Intel Tiger Lake could disappoint those hoping for more powerful lower-end CPUs

Intel’s incoming Tiger Lake Main i3 processor for laptops will be a dual-core affair, in accordance to the most current from the rumor mill.

Previously there was some speculation that the Main i3-1115G4 might just be a quad-core processor, even though it was imagined probably that Intel would adhere with dual-core for the base-conclusion of its eleventh-gen Main cellular chips – and seemingly the latter is legitimate.

At minimum in accordance to the most current leak from the ever-current TUM_APISAK on Twitter, who spilled the purported full spec of the Main i3 processor (minus the boost speed).

As you can see, the Main i3-1115G4 will be a dual-core CPU as talked about (with four-threads) and it’ll operate with a base clock of 3GHz, with one.25MB of L2 cache and 6MB of L3 cache.

Most likely unsurprisingly supplied that there was some hope that this Main i3 part would be quad-core, there is some disappointment in the replies on that Twitter thread at this processor becoming dual-core (with the recommendation that in the modern CPU arena, Intel need to seriously be reserving dual-core for the likes of Pentium and Celeron processors).

Of course, we have to chuck the regular salt about right here and note that this rumor may well not be proper. Even so, as Tiger Lake processors are predicted to be exposed imminently – within the upcoming month, probably at a September 2 event – we should not have lengthy to wait to discover out.

Extra promising leaks

And prior to anybody receives much too upset, we have formerly witnessed leaks which paint a promising photograph of Tiger Lake chips at the bigger-conclusion, with the Main i7-1165G7 seemingly boasting some pretty nifty built-in graphics electricity, and critically outstanding Ryzen 4000-killing one-thread functionality to boot.

All of this is only so a great deal chatter on the grapevine at this point, however, and to see how these processors seriously pan out, we’ll have to wait for the formal launch of Tiger Lake – which is crafted on an fully new architecture, Willow Cove – and moreover, for the chips to get started pitching up in laptops on shelves at the conclusion of 2020 (in concept).
