    Intel confirms it is readying octa-core Tiger Lake CPUs

    The processors were already capable AMD Renoir mobile challengers at 4C/8T.

    How the mighty have fallen - 8 core coming later. Olde Intel would be on it asap
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    Until we see independent benchmarks, "capable" is relative and the majority of marketing focuses mostly on GPU not CPU performance.

    I won't count AMD out just yet.

    Yeah that was the first thing that stood out to me too... they might be capable in very carefully selected benchmarks and while ignoring price differences etc but lets be honest if AMD's mobile cpu's weren't 'good' then intel wouldn't have focused on them so heavily during the release of tiger lake.

    Intels business strategy for atleast the next couple of years is generic headlines.

    They need to try and contain AMD, but they can't and they definitively can't compete.

    They push out rubbish like this regularly, intentionally bland, with no actual data. When the data eventually does arrive it is extremely skewed and still paints a poor picture for them.

    They are attempting to avoid a mass exodus of share holders, currently they have control of enterprise, but they know it is very close to slipping, that us when things become very bleak.

    Sapphire Rapids server chip already in the lab. pcie5/cxl, ddr5, amx tiled matrix operations on bfloat16, avx512 bfloat16, optane memory controller. That's far from a "generic headline". Add to that the 42TFlop FP32 Xe-HP GPU demo and several other Xe GPUs in the lab or in production. The next couple of years is pretty exciting.

    Plus all the P5900 family 5G base station chips, silicon photonics switches, Optane DIMMs, 10nm FPGAs that AMD and NVDA don't compete in.

    We also don't know if AMD have publicised the 'best' they can currently do or if they too are holding a trick or two in reserve. Sauce for the goose, etc.

    Re: Intel confirms it is readying octa-core Tiger Lake CPUs

    It'll be interesting to see the clocks under load - current intel quad cores are very likely to match AMD's clocks at 15 W, but that's with the 8 core models (and better IPC than skylake!). I expect this won't be anywhere near as good as intel fanboys hope - I'm also willing to put money on intel stretching the definition of "15 W TDP" even further with even more aggressive boost profiles

    That's a given for the GPU

    Re: Intel confirms it is readying octa-core Tiger Lake CPUs

    I'm excited for this if they can match AMD clock for clock again or beat them they could have the fastest mainstream part again.

    fishy benchmarks. Another disappointment from Intel

    It all falls on greed, if Intel presented 8 core at Tiger Lake release party the stock might have gone up to much hindering their ongoing stock buy back of 10 billion. Bob Swan said just a week before the release party that they are doing stock buy back because stock is so low at the moment compared to the actual value of Intel.

    Intel are throwing a lot of silicon and financial incentives at the problem of competition. Time will tell who really wins.

    To rephrase a comment by fynxer:
    "...because stock is so HIGH at the moment compared to the actual STATUS of Intel."

    BIG MISTAKE EVER:
    "Swan paid $401,050 that day for 8,021 shares, an average per share price of $50. "
    source: https://www.barrons.com/articles/nikola-stock-has-slipped-founder-trevor-milton-bought-up-shares-51600119445

    Personal estimation: shares will drop to around $30 soon.
