Intel's 10th Gen, 10nm Ice Lake CPUs: everything you need to know

Intel has a lot to prove. 2018 marked the chipmaker's 50th anniversary, but it was also a year that shook the company to its core. It was the year that Intel lost its CEO, struggled with Spectre and Meltdown, and reportedly lost Apple's confidence as far as chips for future Macs are concerned. Above all, it was the year the world finally realized Intel processors had hit a wall, after yet another failure to shrink its circuits down to the "10 nanometer" process node.

But now, after years of delays, the company is about to bring its first real batch[*] of 10nm CPUs to the world. Today, the company is officially taking the wraps off its 10th Gen Intel Core processors, codename "Ice Lake," and revealing some of what they might be able to do for your next PC when they ship in June.

[*] 18% IPC improvement *loud coughing* compared "against the Skylake cores the company released nearly four years ago!"

Also at AnandTech and Tom's Hardware.

    Glue a coin centrally on top of the noisy fan. It'll increase the rotational inertia, and make it less prone to wobble, which is most of the loud fan noise I've encountered. Of course, it makes it harder to start too, and you don't want that failure mode.

    I don't necessarily advise this variant, but it worked for me in a sparcstation for years, I just used blu-tak to attach the coin, which permitted me to fine-tune its central location, and once it was absolutely central, there was no centrifugal force trying to remove it.

    Cool thought - might try that someday.
