We still have some waiting to do until we find out if the hype surrounding Intel's upcoming Tiger Lake stack—and particularly its accompanying Xe graphics—is justified. Until then, we are left to the usual sources, which entail rumors and leaked benchmarks. Falling into the latter category, a new 3DMark benchmark entry seemingly bodes well for Intel's Core i7-1165G7. The Core i7-1165G7 is a part we have seen in past leaks. It falls within Intel's Tiger Lake-U series (not yet released) and will be labeled as an 11th generation Core part, with Xe graphics. It is the Xe graphics that arguably of most interest, because it is the same underlying architecture that will power Intel's eventual... Read more...
Intel's diminutive Next Unit of Computing (NUC) platform has evolved from an interesting miniature PC concept to a potentially transformative PC form factor, because the company has found ways to punch up the performance meter. The best is yet to come. Looking ahead, a leaked roadmap reveals Intel might launch a potent version of its NUC based on its upcoming Tiger Lake-U stack. Tiger Lake-U will assume the rank as Intel's 11th generation Core processor line, built on a 10-nanometer manufacturing process. It will success Ice Lake and presumably bring with it faster clocks, better power efficiency, and overall better performance. It will also feature Gen12 graphics based on Intel's Xe graphics...

3DMark is the never ending spigot of leaks, and more recently, we have seen a bunch of them pertaining to Intel's upcoming Tiger Lake-U series. That is what we have again here today. The latest leak is said to highlight an unspecified Tiger Lake-U processor with onboard Gen2 "Xe" graphics, in the Fire Strike benchmark. Tiger Lake-U is will be labeled as 11th generation Intel Core processors, and will succeed the company's 10th generation Ice Lake-U stack. They will be manufactured on an enhanced 10-nanometer node. As designated by the "U," these chips will find their way into low power laptops, and perhaps some mini PCs as well. The latest leak comes by way of @_rogame (no surprise there). Here's...

I've always been interested in mini PC form factors, especially now that it is possible to pack desktop-class performance into a comparatively small enclosure about the size of a router. In keeping with that theme, Intel's NUC 9 Extreme proved to be a pint-sized powerhouse. What's next? Well, various leaks point to Intel prepping a NUC lineup built around its 11th generation Tiger Lake-U processors. Tiger Lake is next coming of Intel's 10-nanometer node. The enhanced process (10nm++) should deliver faster clockspeeds and better power efficiency, though we'll have to wait and see. Tiger Lake will supplant Intel's 10th generation Ice Lake stack when it arrives in the second half of this year (barring... Read more...
When it comes to unreleased hardware, we can always count on Twitter benchmark sleuths to uncovers prototype hardware making the rounds. In this latest instance, Rogame has discovered additional references to an unreleased Tiger Lake-U processor due later this year. For those that need a refresher course, Intel's Tiger Lake architecture will underpin its 11th generation processor families. While Intel's current 10th generation Ice Lake-U processors are built on 10nm process tech using Sunny Cove CPU cores, Tiger Lake-U will use 10nm+ process tech and feature Willow Cove CPU cores. The specific processor in this latest leak -- which is likely the Core i7-1165G7 -- is showing... Read more...
April showers might bring May flowers, but what do April lakes bring? Lots of early looks at upcoming processors, that's what. There have been plenty of leaks this month already, and adding to the growing pool is a 3DMark database entry pointing to an Intel Core i7-1165G7 mobile processor based on the chip maker's Tiger Lake-U series. Tiger Lake-U has not been released just yet, though Intel did sort of introduce the upcoming series at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. "Tiger Lake is designed to bring Intel’s bold, people-led vision for mobile computing to life, with groundbreaking advances in every vector and experience that matters. With optimizations spanning the CPU, AI... Read more...
Here is a fun fact—there around 117 million lakes on the planet, covering nearly four percent of the world's land surface (thanks, National Geographic). Intel seems intent on naming a processor line after all them. Hot on the heels of Comet Lake-H making an official debut, a leaked benchmark highlights one of Intel's upcoming Tiger Lake-U processors. Before we dive into the leak, let's clear some things up. Intel's product lines typically contain Y, U, H, and S designations. Y and U parts are lower power mobile chips for thin and light laptops, and some lower power mini PCs, while H parts are higher power mobile chips for more potent laptops, like ones designed for gaming. The S parts are... Read more...
Rumors have been swirling for a while now that Microsoft is planning to introduce a Surface Book 3, and the latest chatter pegs the unveiling for a Spring hardware event in New York City. It would not be a surprise if that ended up happening. What would be somewhat of a surprise, however, is if the Surface Book 3 came armed with an 11th generation Tiger Lake-U processor, as a fresh 3DMark leak seems to suggest. The prevailing assumption is that Microsoft would tap its 10th gen Ice Lake stack for the Surface Book 3. Back in January, a similar leak highlighted various possible configurations, including one that paired an Ice Lake-based 10th generation Core i7-1065G7 processor (4 cores, 8 threads)... Read more...
A fresh leak over at SiSoftware's SANDRA database gives us a potential glimpse of an upcoming Intel Tiger Lake-U processor, assuming the listing is legitimate. The model name is not shown, but the listing does provide some interesting specifications, including an ability for the mobile processor to hit a 4.3GHz boost clock. While not yet launched, Intel's plans to release a Tiger Lake lineup are not exactly secret. Just the opposite, Intel offered up a demo of working Tiger Lake silicon during its keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this year. According to Intel's Greg Bryant, Tiger Lake will deliver a "double digit" performance uplift over its predecessors. Click to... Read more...
Back in January we brought you news of Intel's NUC 11 family that is in the product pipeline. At the time, we were made privy to the "standard" Panther Canyon family and its more enthusiast-oriented Phantom Canyon counterpart. Today, however, FanlessTech has provided an update on the launch timetable for the NUC 11 family of mini PCs. According to an Intel roadmap update, both Panther Canyon and Phantom Canyon are on track to launch during the second half of 2020. This new information lines up with what we already know about Tiger Lake, as Intel has reaffirmed on multiple occasions that its 11th generation 10nm+ processors would ship during the latter half of 2020. Intel... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about Intel's 11th generation Tiger Lake processors recently, and the company is tipped to launch the product line during the second half of 2020. Today, we're getting an early look at what kind of performance Tiger Lake will bring to the table when it launches. Benchmark sleuth TUM_APISAK uncovered Geekbench 5 results for a 4-core/8-thread Tiger Lake-U processor clocked at 2.3GHz. There's not much else to speak of on the hardware side of things other than to point out that this particular system is configured with 16GB of DDR4 memory. As for the Geekbench scores, the unidentified Tiger Lake-U processors manages to deliver single-core and multi-core... Read more...
It was just back in November when Intel officially launched its Frost Canyon NUC 10 family powered by 10th generation Comet Lake-U processors. But today we're already getting a look at their successors, and as you might imagine, they're powered by Intel's next-generation Core architecture. According to a fresh leak from FanlessTech, Intel will be releasing Panther Canyon and Phantom Canyon NUC 11 machines, and both will be powered by 11th generation Tiger Lake-U processors complete with Intel's much ballyhooed Xe graphics architecture. Panther Canyon is the more "mainstream" NUC 11 and will be spec’d accordingly: Processors: Tiger Lake-U (28w)... Read more...
Intel released two families of 10th generation mobile processors over the summer: Comet Lake and Ice Lake. Of the two, Ice Lake garnered the most attention as these processors are based on Intel's long-delayed 10nm+ process tech and feature an all-new graphics core. The chip giant is on track to release another round of 10nm mobile processors in 2020 under the codename Tiger Lake. Tiger Lake will use Intel's optimized 10nm++ architecture, and today we're getting an early look at performance benchmarks for the processors. The leak comes courtesy of Zhihu, which was first spotted by the folks at WCCFTech. The chips were emblazoned with the ES2 designation, which indicates that these are... Read more...
Intel must be getting somewhat close to launching its next-gen Tiger Lake CPU architecture and product lineup, because the leaks keep rolling in at a sometimes frenetic pace. Just last month, for example, benchmark entries for Tiger Lake-Y processors sporting Xe graphics were spotted in both Geekbench 5 and SiSoftware SANDRA. Now just a few weeks later, Tiger Lake-U is making a cameo in Geekbench 5's database. Tiger Lake is being built on a 10-nanometer process node, and based on past roadmaps, are not expected to launch until the second half of 2020. It's not clear if those plans have changed, however, with all of these early entries we are seeing. Either way, we are looking at a successor to... Read more...
A next generation Intel "Tiger Lake-U" processor submission for the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) suggests the upcoming CPU series will support both LPDDR4X and LPDDR5 memory when it arrives next year. Overall details are rather light, but according to the listing, the unidentified processor is a quad-core chip. Tiger Lake-U is the eventual successor to Intel's recently introduced Ice Lake family for thin and light laptops. it will be the second mass-produced processor line from Intel to utilize a 10-nanometer manufacturing process, so it will be an iterative bump with presumably faster clocks and improved power efficiency, and apparently LPDDR5 support.
