Intel officially introduces Tremont low-power CPU architecture


Intel Tremont low-power CPU Architecture

Intel has unveiled its new low-power x86 CPU micro architecture code-named Tremont, which will be integrated within Lakefield chipsets. Lakefield processors combine a hybrid CPU architecture Tremont with Intel’s 3D packaging Technology Foveros for thin and light form factors. Lakefield processors will power the recently announced dual-screen Surface Neo.

Tremont features an Intel Core-Class branch predictor with a 6-wide (2×3-wide clustered) out-of-order decoder for improved performance. It also has four wide allocation, ten execution ports on the back-end, and dual load/store pipelines. It comes with configurations up to quad-core and 4.5MB of L2 cache. However, the size of the L2 cache will depend on the product.

The low-power CPU architecture delivers significant instructions per cycle (IPC) gains gen-over-gen prior to Intel’s previous generation’s low-power chips. Tremont also supports few technologies from Intel which includes:

  • Accelerator interfacing Instructions
    • Efficient and Scalable work-dispatch and synchronization to accelerators
  • CPU rooted secure boot
    • Intel Trusted Execution Technology
    • Intel Boot Guard
  • Intel Speed Shift
    • Improved responsiveness with faster hardware controlled frequency changes
  • Intel Total Memory Encryption
    • Improve Confidentiality protection in memory form physical attacks

However, the company didn’t provide any release date for it. It’s been almost a year since Lakefield was introduced, so we don’t have to wait much longer.
