Intel will announce 10nm Mobile Processor 'Ice Lake' is ready to ship & Introduce a new Gaming CPU at Computex Tomorrow
Earlier today AMD unveiled their 7nm Ryzen GPUs and CPUs at Computex 2019 that we covered in a report titled "AMD Introduced 7nm CPUs and GPUs at Computex 2019 with the GPU Likely to launch on Next-Gen iMacs."
Tomorrow it'll be Intel's turn to showcase their next-gen processors during their keynote hosted by Gregory Bryant SVP Client Computing Group.
Although Intel won't be introducing a 10nm processor for the desktop market tomorrow, they will be introducing their 10nm mobile "Ice Lake" processor and the special edition 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900KS processor for gamers.
Intel will reportedly announce that Ice Lake mobile processors will begin shipping in volume. if so, you have to wonder why Apple didn't hold off the launch of their new MacBook Pro. This will now allow PC competitors to get the leap on Apple with high-end laptops. Will Apple introduce an Ice Lake based MacBook Pro later this year? Only time will tell.
Ice Lake providing Mobile Graphics Boost
As unveiled early this month during Intel’s Investor Meeting, the company will begin shipping its first volume 10nm processor, a mobile PC product code-named "Ice Lake." Intel’s new Gen11 graphics engine in Ice Lake is enabling the industry’s first integrated GPU to incorporate variable rate shading capability by applying variable processing power to different areas of the scene to improve rendering performance. In addition, across a number of popular games, including CS:GO*, Rainbow Six Siege* and Total War: Three Kingdoms*, Gen 11 graphics are expected to nearly double the performance compared with Intel Gen 9 graphics, for stunning visual experiences on the go.
Ice Lake is a new highly-integrated platform for laptops, combining the new 'Sunny Cove' core architecture and the new Gen11 graphics architecture with both Thunderbolt 3 and Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) integrated for the first time, providing best-in-class connectivity.
This will also be Intel’s first processor designed to enable artificial intelligence (AI) for PC — leading with Intel Deep Learning Boost (DL Boost) on the CPU, as well as AI instructions on the GPU and low power accelerators — to usher in a new era of intelligent performance for PCs. On top of showing Ice Lake accelerating the workloads that people do every day, such as image deblur and stylizing videos, the company also demonstrated how Intel DL Boost can offer up to 8.8 times higher peak AI inference throughput than other comparable products on the market, as measured by AIXPRT.
New Special Edition Desktop Gaming Processor
Intel is likely to preview the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900KS special edition processor, the first to feature all 8 cores running at a turbo frequency of 5.0 GHz, making the world’s best gaming desktop processor even better.
Intel may showcase how the company is optimizing ultimate real-world performance on the most popular games running on Intel processors with both hardware and software innovations. Through the years, Intel has optimized hundreds of games by working with hundreds of thousands game developers.
