Intel muddy the 10th-gen waters with new “Comet Lake” family of CPUs

Category: News

You basically need a college degree to figure out Intel’s CPU lineup at the best of times, let alone after today’s new announcements.

Comet Lake, which are considered a part of Intel’s 10th generation of CPUs, are sub 15W processors that are largely, if not entirely, lipstick wearing versions of their 14nm predecessor Skylake based units.

Designed for the laptop & ultra portable market, the new U & Y series CPUs will fall in line with Intels other 10nm 10-gen CPUs by incorporating WiFi6, Thunderbolt 3 & LPDDR4X support.

Launching in retail markets at the end of the year they could get into the hands of consumers sooner via OEMs making use of the CPUs.
