Around this time last year, Intel talked a lot about artificial intelligence and also its Lakefield SoC, the industry's first product with Foveros 3D stacking and IA hybrid computing architecture, during the Hot Chips symposium. And this year? Intel is planning more than half a dozen talks at Hot Chips, which will cover its upcoming Tiger Lake CPU and Xe GPU architectures, among other things. Hot Chips is an annual conference that has been around since 1989. It is held every August in Silicon Valley, and these days it typically pulls in more than 500 attendees from around the globe. Presentations that run a half-hour long are the norm at this event (some run longer), and cover a variety of subjects... Read more...
AMD started off 2020 with a bang when it released its Ryzen 4000 processors for laptops, and garnered many design wins. Based on the potent Zen 2 processor architecture, Ryzen 4000 processors are available in up to 8-core/16-thread configurations and with up an 8-core Radeon Vega-based graphics core. Now we’re getting some early insight into the first Ryzen 5000 APUs that will find their way into 2021 laptops. Given that strong response that AMD has already received with Ryzen 4000, Ryzen 5000 could be an even bigger hit for AMD. A newly discovered SiSoftware database entry makes reference to a “Celadon CZN Renoir” platform, which in actually is the next-generation... Read more...
Back in mid-July, Intel sent out a teaser asking the press to "drop in", as it would "have something big to share" on September 2nd. Given what we already know about Intel's processor roadmap, and what we've seen by way of leaked benchmarks (which have increased in frequency over the past few weeks), we reasonably surmised that Intel was talking about its next-generation Tiger Lake CPU architecture. Intel has confirmed this hypothesis via an event calendar that is currently posted on its Investor Relations website. Right there under September 2nd, we see that Intel has penciled in its "Tiger Lake Virtual Launch Event". Unfortunately, clicking the "Additional Information”... Read more...
We are always up for a good old fashioned showdown between AMD and Intel, two tech heavyweights vying for dominance in the CPU space (and beyond). And we sort of get one, courtesy of a benchmark leak highlighting Intel's upcoming Core i7-1165G7 processor, which is part of the chipmaker's unreleased Tiger Lake family. Over at PassMark (via APISAK), the Core i7-1165G7 made a benchmark appearance, posting scores of 13,372 (Average CPU Mark), 3,273 (Single-Thread Rating), and 25,604 (Cross-Platform Rating). Out of those scores, the single-thread score is interesting, because it compares favorably to AMD's Ryzen 7 4800U. Have a look at the comparison... Source: PassMark via APISAK To put these score...

Intel’s 11th Generation Core processors for upcoming notebooks and ultrabooks, codenamed Tiger Lake, are due to arrive sometime in the next few months. Intel has an event planned for early September, at which it’s expected that all of Tiger Lake’s secrets will be revealed. For now, however, much of what has been discussed are preliminary specifications Intel has disclosed or simply rumor and speculation. Among those rumors though, it has been suggested that Tiger Lake will offer some serious performance gains over its predecessors, and if a leak that just hit the web is true, that certainly appears to be the case. The SiSoft SANDRA results database was updated earlier today... Read more...
Intel isn't having much luck in its endeavors with process nodes smaller than 14nm. The company's 10nm lines were famously delayed for years, which forced the company to rely on 14nm for its mainstream- and enterprise-class processors way longer than expected. The upcoming Rocket Lake-S family will hopefully be the last that we'll see of 14nm... at least on the consumer desktop side. Now today, Intel has given us more bad news with the announcement that its 7nm-based products have been delayed by another 6 months compared to the company's previously disclosed launch date. Intel explained in its Q2 earrings report: The company's 7nm-based CPU product timing is shifting approximately... Read more...
Intel has "Something Big" planned for September 2nd, and we have the feeling that it could really shake up the computing market. Intel sent out invites to the tech press today stating that it will be holding a "virtual event" that will showcase how it is "pushing the boundaries of how we work and keep connected". Reading between the lines, and taking into account Intel's previously stated roadmap, there's no doubt in our minds that this is anything but Tiger Lake. As we have discussed on these pages in detail over the past year or so, Tiger Lake is Intel's 11th generation Core processor architecture, and will be based on a refined version of the company's 10nm process node....

There has been a flood of Tiger Lake leaks over the past several weeks (and months, really), and it does not look like they are slowing down. Case in point, a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop sporting an Intel 11th generation Core i7-1165G7 processor with Xe graphics in tow has made another cameo in the Geekbench database. The Core i7-1165G7 is an unreleased Tiger Lake-U processor for ultrathin and light laptops. It is built on Intel's enhanced 10-nanometer manufacturing process (10nm+) and features four Willow Cove processor cores with HyperThreading support (so eight threads). While specifications may change when the chip actually releases, leaks indicate it runs at a 2.8GHz base clock and a 4.7GHz boost... Read more...
Apple yesterday confirmed the rumors that we’ve been hearing in tech circles for years; that it would be pushing Intel aside as its chip supplier for Macs. Instead, Apple has decided to pursue its own processor designs based around Arm architecture rather than x86. There should be some pretty sizable costs savings for Apple by bringing processor design in-house, and it allows for broader compatibility across all of its hardware families, including the ability to run iPhone and iPad apps in macOS 11 Big Sur. The folks in Cupertino are also banking on significant performance-per-watt gains over its currently-deployed Intel-based systems, and future Intel processors in the pipeline.... Read more...
Acer has announced a bunch of new notebooks and desktops aimed at the gaming crowd and those looking for thin & light machines for portability. The first of the machines falls into the Thin & Light category and is called the Swift 5. Acer touts the machine as its newest ultrathin-and-lite notebook that features next-generation Intel Core processors. The Swift 5 features Intel's 11th generation Core (Tiger Lake) processors with onboard Xe graphics, and can be fitted with an optional NVIDIA GeForce MX 350 GPU. Despite the powerful hardware inside the machine, Acer is still able to keep it under 2.2 pounds and only 0.59-inch thick. The computer maker also designed the Swift 5 with a touchscreen...

Go ahead and mark your calendars, just be sure to use a pencil or an erasable pen (and not permanent market), because it looks as though Intel's upcoming Tiger Lake processors will be arriving on July 27. That is the date a pair of Acer Swift 5 laptops with Tiger Lake hardware are slated to launch, according to a couple of product listings at a Dutch retailer. We have been hearing about Tiger Lake for a long time now, and even Intel has talked about its successor to Ice Lake. However, as of this writing, Intel has not formally launched its 11th generation Core processors or announced exactly when they will arrive. We are definitely getting close, though, as earlier this week Intel's Ryan Shrout... Read more...
How many times are we going to spy leaked benchmarks for Intel's upcoming Tiger Lake processors? At least one more time, apparently. Once again, the unreleased Core i7-1165G7 has made a cameo in a benchmark database, this time by hitching a ride on an upgraded Dell Inspiron 7506 2-in-1 system that is also not yet available (as configured). It is actually a pair of benchmark leaks that give us yet another glimpse of the Core i7-1165G7, along with a Core i7-1135G7, both spotted by Twitter user APISAK. The first one comes by way of a UserBenchmark database entry. Have a look... Source: APISAK (Twitter) via UserBenchmark According to the benchmark entry, the Core i7-1165G7 is a 4-core/8-thread processor... Read more...
Earlier this morning, Intel’s Gregory "GB" Bryant and Ryan Shrout had some interesting banter on Twitter regarding a Tiger Lake-based prototype notebook. Shrout teased that he had something “incredibly cool” he wanted to show off, but needed clearance from the top brass to do so. GB (as Bryant is known) appeared to shoot down the request, but that was obviously all in good fun, because a few hours later, Shrout Tweeted a video clip spilling the beans anyway. What the video clip shows is a prototype, Tiger Lake-based, thin and light Ultrabook, smoothly running Battlefield V on Intel’s Xe graphics engine. The game was configured to run at 1080p (1920x1080), with the High-Quality... Read more...
It would not be a Thursday without another Tiger Lake benchmark leak (or a Wednesday or a Tuesday, or any day that ends in "Y"). We have seen a lot of leaked Tiger Lake data over the past several weeks, and this latest one pits an upcoming Core i7-1165G7 processor with Gen12 graphics against AMD's already-launched Ryzen 7 4800U with Vega graphics. Tiger Lake has yet to materialize in finalized form, though Intel must be close to doing so. It sure seems that test systems are already in the hands of OEMs, developers, and possibly reviewers (for the record, we don't have any Tiger Lake rigs on hand). Hence why these kinds of leaks keep appearing, particularly over at 3DMark's database. Part of the... Read more...
Leaks surrounding Intel’s upcoming Tiger Lake architecture have ramped up in recent weeks, culminating with some promising benchmarks surrounding the integrated Xe graphics that will be included. Today, a flood of alleged internal slides have leaked that detail much of the architecture and features that underpin Tiger Lake. For starters, there will be both Tiger Lake-Y and Tiger Lake-U processors available, in a 4+2 (CPU+GPU) configuration. Tiger Lake-Y processor have a nominal TDP of 9 watts, but that can be adjust – per the OEM – from as low as 5 watts to as high as 15 watts. Tiger Lake-U, on the other hand, will have a nominal TDP of 28 watts, with lower setting of 10W and... Read more...
One of the ways Intel is going to make its upcoming Tiger Lake processors purr is with an upgrade in graphics performance. Tiger Lake will debut with Intel's Xe graphics architecture in tow, which Intel promises will deliver a "huge leap" in performance, while perhaps giving us a taste of bigger things to come in the discrete space. While we wait for Tiger Lake, some leaked benchmarks have emerged. More accurately, more leaked benchmarks have found their way to the web. There have been a bunch of Tiger Lake and Xe graphics leaks already, some more promising than others. These latest unofficial benchmarks fall decidedly into the "promising" category, as they seemingly show Tiger Lake trouncing... Read more...
When it comes to unreleased hardware, we can always count on Twitter benchmark sleuths to uncovers prototype hardware making the rounds. In this latest instance, Rogame has discovered additional references to an unreleased Tiger Lake-U processor due later this year. For those that need a refresher course, Intel's Tiger Lake architecture will underpin its 11th generation processor families. While Intel's current 10th generation Ice Lake-U processors are built on 10nm process tech using Sunny Cove CPU cores, Tiger Lake-U will use 10nm+ process tech and feature Willow Cove CPU cores. The specific processor in this latest leak -- which is likely the Core i7-1165G7 -- is showing... Read more...
Intel is planning to release its Tiger Lake CPUs in a few months, and there is nothing Carol (*bleeping*) Baskin can do about it. How do we know this? Intel CEO Bob Swan confirmed the launch time frame during a conference call with investors, in relation to the chip maker's first quarter financial results that were posted yesterday. Swan also suggested this will not be a paper launch, but accompanied by dozens of laptop models. "In the middle of this year, we’ll debut our next-generation mobile processor, Tiger Lake. Using our second-generation 10-nanometer process, Tiger Lake will deliver breakthrough performance, and our customers have more than 50 fantastic Tiger Lake-based notebook... Read more...
Little by little, we are seemingly getting glimpses of Intel's 11th generation Tiger Lake lineup, by way of various leaks and rumors. So it goes today—it has come to attention that over at 3DMark, there is a benchmark entry for what is likely either a low power Tiger Lake-Y processor for thin and light laptops, or perhaps a Tiger Lake-U CPU. The database entry only provides some basic information. Intel has not yet released or even announced specific Tiger Lake SKUs, so it is not unusual for software applications to leave identifying fields blank, or even misreport specifications. In this instance, the CPU in question is shown as being manufactured on a 0-nanometer node with a 0-watt TDP.... Read more...
Intel has been promising that its next-generation Xe graphics cards would be impressive gaming beasts. Earlier this year at CES 2020, Intel claimed that Xe would offer a double-digit performance uplift over the Gen11 graphics found in Ice Lake. Today, we’re getting a good look at what kind of performance that Xe will deliver thanks to a leaked benchmark of a Tiger Lake processor. This unnamed Intel mobile processor is pitted against the Ryzen 9 4900HS, which is the flagship member in AMD’s new Renoir mobile chip family.  The Ryzen 9 4900HS is an 8-core/16-thread processor with base/boost clocks of 3GHz and 4.3GHz respectively. Also on deck is a Vega 8 GPU... Read more...
Back in January we brought you news of Intel's NUC 11 family that is in the product pipeline. At the time, we were made privy to the "standard" Panther Canyon family and its more enthusiast-oriented Phantom Canyon counterpart. Today, however, FanlessTech has provided an update on the launch timetable for the NUC 11 family of mini PCs. According to an Intel roadmap update, both Panther Canyon and Phantom Canyon are on track to launch during the second half of 2020. This new information lines up with what we already know about Tiger Lake, as Intel has reaffirmed on multiple occasions that its 11th generation 10nm+ processors would ship during the latter half of 2020. Intel... Read more...
Intel has been refreshingly honest about its beleaguered progress with the 10nm process node, which was delayed many times, allowing AMD to gain an advantage with its 7nm Zen 2-based family of processors. With that being said, Intel does have 10nm Ice Lake processors currently making the rounds in the notebook segment, and its 10nm+ Tiger Lake processors are on track for release later this year. The company was even more frank today about the status of its 10nm process node at the Morgan Stanley Tech, Media & Telcom conference this week. Intel CFO George Davis warned that 10nm is not going to be this big savior for the company’s chip operations. This is despite the fact that... Read more...
