Intel 11th Generation Core Tiger Lake-H Processor Appears

Intel has launched its Tiger Lake-U lineup of products back in September, with the availability of the first products in October. The launched lineup was part of the "U" variant of ultra-portable devices that stretched only to four core, eight threaded configurations. However, given that the new competitor in mobile space, AMD, has a wide portfolio of offerings that are coming with up to 8C/16T variants, Intel needs a proper response to that. Despite having a better single-threaded performance, the multi-threaded capability of the Ryzen 4000 series is delivering better performance. Thanks to the popular hardware leaker, TUM APISAK, we have the first appearance of Intel's 11th generation Tiger Lake-H processor.

Appearing in Userbenchmark, the processor was tested on a platform codenamed "Insyde TigerLake". The processor was spotted running 8 cores and 16 threads, at the average frequency of 2.75 GHz. This is only an engineering sample, meaning that these clocks do not represent the final frequencies of the processor. As a reminder, Intel's Tiger Lake CPU is a Willow Cove based design manufactured on Intel's 10 nm SuperFin silicon node. We are yet to see the capabilities of the new node and how the chip performs once the reviews arrive.

they need this badly since soon we will get 5000 series APUs with Zen 3, so Intel needs the extra IPC of TigerLake to fight.
In any case, 5000 series will be more powerful and efficient so...

So..... just exactly how many "pluses" (+++++) can we look forward to for the 10nm node ????

If they milk it out like they have/are doing with 14nm, then it should still be around until at least 2051 or so, hahahaha :roll:

Hopefully by then, team Red will be on Zen 108 or so, and will far surpass all other platforms so much that this intel-wuusy nonsense will just be a sad, sad memory/footnote in most peoples minds...

Let's hope SuperFin won't turn into La Fin. ;)

The most interesting thing will be the TDP.

There are no bad products, only bad prices.

As of now, I suppose Tiger lake justify its existence by better OEM support and processor availability, and potentially better pricing when bundled with Intel dGPU.

Unfortunately, Zen 3 will likely squish it so hard that it become Cat lake.

Is this the gaming SKU or the same U series but with higher Core and SMT ? Anyways both are garbage, I have a socketed notebook and have seen horrors of that market from the BGA soldering, crappy UWP drivers, No Undervolting possible esp with both AMD and Intel, Intel Microcode patches break the CPU tweaking, out of box they are having high voltage and with the new Win10 WaaS garbage forced uCode ruins it bad, then you have BIOSes which prevent you to roll back, this exists in one of the top Mobile workstation - Alienware Area 51M R1, it has an LGA socket but DRAM is limited speed, GPU is propreitary socketed (useless since it's DGFF form factor) just go to Unclewebb's TS page you'll see nightmares for people using these CPUs. COMPLETE GARBAGE. AMD processors have TDP Locks, and fine tuning is impossible, yeah PGA CPUs.

I just mention to people anyone expecting any sort of high performance desktop replacements just do not buy the mobile platforms. Ngreedia GPUs are also power starved, AMD never had any competitive product with 7970M MXM. Only option for those really into the mobile - Clevo with a custom sBIOS Mod, still Heatsinks are a pain & pricing is bonkers. I want an upgrade of 1070 in MXM b, it costs frigging 470USD. The price of new Ampere GPUs which destroy it completely.

I mean... they are. In the sense that they are on the same chip, using an interconnect.

I'm considering this 8core Tiger Lake-H CPU to replace my 4th gen laptop. I know this is a part OEMs are badly waiting for, to produce their next gen high performance gaming laptops. It is designed to be paired with discrete GPUs. It will sell like hot cakes. AMD cannot produce enough Zen 3 APUs to outsell this.

What do the two dies consist of? Is this an off-die cache or GPU?

Had they scaled this to desktop, I wouldn't even consider the 5950x for my ITX build. Willowcove cores stronk!

I got some old Elmers glue they can have.

The second die is the PCH (Platform Controller Hub.) Have the same two dies on a package in the Acer C720 Chromebook with a Haswell Celeron dual core.

The PCH has Wi-Fi 6 built-in.

Mobile gpu's with mxm form have always been expensive and they keep their value over the years.

As Moore's law has slowed down due to getting ever closer to the atomic wall, we can expect several.

Considering how Tiger Lake U is trading blows with Ryzen 4xxxU, while having almost twice as big TDP, I'll still go for AMD, cause 5xxx APUs are coming next year. And same notebooks with "A" brand are usually cheaper.

WiFi? You mean the baseband part of it or there are also antennae connectors on that chip?

The Mac side of the WiFi chip is in there (called CNVi) and it has a special interface to the M.2 port where you can install a CRF card (companion RF like AX201) which is the RF part that has the radio part, antennas, etc.
