Intel Ice Lake: This is the 10th generation of laptop CPUs

On August 1.8.2019st, 10, Intel will surprise us with the new Intel Ice Lake generation, which promises us the XNUMXnm standard. Ultrabook users in particular should be happy about this, as they also draw far fewer watts from the battery. All information.

With the 10th gen, Intel is finally making it all Prozessor classes to 10 nm, whereas AMD has already arrived at 7 nm. First of all, the CPU performance should be loud PCMag's be solid. More precise benchmark scores can be found in the link above. The only downside that the 10th generation delivers is that the i7Prozessor only has 4 instead of 6 cores like its predecessor. Currently, Intel does not deliver i9 monsterProprocessors for laptops and ultrabooks.

For all notebook and ultrabook users, the new generation offers a few extra hours because the new Proprocessors only draw 9 to 28W. Now in detail: Intel shares the Processors in two stages, namely in the U- and Y-Series. The U-Series consume 15-28 watts, the Y-Series 9-12 watts. Thus, the Y series is the more energy efficient series of the two and will be found in Ultrabooks.

Integrated GPU

In the 10th generation there is no Intel UHD graphics card, this time Intel relies on Iris Plus graphics, which are divided into different performance classes.

The better Iris Plus G7 in the form of the i7-1065G7 beats in the benchmark test of PCMag's the previous generation by almost three times. It has even been pitted against a dedicated graphics card, a GeForce MX, it is very common in ultrabooks, even reaching 75% of their performance. Hard to believe that in such a small and good Proprocessor then also has a 3/4 GeForce MX graphics card.

Other nice features

The new generation also provides Thunderbolt support for external graphics cards or similar things as standard, which means that even cheaper ultrabooks don't have to save on Thunderbolt in terms of price. Another feature is Wi-Fi 6, which slumbers in the chip and not on the motherboard via a network card.


Now the most important question is answered: does the upgrade to the 10th Intel Ice Lake generation pay off? In my opinion, definitely for ultrabooks, since the chips use less on the battery thanks to the lower watt consumption. A clear improvement can also be seen in the graphics area, Thunderbolt and WiFi 6 support are a nice addition. People who deal a lot with gaming should rather rely on a gaming notebook.
