At the CES 2020, Intel has introduced its next-generation 10nm core-based processor called the Tiger Lake. Intel didn’t go into detail but did share that the new processor for the laptops is capable of offering double-digit improvements. But to prove the performance, the company also unveiled a 17-inch foldable OLED tablet, codenamed Horseshoe Bend.
The Tiger Lake processors bring huge improvements for AI processing and Thunderbolt 4, which is four times as fast as USB 3.0. According to Intel, the Tiger Lake SoCs are expected to deliver massive gains over 10th-gen Intel Core processors. The processor includes support for the latest display technology and has next-gen I/O technology.
Intel touts with the new Xe graphics (codenamed DG1) architecture. Intel didn’t dwell further but did say that the new Tiger Lake processors built on its 10nm + process could ship this year.
Intel envisions Tiger Lake being used as in foldable-screen and dual-screen PCs and that’s how it showcased a concept at the CES.
Note that the Horseshoe Bend tablet is a concept for now and it has by far the largest foldable OLED display. Intel announces the design is similar to a 12-inch laptop with a foldable touchscreen display that can be opened up to more than 17-inches.
It is possible we would learn more about the Horseshoe Bend tablet soon.
