Intel finally launched some Ice-Lake CPUs (they are Laptop CPUs btw, mostly for U and Y series CPUs). The base clocks are very low on these CPUs but they appear to have finally raised the IPC on their CPU as well (around 17% if I remember correctly), I thought they be stuck on Skylake forever at the rate they were going.
The integrated GPUs are a lot faster so they actually have something that can actually compete with the Ryzen APUs on more than just CPU performance. And if the Linux drivers are as good as Intel CPUs and integrated GPUs usually are, then it will probably be better suited for Linux than Ryzen Mobile is.
I am actually somewhat impressed at this point that Intel is still pushing 2C/4T CPUs to be frank though. Granted it’s only 1 SKU and is probably best suited to being a sub-10W CPU so not that big of a deal.
Are we talking about single threaded or multithreaded? I have a hard time believing that is multithreaded performance unless the 6-Core part is thermal throttling or something but for single thread it’s very plausible.
Can i just say how god freakin’ awfull those names are? How is ANY normal consumer supposed to know in store what the heck they are buying? 1065G7 or 1068G7 os a difference of 1Ghz in Baseclock. That’s HUGE. What the hell.
