Comet Lake

Comet Lake is Intel's codename for the fourth 14 nm Skylake process-refinement, following Whiskey Lake for U-series mobile processors and Coffee Lake for desktop and high-performance mobile processors. Intel announced low power mobile Comet Lake-U CPUs availability on August 21, 2019.[2] Intel announced 10th generation Intel Core H-series mobile SoCs on April 2, 2020.[3]
