The COVID-19 pandemic has caused tech companies to cancel events and delay product launches… but Intel says it’s still on track to ship its new Tiger Lake processors to PC makers in the coming months.

That means Tiger Lake laptops should start shipping in time for the 2020 holiday season — and Intel CEO Bob Swan says PC makers are working on “more than 50 fantastic Tiger Lake-based notebook designs” that should ship this year.

Tiger Lake chips will be Intel’s first chips to feature integrated graphics based on the company’s new Xe-LP graphics architecture, and the first to be manufactured using Intel’s next-gen 10nm+ process.

In other words, take all the benefits of Intel’s Ice Lake processors (improved efficiency and graphics) and kick them up a notch. At least that’s the theory. We’ll have to wait until later this year to see whether Intel can deliver on its promises.

During a recent earnings call, Swan also said that the company also plans to launch its first 10nm Xeon chips based on Ice Lake architecture by the end of the year.

  1. Can Intel Core i3 (Tiger Lake) with Xe graphics will edit 8K@60FPS or better quality videos?

    What are the probable low cost options (Intel or AMD) for this job if I wait till 2021Q1 ? (Or is it possible now?)

  2. I’m confused. Lakefield vs. Tiger Lake. What’s the difference?
    And can you get the new 10 nanomeeter integrated GPU on Lakefield as well?

    1. Tiger Lake is what comes after Ice Lake, and it’ll probably be called 11th-gen Intel Core or something like that. Lakefield is a bit weirder than that — it’s the equivalent of ARM’s big.LITTLE technology, in that it combines a high performance Sunny Cove CPU core (the same architecture used in Ice Lake) with four lower-power Atom CPU cores (based on the new Tremont architecture) in order to balance performance and batter life in devices like the Surface Neo. It’ll likely have Gen11 graphics, like Ice Lake, rather than the Xe graphics.

      1. I don’t have high hopes.
        Maybe in 2 years time when Intel catches up to the current competition lithography. Then again, the competition isn’t standing still. And another thing, it took Android devices many iterations in both hardware and software to “perfect” the philosophy of big.LITTLE, and that’s with the advantage of having per device OS customised for it.

        I think in-time, Intel will see fruits from their labour… but not anytime soon.
        Maybe in 2024, we’ll get proper 5nm fabs with 5x Atom-CPUs and 3x Core-CPUs, running on 25W laptops. Although by that time, it’s possible we could get either higher-density lithium ion batteries, or solid-state batteries, or graphene-batteries in the consumer space.
