As predicted by Computex, Intel today announced the details of the first 10th generation Core i processors, including i3 to i7 U-series and Y-series chips, a total of 11 models. However, what is really surprising is the naming change. Intel did not choose to change the model to five digits. Instead, it removed the last code and then added two codes to represent the internal display. "G7" is a chip with 64 "execution units" (EU), "G4" has 64 48 EUs, and "G1" has 32 EUs. So the top-end chip becomes "Core i7-1068G7" and the lowest one is "Core i3-1000G1".
Sharp-eyed readers may have found that the words "U" and "Y" traditionally indicate TDP have disappeared. From the model point of view, all U series chips are the fourth code with "8" or "5" as the number (the end of 8 is 28W, the end of 25 is 25W), while the "Y" series are "0" is the fourth code (12W), so it should be able to be distinguished to some extent, but not as obvious as it used to be.
Not only has it been upgraded to a 10nm process, the Sunny Cove used in the 10th generation is said to be a major architectural change. In addition to increasing L1 and L2 caches, IPC can also be 18% higher than the previous generation, leaving the processor unused. Running too high frequency can have the same speed as in the past. All chips will also support up to four Thunderbolt 3 ports, as well as a new generation of Wi-Fi 6 connectivity technology.
With the launch of the new chip, we should soon be able to usher in a new wave of notebooks, which may be based on the upgrade of the old models in the early days, but the next Project Athena is highly anticipated!
