Intel Ice Lake Gen 10 Core is out

by on02 August 2019


10nm with a big push on Intel Iris Plus Graphics

Intel has officially announced the 11 PC notebook SKUs of the 10 Generation Intel core processors. The one that we know as Ice Lake clocks and specs are out, and Ran Senderovitz, VP Mobile product marketing Intel client computing group, shared a few details.

Ran mentioned 11 SKUs divided in U series and Y series Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7. He was specific that this is just the beginning for the 10th generation and that there will be more processors and solutions at a later date.

They are all based on the Suny cover 10nm microarchitecture and have the new AI inference instruction set that will help in thin and light form factor. All 10th generation U and Y processors support Deep learning boost.

The full list is below, but let's mention at least the top SKUs. The Core i7 1068G7 has four cores and eight-thread support, 64 EUs of Intel Iris Plus graphics, 8 GB cache and 28W TDP. This bad boy will run at 2.3GHz base clock and 4.1 GHz in maximum single-core turbo and maximal all core turbo of 3.6 GHz, The GPU runs at 1.1 GHz.

Core i10 U series

Core i7 1065G7 has four cores and eight-thread support, 64 EUs of Intel Iris Plus graphics, 8 GB cache and 15/25W TDP. The base clock starts at 1.3GHz and ends at 3.9 GHz in maximum single-core turbo and maximal all core turbo of 3.5 GHz; The GPU runs at 1.1 GHz.

Core i5 1035G7 has four cores and eight-thread support, 64 EUs of Intel Iris Plus graphics, 6 GB cache and 15/25W TDP. It is important to notice that even at Core i5 top-end Tier Intel is using the whole 64 EUs for graphics and just 50 MHz slower clocked GPU at 1.05 GHz. The base clock starts at 1.1 GHz and ends at 3.7 GHz in maximum single-core turbo and maximal all core turbo of 3.3 GHz.

IceLakeSpec

There will be a U series Core i5 1035G4 with 48 GPU Executing units still quad-core and eight threads 6MB cache and 15/25W TDP with 1.0 base clock, 3.6 GHz max turbo and 3.3 GHz all cores and GPU clock at 1.05 GHz.

The slowest of the U series 10th generation is the Core i3 1005G1 with two cores, and four threads, 32 Executives Units for graphics, 4MB graphics, and Core i5 1035G1 will also come as a quad-core and eight-thread but with half of the GPU or 32 EUs.

Intel is using G7 for the full 1 Tflops 64 EUs capable graphics, G4 for 48 EUs and G1 for half of the Iris Plus graphics or 32 EUs.

Y series at 9 to 12W

The Core i7 1060G7 a leader of the Y series also has four cores and eight threads, 64 GPU EUs branded under Intel Iris Plus graphics, 8 MB cache and 9W to 12W TDP. The base clock starts at 1.0 GHz with the maximal single clock of 3.8GHz and maximal for all core is 3.4GHz. GPU works at 1.1 GHz.

Core i5 1030G7 four cores and eight threads have 64 EUs,6 MB cache same TDP and 800 MHz base clock, 3.5GHz maximal single-core turbo and 3.2 GHz maximal all core turbo. GPU works at 1050 MHz.

Core i5 1030G4 four cores and eight threads have 48 EUs, 6 MB cache same TDP, and 700 MHz base clock, 3.5 GHz maximal single-core turbo and 3.2 GHz maximal all core turbo. GPU works at 1050 MHz.

Top Core i3 1000G4 two cores and four threads 48 EUs, 4 MB cache same TDP, and 1.1 GHz base clock, 3.2 GHz maximal single-core turbo and 3.2 GHz maximal all core turbo. GPU works at 900 MHz.

The last of the Y series the Core i3 1000G1 has two cores and four threads 32 EUs, 4 MB cache same TDP, and 1.1 GHz base clock, 3.2 GHz maximal single-core turbo and 3.2 GHz maximal all core turbo. GPU works at 900 MHz.

Iris Plus GPU push is the key

Intel Iris Plus graphics is available in eight out of eleven SKUs. Five out of eight have all 64 Executive Units of Iris Plus enabled. This is a clear message that if you get a Core i7 and Core i5 U or Y, gaming experience should be tremendously better compared to  last year's 9th gen Core architecture codenamed Whiskey Lake. Of course the new 10th generation Sunny cove brings a much-needed instruction per clock boost and more connectivity is always great.

There will be something for everyone. Ran mentioned that all of the solutions support WiFi 6 that Intel calls Gig+ 802.11AX and Thunderbolt 3 up to four ports. Intel is supporting LG4 x-3733 and DDR4 3200 memory for the platform.

Ran Senderovitz also mentioned that the systems based on the 10th generation Intel core processors Ice Lake will be available for the western hemisphere holiday season and that there are currently 35 designs that will be ready to roll. First systems are expected to show their faces in the first days of September at IFA in Berlin,, Germany.
