Tiger Lake-H, Intel’s next CPU is leaked
In September, Intel began distributing its new 11th generation Core platform. Codenamed “Tiger Lake”, they are manufactured in 10 nm++ manufacturing processes known as “SuperFin” and represent a major generational leap due to their redesign at the transistor level; a 20% increase in process performance; new batch integrated graphics based on Intel Xe (Gen12); new memory controller and the latest connectivity technologies, PCIe 4.0, Wi-Fi 6 or Thunderbolt 4.0.
Following the strategy of previous platforms, Intel released the Tiger Lake with the low-voltage “U” series with the aim of balancing performance and autonomy and aimed at ultraportable models, convertible, 2 in 1, AIOs or mini-PCs, which are already being marketed by major PC manufacturers.
The “U” series limit the offer to processors with 4 cores and 8 threads. Despite its new features, including increased IPC, it is obvious that Intel needs something more for stronger laptops. They compete with AMD’s Ryzen that offers processors with 8 cores and 16 threads.
According to some leaks, Tiger Lake-H has 8 cores and 16 threads, and in the tests, it works at 2.75GHz on average. It is manufactured in the ‘Willow Cove’ architecture, made in the aforementioned 10 nm Superfin silicon node. Its TDP consumption is 45 watts which are aligned with the high-performance processors for laptops of previous generations.
Tiger Lake-H, Intel’s next CPU is leaked. If the Intel Xe “U” Series GPU includes models with up to 96 execution units, the Tiger Lake-H is limited to 32 units, at least from what we have seen so far. The explanation lies in the fact that these versions are focused on offering the maximum performance of the CPU and will be combined with dedicated graphics.
