It seems that Intel is going for it. The Tiger Lake architecture represents one of the most important advancements Intel has made in the general consumer processor market, utilizing the 10nm “SuperFin” process and new Willow Cove cores, in addition to Intel Xe GPUs. new generation.
At the moment this architecture is limited to the general consumer laptop processor sector, a market that Intel intends to cover in a big way, as we have been able to confirm that the new low-end Celeron 6305 / 6305E and Pentium Gold 7505 processors, based on Tiger Lake, will support AVX 512 instructions.
This means that these new processors will be prepared to work with a set of key instructions for the correct operation of important new technologies associated with artificial intelligence, such as speech processing and the reduction of ambient noise. They can also speed up complex calculations and even modern games that already require them.
The new Tiger Lake-based Intel Pentium and Intel Celeron will also utilize the new Intel Xe-LP integrated GPUs with configurations of up to 48 execution units, will support 3,733MHz LPDDR4X or 3,200MHz DDR4 memory, and will be compatible with the Thunderbolt 4 standard.
Both lines will maintain the classic configuration that they have been following, which means that the Celeron will have 2 cores and 2 threads, and the Pentium will have 2 cores and 4 threads. They can be an interesting option to shape a new generation of low-cost laptops.
