Leak suggests Intel’s next-gen Core series are indeed called “11th Gen”

Core i9-20900K -> Core i9-11900K?

It appears that Intel’s 10th Gen Core successor has been named… as the 11th Gen Core. This is without a doubt not surprising information, yet it does show a different (more predictable) approach to product naming than NVIDIA (GeForce 10 -> GeForce 20) and AMD (Radeon 500 -> Radeon 5000).

The first 11th Gen Core series CPU to leak is based on Tiger Lake U architecture. These are low power (usually between 15 to 28W) processors aimed at ultra-thin devices. Tiger lake CPUs will feature Intel’s next-generation Xe graphics.

The core count of the CPU (or APU if you prefer) is the same as its predecessors, the Core i7-1185G7 features four cores and eight threads. The base clock is reported at 3.0 GHz, which is an upgrade over previous generations, while turbo clock reading is clearly not accurate.

In terms of graphics performance, the CPU appears to be 5% faster than integrated Radeon Vega in Ryzen 7 4800U (also 15W SKU).
