Today, Intel officially launched 11 new, highly integrated 10th Gen Intel Core processors designed for remarkably sleek 2 in 1s and laptops. The processors bring high-performance artificial intelligence (AI) to the PC at scale, feature new Intel Iris Plus graphics for stunning entertainment and enable the best connectivity with Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt 3. Systems are expected from PC manufacturers for the holiday season.
“These 10th Gen Intel Core processors shift the paradigm for what it means to deliver leadership in mobile PC platforms. With broad-scale AI for the first time on PCs, an all-new graphics architecture, best-in-class Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt 3 – all integrated onto the SoC, thanks to Intel’s 10nm process technology and architecture design – we’re opening the door to an entirely new range of experiences and innovations for the laptop,” said Chris Walker, Intel corporate vice president, and general manager of Mobility Client Platforms in the Client Computing Group.
“The 10th Gen Intel Core processors are foundational to Intel’s journey in enabling uncompromising and workload-optimized PC platforms with performance leadership across all vectors of computing. In addition to performance and responsiveness gains, AI, graphics, connectivity and I/O are optimized on the SoC for a solution that delivers a feature-rich suite of capabilities for OEMs to create laptops for people to watch, game and create more,” the company said in a statement.
The 10th Gen Intel Core processors are said to be the first purpose-built processors for AI on thin-and-light laptops and 2 in 1s. “They deliver the intelligent performance needed for modern AI-infused applications, with a suite of features and capabilities,” the company said. These include Intel Deep Learning Boost, a new, dedicated instruction set that accelerates neural networks on the CPU for maximum responsiveness in scenarios such as automatic image enhancements, photo indexing, and photorealistic effects.
Up to 1 teraflop of GPU engine compute for sustained, high-throughput inference applications like video stylization, analytics, and real-time video resolution upscaling. Intel Gaussian and Neural Accelerator (GNA) delivers a dedicated engine for background workloads such as voice processing and noise suppression at ultra-low power, for maximum battery life.
With double the graphics performance, 10th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Plus graphics make a reality gaming in 1080p and higher-level content creation, like 4K video editing, quick application of video filters and high-resolution photo processing on the go. These are the first GPUs from Intel to support VESA’s Adaptive Sync display standard, which enables a smoother gaming experience across games like Dirt Rally 2.0 and Fortnite.
Based on Intel’s Gen11 graphics architecture, they are also the industry’s first integrated GPU to incorporate variable-rate shading for improved rendering performance. With support for the BT.2020 specification, watch 4K HDR video in a billion colors. Increased board integration helps PC manufacturers innovate on the form factor for sleeker designs with Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) connectivity and up to four Thunderbolt 3 ports — the fastest and most versatile USB-C connector available.

Ten individually addressable RGB LEDs are encased in a panoramic light bar that provides unobstructed wraparound illumination, for fantastic RGB lighting from any viewing angle.
Available in gunmetal and white color variations, the module’s distinctive dual-tone solid aluminum heat spreader efficiently conducts heat away from your system. When fitted to compatible AMD motherboards, VENGEANCE RGB RT automatically configures to the maximum supported speed of your system, delivering faster load times, multitasking, and more, all without any tinkering in BIOS. Whether you’re an experienced PC builder or a first-timer, VENGEANCE RGB RT combines stunning looks and great performance, with simple AMD-friendly compatibility.
VENGEANCE RGB RS features an impressive performance on both Intel and AMD DDR4 motherboards. Six individually addressable RGB LEDs are incorporated in their own panoramic light bar, smoothly diffusing RGB lighting for vivid preset or custom lighting effects. An aluminum heat spreader efficiently disperses heat during even the most strenuous tasks, so you can push your memory to the limits without breaking a sweat. VENGEANCE RGB RS also supports Intel XMP 2.0, activating higher frequencies and performance with simple one-setting installation and setup.
Both VENGEANCE RGB RT and RS continue the legacy of high-frequency performance and reliability for which CORSAIR memory is world-renowned. Utilizing a custom PCB for high signal quality and stability, each memory chip is carefully screened and selected for performance and overclocking potential. Both modules’ RGB lighting is massively customizable through CORSAIR iCUE software and can be synchronized with all iCUE-compatible devices throughout your setup for stunning lighting effects across the iCUE ecosystem. For remarkable DDR4 performance in a striking new design, VENGEANCE RGB RT and VENGEANCE RGB RS will visualize, synchronize, and mesmerize.
