    Phoronix: Intel Talks Up Icelake At Computex 2019

    At Intel's keynote today at Computex, Icelake was the main subject of their presentation. Icelake mobile CPUs aren't shipping today but are said to be coming out this summer...

    THey announced Thunderbolt3 support will be offered alongside WiFi 6. I think that's important.

      Unfortunately, Intel has a bad reputation nowadays.

          The top TDP is pretty low. Is intel abandoning mobile workstation market?

            They are only releasing mobile parts which have terribly low turbo. Dell listed the specifications for their latest XPS 13:

              Yep, it looks pretty bad, there are no hex-core either. I assume a turbo clock this high up from the base goes beyond TDP way too much, and can't be sustained for long as well. I wish they would keep releasing 45W and 55W parts for those who want something that can handle heavy workloads on the go. With improvements they made over all these generations, such chips would be quite powerful.

              It shouldn't be hard to pull off either. TDP-down functionality became standard in their chips, and they could sell 55W parts and then let manufacturers cap them at something like 25W or 35W in smaller laptops that can't have adequate cooling. I wish it was standard in Ivy Bridge, but I managed to get one of chips that lack this functionality. Still, thermald does it job pretty well.
