Intel announces 11th Gen Core ‘Tiger Lake’ processors with Iris Xe graphics
Intel has finally taken the wraps off the 11th Gen Core lineup that includes 9 CPUs across the Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 families. These processors aim thin and light laptops. Intel also calls these processors “world’s best processor for thin and light laptops.”
The 11th Gen Core processors use four of Intel’s latest cores built with the Willow Cove microarchitecture. This is a slightly modified version of the Sunny Cove microarchitecture used in Intel’s 10th Generation Ice Lake processors. The new microarchitecture helped in achieving better performance and 4.8 GHz peak clock speed. Intel has used Intel’s 10nm SuperFin manufacturing process that users improved transistor gates to reduce power leakage and increase performance at lower voltages
Intel claims that new chips will offer 20 percent faster speeds for day-to-day tasks, 20 percent increase in “system-level power,” and better battery life.
Tiger Lake uses Intel’s new Xe-LP graphics architecture. It increases the raw thread count and compute count per execution unit. Intel claims that this Iris Xe GPU will help laptops offer better graphics performance. Users can expect up to 2X higher frame rates in demanding games at 1080p.
Tiger Lake also introduces support for Wi-Fi 6, USB 4, Thunderbolt 4, and internal PCIe 4.0 interconnect. It also supports DDR5 RAM. There’s an improvement to the built-in AI engine. It also brings support for 8K HDR displays.
