Intel revealed the first of the architectural details concerning it’s latest product: Tremont, today at the Linley fall processor conference in Santa Clara, California. Tremont, Intel’s latest and most advanced low-powered x86 CPU architecture offers a notable performance boost over all of its predecessors.
“Tremont is Intel’s most advanced low-power x86 architecture to date. We focused on a range of modern, complex workloads, while considering networking, client, browser and battery so that we could raise performance efficiently across the board. It is a world-class CPU architecture designed for enhanced processing power in compact, low-power packages.” said Intel Tremont’s Chief Architect, Stephen Robinson.
The next-generation Tremont with its low-powered x86 microarchitecture furnishes considerable instructions per cycle (IPC) gains generation-over-generation when compared to Intel’s prior low-powered x86 architecture which is designed for augmented processing power in compact low-powered packages. These Tremont-based processors would accredit a whole new generation of innovative form factors for client devices, productive data center products, innovative applications for the Internet of Things (IoT).
When the other technologies across Intel’s wide IP portfolio are combined with Tremont microarchitecture accredits a whole new generation of products. With the help of Intel’s 3D packaging technology Foveros, Tremont is unified within a broader set of Silicon IPs in Lakefield, which would breakthrough creative devices like the newly announced dual-screen Microsoft Surface Neo. The foundation of chips that captures and processes data are performant architectures. To enable new use cases to be driven by smaller form factors, Low-power solutions are quite essential.
Intel Tremont includes numerous advancements in Micro-architecture, Instruction set architecture (ISA), power management and security. It also provides considerable IPC gains generation-over-generation when compared to Intel’s previous low-powered x86 architectures, making Tremont a first-class offering for starting a whole new generation of Intel products across clients, data center offering and Internet of Things (IoT). Tremont’s distinctive 6-wide, 2×3-wide clustered out-of-order decoder in the front end allowing a more effective feed to the broader back end, which is foundational for Performance.
