Chipset manufacturer Intel recently launched its new Intel Lakefield processors with Intel Hybrid Technology. The new processors will allow the company to compete with ARM processors. The Lakefield mobile processor combines the performance of a hybrid CPU with Intel’s Foveros 3D packaging technology. This gives the setup a thin form factor, allowing companies to implement the chip to make slimmer devices.

Built on the 10nm process, the new processors get a reduction in standby power, as well as the area and height compared to earlier chipsets. The Intel Lakefield processors feature a 56 percent smaller package area and up to 47 percent smaller board size along with extended battery life. Despite this, the new processors still feature full compatibility for Windows 10. Further, the native dual internal display pipes make the processors ideal for dual-screen devices, a rising trend in the tech domain.

Further, the flexible GPU engine enables the chip to sustain high-throughput interference applications, including AI-integrated implementations like upscaling the resolution of images. The Gen11 graphics are also claimed to deliver up to 1.7 times better performance. This lets you convert video clips 54 percent faster and support up to four external 4K displays. There is also support for Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Intel LTE, which will let users experience seamless video conferencing and online streaming.
The new Intel Lakefield processors are already coming with at least two devices this year. These are the Samsung Galaxy Book S, and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, which was unveiled at CES 2020. Both the machines will be available later in 2020, with the Galaxy Book S expected to be available later this month.
