Intel has officially confirmed that it is planning to launch the Tiger Lake-H processor in September. Recently a notebook was spotted by TUM_APISAK in the UserBenchmarks that featured Intel’s first Tiger Lake-H CPU. It was spotted running on one of Intel’s test board platforms which is a motherboard in which the ES chip is installed for evaluation. The Tiger Lake-H CPU is aimed at high-end notebooks. It will share the same 10nm architecture as the Tiger Lake-U processors but will feature higher core counts and clock speeds.
The Intel Tiger Lake-H CPU features 8 core and 16 threads with a base clock of 3.10 GHz and an average boost clock of 2.75 GHz across all cores. Moreover, sources say that the Tiger Lake CPUs will feature 24 MB of L3 and 10 MB of the L2 cache. The CPU will also feature an Intel UHD Graphics chip which will feature 96 EUs in the 45W TDP variant and 32 EUs in the standard 35W TDP variant…
The standard version of the Tiger Lake-H Lineup will feature 4-cores along with the same socket as Tiger Lake-U chips, BGA1449 socket. While the high-end versions of Intel Tiger Lake Lineup will feature up to 8 core variants along with 45 Watt TDPs and BGA 1787 socket. The chips that will feature 45W TDP will come in 3 variants (4 core, 6 core, and 8 core) featuring higher clock frequencies than the chips based on BGA 1449 socket.
The high-end 10nm Intel Tiger Lake-H lineup will feature up to 8 core and 16 thread chips based on the new Willow Cove architecture. The CPUs will feature up to 34 MB of cache which is divided into 24 MB L3 (3 MB L3 per core) and 10 MB L2 (1.25 MB per core). Tiger Lake CPUs will feature an asymmetrical 48/32 KB L1 cache and they will have complete support for AVX2 & AVX-512 instructions. The Tiger Lake-H CPUs will also feature Two-Level Memory (2LM) and SGX (Software Guard Extensions). The CPU line up will also support DDR4 speeds of up to 3200 MHz.
We can expect higher clock speeds from Tiger Lake-H CPUs when compared to Tiger Lake-U CPUs that clock up to 4.8 GHz or 5.0 GHz. The Tiger Lake-H can also be integrated with the next-generation NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30, AMD Radeon RX 6000 series mobility GPUs, and Intel’s own DG1/DG2 based GPUs. Intel has confirmed that their Tiger Lake-H High-Performance 10nm CPUs will be launched in the first Q1 of 2021. The launch date will be set around the launch date for AMD’s Cezanne-H family which will feature the Zen 3 (7nm+) cores with incremental IPC gains and a couple of other features that are not revealed yet.
