Intel officially held a press conference last night, introducing Intel’s product planning, packaging, process technology, CPU core micro-architecture, GPU planning and many other content in the next few years. It can be said to be very comprehensive. Among them, the next generation of processing should be the most concerned. Tiger Lake.
Intel Tiger Lake has not only adopted a new architecture codename, but its type has also changed from CPU to SoC. This change covers desktop and mobile. After all, with the improvement of integration, future CPUs should gradually become SoC.
This product uses Intel’s new 10nm SuperFin process, so the frequency is higher, and Intel has added new security features to it.
The CPU part of Tiger Lake uses the Willow Cove core, the GPU is replaced by Xe-LP, and the huge LLC (L3 cache) and non-contained L2 cache are used, so the cache has become a lot larger. The new IO system supports USB 4.0 and Thunderbolt 4, PCIe 4.0, and memory can support DDR4-3200/LPDDR4X-4266 and LPDDR5.
In terms of nuclear display, Tiger Lake’s integrated Xe-LP GPU has up to 96 groups of EUs and the highest frequency can reach 1.65GHz, so the graphics performance will be greatly improved. It can support DP1.4, but there is no native HDMI 2.1 support.
Overall, Tiger Lake’s progress is still relatively large, and will gradually become a mainstream product in the market.
