One of the most highly anticipated hardware releases pegged for 2020 is Tiger Lake. Tiger Lake is the follow-up to 14nm Comet Lake and 10nm Ice Lake in the mobile processor realm, and is built on a refined 10nm+ process node.  The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) has the scoop on some early examples of Tiger Lake that are currently being shipped to system integrators. The EEC listing references two SKUs: UMTU5KIS2B and UMTU5KIS3B. The former references a “Tiger Lake Si Only Upgrade Kit", while the latter is said to be a "Tiger Lake Si Only Upgrade Kit (Beta) Development Kit". It would make sense that Intel is sending out these development boards so that its partners can begin the... Read more...
It's been over two years since Microsoft unveiled the Surface Book 2, and it looks as though the company is ready to move on with a new generation. The Surface Book 2 is running some seriously outdated -- by modern standards -- hardware including 7th generation Intel Core processors Pascal-based NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics. However, the next-generation Surface Book 3 is finally coming into focus thanks to 3DMark benchmark leaks. The listings were found by reliable leaker _rogame, who a number of configurations for the convertible. The first configuration features an Intel Ice Lake-based Core i7-1065G7 processor (4 cores/8 threads) and a GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q GPU. Another configuration... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about Intel's 11th generation Tiger Lake processors recently, and the company is tipped to launch the product line during the second half of 2020. Today, we're getting an early look at what kind of performance Tiger Lake will bring to the table when it launches. Benchmark sleuth TUM_APISAK uncovered Geekbench 5 results for a 4-core/8-thread Tiger Lake-U processor clocked at 2.3GHz. There's not much else to speak of on the hardware side of things other than to point out that this particular system is configured with 16GB of DDR4 memory. As for the Geekbench scores, the unidentified Tiger Lake-U processors manages to deliver single-core and multi-core... Read more...
It was just back in November when Intel officially launched its Frost Canyon NUC 10 family powered by 10th generation Comet Lake-U processors. But today we're already getting a look at their successors, and as you might imagine, they're powered by Intel's next-generation Core architecture. According to a fresh leak from FanlessTech, Intel will be releasing Panther Canyon and Phantom Canyon NUC 11 machines, and both will be powered by 11th generation Tiger Lake-U processors complete with Intel's much ballyhooed Xe graphics architecture. Panther Canyon is the more "mainstream" NUC 11 and will be spec’d accordingly: Processors: Tiger Lake-U (28w)... Read more...
Early yesterday morning at CES, Intel gave us a sneak peek at its upcoming Comet Lake-H mobile processors, which will boast up to 8 cores/16 threads and hit boost clocks of 5GHz+. But Intel saved perhaps the most interesting (and important) processor news for last night, when it gave a demo of working Tiger Lake silicon on stage during its keynote address. Tiger Lake is the successor to Ice Lake, and is built on a refinement of Intel's 10nm microarchitecture (10nm+). Intel hasn't given any specific timetables for the launch of Tiger Lake, but previous roadmaps have indicated that it will launch during 2020, and slides from last night's presentation stated that is "coming soon". Intel's... Read more...
CES 2020 is just kicking off, and Intel is making the rounds with some new product releases that are sure to entice on-the-go gamers and content creation types out there. The company announced that its OEM partners will soon be shipping laptop systems powered by 10th Generation Comet Lake-H processors. These Comet Lake-H processors are rated with TDPs of up to 45 watts, and are still based on Intel's 14nm++ microarchitecture. This announcement is targeted at beefing-up the top-end of Intel's dominant mobile CPU stack as AMD readies its Ryzen 4000 series offering for announcement later today. For now, details surrounding these new chips are a bit thin at this point but there are some high... Read more...
Intel's first Tiger Lake processors, which are based on the 10nm process node, aren't expected to debut until the latter half of 2020. However, that isn't stopping early engineering samples of the chips from making an appearance in popular benchmark software. In this case, benchmark entries in both Geekbench 5 and SiSoftware were uncovered by TUM_APISAK. The Geekbench entry shows a 4-core/8-thread processor operating with a base clock of 1.19GHz. Given the "Y" designation, the low clock speed shouldn't be too surprising, as these are ultra-low power mobile processors. Intel's Y-Series typically have a TDP in the 9W range, even lower than the 15-25W U-Series. We're also expecting 12MB of L3 cache... Read more...
Intel is set to give its mobile processors a major bump in L3 cache starting with its Tiger Lake-U lineup due out next year, according to newly leaked data. Assuming the information is accurate, Tiger Lake-U will see a 50 percent increase in L3 cache, going from 8MB to 12MB. That breaks down to 3MB of L3 cache per core on a quad-core CPU (up from 2MB currently). L3 cache is essentially a slower version of L2 cache, but is much faster than a system's main memory. It used to be built into the motherboard. These days L3 cache resides on the CPU itself and is shared across all physical cores—in this case, each core would get a 3MB chunk of the 12MB allotment. L3 cache can improve performance... Read more...
Last week, we brought you news of an alleged new Xeon-based NUC coming from Intel that is being developed under the codename Quartz Canyon. This would be the first in Intel's long line of NUC small form-factor PCs to feature a Xeon-class processor. Now we're learning of another new NUC in the pipeline, and it's called Phantom Canyon. Phantom Canyon will reportedly be powered by Intel's upcoming Tiger Lake processor architecture (4 cores, 8 threads), which is a 10nm+ successor to the Ice Lake processor that are just now rolling out of the gate. Tiger Lake will again have a new CPU architecture, and more importantly, it will feature Intel's new Xe graphics core. Intel Hades... Read more...
