Recently, hackers from Intel to get a large number of documents, which are very rich in content, there are future product planning, there are a variety of published or unpublished product drivers, BIOS and other documents, there are product specifications and so on. The first leak slot we have now contained a presentation called “ww18-20-intel-mobile-business-5q-nda-roadmap-with-wm.pptm” will include Intel’s roadmap for its mobile platform for a look in the coming quarters.
The first is a product line for enterprise customers.
Starting with Tiger Lake, the original -Y series was changed to UP4, the original -U became UP3, -H series unchanged, and the -G series, which is a product in partnership with AMD, was cut off (as we all know).
Starting with Tiger Lake, the U-Series processors will offer two power options, the UP3 and UP4 as mentioned above, with the UP3 with a power range of 15 to 28W and the UP4 with a power range of 7 to 15W.
It is important to note that the packages of the two series are not the same.
Looking at the road map, the current ultra-low voltage processor family Amber Lake-Y will enter EOL at the end of this quarter (Q3), replaced by Tiger Lake-UP4, comet Lake-U has a very long life cycle, and the new V2 version of LPDDR4 has been shipped in the last quarter, and the next two versions will be in parallel.
Tiger Lake will not start its life cycle until the fourth quarter, which means that the September 2 release should still be on paper, and the real purchase of Tiger Lake products will not be available until After October.
The other worst is the standard pressure end, that is- the -H processor. Comet Lake-H will now be used until the end of the second quarter of next year, and due to the Tiger Lake-H extension, Rocket Lake-U not knowing whether to cancel or postpone, Comet Lake-H will be solely supporting Intel’s mobile high-performance end.
The UP3 series has a processor lineup like the one above, and the more frequent Core i7-1185G7 is the change from the Ice Lake-U series, and the strongest of the Ice Lake-U era should be the core i7-1068G7 that apple is custom-made.
On the Y/UP4 series, there will be no more 14nm products next year.
With the Product Line of Xeon W and Core H, the Core i7-10875H is basically on its own.
Next is a roadmap for consumer-grade products, which are not really much different from commercial ones, and it’s worth noting that there are -N-series product lines, known as Atom processors.
In addition, Tiger Lake’s UP3 and UP4 series have different power ranges than the commercial version, with the UP3 being 12 to 28W and the UP4 being 7 to 15W (PPT says so, a bit of a match).
For specific products and models, Ice Lake is a consumer-only range that will be completely replaced by Tiger Lake in the future.
Let’s be more than Tiger Lake, whose new features include Xe GPU, Thunderbolt 4 and PCIe 4.0.
Tiger Lake UP3 will have 4 directLY connected TO the CPU PCIe 4.0 channel, the future low-voltage book alone can finally not squeeze the OPI bus, can be paired with some good performance alone.
In addition, Tiger Lake has improved in video decoding, as shown in the support of 8K30, 10-bit AV1 decoding, HEVC and VP9 decoding specifications rose to 8K60, 12-bit.
This PPT contains essentially that, and you can see that Intel will rely on Tiger Lake in the second half of this year and the first half of next year, so they take the platform very seriously, as reflected in its own launch.
The standard pressure end, in a short period of time may rely on the TDP to 35W of the quad-core Tiger Lake to cope, the eight-core Tiger Lake-H delayed to know when, so this year to next year, the product has the advantage of AMD on the mobile end is to swallow a large share.
