Intel releases a new generation of processors

The American corporation Intel presented the new generation processors Tiger Lake, which are made on a 10-nanometer process and have an integrated graphics system.

New Intel Tiger Lake processors are based on a 10-nanometer SuperFin process and Willow Cove architecture. Willow Cove processor cores have a redesigned chip hierarchy for improved performance. The chip supports LPDDR4X-4266/DDR4-3200 memory and has built-in Thunderbolt 4 and PCI Express 4.0 interfaces and an Iris Xe graphics system.
It provides full HD resolution for gaming, and the graphics module is capable of delivering a maximum image at 8K resolution at 60 frames per second. However, the developers noted that the Iris Xe module is available only in Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. The overall performance of the processor compared to chips Ice Lake 10th generation has increased by 17-18%. According to Intel, the new chips are the world’s best processors for thin and light notebooks.
The Tiger Lake provides more than 20 percent faster performance than competitive products for office applications and twice as much performance for video games. Acer, Asus, Dell, Dynabook, HP, Lenovo and others have already agreed on the release of new notebook models based on Intel processors. At the same time, Intel has not yet specified when the new generation processors Tiger Lake will be available for purchase.
It is known that by the end of this year the American corporation Apple will release two new models of MacBook on the first processors of its own production. The 13.3-inch MacBook Pro will be shipped in the fourth quarter of 2020, while the new MacBook Air will enter the market around the same time. Next year, Apple will update its line of 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro notebooks.
Analysts believe that the cost savings associated with the transition from Intel processors to Apple’s own Silicon will reduce the base cost of MacBook Air, but the corporation’s plans for marketing and pricing policy in relation to new devices are still a secret. It is likely that the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro will increase the display diagonal to 14 inches by reducing the thickness of the screen frame.
