Intel Launches 10th-gen processors with Native BT.2020 Color Gamut support

Intel has just launched its 10th generation of processors. Dubbed “Ice Lake”, the new chips are company’s first to use a 10nm process which will enable them to be more powerful and energy efficient. Most interesting to followers of Quantum Dot and display technology though, are the updates to the “Iris” graphics SoC that accompanies the new CPUs.

Intel says the latest Iris system doubles performance and includes native support for the BT.2020 color gamut, enabling playback of 4K HDR content with over 1 billion colors.
