Intel’s Tiger Lake-U chips could offer a significant performance boost over the current Ice Lake generation.

Benchmarks for a 15 W 4C/8T model (and its 28 W variant) have been spotted on Chinese Q&A website Zhihu.

In one impressive test, the 15 W Tiger Lake-U chip scored around 26% faster than Intel’s Core i7-1065G7 (a 4C/8T Ice Lake-U part with a TDP of 15 W), while the 28 W version scored a whopping 60% faster.

The CPU reportedly features a single-core boost of 4.3 GHz and multi-core boost of 4 GHz.

Intel Tiger Lake processors are expected to arrive in 2020 and will feature some new changes to the architecture. First up, they will have the new Willow Cove cores replacing Sunny Cove cores which are currently featured on Ice Lake processors. Along with the new cores, we will get cache redesigns as stated above, new transistor-level optimizations and enhanced security features.
