Intel demos 10nm Ice Lake SoC, to come in products by end of the year
In December, Intel introduced Sunny Cove, its new structure that may inform its processors of the future.
And as we speak at CES 2019, Intel has demonstrated Ice Lake, its first processors to be based mostly on Sunny Cove.
The spotlight right here is that Ice Lake will likely be based mostly on a 10nm course of. Something that Intel has been keen to do however has been held again by the limitations of its older structure.
The 10nm course of apart, Ice Lake will combine native Thunderbolt 3, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), Gen11 graphics, and synthetic intelligence. it can additionally characteristic in-silicon mitigations for Meltdown and Spectre.
Native help for Wi-Fi 6 ought to assist proliferate the new customary, hopefully making the transition from Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) to Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) smoother and faster than from Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) to Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac).
Also price wanting ahead to is Gen11 graphics, which can permit Ice Lake machines to output to 4K displays and likewise present graphics efficiency enhance over older processors, permitting it to be extra succesful gaming machines.
Ice Lake processors may even come with one thing referred to as “DL Boost” (deep studying enhance) which improves AI purposes. They demonstrated this by operating a script the place an Ice Lake machine sorted out images with water sooner than an eighth technology Core i7 processor.
Finally, Dell got here up to the stage and confirmed off an early XPS system that was powered by an Ice Lake processor.
Intel says we are able to count on Ice Lake-powered gadgets to seem on cabinets by the end of this year.
Apart from Ice Lake, Intel additionally introduced that there will likely be six new ninth technology Core processors. However, they didn’t disclose elements numbers. Also, ninth technology Core processors will likely be coming to cell quickly. Again, no specifics there. We will strive to discover out extra so keep tuned.
