Intel Expands 10th Generation Core I Series Processor, ‘Comet Lake’ Enhances Multi-Core Computing And Lower Power Consumption
This year after Computex 2019, Intel officially announced the 10th generation Core I series processor with code-named “Ice Lake”, which was built on the 10nm process. Intel again announced the expansion of the 10th generation Core I series processor lineup and the processor product codenamed “Comet Lake“.
The processor codenamed Comet Lake is made in 14nm process, which can basically be regarded as a newer version of the former codename Coffee Lake processor.
Among the series of products, Intel is adding the 6-core and 12-thread design to the U-series processor specifications for ultra-low voltage for the first time, so that the thin and light notebook products can also have higher multi-core computing performance.
Not only is the 14nm process design restored, the processor codenamed Comet Lake also restores the original naming scheme in the actual model design, and ends with a 5-digit number with U or Y. For example, the U series respectively launched Core i7-10710U and Core i7-10510U. Core i5-10210U, Core i3-10110U, Y series will launch Core i7-10510Y, Core i5-10310Y, Core i5-10210Y and Core i3-10110Y. However, Ice Lake processor with 4 digits plus G7, G4 or G1 ends in a different way.
Compared with Ice Lake’s emphasis on integrating Gen11 graphics performance and DL Boost technology, and using 10nm process technology and Sunny Cove architecture design. Comet Lake processor is obviously more focused on multi-core computing and higher computing clocks, providing up to 6 cores and 4.9GHz. The operating clock, in addition to the cache has also increased to 12MB, of which the U series thermal design power is controlled at 25W, while the Y series can be controlled at 4.5W, allowing OEMs to apply thinner, smaller computing devices.
As for Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 3, it will still be the standard support project for the Comet Lake processor. In addition, Intel will also introduce Adaptix Technology and Dynamic Tuning Technology applications in the Comet Lake processor, allowing the laptops designed by this processor to dynamically adjust performance and temperature control for different operational needs.
Like the Ice Lake processor, Intel said that products equipped with the Comet Lake processor will be available before the end of this year.
