New chips boast ‘double-digit’ performance gains

Intel has today announced eight new mobile processors as part of its 10th-generation 'Comet Lake' architecture, boasting improved performance and features.

The newly-announced parts range from Core i3 to Core i7, with a maximum of six cores and a maximum boost clock of 4.9GHz at the top end. The lineup includes four U-Series chips, typically found in high-end ultrabooks such as the Dell XPS 13 and Apple MacBook Pro, and four lower-powered Y-Series chips, which are often used in more thermally-conservative fanless designs.
