The Tiger Lake UP3 family welcomes two additional members, the Core i7-1195G7 and Core i5-1155G7.
Intel has whistled the start of Computex 2021 with several announcements. The firm added two chips to its gamme Tiger Lake-U, including a Core i7 with a Boost frequency of 5 GHz, a first for ultrabooks; briefly presented his future NUC Beast Canyon, the “First NUCs to support a full-length graphics card” ; unveiled its Intel 5G Solution 5000, a 5G modem developed in partnership with MediaTek and Fibocom.
Let’s start with the new Tiger Lake-U UP3 chips, the Core i7-1195G7 and Core i5-1155G7. These are two 4 cores / 8 threads with configurable TDPs between 12 and 28 W. The Core i7 has more graphics cores (96 against 80 for the Core i5) and is a little faster: up to 5 GHz on one core, while the maximum frequency across all of its cores is 4.6 GHz. These processors are still armed with Willow Cove cores engraved in 10 nm SuperFin.
Tiger Lake UP3
The table below shows the updated Tiger Lake UP3 range.
|Processor||Cœurs / Threads||Cache (Mo)||IGPU threads||Base frequency (GHz)||Turbo frequency on one core (GHz)||Turbo frequency on all cores (GHz)||Maximum iGPU frequency (GHz)||TDP||Memory support|
|Core i7-1195G7||4C / 8T||12||96||2,9||5||4,6||1,4||12 -28W||DDR4-3200, LPDDR4x-4266|
|Core i7-1185G7||4C / 8T||12||96||3||4,8||4,3||1,35||12 – 28W||DDR4-3200, LPDDR4x-4266|
|Core i7-1165G7||4C / 8T||12||96||2,8||4,7||4,1||1,3||12 – 28W||DDR4-3200, LPDDR4x-4266|
|Core i5-1155G7||4C / 8T||8||80||2,5||4,5||4,3||1,35||12 – 28W||DDR4-3200, LPDDR4x-4266|

|Core i5-1135G7||4C / 8T||8||80||2,4||4,2||3,8||1,3||12 – 28W||DDR4-3200, LPDDR4x-4266|
|Core i3-1125G4||4C / 8T||8||48||2||3,7||3,3||1,25||12 – 28W||DDR4-3200, LPDDR4x-3733|
Intel shares several slides highlighting the performance of its Core i7-1195G7 against AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800U (8 cores / 16 threads). Nothing for the Core i5 however. As always, take these promotional benchmarks with caution, as testing protocols aren’t always fair. In games, Intel promotes the Sampler Feedback DirectX 12 Ultimate feature, currently only supported by the Xe graphics architecture (not Vega, therefore). As for application benchmarks, the company, as usual for several months, insists on AVX-512 VNNI benchmarks likely to take advantage of the acceleration of AI and inference (DL Boost). However, except for Quick Sync Video technology, these are not necessarily very representative of the workloads of the majority of productivity software currently in use.
NUC Beast Canyon
Intel briefly presented its upcoming NUC 11 Extreme dubbed Beast Canyon. As indicated on the single slide provided, these machines will be armed with a Tiger Lake-H processor (Core i5, i7 or i9) and will be able to accommodate a full-length graphics card; in practice, it will be a question of a long graphics card of 12 inches, or 30 cm approximately.
Intel 5G Solution 5000
And Intel gave up designing 5G modems for smartphones in 2019, the firm had not abandoned 5G for computers and the IoT sector. Here is the Intel 5G Solution 5000, a modem developed with MediaTek and manufactured by Fibocom. This solution is compatible with the current Tiger Lake platform and will also be compatible with the future Alder Lake platform. It measures 30 x 52 x 2.3 mm and uses a PCIe 3.0 interface and is limited to Sub 6 GHz.
This 5G chip will be marketed this year through three OEM partners (Acer, ASUS and HP).
