Intel Talks Up Icelake At Computex 2019
One day after AMD's big Zen 2 and Navi announcements, Intel talked up the selling points of Icelake and that also came a few weeks after another Icelake/Sunnycove press event (I wasn't at that one due to Intel also running the Open-Source Technology Summit at the same time in different states). The Computex 2019 keynote highlights basically boil down to:
- Icelake will be known as 10th Generation Core
- Icelake will still be offered in up to four core / eight thread designs at up to 4.1GHz max turbo frequency.
- TDPs on Icelake mobile parts range from 9 to 28 Watts.
- The Gen11 graphics on Icelake are still being advertised as 1 TeraFLOP of compute power with up to 64 execution units.
- Icelake will introduce a new (14nm) PCH providing WiFi 6, six USB 3.1 ports, quad-core audio DSP, 16 Gen 3 PCIe lanes, SATA 6Gbps ports, and eMMC 5.1.
- Intel is still pursuing Project Athena as an annually updated specification that is a "comprehensive innovation program" around battery life, performance / responsiveness, form factor, and other criteria for meeting this flagship Intel assessment.
- The first Icelake-powered laptops are to ship this summer.
