At the CES 2019 conference early last year, Intel announced for the first time new 3D Foveros stereopackage technology, as well as the first processor based on the technology, codenamed Lakefield. A year and a half later, the chic processor has finally been released, officially known as the Intel Core With Intel Hybrid Technology with hybrid technology.
Intel Lakefield uses Foveros stereoscopic packaging technology, hybrid CPU architecture, to deliver superior performance, comprehensive Windows compatibility, and office and content creation experiences in the form of ultra-lightweight, innovative devices.
It is the first Core processor to integrate PoP integrated package memory, the first Core processor with power consumption as low as 2.5mW, and the first Intel processor to natively integrate dual-internal display lines, ideal for folding and dual-screen devices.
Thanks to the stereoscopic package and ultra-high integration, the entire processor is only 12 x 12 x 1 mm in size, which is not as large as a regular coin.
Lakefield’s interior can be divided into four layers, the top layer is the PoP integrated package LPDDR4X memory, the maximum capacity of 8GB, the maximum frequency 4267MHz, the second layer is the P1274 10nm process manufacturing computing layer, the internal includes CPU core, GPU core, display engine, Cache, memory controller, image processing unit (IPU), etc., the third layer is the base layer of P1222 22nm process manufacturing, the internal including I/O input and output unit, safety module, ISH, EClite, etc., low cost, low leakage rate, and at the bottom is the package layer.
It also externally extends the xMM 7560 4G baseband, PMIC power management unit, Wi-Fi 6 AX200 wireless network card, and more.
The CPU core includes a large core of the Sunny Cove architecture (Ice Lake family), four small cores of the Tremont architecture (Atom family), responsible for front-office, background tasks, and designed a dedicated hardware scheduling mechanism to integrate within the operating system and support real-time communication between the CPU and the operating system scheduler to run the right load on the right core, optimize performance and energy efficiency.
Intel claims that by adding a large core, it can improve performance by up to 33 percent compared to four small core networks and up to 17 percent more energy efficiency.
It’s worth noting that Tremont Small Core naturally does n’whichtoted hyperthreading, and Sunny Cove Big Core, while supported, is not turned on here, so the whole five core five threads.
Compared to the ultra-low power i7-8500Y (TDP 5W) of the eight-generation Core family, Lakefield’s package area is reduced by up to 56%, standby power consumption is reduced by up to 91%, energy efficiency is up to 24%, single-thread performance is up to 12%, graphics performance is up to 1.7 times higher, and GPU AI performance can be improved by more than 2x.
The Lakefield family has two models, all of which are five cores, one of which is core i5-L16G7, CPU part of the base frequency 1.4GHz, the full core Turbo frequency of up to 1.8GHz, the single core Turbo frequency up to 3.0GHz, the UHD nuclear display part integrated 64 execution units, frequency 500MHz, thermal power design of 7W.
The second is the Core i3-L13G4, CPU benchmark, full-core Turbo, single-core Turbo frequency will be to 0.8GHz, 1.3GHz, 2.8GHz, nuclear display execution unit reduced to 48, other ibid.
The first three Intel Lakefield processor-based products, including the Samsung Galaxy Book S, will be available in some parts of the country from June, lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Fold is the first laptop with a collapsible OLED display, the CES 2020 to be released later this year, and Microsoft’s Surface Neo dual-screen device will be available later this year.
