Over at Computex, Intel has some new processors on display. First up the company is displaying its future 10nm Ice Lake processors, and next it also has the Core i9-9900KS processor. Both parts will ship this year.
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.
Heterogeneous computing architectures bring intelligent performance: Intel is realizing the benefits of heterogeneous computing for both client and data center in current products through its architecture design and I/O innovations. 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.
The Core i9-9900KS is the chip giant's first eight-core processor that can do a 5.0GHz Turbo on all cores. Pricing is unknown.
