A Geekbench score of the Intel Core i7-1065G7 'Ice Lake' running on the HP Spectre x360 convertible laptop is now available and seems to indicate very strong single-core performance that can rival processors much higher TDP such as the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X. Intel's 10nm could offer a significant advantage over AMD at least in the laptop segment with even more improved IPCs.
Right now the node seems to be limiting it, otherwise Intel would have desktop processors slated for this year.
or it could be like broadwell, it would be a regression to sub 4.2ghz clocks so if intel sells this at higher price while having similar or worse oc ability I see them losing more marketshare now if these can overclock beyond 3.8ghz then intel could price them at whatever they want (wasnt/isnt their advantage the clock speed during 2017-2018?)
Intel confirmed a 18% IPC increase over Skylake. They also stated these Ice Lake U notebooks have 16 hours of video play back.
Yeah, I would like to see what power settings the video playback was done with. I mean, yeah, if you don't let it turbo then the battery life must be pretty amazing. It's when the CPU turbos that I have reservations and doubts.
