Intel has been having issues with the 10nm process but the company has just announced the 10th generation Ice Lake CPUs that are based on the 10nm process at Computex 2019. Intel has announced that the new CPUs will be coming to mobile first and desktop later this year.
You might still be skeptical about Intel’s Ice Lake CPUs and I would not be surprised keeping in mind the PR stunt that the company pulled off last year at Computex but I guess that time will tell what Intel has to offer. I will believe it once I see it.
The Intel 10th generation Ice Lake CPUs will come with the Gen11 integrated graphics that we have been hearing about. While we do not official information regarding the graphics solution, it is supposed to offer a significant boost in performance compared to what Intel is currently offering. The chips will be integrated with Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 3.
At Computex 2019 Intel showed off the 10nm wafer and also announced the i9-9900KS that is supposed to take things to the next level. The CPU has the same cores and threads as the 9900K but this new version will be able to run at 5GHz on all cores. While it is interesting, you might not find it worth the upgrade if you already own the 9900K.
AMD Ryzen 3000 series has been announced and it is going to be available in July 2019. AMD has already announced CPUs with up to 12 cores and 24 threads in the mainstream lineup but from what we have heard, the company might release a 16 core 32 threads variant later this year as well. That should be very interesting indeed.
AMD has gained a lot of market share in the short time since it made its comeback and has posed as a proper threat for Intel. We will see how Intel responds to this threat in 2019. So far we have seen nothing of interest from the company.
Let us know what you think about Intel 10th generation Ice Lake CPUs and whether or not you think Intel can still keep up with AMD in 2019.
