Intel 10th Generation Processors Explained

Intel 10th Generation Processors

Intel’s 10th Generation Lineup is confusing. It’s not just the naming scheme that is difficult to comprehend but also the fact that Intel is using multiple architectures with different fabrication nodes (14nm & 10nm) in the same generation. Before we get into the details, let me just clear the basics: The 10th Gen Intel Processors use two different microarchitectures, one is the refresh of Skylake (14nm) and the other is based on Intel’s latest Sunny

AMD Renoir Ryzen 4000 APUs

For a long period of time, we haven’t seen a big jump in the performance of Laptops. The first blame for that goes to Intel for refreshing its 2015’s Skylake Architecture multiple times without any major improvements. The second blame goes to AMD for not being competitive enough. But now, it’s 2020, and things are about to change. We did see a performance jump with Intel’s 10th Generation Ice Lake CPUs through IPC improvements and

Kirin 990 Benchmarks & Performance Review

Kirin 990

In September 2019, Huawei launched its new flagship devices Mate 30 & 30 Pro. These smartphones are powered by Huawei’s latest Kirin 990 chip. With Kirin 990, Huawei has gone with a Dual-SOC approach by making one chip with 5G Modem for 5G smartphones and the other one for non-5G devices. Apart from the 5G Modem, these chips differ in some other aspects as well. The 5G variant of Kirin 990 is fabricated using TSMC’s

Helio G90T Review: Best Gaming SOC in Mid-range?

MediaTek Helio G90T

When Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 8 Pro with Helio G90T, there was a lot of debate on whether it can compete against the Snapdragon 712 or not. Even in 2019, many users are skeptical about MediaTek products and this is primarily due to a bad experience with another low-end MediaTek device sometime in the past. One of the main concerns was power efficiency and device heating due of TSMC’s 12nm Node which is nowhere

7nm vs 10nm vs 14nm: Fabrication Process

7nm 10nm 14nm Fabrication Process

“7nm, 10nm, 12nm, 14nm, 16nm….” You’ll generally find this number when you’re going through the specs of Semiconductor devices like a Processor. Product reviewers and Tech Experts talk about this number like its a big deal. So, what exactly is this nanometer number? Well, as a consumer, all you need to know that this number represents the size of transistors (or components) in a Processor (We will get back to the actual meaning later). The
