Intel quietly brought Tiger Lake processors to the desktop as well

Desktop versions of Tiger Lake will not be resold, but will be soldered BGA-packaged directly to small but powerful computers coming to the motherboard.

Intel has recently released new Tiger Lake processors for both the high-performance and Ultrabook classes. In all its silence, however, Tiger Lake has also been brought to the desktop.

Four special processors were recently found in Intel’s Ark database: the Core i3-11100B, i5-11500B, i7-11700B, and i9-11900KB. The product pages did not initially indicate what the processors were used for and the company had not previously used the B mark on its processors, so its significance was not clear at the time.

Soon after the processors came out, Intel has assured Tom’s Hardware that those processors are desktop versions of Tiger Lake processors, but they are not coming for resale. According to the company, it is collaborating with several manufacturers on new high-performance minicomputers. Desktop versions of Tiger Lake are BGA-packaged, meaning they are soldered directly to the motherboard by the manufacturer.

The processors follow Intel’s desktop naming convention: i3 is quad-core, i5 is six-core, and i7 and i9 are eight-core, and they all support Hyper-Threading-SMT technology. Based on the K mark, the Core i9 is distinguished from the i7 by a multiplier lock in addition to the clock frequency. You will find the most important technical features of the processors in the table above. TVB stands for Thermal Velocity Boost, which allows higher than normal Boost clock frequencies while keeping the assembly temperature low enough.
