Intel announces its 'Comet Lake' series of 10th Generation Processors

Intel 10th Generation 'Comet Lake' Specifications and Project Athena

This generation, there will be some major differences between Intel's U-series and Y-series parts, with the Y-series of low-TDP components lacking support for DDR4 and LPDDR4 memory. With Y-series Comet Lake CPUs, only LPDDR3 is supported. The U-series will be much more versatile, supporting DDR4, LPDDR3 and LPDDR4X. It will be up to notebook makers what individual notebooks support. 

Intel has confirmed that none of these platforms will support PCIe 4.0, which means that only PCIe 3.0 will be supported. Intel has not revealed when they plan to release PCIe 4.0 compliant hardware. 

With Comet Lake Intel promises up to 16% better overall performance and up to 41% more productivity performance than their last-generation U-series parts. We will include Intel's performance disclaimers below to show how Intel created this data. 

 

    Up To 16% Better Performance Vs. Previous Gen as measured by SYSmark2018 Overall Score. Intel Preproduction Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 -10710U (CML-U 6+2) PL1=25W, 6C12T, Turbo up to 4.7GHz, Memory: 2x16GB DDR4-2667 2Rx8, Storage: Intel® 760p M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD with AHCI Microsoft driver, Display Resolution: 3840x2160 eDP Panel 12.5”, OS: Windows* 10 19H1-18362.ent.rx64-Appx59. Power policy set to AC/Balanced mode for all benchmarks except SYSmark2014 SE which is measured in AC/BAPCo mode for Performance. Power policy set to DC/Balanced mode for power. All benchmarks run in Admin mode & Tamper Protection Disabled / Defender Disabled, Graphics driver: PROD-HC-RELEASES-GFX-DRIVER-CI-MASTER-2334-REVENUE-PR-1006952-WHQl. vs Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-8565U (WHL-U4+2) PL1=15W TDP, 4C8T, Turbo up to 4.6GHz, Memory: 2x16GB DDR4-2400 2Rx8, Storage: Intel® 760p m.2 PCIe NVMe SSD with AHCI Microsoft driver, Display Resolution: 3840x2160 eDP Panel 12.5”, OS: Windows* 10 19H118362.ent.rx64-Appx59. Power policy set to AC/Balanced mode for all benchmarks except SYSmark2014 SE which is measured in AC/BAPCo mode for Performance. Power policy set to DC/Balanced mode for power with UX Slider set to Better Performance. All benchmarks run in Admin mode & Tamper Protection Disabled / Defender Disabled, Graphics driver: 2019-1006577-WHQL.

Intel announces its 'Comet Lake' series of 10th Generation Processors  

With the release of the company's 10th Generation Comet Lake processors, Intel has confirmed that their 14nm mobile 10th Generation processors will be available in Project Athena systems. This means that both Comet Lake and Ice Lake processors will be available in Athena-based systems. 

Intel has stated that Project Athena is a set of specifications, which means that 14nm Intel processors can be used with Athena systems if the notebook can meet the spec's performance and power consumption targets.
