The first benchmarks of Intel’s 10nm processors have already come to light and it has been thanks to SiSoft Sandra’s servers, and it seems that they come directly from Lenovo’s test laboratories. The processor under test is the Intel Core i3-8121U and it will be inside the Lenovo 81EY IdeaPad 330-15ICN. This is Intel’s first chip using the new process, so for all practical purposes, Intel has hit 10nm in 2018. It will be different if we can buy them.

Intel has been stuck in the 14nm production pipeline for years and looks like it’s going to stay that way because of the various issues they’re running into getting to 10nm. The company’s initial planning to launch products is to start with laptop processors, then continue with desktop processors and finally launch higher-performance ones. Intel says that its biggest challenge has been to launch the first product under this process, the Intel Core i3-8121U.

SiSandra benchmarks tend to leak, but today’s is special since after knowing the existence of this processor we can know its performance. Lenovo may be putting the last few tests on the laptop before showing it off at Computex 2018.

The score obtained by this processor in the benchmark is 142.13 Mpix/s, placing it above 57.12% of the CPUs tested. The tests to which he has been subjected are:

  • Full multimedia: 178.72 Mpix/s
  • Multimedia Long Integer: 62.34 Mpix/s
  • Media 64-bit Integer: 1.11 Mpix/s
  • Media float: 162.53 Mpix/s
  • 32-bit multimedia float: 98.85 Mpix/s
  • 64-bit multimedia float: 4.28 Mpix/s

This processor has two cores and four threads at 2.2 GHz, with a boost of 3.0 GHz. The cache memory of this processor is 512 KB for the L2 level and 4 MB for the L3 level, and the TDP is of 15 W. The score of this chip is quite good considering its performance. The processor does not have an integrated graphics card.

The Lenovo processor that integrates it combines this 10 nm processor with the dedicated AMD Radeon RX 540 2 GB graphics, with 8 GB DDR4 RAM, 1 TB HDD at 5400 RPM and a 256 GB SSD. The price of this equipment will be about 434.90 euros.
