Chip giant Intel on Sunday announced two new additions to the line-up of 11th Gen Tiger Lake-U Core processors for thin-and-light Windows-based laptops during a virtual presentation at the Computex 2021 trade show.
The two new Tiger Lake CPUs are called Core i7-1195G7 and Core i5-1155G7 and have Intel’s Iris Xe integrated graphics.
Coming to Intel i7-1195G7 CPU, it has a single-core turbo speed of up to 5GHz and all-cores speed of up to 4.6GHz, a 12 MB cache, and 96 graphics execution units.
Further, the GPU frequency of this CPU has been boosted from 1.35GHz to 1.40GHz while the base frequency has been dropped marginally from 3.00GHz to 2.90GHz.
On the other hand, the Intel i5-1155G7 CPU supports a single-core turbo speed of up to 4.5GHz and an all-cores turbo speed of up to 4.3GHz, an 8 MB cache, and 80 graphics execution units.
The GPU frequency of this CPU has been improved from 1.30GHz to 1.35GHz while the base frequency has been lowered from 2.60GHz to 2.50GHz.
Both the CPUs offer four core and eight-thread configurations, use DDR4-3200 RAM or LPDDR4X-4266, and have an operating range of 12-28W.
The laptops built with the 11th Gen Intel Core processors will include these features:
- Deliver up to 5GHz in high volume thin and light designs
- Offer up to 25% overall application performance advantage vs. competition
- Accelerate the number of designs with Intel Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+)
- Enable ISV optimizations to deliver up to 8x faster transcoding and up to double the video editing speed with AI acceleration
Here’s a look at all the 11th Gen Intel Core Processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics line-up:
According to Intel, more than 60 designs with the new 5GHz Core i7-1195G7and Core i5-1155G7 are expected by this holiday season, with laptops from Acer, ASUS, Lenovo, and MSI available this summer.
“We’ve taken the world’s best processor for thin-and-light Windows laptops and made the experience even better with the addition of our two new 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics,” Chris Walker, Intel Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Mobility Client Platforms, said in a press release.
“In addition, we know real-world performance and connectivity are vital to our partners and the people that rely on PCs every day, so we’re continuing that momentum with more platform capabilities and choice in the market with the launch of our first 5G product for PCs – the Intel 5G solution 5000.”
Alongside the CPUs, Intel also unveiled its first 5G product for PCs – the new Intel 5G Solution 5000.
It can deliver download speeds of up to 4.7GB per second and upload speed of up to 1.2GB per second, which is nearly five times increase in speed over Intel Gigabit LTE from anywhere.
For the new modem, Intel has partnered with MediaTek on product definition, development, certification, and support of 5G modem solutions for the next generation of PC experiences and Fibocom to supply 5G M.2 solutions (FM350-GL).
By the end of this year, Acer, ASUS, and HP are expected to enable modern connected laptops with the Intel 5G Solution 5000 based on 11th Gen Intel Core U- and H-series processors. Also, over 30 designs are expected in 2022.
