The first 10nm Intel Tiger Lake processor has landed on the SiSoftware benchmark database. From the entry, we get to see that this particular CPU is a dual-core ULV part with modest base and boost clocks. Not much information can be availed from the benchmark itself apart from the classification that it is 'Low Performing'.

Intel gave a sneak peak as to what to expect from the 'Tiger Lake' platform during its Investor Meeting earlier this month. Now, it looks like the first chip belonging to the new architecture has found its way to the SiSoftware benchmark database. The SiSoftware listing shows identifies the new chip as 'Intel Tiger Lake Client Platform'.

From the listing, we get to see that this 'Tiger Lake' CPU could be a low-power mobile part with two cores, 1.5 GHz base and 1.8 GHz boost clocks, and 2 MB L3 cache. Tiger Lake is aimed at ULV use cases so the specs seem to be in tune with that. Gauging from the specs, this looks to be a lower rung SKU and at this point, we aren't really sure about Hyperthreading support. The benchmark also classifies it as 'Low Performance'. Apart from this, there is not much to learn from the entry itself. 

For those not in the know, the 10nm Tiger Lake processors scheduled for a 2020 launch will be the successors to Ice Lake and Lakefield. Tiger Lake will see a new Willow Cove core architecture (successor to Sunny Cove), integrated Intel Xe graphics (Gen12) that can drive an 8K monitor or multiple 4K ones, and next gen I/O. According to Intel, Tiger Lake is in the final stages of development and the company has working silicon running Windows and Chrome OS. 

Intel also claimed that Tiger Lake offers up to four times the graphics performance of Whiskey Lake and up to twice the performance of Amber Lake but the comparisons weren't really an apples-to-apples due to differing power envelopes. Further details about Tiger Lake are still unknown but hopefully, we will get to see more processor benchmarks in the wild later this year.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
