Intel Tiger Lake sees 4.8GHz boost along with 1.55GHz GPU clocks
While Intel faced issues with the Ice Lake parts not being able to be clocked nearly as high as Comet Lake due to the limitations of their 10nm node, it seems that they might have overcome it for their Tiger Lake generation.
The Intel Core i7-1185G7 was spotted on Geekbench with 3.0GHz base clocks and 4.8GHz boost clocks, which is a significant step up from the 4.1GHz that Intel squeezed out of the Apple-exclusive Intel Core i7-1068NG7.
The CPU isn’t the only impressive part of the upcoming 11th Gen Intel Core processors. As hinted earlier, they are also going to pack the upcoming Intel Xe graphics, and the GPU here is a massive 96 EU (Execution Units) part that’s clocked at up to 1.55GHz.
In comparison to the GPUs in the Ice Lake generation that came in configurations of up to 64 EU running at up to 1.1GHz, we should see a major leap forward in integrated graphics performance, at least for Intel.
While I think it is probably safe to assume that the Core i7-1185G7 will rank on the higher-end of the spectrum, the Intel Core i3-1115G4 appears to be pretty impressive too with 4.1GHz clocks. The 11th Generation Intel Core processors might just see Intel be competitive again, when the AMD Renoir APUs have taken the market by storm recently.
Intel is expected to unveil more about the 11th Gen Intel Core processors tomorrow, so stay tuned for more news on them coming real soon!
