A new slide leaked by FanlessTech confirms that Intel’s 10th Gen Core series successor is 11th Gen Core series.
So it is not 20th Gen Core series?
Recently we mocked the strange way new products are named in each generation. Intel could have taken the same path NVIDIA did with the GeForce series, where the 10 series (GTX 1080) has been succeeded by 20 series (RTX 2080). However, this is not the case for Intel.
The manufacturer will adopt the 11th Gen Core series for the Tiger Lake-U and (supposedly) for the Rocket Lake-S series, a leaked slide suggests. That said, the NUC systems will not feature the 10th Gen Core series at all. Instead, Intel will launch the 11th Gen series in the second half of this year.
The Phantom Canyon series will feature Core i7 and Core i5 Tiger Lake-U processors with 3rd Party discrete graphics (either NVIDIA or AMD). While the Pather Canyon NUCs will offer Core i7, i5 and also i3 series but these will take a smaller form factor and will only offer integrated graphics (for Tiger Lake series that’s Xe architecture).
A roadmap leaked by FanlessTech “precedes the coronavirus outbreak” so the launch of 11th Gen Core could still shift in time:
