Processors Comet Lake Powerfuls for the mobile market are expected to appear in commercial products in a short time - but it seems that processors Comet Lake Upgrades for desktops will be delayed due to technical challenges
The bulk of the attention of Intel and its partners in the huge CES 2020 show Awarded for future generations destined to arrive sometime towards the end of the year and beyond, In the form of the 10-nanometer Tiger Lake processors and of course the first graphics processing cards in the new Xe architecture - but until all this good and interesting lands on us, we expect a complete picture of the tenth Core product generation with the code name Comet Lake. What exactly is happening there and when? The answers to this are still not entirely clear, especially after a rather surprising disregard of Intel Herself at her official public event.
Intel officials have confirmed that Comet Lake H-portable processors, with a 45-watt power envelope, are expected to appear on various laptops before the end of the current quarter, ie before the end of March 2020 - thus strengthening the existing supply of Comet Lake-U models with four And six processing cores in a 15-watt power envelope, ahead of the competition that will be much tougher this time on the part of AMD.
Comet Lake-H models have not yet been revealed in their name, but Intel has provided a teaser with promises of unprecedented maximum operating frequencies of more than 5 GHz for the first time in the mobile market (probably thanks to the use of Turbo Boost 3.0 technology) in versions Core i7 andCore i9 - which will offer up to eight physical processing cores and 16 logical cores as opposed to six cores and 12 cores respectively in the generationCoffee Lake-H previous.
Another intriguing processor from home Intel Expected to reach us over the next three months is theCore i7-1068G7 - The first in the family Ice Lake With an increased power envelope of 28 watts instead of 15 watts which will allow it to offer a significantly increased basic operating frequency of 2.3GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of over 4GHz. It will be interesting to see how many manufacturers in the field will indeed choose to use such an exotic component - and how much the enlarged shell will contribute to improving the performance of the high-quality and modern built-in graphic core hidden inside.
So what about Comet Lake-S desktop processors, which are supposed to bring the blessing of HyperThreading technology to the family ofCore i3 budget while increasing the maximum number of physical cores on the platform from eight to ten? Here things are more complicated, with rumors of extremely high power consumption that could cross a 300-watt peak at its peak due to a continued reliance on a 14-nm veteran manufacturing process.
Intel itself as well as the motherboard makers for the platform (with an updated Z490 chipset) are forced to make engineering preparations and adjustments that will allow Comet Lake desktops to function as required, and these moves appear to be delaying the official launch and even the official announcement that has not yet taken place. That-AMD Continues to celebrate with theRYZEN Its 3000 which include both 12 cores and 16 cores.
