Intel launched its first-gen core in Q1 2006 as a branch of the Pentium pro products. Intel uses lots of code names for its cores and products, the marketable names are printed on the sides of the retail box. However, dealing with the finest products and cores, they use the code names. Intel has developed many generation products with more improved performance, more power and more ways to perform compute.
The newly launched Intel 11th gen core named in a code name of ‘Tiger Lake’, core i7 processor which brings in the faster and more efficient performance in your CPU, also comes with advanced graphics for gaming and entertainment. But most importantly, the aim is to provide ground-breaking abilities that will help your laptop to go through everyday work systems like being more productive, more battery life, Graphics with high quality, and super thin and light system.
This clearly states that the new cores in ‘Tiger Lake’ will run at high frequency and power. Tiger Lake will involve a lower voltage as compared to other chips. It will start to push the numbers back up to 5.0 GHz. The 11th gen core processor comes with Iris Xe graphics and also, Core i3, i5, and i7 processors with Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 4 support.
“Based on Intel’s new Xe graphics architecture, integrated Intel® Iris® Xe graphics delivers transformational graphics and vivid media for creating, gaming, and entertainment on thin and light laptops”
One of the Tiger Lake’s reasons to come into the limelight is because of the new Iris Xe graphics font with integrated GPUs. The new GUPs are able to deliver the graphics performance for two times. The tiger lake chips have Xe GPU with 96 EUs which could help to run the modern games at 1080p resolution and avoid weak frame rates.
Intel also claimed that the Iris Xe beats up the integrated graphics of AMD Ryzen 7 (4800U) which comes along with the Radeon graphics. According to all this, if you have a laptop with the Tiger lake chip and also with the most powerful Iris Xe graphics, you’ll be able to do a bit of modern gaming with 1080p. Laptops like these won’t replace the dedicated gaming machines but would definitely give a thin and light laptop more power and tractability. There’s a plus point for the people who use their laptops for making videos or photo editing as it would boost up their graphics.
Tiger Lake’s outlook
Depending on the expectations from a laptop, Tiger Lake will be a noteworthy upgrade for you to have or to have a new slim and light machine to carry. If we see from the CPUs front, the improvement in real life is to use the Ice lakes chips as it has been improved to the 10mn process. While on the graphics front, the tiger lake chip with the Xe graphics is one of the best and correct options to choose from. It could deliver a proper boost to your GPUs. It is also expected to support the ‘Ray-tracing’ and to arrive in 2021.
In short, Tiger Lake will be the best choice to choose and also it will lift up the performance of the next trend of laptops and could produce some relatively impressive machines. With Tiger Lake then, the stage seems to be that the raw performance is going to jump between 10-20%, depending on how the modes are set to work in the final products. Intel has put this improvement in rate down.
Laptops with Tiger Lake chips and Xe graphics are expected to start/arrive soon. So you don’t have to wait too long to see whether Xe GPUs are worth the puff!
