At this year’s CES show, Intel officially announced the second generation of 10nm processor Tiger Lake series, still u and Y versions for low-power mobile processors, with a new architecture, Willow Cove, with double-digit performance improvements (more than 10%) The GPU core section uses a new Xe architecture, specifically the Gen12 core.
The Gen12 core on Tiger Lake is important to Intel because it is not only about set-up, but also unique to the development dG1 currently on display, with Gen12 being 96 EU units and 768 stream processors, the main gap being the frequency and TDP power consumption caused by thermal limitations. This is also the reason why the previous DG1 performance test spree is erratic.
In the database of the Sisoftware website, information about the Tiger Lake processor was exposed again on February 5th, a comparison of recognitions and performance testing.
As can be seen from the figure, this is a Tiger Lake-U series processor, the specific model has not yet, with LPDDR4X memory, the core display has 96 EU units, 768 stream processor, frequency 1.2GHz, with 4GB of memory to do memory.
Tige Lake’s Gen12 core display floating-point performance will reach 1.84TFLOPS, almost on both sides of the Gen11 core display of the Tenth Generation Core Ice Lake processor, which is about twice the current Gen9.5 core performance.
1.8TFLOPS performance is already equivalent to the performance of the Sony PS4 host, after all, the latter is also nearly 5 years ago products, the use of the unique has fallen behind, by the latest generation of GPUs beyond is not surprising.
The 1.8TFLOPS performance of the Tiger Lake processor is not good for desktop performance, but Tiger Lake is mainly used in the notebook market, its performance will be the current use of low-power graphics card MX 150/250/350 series of serious threats, because once Intel’s Gen12 core performance comes up, notebook manufacturers do not need to be equipped with additional unique, not only cost savings, but also reduce the power consumption of the entire machine, improve the battery life.
