As already We told וWe showed to you On a number of previous occasions, Intel's new generation of Tiger Lake mobile Brings with it a lot of potential for important improvements with up-to-date architectures and leading technological standards - but also has much more potential for confusion and even disappointment among consumers, now that families of the Y and U models of the past are united under a single switch with a dynamic power range of 7 watts Only for 28 watts according to the engineering preferences of the computer manufacturers themselves.
Internally, Intel has made a division of the many new-generation processors launched in one fell swoop into the UP3 and UP4 series, with a number one difference in model names that signals those that once belonged to the ultra-economical Y families, with a power envelope that can range from 7 Watts to 15 watts, and those that would belong to the U families with a power envelope ranging from 12 watts to 28 watts.
The UP3 series with larger work suppliers won five models under it in the first wave, with theCore i7-1185G7 as the senior representative, while the more economical and modest UP4 series had to settle for four models, with theCore i7-1160G7 as the leading representative - which naturally made us believe that there is also a model Core i7-1180G7 added to plans. Now the same cost-effective leading model provides us with a debut as part of the Geekbench 5 test database, shortly before the commercial debut intended for the impressive ThinkPad X1 Nano laptop Lenovo.
The first result from the performance test records us a basic operating frequency of 2.2GHz for the new quad-core model, which is a particularly large jump compared to a declared basic operating frequency of only 1.2GHz inCore i7-1160G7 (There is a good probability that the reading of the data in Geekbench is inaccurate, and does not describe the lowest base frequency to which theCore i7-1180G7 is coming), this in addition to a maximum operating frequency of 4.6GHz for a single core, compared to a maximum operating frequency of 4.4GHz inCore i7-1160G7.
It is also possible that the built-in 96-core graphics Iris Xe core will gain a slight increase in frequency inCore i7-1180G7, but it is a fact that we do not have real information about it from Geekbench - what we do know is that the single core result of the processor is an improvement of between 7 and 17 percent compared to the results of the single core of the models.Core i7-1160G7 that exist in the repository, while the result of multi-cores is an improvement of between 5 and 24 percent compared to the previous leading UP4 model. These improvements helpCore i7-1180G7 reduce the gap compared to theCore The i7-1185G7 leads to only about 10 percent on average, while retaining the potential to provide life battery It is better or alternatively to operate within much thinner and lighter systems.
The ThinkPad X1 Nano in question, which is expected to hit store shelves during the current month with a significant starting price of about $ 1,600, is designed to offer users theCore The new i7-1180G7 in at least some of its configurations - and will allow us to get much more details about the working frequencies and performance obtained in a wide range of uses and applications.
It will certainly be interesting to follow reviews and impressions of all kinds, but the great potential of the Tiger Lake generation at its highest efficiency can be understood from the data the manufacturer promises us on paper - with a body less than 14 millimeters thick and weighing only 907 grams and featuring a high-quality 13-inch screen. , An advanced audio array with four speakers and support for Dolby Atmos as well as a nice battery life of up to 13 hours. Not something we are used to getting from any average modern Windows mobile, nor something that can be achieved by using the big competitor's mobile processors AMD - At least at this point.
