    Ahead of Intel’s COMPUTEX Opening Keynote on May 28, the company today previewed products that deliver a significant boost in real-world workload performance, including a sneak peek at the company’s new 10nm mobile processor (code-named “Ice Lake”) and the special edition 9th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-9900KS processor – both shipping this year. The company discussed how performance leadership in the new data-centric era of computing will be defined beyond the traditional core count and frequency. Through the power of software, Intel® Architecture is optimized for real-world workload performance leadership that scales for today’s and tomorrow’s computing experiences.Intel is driving this performance leadership with its redefined product innovation model, delivering workload-optimized products by combining technical innovations across six pillars: process and packaging, architecture, memory, interconnect, security and software.

    “For every order of magnitude performance potential of a new hardware architecture there are two orders of magnitude performance enabled by software. Intel has more than 15,000 software engineers working to optimize workloads and unlock the performance of Intel processors,” said Raja Koduri, chief architect and senior vice president of Intel Architecture, Software and Graphics.

    Below are examples of the performance boost to real-world workloads for this new data-centric era:

    Ice Lake providing mobile graphics boost: As unveiled early this month during Intel’s Investor Meeting, the company will begin shipping its first volume 10nm processor, a mobile PC product code-named “Ice Lake.” Intel’s new Gen11 graphics engine in Ice Lake is enabling the industry’s first integrated GPU to incorporate variable rate shading capability by applying variable processing power to different areas of the scene to improve rendering performance. In addition, across a number of popular games, including CS:GO*, Rainbow Six Siege* and Total War: Three Kingdoms*, Gen 11 graphics are expected to nearly double1 the performance compared with Intel Gen 9 graphics, for stunning visual experiences on the go.

    Heterogeneous computing architectures bring intelligent performance: Intel is realizing the benefits of heterogeneous computing for both client and data center in current products through its architecture design and I/O innovations. Ice Lake is a new highly-integrated platform for laptops, combining the new “Sunny Cove” core architecture and the new Gen11 graphics architecture with both Thunderbolt™ 3 and Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) integrated for the first time, providing best-in-class connectivity. This will also be Intel’s first processor designed to enable artificial intelligence (AI) for PC — leading with Intel® Deep Learning Boost (DL Boost) on the CPU, as well as AI instructions on the GPU and low power accelerators — to usher in a new era of intelligent performance for PCs. On top of showing Ice Lake accelerating the workloads that people do every day, such as image deblur and stylizing videos, the company also demonstrated how Intel DL Boost can offer up to 8.8 times2higher peak AI inference throughput than other comparable products on the market, as measured by AIXPRT.

    For data-centric platforms, the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors are the only processors with built-in Intel DL Boost AI accelerators, combining vector neural network instructions and deep learning software optimizations. With Intel DL Boost, 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors accelerate AI inference workloads including image-recognition, object-detection and image-segmentation by up to 14 times4 when compared with the previous generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor.

    Compared with one of the commonly used GPUs in the market now, 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors provide up to 2.4 times performance3 on a recommendation system, one of the most popular AI workloads in the cloud today that accounts for over 60% of data center inference5.

    New special edition desktop gaming processor: Intel previewed the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900KS special edition processor, the first to feature all 8 cores running at a turbo frequency of 5.0 GHz, making the world’s best gaming desktop processor even better.

    Intel also showcased how the company is optimizing ultimate real-world performance on the most popular games running on Intel processors with both hardware and software innovations. Through the years, Intel has optimized hundreds of games by working with hundreds of thousands game developers.

    More leading performance examples at Intel COMPUTEX Industry Opening Keynote: Gregory Bryant, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group, will go into more details on Intel’s performance innovations and new experiences during his COMPUTEX 2019 Industry Opening Keynote on May 28. More details, including a livestream of the keynote, will be available in the Intel Newsroom.

    Of course they would announce a better model two months after I picked up the 9900K.

    Intel could be afraid of new AMD's Zen2 architecture (7nm), specially with all those security vulnerabilities around.

    Intel number series is approaching the last four digit numbers in decimal. These are in business for quite a while now. 9th gen now.

    Following those last number trends I believe there's still room for improvement up to i9-9999X or, in theory, even i9-9999Z...

    I'm curious to what follows next.
