Intel announces 11th Gen Core ‘Tiger Lake-H 10nm Laptop CPUs
Intel has launched new 11th Gen laptop CPUs based on the ‘Tiger Lake’ architecture. These are 10nm mobile processors for laptops. Intel also promises up to 19% better multi-threaded performance than in the predecessor.
The newly launched processor family includes Core i9 and Core i7 processors with eight cores each along with a six-core Core i5 processor. There are also two Xeon W-series processors aimed at commercial laptops.
These Tiger Lake processors use ‘Willow Cove’ core architecture and are fabricated using a 10nm SuperFin process. Memory support goes up to DDR4-3200. It also features 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes for high-speed discrete GPU and NVMe SSD connection.
The new 11th Gen Core CPUs also feature a UHD Graphics integrated GPU based on Intel’s new Xe-LP architecture. These processors also support Thunderbolt 4 connectivity with 40Gbps data transfer speeds, dual 4K displays on a single port and Wi-Fi 6E.
The top-end Core i9-11980HK boasts to be the world’s best mobile gaming processor. It is fully unlocked and overclockable depending on what kind of cooling system a laptop is using. It has a 2.6GHz base frequency and can run at up to 3.3GHz or up to 5GHz on two cores using Intel’s Turbo Boost Max 3.0. It also supports FHD screens up to 360Hz or 4K displays up to 120Hz.
Intel Core i7-11800H, i5-11400H and the i5-11260H CPUs lack Turbo Boost Max 3.0.
Intel confirmed that they have already shipped over 1 million Tiger Lake-H processors to partners. We can expect over 80 devices with the new Intel Tiger Lake H-series processors in the coming months from different OEMs including Dell/Alienware, Asus ROG, Lenovo Legion, HP, MSI and more.
The newly launched Xeon processors are Xeon W-11955M and Xeon W-11855M. These processors aim mobile workstations instead of gaming laptops.
