Intel Cannon Lake CPUs have been rumored for some time now and while the 10 nm process has been delayed time and time again we are getting rumors that chips based on the 10 nm process will be available before the end of the year, or at least in limited quantities. Having that said, it seems that Intel Cannon Lake CPUs with 2 cores will not be coming with integrated graphics out of the box.
We have seen a 2+0 model that means that it is based on the same 2+2 die but does not include the graphics cores. These chips will be for the entry-level market according to the specifications. All things considered, it will be interesting to see what kind of performance these chips have to offer as compared to AMD Ryzen Mobile as well as other entry-level chips that we have seen in the market and those that are coming out.
On the other hand, we also have the U series of Coffee Lake chips that also offer low power and are pretty impressive when it comes to power delivery. But these do come with integrated graphics. We also have the Intel chips that come with AMD Vega graphics so there are a lot of options to consider when buying from AMD.
Talking about U series of CPU, AMD also has some U series chips coming out, the 2500U as well as the 2700U. If you are interested in checking out the U series from AMD then you can check out some of the benchmarks below:
All things considered, the AMD chips have a lot of power to offer as compared to Intel HD graphics and can even compete to some degree with entry-level dedicated graphics cards.
Let us know what you think about Intel Cannon Lake CPUs and whether or not you are interested in getting one of these chips when they come out.
