What is Jasper Lake? This has been a valid question since a leak referenced it alongside Rocket Lake in July 2019. Now, new evidence suggests that it is a mobile SoC based on the new Tremont microarchitecture. The same also nods to a novel micro-server chipset called Jacobsville.

Tremont is a recently-released microarchitecture for ultra-low voltage SoCs. It may support 10-nanometer production and acts as the successor to Goldmont Plus. Intel did state at its launch that it could support use-cases such as smaller servers in addition to conventional mobile processing; now, a new leak appears that at least 2 chipsets of either nature is on the way.

According to code found on an x86 Intel family GitHub, one is Jasper Lake, a name that has appeared in an earlier leak in company with that of Rocket Lake. Should this new information be correct, it is destined for the mobile market.

The same new leak also hints at the existence of Jacobsville, a heretofore-unheard of micro-server SoC. Both of these names have appeared alongside Elkhart Lake, another as-yet unreleased processor which is also currently rumored to support Gen11 graphics. It may supplant Gemini Lake-series CPUs later in 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
