Intel Unveils Its New Tiger Lake Processors At Architecture Day 2020

Intel used its Architecture Day 2020 to showcase its soon to come Tiger Lake processors. The chipmaker also gave a more detailed preview of its venture into building its own GPUs with its upcoming ‘Xe’ graphics.

 

Both products feel like a bit of good news after what can be referred to as a period of gloom. The company recently announced the departure of its long time Chief Engineering Officer Venkata Renduchintala. Renduchintala was responsible for everything from the design to engineering and the manufacturing of Intel’s chips. He also headed the company’s other hardware manufacturing.

 

Before Renduchintala’s departure, the company had announced the delay of its 7nm chips due to defects. The company said the 7nm-based CPU product timing was set back by about six months because the yield of the 7nm process was now 12 months behind its internal schedule.

 

Intel has also faced increasing competition from its rival chipmakers. AMD’s new 7nm Ryzen 4000 chips, for example, are already ahead of Intel’s 10nm Ice Lake chips from a manufacturing standpoint. In a lot of cases, AMD 7nm processors outperform Intel’s offerings in PCs.

ARM is also competing for Intel’s dominance in the major computing space. It now powers computers for major companies like Microsoft, Samsung, and Apple.

 

Intel is fighting the competition with its new Tiger Lake processors. The chip is expected to be Intel’s 11th Gen Core processors under its current branding scheme.

 

The processor is powered by the company’s new Willow Cove architecture, which is built on a new “SuperFin” transistor. The company promises that the new transistor will offer a generational type of increase that a full node shift would offer. Intel also promises that the Tiger Lake chips will offer dramatically better frequency speeds while using considerably less power.

 

The Tiger Lake processor will support some new I/O standards like Thunderbolt 4 and USB4. It will also support DDR5 RAM at up to 5400MHz, DDR4 at up to 3200MHz and LPDDR4X at up to 4767MHz.

 

If the Tiger Lake processor performs as Intel says it would, then the company might be able to hold on to its spot at the top for longer.
