Even though it is a long way to Intel Tiger Lake, we already see some leaked chips. One has already been chased in 3DMark. Interested in seeing it?
It’s true, Rocket Lake-S hasn’t been released yet, and there is already news about Tiger Lake. That’s something quite normal, because everything is going very fast when it comes to computing, and we have news about Zen 4 with Zen 3 to come. This time, we bring you a new hunt for an Intel Tiger Lake processor, which is the 12th generation. Let’s see what it has to offer.
Intel Tiger Lake with 4 cores and 8 threads at 5 GHz for laptops
The first thing that came to mind was the Ryzen 3 3300X that we tested here. It seems that Intel will have a low-end chip with a very high frequency in the 12th generation of desktop processors. This filtering is done by the famous @_rogame filter.
These are based on a new CPU core called “Willow Cove”, which would yield a higher profit than the “Golden Cove” cores. All Tiger Lake chips are delivered in an advanced 10nm+ process. To put them in context: This process would provide higher performance than the i7-1068NG7.
It appears that this is a Dell laptop that contains this Intel CPU. It comes configured with 4 cores, 8 threads, 2.3 GHz base frequency, and 5 GHz turbo frequency. As expected, it is accompanied by Intel Xe Gen12. We don’t see any TDP data, but it could be about 30W.
It’s expected that this generation will bring a significant increase in performance, at least for laptops. Of course, this chip can offer a lot of leeway for those looking for single-core power. Therefore, it could be a cost-effective gaming option.
Both _rogame, as well as the media that picked it up, are asking not to take these specifications at face value, as we will see more information about these chips soon.
What do you think of this configuration? Do you think a war is brewing at the bottom end?
