    What tangible reasons for using it do they have?
    Use lots less power for starters in a laptop? It's more symbolic as I can't remember the last time everybody had a process advantage to Intel. I mean everybody else will shortly be using 7nm for their processors...EXCEPT Intel

    The Iris 650 at max boost was 1.8/0.9tflops if wikichip is accurate, so the new chips will be ~20% quicker (on paper). The quote in the article from Intel about being 'up to a 1.8x performance uplift' is presumably in a weird edge case.

    It's a huge advantage to be on a smaller process. Power consumption, production cost, density, etc.

    It definitely isn't the only factor that matters in chip design but it isn't just marketing.

    Re: Intel unveils its 10nm Ice Lake mobile processors

    Doesnt intel 10nm equal others 7nm tho? I hope these chips filter out real quick OR AMD gets its fingers out and starts competing in the low wattage market. I have to wait for these to arrive, then get into NUCS, then get into low cost designs in China.. if china still be allowed ...

    In feature size, yes. But other's 7nm seem to be good for desktop parts etc, Intel's 10nm only seems good for mobile parts so they aren't really directly comparable. Intel's 7nm vs the rest of the world 5nm should be more interesting.

    Just to expand on that a little further, I believe that the density of Intel 10nm is like others 7nm but the performance is like others 10nm. i.e. the stuff that users care about - power and performance, intels 10nm is like othes 10nm. For stuf that Intel, AMD etc care about - die size and thus cost to manufacture, Intels 10nm is like others 7nm.
