Hot, as in they come packing remarkable performance. It is very interesting that it took Intel this long to get it right, but they seem to have a winner in the upcoming Tiger Lake line of CPUs.
These new processors are set to be unveiled in a few days.
But details and benchmarks have leaked out before the chip giant officially announces its 11th generation U-series processors during its September 2 event. The firm promised something big for the gathering, and we now have an idea of what that something big is.
Based on the 10nm+ manufacturing process, these chips promise to deliver double digit gains for the company’s new Xe graphics architecture.
Before we get the official lowdown, this listing for a Core i7-1185G7 is creating some buzz for itself. It is likely the top SKU of this new lineup, and as can be seen from the benchmarks, clocks a base frequency of 2.99GHz, and a boost frequency of 4.79GHz.
Things get even more interesting when you see that the Gen12 graphics boosts 96 execution units, up from the 64 units that made up the Gen11 Iris Plus graphics of the Ice Lake processors. The baked in GPU is clocked at 1.55GHz.
All combined, these numbers point towards impressive improvements in not just clock speeds for the Tiger Lake CPUs, but also some notable performance upticks.
Which is good, as Intel needs all the help it can get to take on the competition.
