Distinction of Ice Lake and the 10th generation Intel Core Comet Lake

Intel issued a 10th generation processor, aimed at mobile devices. One of the laptops is fast and power-efficient, as well as a slim and lightweight laptop design and 2 in 1 design.

The name code of ICE Lake becomes the first, and the space is less than a month, and Comet Lake appears. So the Intel Gen 10 family has two name codes. And here are the differences between Intel Comet Like and Ice Lake.

Ice Lake

The first 10 generation Intel processors are made with a 10nm process. In numbering, the Ice Lake processor series concludes with "Gx", it shows an Intel Ice Lake processor with integrated graphics. The number after G shows the level of the chart, with the "G7" highest.

The Ice Lake Generation offers high graphics capabilities, bringing intelligent AI features and fast connectivity.

AI faster

Intelligent AI Performance with Deep Learning Boost is claimed to be accelerating the neural network on the CPU to maximize responsiveness for intensive tasks such as automatic image enhancement, photo indexing and play around with photorealistic effects. Intel claims the DL Boost gives Ice Lake an increased CPU performance of 8x when compared to its competitors.

Calculates up to 1 teraFLOPS GPU engine for sustained high-throughput inference applications such as video stilization, analytics, and real-time video resolution improvements.

The Intel® Gaussian & Neural Accelerator (GNA) delivers dedicated engines for background workloads such as sound processing and extremely low-power noise cancelling, for maximum battery life.

An example of AI usability, can sharpen a photo that was initially blurry.

New graphics

The standout feature of Ice Lake is the increased graphics performance with the new graphics engine gen11 and better (thanks to Intel Iris Plus). This will increase the GPU of laptops that do not have a dedicated GPU.

With Intel Iris Plus, Ice Lake's CPU can improve gaming performance, which is claimed to be able to handle some relatively seamless games at 1080p resolution. Create top-notch content such as 4K video editing even with HDR, faster video filter apps, and high-resolution photo processing. Everything can run smoothly.


Intel Ice Lake is possible to embed up to four Thunderbolt 3 ports. Note Thunderbolt 3 offers speeds up to 8x faster than US 3.0.

It supports Intel WI-FI 6 GIG +, which comes with almost 3x faster speed than on 802.11 ac WI-FI.

Intel Ice Lake Specifications

There are 11 Ice Lake processor chips, it comes in the Core i3, i5, and i7 variants. Here are 11 such chips.

Judging from the numbering, this is not clearly distinguishing, which is the U-series and which is the Y-series.

The Lake

Different from Ice lake, this time Comet Lake in production with 14nm process. It was created as a refinement of Whiskey Lake, primarily in terms of strength and efficiency. Comet Lake is an Intel Gen10 tailor-made to deliver improved productivity and scaling performance for multithreaded workloads.

Comet Lake comes with increased performance and higher clock frequencies. However, there is no Intel iris plus so the graphics are lower. And the absence of Deep Learning Boost in AI performance. The connectivity is still the same as the Ice Lake, Thunderbolt 3 and Wi-Fi 6.

In numbering, you can distinguish between Comet Lake U and Y series more easily. The image describes the comet lake numbering, as well as the difference between Ice Lake and Comet Lake.
