Intel: the Myth of CPU

I dare say even people who know a little about computers know Intel. Whether you’re on a desktop or a laptop, whether you’re a worker or a gamer, your processor is probably on of Intel and AMD. In fact, founded in 1968, Intel is a global leader in the semiconductor industry and computing innovation. Today, Intel is transforming itself into a data-centric company. If you want to get more knowledge about Intel, please read through this article.


Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC, HKEX: 4335), headquartered in California, USA, has engineering and sales departments and 6 chip manufacturing plants located in Portland, Oregon, USA.

As personal computers spread, Intel became the world’s largest technology giant in designing and producing semiconductors. In fact, it provides building blocks including microprocessors, chipsets, boards, systems and software to the growing global computer industry. These products are part of the standard computer architecture. In fact, the industry uses these products to design and build advanced computers for end-users. Also, Intel claimed to providing the building blocks for the growing global Internet economy in clients, servers, network communications, Internet solutions and Internet services.

Next, I will mainly introduce Intel products from CPU and GPU.


Mainstream CPUs of Intel can be briefly devided into Core i3, i5, i7 and i9. In addition to those most wide-spreaded processors, there are Xeon, Pentium, Celeron and etc., which are not widely implemented due to many reasons. And the number followed represents generation. For example, Core i7-12700 means the 12th generation of i7 processor.

Starting with the tenth generation processor, the i3 / i5 / i7 brand branch remains the same, with a four-digit suffix and a letter. The first two digits means generations, and the third and fourth digits represent the SKU model. The above four-digit SKU model is Ice Lake microarchitecture (tenth generation), while Comet Lake microarchitecture (tenth generation) SKU is five-digit, such as i7-12700.

The letters at the end have vaeious meanings. U: Low voltage. H: High voltage can not be removed, which are usually applied on laptop. S: Low power consumption (65W). T: Ultra-low power consumption (35W/45W). Y: ultra-low voltage. P/F: CPU without graphics card. K: a processor that does not lock the frequency multiplier. In addition, individual letters can also be freely combined, representing cpus that combine both. For example KF, the most popular one nowadays, which refers to CPU dose not lock the frequency multiplier without graphics card.

On September 28, the US local time, Intel’s 2022 “ON Technology Summit” officially opened. At the event, CEO Pat Kisinger took the stage to introduce more than a dozen new products and technologies. As a matter of fact, these include the much-anticipated 13th generation Intel Core processor, the collaborative Intel Geti computer vision platform, and an upgraded computer vision AI model and developer cloud platform.

For a long time in the past, NVIDIA and AMD accounted for the majority of the global gaming graphics market share, it has been difficult to compete with rivals. Intel has tried to enter the race before, but ultimately failed. At a time when Intel’s CPU business is under serious growth pressure and its wafer foundry business is not on track, graphics cards are an important breakthrough.

Back in 1998, Intel tried to develop Gpus on its own and came up with the i740AGP. But before the GPU market reached its current size, Intel’s CPU business was booming. Therefore, they gave up the business. Recently, after the 21st century, Intel also developed a second generation of X86 architecture unique Larrabee. Unfortunately, the performance of this product was not recognized by users, and it was announced to be removed after only one quarter.

In May 2018, Intel announced its return to the unique market, with an expected release date of 2020. However, due to the pandemic, the first high-performance graphics card product Arc was not released until the third quarter of 2021.

In fact, the official price of the Arc A770 announced at the event is $329, which is in line with its mid-to-high-end positioning. On the other hand, the NVIDIA RTX 3060, a direct competitor, is officially priced at $418. Therefore, in terms of cost performance, Intel will be the winner.

However, Intel Arc GPU still unavailable. There is no data on the actual user experience. So what we can do is to wait and see.

I hope no one gets fired for this... - Intel Arc A770 First Look
