Intel: Launch of the 11th generation Tiger Lake

Intel: Launch of the 11th generation Tiger Lake

It’s finally here, the 11th generation of Intel: Tiger Lake. Proposing improvements in all areas Intel intends to regain the mobile “leadership” that has been contested by AMD’s Renoir recently.

New CPU and GPU architectures

Intel launches at the end of this year, a new generation of processors, named Tiger Lake. All the architectural details had already been presented a few weeks ago at the Intel architecture day. Today we offer you a summary of this information and some performance figures, especially in comparison with the previous generation and the competition.

Intel Tiger Lake

The 11th generation has 4 cores 8 threads for the low-power mobile range (U and Y are replaced by UP4 and UP3 respectively) using Willow cove cores up to 4.8 Ghz.

The new Intel graphics architecture is incorporated. For the occasion, Xe is officially launched, amounting to 96EU and 1.35 Ghz (against 64EU and 1.1 Ghz for gen 11). The promise here is to double the performance compared to the previous generation. This new iGPU now allows to play in 1080p in good conditions (more than 60 FPS).

We also have a new memory controller, which for the moment supports up to 64GB of DDR4-3200 and 32GB of LPDDR4X-4266. Nevertheless, support for the LPDDR5-5400 should arrive soon. Tiger Lake and also the first mobile processor to introduce Thunderbolt 4 and PCIe 4.0.

The range consists of 9 processors divided into 2 categories:

The UP3 with 4 references, from the i3 1110G4 to the i7 1160G7. We are here on ultra low power consumption with low frequencies and TDP adjustable between 7 and 15W.

The UP4 with 5 references, from i3 1115G4 to i7 1185G7. We are again on low power, but these versions have higher frequencies and TDP compared to the UP3 versions. The TDP can be set between 12 and 28W depending on the desired performance level.

Promising performance

Intel Tiger Lake

Thanks to this new generation, Intel sends a strong message by announcing high figures in several benchmarks. Tiger Lake would be 24% to more than 173% higher than AMD Renoir. These results are obtained on applications such as the Office suite or photo/video editing software. Moreover, these performances would be delivered by being on the mains but also on the battery. For example with the 1185G7 the difference in performance would be minimal with 5% less on battery, while on a 4800U the difference would be more than 38%.

On the gaming part, nice numbers are also announced. Here again Intel will totally dominate AMD, with up to 80% more performance with the i7 1185G7 compared to the R7 4800U.

Of course, these “official” numbers are to be taken with a grain of salt. We’ll have to wait for the first independent tests, but the Tiger Lake processors are very promising for the mobility field.
