Intel discusses Tiger Lake, next-generation cores with Xe graphics – CES 2020

At CES 2020, Intel has given the press an update on its Tiger Lake CPU architecture, the company’s next-generation 10nm product offering, which is due to deliver a new CPU core architecture and the company’s new Xe graphics engine. 

Tiger Lake is Intel’s successor to Ice Lake, a product offering that remains uncommon more than six months after launch. When compared to Ice Lake, Tiger Lake is to offer users further boosts to CPU IPC, increased graphics performance thanks to Intel’s new Xe architecture and enhanced support for DL-Boost alongside new features like support for INT8 instructions. 

Even now, Intel uses 14nm processors for its 10th generation mobile CPU lineup, highlighting the shortcomings of Ice Lake and the 10nm silicon that it’s built with. Tiger Lake will hopefully allow Intel to deliver enough performance and high enough clock speeds to replace the company’s 14nm silicon, allowing new features like DL- Boost and AVX-512 to enter more mainstream hardware. 

At this time, Intel has not confirmed when Tiger Lake will release, though it seems likely that Intel wants to iterate on its Ice Lake designs quickly. Even so, Intel’s 10nm lithography could still prove to be a challenging hurdle for Intel to overcome, even with an extra plus on its node name. 

Intel is likely to discuss Tiger Lake further at its CES 2020 press conference, which starts today (January 6th) 4 PM PST, which translates to midnight UK time. Intel’s press conference will be livestreamed.
