Intel continues to lag far behind AMD. Octa-core Tiger Lake-H processors will be released only at the end of the year
Numerous rumors and leaks have suggested that Intel will introduce high-performance Tiger Lake-H processors earlier this year. And it really happened.
However, yesterday’s announcement could have been a disappointment for many, since the Tiger Lake-H35 line includes only four-core models, while everyone expected eight-core models.
In fact, they will also be released, but later. Much later. According to the source, such CPUs will appear only at the end of this year. Considering that AMD has already introduced the eight-core Ryzen 5000H, and there are also very productive eight-core Ryzen 4000H on the market, this step from Intel does not seem to be the most successful one. On the other hand, if AMD simply uses the same eight-core die for all mobile and desktop APUs of the same generation, then Intel now has only a four-core die, which it uses for Tiger Lake-U and Tiger Lake-H35. And to create eight-core models, the company needs to develop a new crystal. Apparently, Intel has simply not coped with this task yet, and this is bad.
