Tiger Lake identifies the next generation of Intel 10nm processors destined for fanless notebooks and ultraportables and waiting for the market in 2020, as emerged last April | Intel, no 10 nm on desktop at least until 2022 | and as subsequently confirmed by Intel itself during the last Investor Meeting 2019, an event that saw the producer illustrate the new roadmap | Intel: 10nm processors in June, switching to 7nm in 2021.
To confirm that the debut of the new Intel platform is not so far away, the first signals are coming from the SiSoftware Sandra database, well-known benchmark and diagnostic software that is updated with the first data concerning the performance of the Tiger Lake Client platform.
For the moment there are no details on the name of the processor used in the benchmark (not recognized by the software), however from the available information we can hypothesize to be in front of a chip with low consumption, very probably a new Intel model at 10 nm of the series Y with TDP 5 watts.
As shown in the screenshot above, we are facing a dual-core processor with a frequency of 1.8 GHz (base?), A feature that suggests an ultra low-voltage solution for fanless systems.
However, the Intel Tiger Lake series will also identify the next U line processors (TDP 15-28 watts), much more interesting in terms of performance, thanks to a new Core architecture (Willow Core) and a graphics component based on Intel Xe GPU architecture , obviously in an adapted variant that should fit into the next iGPU Gen12 family.
