Intel Comet Lake-powered Google "Hatch" Chromebook hits Geekbench
Back in November 2018, Chrome Unboxed had revealed that Google was working on a Chromebook with a 10th generation Intel Comet Lake chipset inside. The codename mentioned back then — "Hatch" — has just surfaced once again, but this time on Geekbench.
The well-known benchmark database contains a listing for a "Google Hatch" device that has been uploaded earlier today and shows the results that were generated while running Android 9.0 Pie. The single-core score is 4,037 and the multi-core performance translates to 7,028 Geekbench points, but the more interesting part of the aforementioned listing is the processor of this next-gen Google Chromebook.
According to Geekbench, the processor inside the Google Hatch is a dual-core one — the brand-new Intel Core i3-10110U. The specs of this low-voltage part include a base frequency of no less than 4.1 GHz, 32 KB of L1 instruction and data cache (each, not combined), as well as 256 KB L2 and 4 MB L3 cache.
Previous rumors also mentioned a display with a 3:2 aspect ratio and 2,400 x 1,600 pixels — the same specs as the screen of the two-year-old Google Pixelbook. Obviously, all these should be taken with a grain of salt for now. Google still has to confirm the launch date of the new portable, but if Evan Blass turns out to be right once again, the Hatch will open in a month — on October 15, to be more accurate.
