A Lakefield chip from Intel has been discovered in UserBenchmark’s database. The processor is named as the Intel Core i5-L16G7. The benchmark entry reveals that the chip has 5 cores and 5 threads, and it offers a base clock of 1.4 GHz and average turbo up to 1.75 GHz. Lakefield SoCs could eventually be used in devices such as the next-gen Microsoft Surface Go.

A Lakefield Core i5-L16G7 processor from Intel has been spotted on UserBenchmark by noted data-miner Tum Apisak. The 5-core chip features as part of a system called “Samsung 767XCL” while the motherboard is recorded as “SAMSUNG SAMSUNG_NP_767XCL”, indicating a possible ultraportable laptop. The device also has 8 GB RAM and operates on Windows 10.

The 5-core, 5-thread Intel Core i5-L16G7 utilizes a similar setup to ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture. The Intel chip has 1x Sunny Cove big core and 4x Tremont small cores, and it can also supposedly count on Gen11 graphics as part of the package. The Lakefield architecture, along with the ultra-low power requirements (5 W and 7 W TDP), makes these Intel SoCs ideal for mobility-focused products, including for possible use in future Microsoft Surface tablets and other ultraportable devices.

Unsurprisingly, the i5-L16G7 and the Samsung 767XCL did not achieve any mind-blowing scores on UserBenchmark, but then the focus isn’t on high performance here. The chip had an average benchmark score of 34.1% and offered up a base clock of 1.4 GHz and a turbo up to 1.75 GHz. If Intel prices this curious penta-core Lakefield chip at the right level, it could end up being a strong challenger to ARM’s dominance in the ultra-mobile sector.
