Intel has announced five new consumer processors and five commercial ones that will be added to its Tiger Lake-H or 11th Gen Core H-series generation.
The processors in both the groups have been fitted with three eight-core chips and two six-core chips respectively. All the chips except the flagship Core i9-11980HK clock at 35W (Core i9-11980HK clocks at 65W).
The processors are expected to be fitted in as many as 30 upcoming ultraportables or laptops that are 20mm or thinner, along with more than 80 workstations.
As per Intel, the processors would lead to a 19 percent multithreaded performance improvement compared to the previous generation.
Comet Lake series
The Core i9-11980HK is expected to provide better frame rates in games as compared to its previous processors in the Comet Lake series. These frame rates will be improved on titles like Far Cry New Dawn, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege and Hitman 3.
Intel said that the 11980HK would beat AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX for these games, and added that its processors for light and thin laptops – the Core i5-11400H – would be better in comparison with the Ryzen 9 5900HS on some devices, while being at par on others.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the processors would be able to provide support to up to 44 platform PCIe lanes, while also supporting Optane H20, Discrete Intel Killer WiFi 6E (Gig+), and Thunderbolt 4 connectivity with a bandwidth of up to 40Gbps. The processors are also equipped with Xe Graphics Architecture and Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0.
The commercial chips would provide support to the vPro platform of the company. This platform includes several management and security tools for businesses like Total Memory Encryption, Active Management Technology and Intel’s Hardware Shield.
The chipmaker has asserted that as compared to the predecessor, its Core i9-11950H would be 29 percent faster in performance in media and entertainment, 29 percent faster when it comes to product development and 12 percent faster in work related to financial services.
