    28-watt TDP, instead of 15-watt default. Good luck with that. They bumped up the TDP to give the illusion of increased performance.
  • Unashamed_unoriginal_username_x86 - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    This looks like a copy paste but you swapped AMD and Intel
  • poohbear - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    Why would you say RIP AMD? You know any innovation intel does is BECAUSE of the competition, right? Intel was complacent for years.
  • Meteor2 - Thursday, September 3, 2020 - link

    Indeed. These new Intel chips only exist because of AMD's resurgence. But if the new Intel chips really are this much better (I don't think they are, but "if"), then we face the possibility of losing AMD and Intel sinking back to its old sitting-on-its-hands ways.
  • Hifihedgehog - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    Ah, the 28-watt TDP generation. It's a tired, slow, and addled tiger that is not worthy of consideration. Moving on.
  • IntelUser2000 - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    Boo!! Intel marketing, get out of here!

    Today should have meant they send notebooks to Anandtech, Notebookcheck and other reputable sites so they can test them and WE can determine whether 11th Gen Core lives up to the fluff! But this "launch" is again fluff, nothing of significance.
  • Alistair - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    A bunch of nonsense Intel marketing. Ryzen 4000 laptops were already ahead, and you can buy 6 core models for $560 USD. If TigerLake is only for laptops under $550 they have a sale...
  • psychobriggsy - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    Indeed - it's great for Intel if TigerLake SKUs that match or beat the AMD parts are available at competitive prices to the AMD parts.

    And this is likely where AMD will compete, by dropping the prices to the OEMs for Renoir. Which is a temporary solution. Cezanne will hopefully help with CPU and clocks, but the GPU is still Vega. Van Gogh is the odd one - it might have a far better GPU than RNR or CZN, and compete with the 7W-12W TGLs.

    It's good that Intel have finally got something to show in the 10nm mobile CPU arena, and the high base clocks and turbo, and new CPU core, are going to put Intel in a strong position. Am concerned that the default TDP for this is now 28W, not 15W which is now the cTDP setting. AMD will now have to follow suit surely with CZN.

    But I'll wait for a wider spread of benchmarks in real world products before declaring an outright winner.
  • Alistair - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    reputation leads to high prices with the public, but knowledgeable people are only buying Ryzen 4000 for the most part right now

    more cores, more productivity performance, better battery life, same gaming performance
  • GNUminex_l_cowsay - Wednesday, September 2, 2020 - link

    The 12MB L3 cache is concerning. On desktop doubling your L3 for a bigger number and better performance in a limited number of applications is fine since the static power consumption isn't an issue. But in an ultra-portable you need stronger argument, or a way to reduce the static power cost, or else you will just take a bite out of your idle battery life with no benefit across most applications.
