Intel has announced at CES 2020 that it will launch the next-generation mobile platform Tiger Lake later this year, using an upgraded 10nm plus manufacturing process (also known as 10nm? Intel has not disclosed any specific specifications for Tiger Lake, but two samples have appeared in the 3DMark test database.
The specific model is not available, but one is identified as Tiger Lake-U low-voltage version, 4 core 8 thread, reference frequency 2.7GHz, refrequency unknown, support lpDDR4/4X memory.
2.7GHz doesn’t look great, but don’t forget the current 10nm Ice Lake-U series, The top 4-core 8-thread model, i7-1065G7, has a base frequency of only 1.3GHz, which doubles, and even the eight-generation U-Series of the mature 14nm process has a maximum base frequency of 1.9GHz.
This shows that the improved 10nm plus process is quite mature, and the reference frequency can be more telling than The Refrequency, of course, the frequency will certainly be significantly higher than the current area of 3.9GHz.
The other is the Tiger Lake-Y ultra-low voltage version, 2 core 4 threads, supports LPDDR4X memory, the base frequency of 1.2GHz, but is only 100MHz higher than the current 1.1GHz, but there may be a higher-end model.
