Intel unveils its new line of Tiger Lake processors at CES 2020. The processors double the graphics performance when compared to the previous generation. As a result, thin and light laptops gain access to high definition gaming and significantly improved processing power.
On stage at CES 2020, Intel showed a new Tiger Lake processor running a processing-heavy game on a thin and light laptop. Intel emphasized several times how the Tiger Lake processors bring increased processing power to thinner devices that use Intel integrated graphics.
Tiger Lake-powered devices are built on Intel's Xe architecture. As pointed out by Anandtech, this architecture targets sub-25W power on the GPU, which lines up well with Intel's clear emphasis on bringing powerful processing to thinner and lighter devices.
In addition to the Tiger Lake processor line, Intel gave a quick tease of its first discrete processor, the DG1. Intel ended its time on stage with a brief demonstration of the processor.
Intel matched some of what we expected and speculated earlier but also added some specific numbers. The most noteworthy being that Intel promises a doubling of processing power over previous generations of processors with Tiger Lake.
