A new Intel Tiger Lake benchmark leak may have AMD shaking when it comes to mobile CPUs. The benchmark appears to showcase an 11th-Gen Intel Tiger Lake processor in action with some impressive results.
As they often do, the leaks come courtesy of Twitter and feature what is being reported as an engineering sample of a Core i7-1185G7. The chip features four cores and stands as a direct successor to Intel's Ice Lake.
One of the leaked benchmarks shows the Core i7-1085G7 with a clock speed of 3 GHz and a Time Spy benchmark score of 1,414. The CPU score is 2,922, while the graphics score is 1,296. These results place the Core i7-1185G7 as 5% faster than AMD's equivalent Ryzen 4800U.
As always, we suggest approaching these benchmarks results with the requisite amount of skepticism, but if they are to be believed, they bode very well for Intel and represent a chance to claw back ground from AMD in the ultrathin laptop CPU market.
The Tiger Lake CPUs are expected to offer a significant improvement on the existing Ice Lake processors thanks to the brand new Willow Cove architecture. The benefit yields appear to favor both the CPU and GPU performance. On the graphics front, the Xe GPUs set to feature in the Tiger Lake CPUs are primed to up performance considerably. The Ice Lake chips improved graphics performance considerably, but the Tiger Lake are expected to up that by around double.
As for when we can expect the 11th-Gen Tiger Lake to surface, the latter part of 2020 seems the best bet at this point in time. When they do finally arrive, laptop manufacturers will invariably launch a raft of new, improved models using the mobile CPUs, notably from the likes of Microsoft with its Surface range as well as HP, Lenovo, and Dell.
