Intel Launches 10nm “Tiger Lake” Desktop Processors
Intel is very likely getting ready to start its 10 nm “Tiger Lake” processor on the desktop platform. momomo_us uncovered the existence of at least 4 new processor SKUs in Intel’s ARK web pages. At the very least one particular of these is marked as a desktop chip. What is just not apparent, is no matter whether these are Socket LGA1200 chips, like “Rocket Lake-S,” or no matter if these are FC-BGA chips that have been tailored for particular desktop use-instances, these as NUCs. At the heart of these chips is the new 10 nm “Tiger Lake” eight-main/16-thread silicon, which packs 8 “Willow Cove” CPU cores, 24 MB of shared L3 cache, and a Gen12 Xe LP iGPU that has forty eight EUs.
The widespread theme with the processor product numbering with these SKUs is the model extension “B,” following to product quantities we typically affiliate with “Rocket Lake-S” SKUs. Another commonality is TDP. All four SKUs are marked as sixty five-Watt chips, such as the component that has an unlocked multiplier. The lineup is led by the Main i9-11900KB, an 8-core/16-thread chip with Thermal Velocity Raise frequency of up to 5.30 GHz, and foundation frequency of three.thirty GHz. The Core i7-11700B lacks an unlocked multiplier, but interestingly characteristics TVB, and retains the core-depend and cache sum of the i9-11900KB. It is clocked at speeds of up to 5.30 GHz. The Main i5-11500B is a six-main/12-thread section, with twelve MB of L3 cache, and the identical five.30 GHz improve, established through TVB. The Core i3-11100B is a four-main/8-thread part with eight MB L3 cache, and is probably based on the 4-core “Tiger Lake” die, with its iGPU slash down. The clocks stay the similar. It remains to be seen how Intel marketplaces these parts.
