Intel's 10th-gen CPUs for powerful ultraportables will reach six cores

In all, Intel says it expects "more than 90 additional" laptop designs to hit store shelves with 10th Gen CPUs for the holiday season. Today, it's further expanding the lineup of its 10th gen processors with 8 new chips built on its 14nm process technology, dubbed Comet Lake.

The eight chips are split evenly across a new set of U-series and Y-series processors, with each packing a spread of Core i3, i5, and i7 entries.

Finally, we have a 10th Gen update for the Inspiron range of laptops.

Next-gen laptops with 10th Gen Comet Lake chips should be significantly faster than the current crop of notebooks. They take advantage of the super optimized 14nm process technology to offer a gain of 16 percent overall performance and more than 41 percent better productivity and multitasking. Dell is adding Comet Lake chips to suit everyone's needs, be that a 13-, 14-, and 15-inch laptop and across the 3000, 5000, and 7000 model ranges. Intel also promises long battery life but didn't give specifics. For the best integrated graphics performance, see Ice Lake.

The updated Dell XPS 13 will be available August 27.

Comet Lake processors do deliver more performance than previous-generation models due to higher clock speeds and enhanced in-silicon security mitigations for the recent wave of security vulnerabilities.

Another feature is integrated Thunderbolt 3 for charging devices, superfast data transfer and connecting to an eGPU or multiple 4K monitors. Intel's explanation is its 10nm Ice Lake parts is focused on bringing artificial intelligence capabilities to the PC at scale.

Lesh and his passenger climbed from the downed plane and grabbed flotation devices and a cell phone as the plane began to sink. Leipelt had notified authorities immediately after Lesh's plane hit the water, The San Francisco Chronicle reported .

All options only come with LPDDR3 Dual-Channel SDRAM, which is unfortunate since the 10th-gen CPUs support LPDDR4x RAM. The US tech giant's Haifa team was behind the core of these processors. From there, you have i7, or the brand modifier.

In a bid to "simplify" the difference between the two types of processors, Intel points to the "G7" branding (which could also be G4) that denotes the level of Gen11 graphics, as the primary identifier for Ice Lake chips.

It starts with node size. In addition, Intel is planning to launch more Comet Lake CPUs in the first half of next year.

While that's a significant distinction, it probably doesn't mean much to the majority of consumers. As far as multi-threaded workloads go, Ice Lake does not now have a 6-core/12-thread option like Comet Lake does. However, on paper, Comet Lake reigns. That processor will feature a base clock of 1.1GHz, a single-core Turbo speed of 4.7GHz and all-core Turbo at 3.9GHz.

Laptop makers are already starting to announce new products based on Comet Lake.

Until then, Intel claims that Comet Lake is the better choice than Ice Lake for users who care about raw performance.

Announced ahead of IFA 2019 in Berlin next month, Dell's new models will use the 10th Gen Comet Lake processors.
