The Intel Core i7-1180G7 is a power efficient quad-core SoC for laptops and Ultrabooks based on the Tiger Lake-U generation that should be announced in the third quarter of 2020. It integrates four Willow Cove processor cores (8 threads thanks to HyperThreading). The clock speed is not yet known, 3 GHz base did leak and the Turbo clock speed should be above 4 GHz. Thanks to a new architecture, the CPU should be faster at the same clock speed compared to the Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7.
Another novelty is the integrated Xe graphics card based on the completely new Gen 12 architecture. It should offer a significantly higher performance compared to the older Iris Plus G7 (Ice Lake).
Other improvements from Ice Lake should be also integrated in Tiger Lake like the AI hardware acceleration and the partial integration of Thunderbolt and Wifi 6 in the chip. In addition to this, the i7 supports vPro for easy remote management.
The chip is produced in the improved 10nm+ process at Intel that should be comparable to the 7nm process at TSMC (e.g. Ryzen 4000 series).
