Intel Core i5-L 16G7 + Core i3-L 13G4 Hybrid Processors!

Spread the love

More than a year after Intel showcased their Lakefield hybrid processors, they finally launched the Intel Core i5-L 16G7 and Intel Core i3-L 13G4 hybrid processors!

Here is a quick primer on both of these new Intel Lakefield hybrid processors…

Intel Core i5-L 16G7 + Core i3-L 13G4 Hybrid Processors!


Intel Lakefield : What Is It?

Intel Lakefield is a new family of hybrid processors designed for ultra-compact mobile devices. Offered as a compact Compute SoC, it promises benefits like :

  • Standby power 1/10th of competing designs
  • 50% better graphics performance
  • 40% core area reduction
  • 40% Z height reduction

By leveraging their Foveros 3D die stacking technology, Intel Lakefield combines 4 low-power Tremont cores, with a high-performance 10nm Sunny Cove core, and up to 64 Gen 11 graphics cores, into a package that is just 12 x 12 mm in size, and 1 mm thick.

Intel Core i5-L 16G7 + Core i3-L 13G4 : First Lakefield Hybrid  Processors!

After protracted development, Intel finally announced their first two Lakefield hybrid processors – the Intel Core i5-L 16G7 and Intel Core i3-L 13G4.

They are also officially known as Intel Core processors with Intel Hybrid Technology. Either way, their names are quite a mouthful!

In addition to being the first Intel Core processors using the Foveros 3D stacking technology, they are the first Intel Core processors to :

  • ship with Package-on-Package (PoP) LPDDR4x memory, for reduced board size.
  • feature SoC standby power as low as 2.5 mW – 91% lower than Intel Y-series processors
  • feature native dual internal display pipes to directly support foldable / dual-screen PCs

Both the Intel Core i5-L 16G7 and Core i3-L 13G4 hybrid processors also boast these key features :

  • hardware-guided OS scheduling
    – enabling real-time communication between the CPU and OS scheduler, to run the right apps on the right cores
    – up to 24% better performance per SoC power
    – up to 12% faster single-threaded integer performance
  • AI-optimisation
    – flexible GPU engine compute allows for acceleration of AI-enhanced video stylisation, analytics and image resolution upscaling
  • Intel Gen11 Graphics
    – up to 1.7x better graphics performance, and 54% faster video conversion performance
    – support up to four external 4K displays
  • Gigabit connectivity
    – support for Intel Wi-Fi 6 and Intel LTE solutions
