After a lengthy delay, the first systems powered by Intel's 10nm Ice Lake processors are finally shipping. The processors promise some significant boosts in performance along with a new Gen 11 graphics architecture that offers more features and much better performance than any of Intel's previous-gen integrated graphics solutions. Needless to say, Intel has been facing some significant pressure on the desktop side of things -- especially with the recent launch of Zen 2 Ryzen 3000 processors -- but the company is more than confident in its ability to dominate AMD in the mobile sector. And with Ice Lake, Intel hopes to widen its lead against the current crop of 12nm Ryzen 3000... Read more...
We've all been waiting a long time for 10nm Ice Lake processors to arrive, and Intel is finally ready to deliver after sticking with the 14nm process node (albeit with refinements along the way) for four years. Everyone of course is eager to hear about the performance of the first Ice Lake processors (which will initially be available with up to four cores) and what kind of gains they will bring with respect to power efficiency, but what's equally exciting is the integrated graphics. Intel labels Ice Lake's graphics subsystem as Gen11, and it is far more advanced and powerful than anything that the company has ever previously put forward. We're looking at 64 execution units with... Read more...
All of the buzz surrounding Intel's efforts in graphics right now is around the company's Odyssey towards its first modern discrete GPU, currently scheduled for release in 2020. That's understandable, but let's not forget that, in terms of market share, Intel's integrated graphics lead the pack. Intel's upcoming Gen11 graphics will keep things going, and interestingly, Intel has quietly released a white paper that describes Gen11 in some detail. Intel has already shared a few details about Gen11 during its Architecture Day last December. Gen11 will complement Intel's upcoming Sunny Cove CPU architecture, which itself will form the basis for both Core (consumer) and Xeon (server) processors. While... Read more...
Intel held its 2018 “Architecture Day” yesterday, where top execs plotted out the company’s direction for architecture and product roadmaps in the near-future and further out on the horizon. The event was held at a home once owned by Robert Noyce. Noyce, known as the "Mayor of Silicon Valley" back in the day, co-founded Intel in 1968 with Gordon Moore. This mansion setting was a perfect backdrop for Intel to underscore its new direction for the analysts and journalists in attendance. Intel has been under intense pressure due to delays of volume ramp of its 10nm process fabricated CPU products, but the company apparently has more than a few tricks up its sleeve to stay ahead...
