A 10 nm Intel Tiger Lake processor was recently discovered in the user benchmark database. However, it is important to use tips to determine the performance results, as Userbenchmark does not currently have the best reputation.
The Tiger Lake processors are the successors of the Intel Ice Lake (ICL) chips that have not yet come to light. The Tiger Lake processor family will be produced on Intel’s 10 nm processing nodes and will most likely be equipped with the next basic Willow Cove architecture and Xe graphics. Ice Lake will use the Gen11 graphics processing unit (Generation 11), while Tiger Lake will use the Gen12.
According to the UserBenchmark entry, this is a Y-series chip, essentially a low-power Tiger Lake chip designed for thin, compact portable devices. The presence of the Gen12 LP graphics engine (low power) and the use of LPDDR4x memory support this theory.
An unknown 4-core Intel Tiger Lake Y processor is shown
The unknown Tiger Lake Y (TGL-Y) processor has four cores and eight threads work with a 1.2 GHz base clock and can go up to 2.9 GHz. At first glance, the operation of clocks can seem disappointing. However, it could be a technical piece, so there’s still room for improvement. In addition, UserBenchmark points out that the Tiger Lake chip was used 83% of the time, so the enhancement clock could be significantly higher.
Compared to the Coffee Lake i7-8559U quad-core processor, the Tiger Lake Y chip appears to be only 4%, 2%, and 8% slower for single-core, quad-core and multi-core workloads respectively. When it comes to competition, the Tiger Lake processor is said to be 24% to 26% faster than the AMD Ryzen 7 3750H quad-core CPU in single-core and quad-core testing. It only lags behind the Ryzen 7 3750H in the 1% multicore test.
Reports have indicated that Tiger Lake will supplement the Y and U Series chips with a maximum of four cores.
