Intel Core i3-10110U
The Intel Core i3-10110U is a power efficient dual-core SoC for notebooks based on the Comet Lake (CML-U) generation and was announced in August 2019. Compared to the similar Whiskey Lake processors (e.g. Core i3-8145U), the only difference is support for higher memory speeds (DDR4-2666 vs 2400) and two additional cores in the top model (not in this i3, which only has two cores). The processor cores are clocked between 2.1 to 4.1 GHz (all 4 cores 3.7 GHz max). Thanks to HyperThreading 4 threads can be used. More information on Comet Lake and all the models and articles on it can be found here.
Thanks to the high clock speeds, the processor performance of the i3-10110U should be slightly better than the old Core i3-8145U. With only two CPU cores, the processor is however still only positioned in the entry level and has limited power for multitasking.
The integrated graphics card however is still the same as in the previous generations. It should be still called Intel HD Graphics 620 and clock from 300 - 1000 MHz in the i3. Furthermore, the SoC integrates a VP9 and H.265 de- and encoder and an integrated dual channel DDR4-2666 / LPDDR4x 2933 / LPDDR3-2133 memory controller.
The chip is still produced in the 14nm++ process as Whiskey Lake. The TDP (PL1) is specified at 15 Watts but can be varied from 10 to 25 Watt from the manufacturer (cTDP up/down) resulting in different performance (especially Turbo durations).
