Practice English Speaking&Listening with: Intel What Are You DOING!? Ice Lake Lineup Is A Huge Mess!

Difficulty: 0

well you guys probably guessed it because there's no way Intel was gonna

take all of those AMD product launches lying down right I mean if you're here

to learn more about their new desktop processors look away right now because

you guessed it I'm here to talk about mobile CPUs again that means the ice

lake architecture Gen eleven graphics and ten nanometer manufacturing process

are almost sort of here I mean you'll be able to buy them starting November

supposedly and honestly if you thought Intel's lineup was confusing before just

wait till they see what they've cooked up now to set the stage let's do a

little test here are four of Intel's newest processors and pause if you have

to because I'd like you to write them down in order of the highest performance

to be lowest and we'll discuss about them later in the video with that done

I'm going to try to make some sense of Intel's lineup right after a quick

message from our sponsor with long battery life an nvidia MX150 GPU and

Intel Core i7 processor in a compact design the Razer Blade stealth 13 is a

great companion for users on the go if you want more gaming her hook it up to

the core X EGP you would support for both AMD and NVIDIA GPUs the Razer Blade

stealth plus the core X the ultimate power couple all right so let's get

right into this with a quick explanation on how Intel and AMD usually launch

their processors so little give you a rough idea on why we haven't seen Intel

respond to Ryzen 3000 series yet so basically AMD launches their desktop

processors first and noble processors last what that means is they're noble

processors are a generation behind their desktop ports intel does things a lot

differently unlike AMD intel's mobile processors are

at least a generation ahead of what desktop users can remember the

coffee lake CPU's on the desktop actually use an architecture that was launched

almost two years ago so I guess that brings me to ice Lake and if you thought

Intel's last gen lineup was confusing this one is absolutely ridiculous I

can't believe this is happening again and it gets even worse I mean Intel what

are you really trying to do to us I mean this this is what we're dealing

with so this is Intel's version of an alphabet soup a mishmash of letters and

numbers and yeah it's call me i7-1068g7 what what

I'll try to explain so the i7 the i5 or the i3 it's supposed to tell you the

general performance level after that well things take a turn for the worse so

the ten part of this number means that it's Intel's 10th generation architecture

but there are some exceptions and I'll mention that a bit later so the next two

numbers tell you the relative performance versus other parts in Intel

selenium for example as 68 will perform better than a 65 right but to add a bit

more complication to this any CPU ending in five or eight will belong to the u

series family while a name ending in zero puts it into an ultra-low voltage Y

Series lineup finally any CPU with G in its name will have the new gen 11

graphics architecture the g7 has 64 execution units g4 has 48 and the g1 has

32 remember these new graphics cores are pretty important to Intel supposedly a

gen 11 GPU with 64 use can't perform equally to an NVIDIA MX150 that's good

news for Intel but bad news for NVIDIA we actually looked at that GPU in

razor's blade stealth and concerning that notebooks form factor it was pretty

impressive in fact if you're interested in a full performance analysis you can

check it out right over here now imagine that kind of performance from an even

thinner and lighter system well that's what Intel's after so let's dive into

this confusing lineup starting with the u series which actually don't have the

letter U anywhere in the name anyways the lineup includes six processors from

i7 to i3 with the i7 and i5 having four cores and eight threads while the i3 has

to course other than clock speeds the main difference between I7 and i5 CPU's

is the amount of cache asked for the integrated graphics well that's all over

the place and you can start seeing why this lamp is so damn confusing

while the i7 has the full 64 execution unit layout the i5-1035 series can have

either 64 48 or 32 he use the i3 only has about 32 years oh and did you notice

that 1035 CPU yeah there are three of them guys all different graphics configs

and clock speeds another thing you'll notice is how low the

mark speeds are even though the TDP values haven't improved over the

previous generation if we take that 28 1 I7 out of the picture the base

frequencies barely stay above a gigahertz the single and all core turbo

speeds are a bit better but in general they're between 300 and 900 megahertz

slower than the previous generation so what does that mean

it looks like Intel needs to rely on architectural improvements to carry

isolate instead of clock speeds personally I think there will be a minor

performance difference between 9th and tension CPUs in regular workloads but I

might be wrong you never know you just never know and I'm gonna be really

honest here I think Intel might be in a bit of trouble because it looks like 10

nanometer can hit the same frequencies as the older 40 nanometer process you

see with AMD and their launch of the Ryzen 3000 series CPUs they were able to

switch over to seven nanometer while maintaining or offering better

frequencies now I'm sure that's on the desktop side but at least it's worth

mentioning alright so back to the lineup with the Y series Intel's most efficient

low-power notebook CPUs are popped into this lineup and there's some exciting

stuff here but also some bad news it's great to see fork or a thread

ultra-efficient CPUs but TDPS have climbed significantly from 5 to 7 watts

on amber Lake y to 9 to 12 watts on ice Lake sure you're getting a lot of GPU

horsepower but I'm interested in knowing if you guys see this as a benefit or

sacrifice now about those base clocks well it's like we're back in the Athlon

thunderbird days guys and here's a virtual cookie to anyone who gets that

reference luckily the turbo and GPU clocks are per

decent even when compared to the previous generation so remember that a

little quiz I gave you at the beginning of this video well here's a list again

and based on what you know let's put this in order from the fastest to the

slowest so the i7-1065g7 is to first since it's part of the u series and has

4 cores and 8 threads next is the i-5-1035g7 not to be honest

did anyone really guessed that well what about the other i7 remember what I said

about the low power and low performance why series not having a 5 at the end of

its name well here it is good people performance

on this one will be less than the i5-1035g7 finally there's the i5-1030g7

which is also a fork or a third processor in the y series and it's also

the lowest performing of the processors that I've shown here now Intel also

mentioned that these new processors will have support for Wi-Fi 6 and terrible 3

but ultimately it is up to the manufacturers to add those features into

their designs I mean it's nice to have them as marketing bullet points but

that's about it so this is the problem that I see right

now Intel's names are so damn long that they actually stopped using the letters

U and Y those actually help folks understand the differences between the

different series of processors and a number most people who are investing

their hard-earned money into these notebooks aren't gonna watch this video

and definitely aren't as tech savvy as you and me and the amount of confusion

that this is gonna cause it's it's an absolute mess guys actually - what

having gone through all of this right now I'm done I'm done
