Intel's Architecture Day 2020 brought a first look at the company's upcoming Tiger Lake processors, along with a more detailed preview of Intel's foray into building its own GPUs with its upcoming Xe graphics — both of which promise to offer higher performance and lower power consumption than ever before.
Intel's performance charts showed Tiger Lake outpacing today's Ice Lake predecessors through a combination of improvements, including a new core chip design called Willow Cove and an updated manufacturing process now called SuperFin.
The result of the new 10nm SuperFin design, though, is that Intel promises Tiger Lake chips will offer dramatically better frequency speeds, while also drawing considerably less power. That means Intel will be able to offer chips that provide big performance boosts at the same voltage levels as today's Ice Lake chips or offer comparable frequency rates while reducing power consumption.
The CPUs will be paired with Xe graphics and will benefit everything from servers to games.
