Intel has already officially introduced mobile processors Tiger Lake-U, the next in line – Tiger Lake-H. About what they will be (in general, but still) told Boyd Phelps – Vice President of the company.
In his report on the architecture of 11th generation Intel Core processors, he noted that Willow Cove-based CPUs have received much more cache memory, with L2 increasing to 1.25 MB and L3 increasing to 12 MB. In the eight-core model, the volume of L3 cache memory reached 24 MB.
But there are no eight-core CPUs in the Tiger Lake-U line, so, speaking about the eight-core models, the top manager clearly meant Tiger Lake-H. In this case, the top CPUs of this line will get 8 cores and 16 threads. And although the number of cores will remain the same in comparison with their predecessors, the frequencies will increase significantly – as it happened in Tiger Lake-U.
The release date of Tiger Lake-H is not reported, but it is rumored that these CPUs will be released early next year. Accordingly, high-performance laptops based on them should appear by the end of the first quarter of 2021.
