Windows 10 on Arm is starting to gain more traction, thanks to a bevy of new systems based on Qualcomm's Snpadragon 8cx high-performance mobile SoC, and its second-gen follow-on which was just announced. Those laptops have all been defined by two common traits: exceptional battery life with still a few lingering app compatibility issues. Some app developers have been reticent to get on board the Arm-64 express and Microsoft is yet to enable emulation for 64-bit x86 applications, which limits overall compatibility. However, when an app does have a native Arm binary performance is solid, and the system's battery life can literally last for days. Though it's taking time, the always-on always-connected...

I will admit, I am an impatient person, which can have its challenges when writing about unreleased technology. For example, we all know Intel is getting ready to launch its next-generation Lakefield CPUs. But how will they perform, what impact will Lakefield's graphics have, and when exactly can buy a laptop with Lakefield inside? Those are all questions that are frustrating left unanswered for the time being, though yet another benchmark leak perhaps provides some clues. This time around, it is an upcoming variant of Samsung's Galaxy Book S laptop that gives us a peek at one of Intel's Lakefield processors. The folks at NotebookCheck got their mitts on one, and ran it through some benchmarks.... Read more...
Today is the official launch date of a rather special Intel processor: Lakefield. We heard the first rumblings about Lakefield back at CES 2019, and Intel would go on to detail its Foveros 3D chip packaging, Sunny Cove high performance core along with four Tremont efficiency cores (all built on 10nm process tech), and Gen11 graphics. With the official launch today comes concrete details on the two chips that will be available to OEMs for ultra mobile devices: Intel's Core i3-L13G4 and the Core i5-L16G7. Both of the SoCs feature a total of 5 cores, which is perhaps an odd arrangement for an Intel processor, with another notable being that there isn't HyperThreading support. Both... Read more...
Back in August 2019, Samsung announced its thin and light Galaxy Book S laptop, which ditched traditional Intel x86-64 processors in favor of a more power efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx SoC. The octa-core SoC allowed the device to run Windows 10 respectably and given its Snapdragon architecture, it came with standard 4G LTE connectivity.  A few months later in October 2019, Samsung confirmed that it was working on an Intel Lakefield version of the Galaxy Book S. At the time, Samsung said that this would be the first Lakefield device to hit the market. Well, according to the company’s Canadian web store, that statement was apparently correct. A Galaxy Book S featuring... Read more...
Trying to keep your head above water when navigating Intel's many 'lake' product names is no easy task, especially as we brace for more of them to show up. Intel 10th generation Comet Lake-S (14nm) desktop CPUs are right around the corner, and so are 11th generation Tiger Lake (10nm) mobile processors. Those tend to dominate the headlines, but today's leaked benchmark news focuses on Lakefield. What exactly is Lakefield and where does it fit into the land of lakes? Lakefield is a mobile client platform leveraging Intel's Foveros 3D stacking technology. About the size of a fingernail, Lake is an entirely new class of chip with a package area measuring 12mm x 12mm x 1mm. It's also a hybrid CPU... Read more...
There's been lot of talk about Intel's 14nm Comet Lake and 10nm Tiger Lake processor architectures in recent months, but there's another revolutionary chip architecture also waiting in the wings: Lakefield. Lakefield uses Intel's Foveros 3D stacking technology and is built on the 10nm process node. Tech sleuth TUM_APISAK located a UserBenchmark score from a previously unseen Core i5-L16G7. The "L" designation seemingly references its Lakefield roots, and it is a strange chip indeed. According to UserBenchmark, Core i5-L16G7 has a total of 5 cores with HyperThreading disabled, which means that it can execute 5 threads.  In this case, the Core i5-L16G7 has a single high-powered Sunny...
