4 cores, 8 threads, and a 4.1GHz turbo clock speed.
To give you a perspective, the 10th generation 10 Nanometer Ice Lake is much better than what you will find in a 13 inch MacBook Pro at the moment. However, the bigger chips are still to be released. According to Intel, the bigger chips for Ice Lake will be launched by the end of the year. Intel has revealed the chips alongside news about another innovation program that is called ‘Project Athena’.
Gregory Bryant, Intel senior vice president, and general manager of the Client Computing Group said, ‘No one wants to compromise; people want it all: battery life, performance, responsiveness, connectivity, and slick form factors. Our job is to come together as an industry and deliver incredible and differentiated PCs, purpose-built to what real people want. 10th Gen Intel Core processors – our most integrated CPU – and Project Athena are great examples of how our deep investments at a platform level will help fuel innovation across the industry.’
What do you think of this release? Will Intel be able to secure its place in the market with its Ice Lake CPUs or will it soon become redundant? Do let u know!
