Earlier this month, we received sneak peeks at Intel's upcoming Frost Canyon family of NUC 10 Mini PCs. The first leak gave us a listing of all of the upcoming SKUs, while the second leak gave us a look at the slightly refreshed chassis design. Today, however, Intel has officially pulled the wraps off its NUC 10 family, confirming all of the previous leaks (hat tip to FanlessTech). All of the NUC 10 PCs are using Intel's new Comet Lake-U processors, which were first announced over the summer. Comet Lake-U is still built on the latest version of Intel's long-running 14nm process node and is available in Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 flavors for the NUC 10 family. The specific...

Intel might have new Frost Canyon NUCs waiting in the wings, but MSI is ready to deliver right now with the latest update to its Cubi family of small form factor PCs. The newest entry is the Cubi 5 10M, which is backed by Intel's 10th generation Comet Lake processors. Like Intel's NUC family, the Cubi 5 10M is diminutive in stature, measuring just 4.9" x 4.9" x 2.1". Access to the inside of the PC is made possible by four screws on the bottom of the chassis; after which the entire bottom panel can be removed. From there, you'll have direct access to install a 2.5-inch HDD/SSD, or an M.2 SSD. Both SO-DIMM (DDR4-2666 supported up to 64GB) slots are also directly available for... Read more...
Over the weekend, we reported that Intel has a new family of NUC small form factor PCs on the horizon with Comet Lake-U processors. The leak pointed out a number of SKUs with Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processor options available for customers. Today, one of our favorite leakers, momomo_us, managed to find quite a few images detailing Intel's new "Frost Canyon" NUCs. Looking at these images, we're not seeing a drastic design overhaul with Frost Canyon; the chassis design still looks very familiar to those that have been following Intel's NUC family over the years -- including the most recent Coffee Lake-powered offerings.  The biggest change that we spy is on the front panel,...

For those that are fans of Intel's NUC family of small form-factor PCs, we've got information on some new entries to the family that are expected to land early next year. Intel's new NUC 10 family will make use of 10th generation Core processors, and in this case, it looks as though we'll be getting receiving Comet Lake-U based systems. The information was gleaned by momomo_us, who is well known in enthusiast circles for spilling the beans on unreleased products. In this case, the leaker happened upon a slew of NUC 10 systems from, Bottom Line Telecommunications (BLC).  There are 20 individual SKUs listed, with the cheapest being a Core i3 based offering for...

We have been hearing about Intel's upcoming desktop Comet Lake processors for quite some time now, and with there already being mobile variants—we previewed the performance of one in a Dell XPS 13 system rocking a Core i7-10710U CPU—it's a safe bet these new CPUs won't be scrapped. Next year is when they will likely arrive. In the meantime, a new leaks highlights several upcoming SKUs, including a model with 10 cores and 20 threads. In case you have not been following (or have gotten lost in a sea of codenames and manufacturing nodes), let's talk a bit about the Comet Lake architecture. Intel is labeling its Comet Lake CPUs as being 10th generation parts. Even so, they are yet another... Read more...
Intel officially launched its 10nm Ice Lake-U family back in August, and there have been a handful of systems shipping with the power-sipping processors. Among the first OEMs to jump onboard was Dell with the XPS 13 2-in-1 (2019) we recently evaluated. When that refreshed convertible launched, it was available with one of three processors: Intel Core i3-1005 G1 processor (2C/4T, 4MB cache, up to 3.4GHz) Intel Quad Core i5-1035 G1 processor (4C/8T, 6MB cache, up to 3.6GHz) Intel Quad Core i7-1065 G7 processor (4C/8T, 8MB cache, up to 3.9GHz) Not long after those Ice Lake processors were announced, Intel launched its 10th generation Comet Lake-U processors. Dell has since given... Read more...
Back in August, we began hearing a lot more about Intel's next-generation Comet Lake-S desktop processors, which will follow hot on the heels of their Comet Lake laptop counterparts. According to our previous reporting, Comet Lake-S will be available in up to 10-core/20-thread SKUs across 35W, 65W and 125W TDP ranges. Today, we're getting detailed information on one new member of the Comet Lake-S family: the Core i3-10100. As its Core i3 designation confirms, this is an entry-level processor, albeit one with 4 cores and HyperThreading enabled (8 threads). According to a SiSoftware database entry originally uncovered by TUM_APISAK, the Core i3-10100 has a base clock of 3.6GHz, a total of... Read more...
Lenovo is filling out its consumer PC lineup with some updated models today, including a notebook with Intel’s latest 10th generation Core processors. The company has announced a new 13-inch notebook, two new all-one-PCs, and a new gaming monitor. First on the docket is the IdeaPad S540, which features a 13-inch QHD (2560x1600) display rated at 300 nits. Lenovo is giving customers a choice of AMD Ryzen 7 processors or Intel's new 10th generation Core processor (Comet Lake) up to a hex-core Core i7-10710U. For systems equipped with Intel processors, you can either opt for the integrated Intel graphics or an NVIDIA GeForce MX250 discrete GPU. Memory configurations top out at 16GB,... Read more...
Earlier this summer, Dell announced an all-new XPS 13 2-in-1 convertible running Intel's 10th generation 10nm Ice Lake processors. Today, Dell is giving its popular XPS 13 laptop an internal makeover with the addition of another 10th generation Intel processor -- in this case, Comet Lake. Intel officially announced the availability of Comet Lake this morning, and the XPS 13 will make use of four of those processors: Core i3-10110U Core i5-10210U Core i7-10510U Core i7-10710U The Core i7-10710U in particular is an intriguing option for customers, as it is Intel's first hexa-core U-Series processor. The new Comet Lake processors provide a healthy performance boost over... Read more...
Earlier this summer, Intel released a new family of 10th Generation laptop processors based on its 10nm Ice Lake architecture. Those processors top out with 4-core/8-thread CPUs with TDPs ranging from 9W to 28W. Ice Lake was a long time coming, but it shows us a clear path forward with Intel’s arsenal to combat a resurgent AMD with its Zen 2-based processors. Today, Intel is expanding its 10th Gen processor lineup with Comet Lake-based processors. Unlike Ice Lake, however, these new Comet Lake processors continue to be based on existing 14nm++ process technology. A total of 8 processors have been announced covering both Y-Series (as low as 4.5W for fanless designs or as high as... Read more...
For the first time in a very long time, Intel finds itself in a real dogfight with AMD across the board in the consumer sector, from budget CPUs all the way up to enthusiast-grade processors. Not to be outdone by the recent Ryzen launch, Intel might be prepping a new batch of Comet Lake chips as it continues to squeeze everything it can from its 14-nanometer node. Sure, the world is waiting for Intel to blitz the market in significant volume with 10nm CPUs—those are due out in force by the end of the year, though likely with a focus on mobile initially, with 10nm desktop chips to follow in 2020. We will have to wait and see. Meanwhile, AMD just barreled through the gate with its 7nm Ryzen... Read more...
