UserBenchmark reveals one of Intel's upcoming and 8-core Tiger Lake-H processors
Tiger Lake-H has reared its head on UserBenchmark. The follow-up to Comet Lake-H is yet to be unveiled, but Tiger Lake-H is expected to mark the move from 14 nm to 10 nm for Intel's 45 W processors. The laptop on UserBenchmark has benchmarked as 'Insyde TigerLake', denoting that it is probably a prototype of sorts. The machine has also been equipped with 20 GB of DDR4-3,200 RAM, an unusual combination for laptops. Additionally, UserBenchmark reports a base clock of 3.1 GHz and an average boost clock of 2.75 GHz, more indicators that this is a prototype or an engineering sample.
The entry indicates that the Tiger Lake-H processor supports Hyper-Threading, which is unsurprising. The processor also has eight cores, which Intel confirmed would be the maximum core count for the Tiger Lake-H series. Rumour has it that Intel will offer Tiger Lake-H processors with four and six cores, as it already does with the Comet Lake-H series.
However, Tiger Lake-H processors will supposedly come with TDPs ranging from 35 W to 65 W, with a 45 W TDP offered for six-core SKUs. Similarly, Intel will utilise multiple iGPUs for the Tiger Lake-H series. All SKUs will have Iris Xe GPUs, but 35 W SKUs will be stuck with 32 Execution Units (EUs). By contrast, 45 W and 65 W processors will have 96 EUs.
Intel Tiger Lake-H-based notebooks are expected in the first half of 2021. However, it is unclear when Intel will unveil the Tiger Lake-H architecture.
