    The ryzen 4800U is configurable up to 25W TDP, Tigerlake up to 28, both can also go down, Tigerlake to 9W, and Ryzen to 10W. Why the negativity? Its a new product launch and it is looking a lot better than icelake.

    Impossible to know for sure anything from the presentation in terms of what the manufacturer configured the CPU to pull at(TDP). Independent reviews will explain exactly how much increase in performance we should expect.
  • Hifihedgehog - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    "configurable" is not the issue here; "default" is. 28-watt is the default TDP that they are now shipping with that is the issue here. These pie-in-the-sky numbers are based on this sleight-of-hand. Look at the articles online prior to this sanitized press announcement. They have been warning about these 28-watt TDP shenanigans for months now.
  • Hifihedgehog - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    lol. See the next article. "Intel Launches 11th Gen Core Tiger Lake: Up to 4.8 GHz at 50 W, 2x GPU with Xe, New Branding"

    "Up to 4.8 GHz at 50 W."

  • PCWarrior - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    Intel with Iris Graphics has traditionally been 28W. The additional tdp is for the gpu in case you have both cpu and gpu working at the same time in full load like in gaming. In any case they are comparing it against the 4800U which has a tdp of 25W. Also bear in mind that for AMD the tdp figure is meaningless. What is of meaning is the PPT (package power tracking) which for cpus with 105W tdp (e.g. 3900X) is 142W and for cpus with 65W tdp (e.g. 3700X) is 88W. In other words AMD sets the real TDP to be 35.2% higher than the advertised one.

    More importantly in notebooks, AMD applies a power management algorithm which is similar to Intel’s PL1 and PL2 (they call them PPT-Long and PPT-Short respectively). An AMD mobile cpu turbos to PPT-short similar to how Intel turbos to PL2 and then downclocks to whatever frequency is sustained for PPT-Long (which is equal to 1.35xTDP)).

    I don’t know what are the values for PPT-short and PPT-long for the 4800U as AMD has not disclosed them. But we are looking for at least 35% over the TDP figure for PPT-long so a sustained power draw of 33.8W with short boosts to a PPT-short of likely 50W.
  • PCWarrior - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    By the way the nominal tdp for these Intel cpus (including the 1185G7 that boosts to 4.8GHZ) is 15W. They have configurable tdp that can go down to 9W and up to 28W. From the article.

    “These processors have a nominal TDP of 15 W, but can be pushed up or down in power by laptop companies depending on how they build their systems. At the top end is Intel’s Core i7-1165G7, a quad core processor with hyperthreading and the full 12 MB of L3 cache. It has a base frequency of 3.0 GHz, a single-core turbo frequency of 4.8 GHz, and an all-core turbo frequency of 4.3 GHz.”

    The 50W figure you mention is for the H-series cpus, a speculation based on a chart that Intel showed during the Architecture day showing Tigerlake having performance scalability up to 65W.
  • Spunjji - Friday, September 11, 2020 - link

    Dude, the *measured power draw* from the Lenovo Yoga Slim with 4800U is ~25W at boost and ~18W sustained. The *entire system* doesn't consume more than 50W under a parasitic load on both the GPU and CPU. You were here speculating some theoretical number of angels dancing on a pinhead while the actual numbers were already out there.

    Meanwhile we now have confirmation that the 3.0Ghz "base" clocks are at 28W (1.2Ghz at 12W) and the 4.8Ghz turbo is at 50W.

    I hate shills.
  • JasonMZW20 - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    My 4700U hits about 25-30W when both CPU and iGPU are used and plugged in. Full CPU is 15W and doesn't seem to exceed that.

    Competition is good. AMD will have to bring Zen 3 and ULP Navi with LPDDR5, which was already planned with Van Gogh.
  • Solendore - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    Hello there! :) The comparisons were done on 4800U extreme performance power level (~28-30W) vs Intel 1185G7 at peak power (~28-30W). https://www.kitguru.net/components/cpu/joao-silva/...
  • Hifihedgehog - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    Funny. The source tweet is deleted. Not buying it.
  • Solendore - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-tiger-lake... I can provide you with more information sources if needed. But Intel really took the single and quad core (95+% of especially <35W PC usage models don't scale beyond 4 cores in 2020) performance lead by a significant margin, sometimes more than 2X and averaging good 25-30%
