Intel's Lakefield processors won't just be debuting with Intel's 3D Foveros packaging (opens in new tab), they'll also introduce a new nomenclature, as per a UserBenchmark (opens in new tab) listing detailing alleged specifications for the Intel Core i5-L16G7.
The usage of the letter L is likely Intel's way of specifying that it's a Lakefield processor. Lakefield also borrows inspiration from Ice Lake's naming scheme (opens in new tab). The G with the number denotes the graphics tier.
The i5-L16G7 arrives with five cores (opens in new tab)and five threads (opens in new tab)with a 1.4 GHz base and 1.75 GHz boost clock. Lakefield utilizes a design that's similar to Arm's big.LITTLE architecture. The one high-performance core is accompanied by smaller, low-powered cores.
In the case of the i5-L16G7, the five-core part features one Sunny Cove core and four Tremont cores. Logically, the cores will have different clock speeds (opens in new tab). However, it's impossible to tell whether UserBenchmark's reported clock speeds belong to the Sunny Cove core or the Tremont cores.
Lakefield processors will rely on Intel's Gen11 graphics solution and sport up to 64 execution units (EUs). An unidentified Lakefield chip has already gone through the Geekbench 5 benchmark. The processor scored 3,592 (opens in new tab) and 3,659 (opens in new tab) points with the Vulkan API. This would put the Lakefield part in the same ballpark as the dual-core i3-1005G1 Ice Lake chip, which scores between 3,041 and 3,776 on the same API.
Lakefield has already started showing up in devices, such as the Lenovo X1 Fold (opens in new tab), which is scheduled to debut in mid-2020 for $2,499.
