Intel issued a new processor, a new logo, and a round of hanging AMD

After experiencing the “true fragrance” baptism of NVIDIA rtx30 Series graphics card, Intel, which held the conference this morning, did not dare to neglect. It took out the 11th generation core processor code named “tiger Lake” and officially went to the next generation. After a brief summary of its new changes, it can be roughly classified into three points: a new willow Cove architecture, a new 10nm superfin process, and a new Xe graphics processing architecture. Compared with the minor repairs and mending in previous years, it is still quite sincere. < / P > < p > specific to the products, the 11th generation core provides a total of 9 models according to two TDPs. The positioning of 12-28w is similar to the original U series, which is suitable for business books and light weight books. < / P > < p > we take the core i7-1185g7 with the strongest performance as an example. Its ice lake adopts a 4-core 8-thread design with a core frequency of 3.0GHz and a maximum of 4.8ghz. At the same time, it integrates a new generation of Xe architecture graphics card with 96 sets of computing units, which is significantly improved compared with the previous generation of ice lake. < / P > < p > in addition, the 11th generation core also integrates the dp4a instruction set prepared for neural network, which can improve AI performance by as much as 5 times, and support high-performance AV1 encoding and decoding, visual sensing and adaptive dimming functions. It supports the PCI 4.0, USB4 and thunderbolt 4 interfaces, and can access one HDR 8K display or four HDR 4K displays at the same time. < / P > < p > at present, many OEM manufacturers, including Lenovo, ASUS, Dell, HP, and Raptor, have scheduled to launch notebooks equipped with the 11th generation core processor. < / P > < p > some of the new products have also appeared in advance, such as Samsung’s new Galaxy Book flex 5g, Acer’s new swift 3 / 5 series, ASUS’ zenbooks, and Lenovo’s three flagship Yoga books. < / P > < p > the new 11 generation core processor is still based on the 10nm process, but it still brings considerable performance improvement. How did this toothpaste come out? Rely on Intel’s latest superfin technology. < / P > < p > What’s more, Intel claims that the technology “achieves the most powerful single node performance enhancement in its history”, which can even match the performance improvement of full node conversion. However, the performance improvement does exist objectively. The reason why it can bring such great changes is that Intel has made a round of adjustment to the original FinFET transistor structure. < p > < p > according to Intel, the superfin process enhances the epitaxial length of the source drain two-stage crystal structure to reduce the resistance, and improves the gate process and gate spacing to make the charge carriers move faster and provide higher driving current for the chip. < / P > < p > at the same time, Intel also uses a new hi-k dielectric material, which increases the capacitance within the same occupied area by five times. < / P > < p > in the end, the superfin process enabled Intel’s new 10nm chip to achieve a one-time performance improvement of about 20%. In the previous 14 nm era, Intel had to go through four iterations of “+ + + + +”, to achieve the same level of performance improvement. < / P > < p > in other words, even if Intel is still “polishing” 10nm, the performance of the chip based on the superfin technology is no longer the same as that of its friends’ 7Nm processor. < / P > < p > but since it is aimed at friends, it is obviously necessary to make a comparison with competitors. In the press conference, Intel chose its own flagship 11 generation core i7-1185g7 and compared it with AMD ryzen 7 4800u, which is also the flagship positioning. < / P > < p > in the end, i7-1185g7 can bring about twice the speed improvement in content creation tasks such as photo editing, while in office 365 office tasks and games, there is a nearly double gap between them, which is basically Intel’s all-round performance surpassing. < / P > < p > but in addition to performance, can the superfin process allow Intel to completely dilute the impact of the process to catch up with more advanced processes? At present, it’s still unknown. We can only wait for the next 11 generations of cool pen phones to go on the market and then see the actual performance. < p > < p > at the architecture day held in early August, Intel has introduced the detailed architecture design of Xe. This is a new and efficient architecture designed by Intel for PC and mobile computing platforms. It is not only suitable for notebooks, but also will launch independent graphics card products for desktop PCs, even data centers and other platforms in the future. < / P > < p > this 11 generation core platform is also the first time to use Xe architecture in the core display part. The performance improvement is obvious. It even supports emerging picture technology such as VRS variable rate coloring. When it comes to graphics performance, games are indispensable. Here, Intel also uses i7-1185g7 and AMD ryzen 7 4800u for comparison. In games, such as,, and, with the same picture quality, they have opened a gap of about 20-30 FPS. < / P > < p > in addition, Intel also found a 10 generation core platform equipped with NVIDIA mx350 for comparison, and the gap was also obvious. < / P > < p > of course, considering that the former is an entry-level mobile display at this stage, it can only ensure that mainstream 3A games can be run in 1080p with medium and low image quality. In this case, the new Xe core display should be comparable to some mid-end laptop display in terms of game performance. In the future, it can not be said that we can achieve 1080p / 60fps 3A game experience in a lightweight book. < / P > < p > in a simple way, Intel has proposed a certification program. As long as OEM notebooks can be labeled with this label, it proves that the product has passed the index test of Intel’s Evo platform, and the experience will also be guaranteed. < / P > < p > these tests include the following points, including “ensure the consistency of response speed when the battery is powered”, “wake up the system within 1 second”, “ensure 9 hours and longer battery life under FHD screen”, and “4 hours of battery life can be obtained by charging the pen battery of FHD screen for 30 minutes” “, the basic emphasis is on the product’s endurance and efficient use. < / P > < p > in addition, all pen products based on Evo platform will also be equipped with 11 generation core processors, so they all support thunderbolt 4, USB 4 and WiFi 6 connectivity, and have certain AI computing power support. < p > < p > Intel says it expects more than 20 laptops that will pass the evo platform test this year. If you have high requirements for the overall performance of the laptop, you may as well give priority to the equipment under the evo platform when purchasing a machine in the future. The endurance and use experience should not be worse. < / P > < p > at the end of the conference, Intel also announced its new logo for itself. If you look at it carefully, the letters “Intel” have not changed much. They just unify the stroke thickness, adjust the position, and remove the circle of lines around the letters. < / P > < p > with the replacement of the logo, Intel has also changed the label map of all its products. The stickers we will see on the new laptop will look like the above figure. Continue ReadingVideo Number assistant internal test online! Four functions let you send 1g video on the computer
