Intel gave a look at the next-generation CPU architecture Tiger Lake at CES earlier this year, which will be introduced later this year as Ice Lake’s successor, using an improved 10nm plus process and upgrading the CPU core to Willow Cove. Compared to the previous generation has a double-digit performance improvement, and will use the Xe graphics architecture, there is not much information about it, but from the latest leaked performance score, its nuclear performance exceeds AMD’s recently released 7nm Renoir Ryzen 4000 series mobile processor.
Twitter user @_rogame found a 3DMark running score for a Tiger Lake-U engineering sample, a quad-core eight-threaded, 96-EU 12th generation nuclear display, TDP 28W, with a base frequency of 2.7 GHz, the frequency of 2.8GHz, it is clear that the turbo has not been set up, with 8GB LPDDR4x memory, although do not know the frequency of this nuclear display, but its graphics performance is even better than the Ryzen 9 4900HS.
It looks for 35W Ryzen 9 4900HS to compare, this reference uses 16GB DDR4-3200 memory, CPU test Ryzen 9 4900HS is 64% faster than Tiger Lake-U, after all, core number crushing, but graphics card performance Tiger Tiger Lake’s Xe core is 10% faster than AMD’s Vega Core, and ryzen 9 4900HS uses the Vega 8 core, which has eight sets of Cu, 512 stream processors and a core frequency of 1750MHz.
It is clear that the design ideas of the two CPUs are different, AMD’s Renoir is significantly smaller than the previous generation GPU, the CPU size doubled, and Tiger Lake is to keep the CPU size unchanged, greatly increasing the GPU size.
