Laptops with Intel-based 10nm Ice Lake CPUs to be available mid-November
The i915 graphics driver for Ice Lake's Gen11 graphics is considered stable as of upcoming kernel version 5.2 and MESA git has tagged Gen11 graphics support as complete for both the i965 OpenGL driver and the ANV Vulkan driver. This means that Intel engineers have been working with Ice Lake samples for quite some time.
Intel announced that Ice Lake chips will be shipping to OEMs in June during their recent investor presentation and promised that "The Ice Lake platform will take full advantage of 10nm along with architecture innovations. It is expected to deliver approximately 3 times faster wireless speeds, 2 times faster video transcode speeds, 2 times faster graphics performance, and 2.5 to 3 times faster artificial intelligence (AI) performance over previous generation products."
Intel expects OEMs products to be "on shelves for the 2019 holiday season" which typically translates to mid-November.
