Intel's First 10nm Processor Lands In China

Intel's much-anticipated, and oft-delayed, 10nm processors have popped up in a Lenovo Ideapad 330, which is a low-end notebook that comes with 4GB of memory and a 500GB HDD, at Chinese retailer JD.com.

The dual-core Core i3-8121U sports the Cannon Lake architecture, but the integrated graphics are either disabled or not present. As a result, the notebook comes with RX540 graphics. We followed up with Intel, which confirmed that the chips are only on sale in China. The company won't share a specific date for possible U.S. distribution, but it shared the full specs of the new processor.

Intel has long been known for its aggressive cadence of transitions to smaller process nodes, but the 10nm process has proven to be its biggest challenge in recent history. Intel first planned on delivering processors based on the smaller process in 2015, but now it has pushed high volume manufacturing back to 2019 due to yield issues that make the end products too expensive for mass production.

Intel's 10nm Core i3-8121U now detailed in ARK database

Still without IGP

Intel has now officially updated its ARK database with the recently unveiled Core i3-8121U mobile CPU spotted in the Lenovo Ideapad 330.

While the Core i3-8121U was nowhere to be seen back when it leaked in the Lenovo Ideapad 330, Intel has now silently added it to its ARK database. Unfortunately, other than the confirmation that this is indeed a 10nm Cannon Lake mobile CPU, we don't have any further explanation for the lack of the integrated graphics.

According to the processor database, the Core i3-8121U is a dual-core CPU with four threads, 2.2GHz base and 3.2GHz maximum turbo frequency, 4MB of cache and a 15W TDP. It supports up to 32GB of DDR4-2400 memory in dual-channel, supports Intel Optane memory, Turbo Boost 2.0, and all the usual instruction set extensions like SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX, AVX2, and AVX-512.

Bear in mind that the same CPU was also previously spotted in Intel's Crimson Canyon NUC and paired up with Radeon 550 mobile GPU with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, at least in the SKU that was leaked online at German WinFuture site.

Doesn't seem like a big deal compared whats out there now, I think that Ideapad is a cheap model also.
