Intel's Tiger Lake-H family of notebook processors has been divided into two two groups: some very exciting eight-core parts with 45-watt TDPs, and some slightly less exciting but still very fast 35-watt CPUs. Both of these product groups have shown best in class single-threaded performance for high-performance and gaming notebooks. It looks like a refresh might already be on the way, however, as unannounced CPUs pop-up in online benchmark databases. Fresh from the Geekbench score database is an unannounced Core i7-11390H processor. The CPU showed up in a notebook marked NV4XMJ,MK,MH which maps to a whitebook made by Clevo and used by a whole host of boutique notebook builders. Oddly enough,... Read more...
Intel recently fleshed out its Tiger Lake stack with a pair of refreshed SKUs, the Core i7-1195G7 and Core i5-1155G7, both announced last week during Computex 2021. There are dozens of laptop designs in the works that will feature Intel's newest Tiger Lake-U processors, but what kind of performance will they deliver? A benchmark leak potentially gives us an idea. Before we get to the benchmark leak, let's quickly go over the specifications for Intel's latest Tiger Lake models. Sitting at the higher end of the stack, the Core i7-1195G7 is a 4-core/8-thread processor with a 1.9GHz to 2.9GHz base frequency, depending on the configurable TDP (12W to 28W), a 5GHz max turbo frequency, and 12MB of L3...

Intel continues to flesh out its mobile processor line with new SKUs, like the recently introduced Tiger Lake-H family for high-powered laptops. It is also planning to launch refreshed Tiger Lake-U processors, otherwise known as Tiger Lake-R, with ultra-lower power specifications for thin and light laptops. Intel has yet to formally introduce those models, but a pair of MSI laptop listings highlight a couple of the upcoming SKUs. Officially, all we know about Tiger Lake-R is that it is coming, with processors slated to arrive sometime this year, and that the power target will be 15-28W. Beyond that, it is anyone's guess as to exactly when the new laptop processors will arrive, how many SKUs there... Read more...
