Big-Time Entertainment in Remarkably Thin and Light Designs

New 10th Gen Intel® Core™ U-Series and Y-Series Processors

With 10th Gen Intel® Core™ mobile processors, it’s now possible to enjoy incredibly immersive entertainment on a remarkably thin and light laptop.

10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor-powered systems featuring the latest Intel® Iris® Plus graphics1 take a huge leap forward in gaming, streaming and creativity, pushing a smooth, detailed and vivid experience on highly portable devices. But the entertainment experience isn’t the only leap forward for 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors: They also pack battery life optimized for marathon work and play sessions, built-in intelligence features designed to help you get more done, easier than ever before, and the latest in wireless and wired standards for incredibly fast connectivity. 10th Gen InteI® Core™ mobile processors bring big-time entertainment—and much more—to ultra-portable devices.

Built for the AI Software of the Future

Stunning Entertainment
For such thin and light devices, systems powered by 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with the latest groundbreaking improvements to Intel® Iris® Plus graphics pack hugely immersive entertainment. These systems let you play popular games like [Battlefield V*] at 1080p with smooth frame rates, and stream 4K HDR video in all its vivid and detailed richness. They can even handle 4K video editing and high-res photo-processing like a pro—fast, while retaining high visual quality—both previously a stretch for thin and light devices.

Intelligent Performance
10th Gen Intel® Core™ mobile processors optimize built-in intelligent performance features that make it possible for your PC to quickly learn and adapt to what you do. Built for the AI software of the future, a laptop powered by a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor gives you the PC experiences you’ve always wanted, like automatic photo masking and quick application of video filters. You can get more done on an intelligent PC that’s ready for the software of today and tomorrow.

Fast, Flexible, and Easy Connectivity

Best Connectivity
Systems powered by 10th Gen InteI® Core™ mobile processors feature best in class wireless and wired standards for fast, flexible, and easy connectivity. Intel® Wi-Fi 62 (Gig+) PCs and routers enable ultra-fast, ultra-responsive connections for browsing, streaming, gaming, or working, even in environments with many connected devices. Thunderbolt™ 3 technology3—the fastest USB-C available—allows you to connect multiple peripherals, docks, displays, and even power using a single cable at lightning-fast speeds.
