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.
