Analysis of Intel 11 generation core: complete change, no longer squeeze toothpaste

There is a Chinese saying that “two tigers are not allowed in one mountain”. Although this usually refers to the relationship between people, it seems to be equally effective for the recent “crash” of the press conferences of well-known consumer electronics enterprises. < p > < p > for example, on the evening of September 1, 2020, when Lao Huang released the RTX 30 series graphics card with doubled performance and new entry-level models in his kitchen, it almost immediately became the object of discussion, ridicule and heartwater. As a result, when Intel held the 11 generation core processor conference the next day, everyone seemed to have a little bit of a “slow down” feeling. Apart from other things, just looking at the relevant discussions on major social platforms, we can see how much of Intel’s limelight has been taken away by NVIDIA’s first mover advantage. < / P > < p > then the question comes. Is the 11th generation core really so unbearable? Of course not. In fact, after we have a detailed understanding of the technical features and performance indicators of Intel’s new processor, we find that its performance is much better than you think, and even the changes it may bring to the market are even greater than RTX 30 series graphics cards. < / P > < p > in the past few years, many people have talked about Intel as a “toothpaste factory”. Although this is somewhat eye-catching and sensational, it is undeniable that from the 6th generation of skylake to the 10th generation of cometlake processor, Intel has not changed the underlying architecture, only by increasing the core, increasing the frequency, and optimizing the process, to maintain the performance growth It’s an indisputable fact. < / P > < p > but on this 11 generation core processor, objectively speaking, Intel really sincerely put forward a completely new product in all aspects. It has a newly designed willow Cove architecture, an internal bus with double bandwidth, a cache system with a capacity increase of 50%, a new iris Xe core graphics card with the same architecture as Intel, and a new 8K video hardware encoder. < / P > < p > in addition, in terms of technical standards, the 11th generation core is also a comprehensive “turnaround”, which can be said to represent the highest level in the field of civil CPU. On the one hand, its 10nm superfin process is at least 10% higher in transistor density than the current TSMC’s “7Nm” EUV process. It can only be said that Intel is not very boastful about the process. < / P > < p > on the other hand, the 11th generation core has brought a series of new technologies including the world’s first lpddr5-5400 memory controller, the world’s first integrated PCIe 4.0 controller, and the world’s first lightning 4 and USB 4 integrated controller. So to some extent, Intel’s sincerity is really enough this time. < / P > < p > may be the latest process at present, and a series of latest technologies have been piled up. How is the performance of the 11 generation core processor? I believe this may be the most concerned topic of most friends. < / P > < p > from the known product information, the 11 generation core processor mainly includes two series, namely, the low-voltage model with the last digit of the model 5, the low-voltage model with TDP between 15-28w, and the ultra-low-voltage model with the last digit of the model of 0 and TDP of 7-15w. Compared with the previous Intel product line, it is equivalent to U series and Y Series. < / P > < p > of course, because core 11 processors are all used in laptops and low-voltage (such as NCU) platforms, it means that we can’t get devices that can be directly used for running points in a short time. However, from some information that has been released, we can still find a few words about the performance level of the 11th generation core. For example, according to Intel, the CPU performance of the 11 generation core is 20% higher than that of the previous generation, the graphics performance is twice as high, and the AI computing power is as much as five times as that of the previous generation. Considering that the new Xe core display itself adds a new instruction set for machine learning, this improvement is not surprising. < / P > < p > in addition, another data released by AnandTech shows that, compared with the competitor sharp dragon 7 4800u processor, core 11’s sub flagship i7-1165g7 has 28% higher computing score in sysmark 25, 67% higher graphics performance in 3dmark firestrike project, and 300% advantage in machine learning related tests. If these data are true, it will undoubtedly mean that Intel has defeated its rival’s eight core processor with a new architecture of four core processors, which is still frightening. < / P > < p > it is worth noting that Intel not only released new mobile processor yesterday, but also announced a platform certification plan called “Intel Evo”. < / P > < p > according to official data, it has “Intel” All the “Evo” laptops are jointly developed by Intel and notebook manufacturers. They will not only be equipped with 11 generation core mobile platforms, but also have to have at least 9 hours of endurance, wake up from sleep in 1 second, and be equipped with a fast charging function that can charge half the power of the device in 30 minutes. In addition, wifi6 and lightning 4 connectivity are also listed as “Intel Evo” required subjects. < / P > < p > What does this mean? On the surface, “Intel Evo” means that a laptop with this certification must have excellent endurance, powerful performance in a lightweight book, and excellent scalability. However, this kind of “authentication” mode, which packages the processor with other computer functions and even some peripheral chips, actually limits the chip selection of PC manufacturers in disguise. This does not prevent us from thinking about the classic Intel “Centrino”. At that time, the birth of the Centrino platform objectively helped some consumers avoid “stepping on the thunder”, allowing them to buy notebook computer products with a certain level of guarantee in various aspects, which made Intel’s glory in the early core Era. But the question is, when the time comes to 2020, can the “Intel Evo” with a new look be recognized by the market again?
