Sunny Cove as the core core architecture brought with it a series of direct improvements for all Ice Lake processors: AVX-512, 64 EU for its iGPU Gen 11 and a larger IPC, but in addition and apparently, it can be the latest Intel architecture where the denominations by series remain as we know them.
Intel Core i7-1068G7 specifications –
Segmentation by series such as H, U and Y can end as such with Tiger Lake, as sources say the company wants to move away from this traditional segmentation as a new marketing claim. Why is this fact important? Because Intel is more than likely to start segmenting by power / TDP, and this is where its new processor comes in.
The i7-1065G7 has been a breath of new air in the company thanks to its new iGPU Gen11, but in the section of the cores and its power has not stood out as much as expected. The truth is that with a base frequency of 1.3 GHz and a Boost of 3.9 GHz for a TDP of only 15 watts, Intel could only apply a speed in all its 3.5 GHz cores, being the best it could offer to portable with its 10 nm.
This shows that Swan’s have been working hard on polishing their 10 nm and a good example of this is that the i7-1068G7 will arrive as a 4-core and 8-wire processor with a base frequency of 2.3 GHz, a Boost of 4, 1 GHz and a turbo in all 3.6 GHz cores, which favors the aforementioned 28-watt TDP.
This means increasing the base speed by 1 GHz, 200 MHz in the Boost and 100 MHz in all cores compared to the i7-1065G7. In addition, the first rumors of the high-performance H-series with a 45-watt TDP begin to flood the Internet, where it appears that Intel would launch an 8-core processor again with frequencies contained.
The new i7-1068G7 would arrive to take a small step in these sections, showing that Intel is improving the performance of its 10 nm.
