Intel is now ready to launch the Tiger Lake-U processors on the market, solutions already anticipated during the CES in Las Vegas that will use the company's long-awaited (and criticized) 10nm + production process. According to current information available, Intel should present these CPUs in early September, instead continuing to push on the desktop segment with the current 14nm Comet Lake-S, unveiled as you will remember only last April.
Tiger Lake-U processors will represent the low-power option of the entire line, intended for the compact notebook and convertible market. Intel is expected to offer models with 15 and 28 watt TDP that will use Intel Xe integrated graphics and support DDR5 RAM.
As for high-performance notebook products, Tiger Lake-H processors will arrive no earlier than 2021, this is at least what transpires from a recent report published by the partner and giant of the Compal notebooks. According to reports, Intel will present Tiger Lake-H during the first quarter of next year, CPUs featuring a TDP up to 35W, support for DDR4 memories (therefore not DDR5 with for Tiger Lake-U) and architecture up to 8 cores.
The Tiger Lake-H series will replace the current Comet Lake-H (10th gen) announced in the spring, a platform that offers CPUs with up to 8 cores / 16 threads and frequencies exceeding 5 GHz in Boost mode. It will be interesting to see if the new production process will allow the company to further push the frequencies, optimizing consumption and thermal performance.
