Intel Touts Tiger Lake Power, Efficiency

Posted on August 13, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Hardware, Mobile with 24 Comments

As part of its Architecture Day 2020 virtual event, Intel today announced its Tiger Lake architecture, which should leapfrog AMD’s modern Ryzen offerings and be marketed as 11th-generation Core processors.

“When we integrate our next-generation Willow Cove CPU architecture with our 10-nm SuperFin technology, the result is the incredible new Tiger Lake platform,” Intel senior vice president Raja Koduri explains. “The upcoming Tiger Lake system-on-chip architecture provides a generational leap in CPU performance, leadership graphics, leadership artificial intelligence (AI), more memory bandwidth, additional security features, better display, better video and more.”

In keeping with its recent delay of 7-nm chipsets, Tiger Lake is still a 10-nm design, as noted in the quote above. But it will also be the first Intel chipset to utilize its new-generation Xe integrated graphics, which will provide what Intel says is “more than a generational improvement” in graphics performance and should be an adequate replacement for a dedicated graphics card for most users.

Tiger Lake chipsets will also be much more energy-efficient than their predecessors, Intel says, and it will support Thunderbolt 4.
