Intel held an official presentation11th generation Tiger Lake processors with updated Iris Xe (Xe-LP) integrated graphics, supporting Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6. The new processors with increased performance and lower power consumption are the optimal solution for today's ultra-thin and light notebooks.
Intel Developers Announce Nine11th generation processors for notebooks in the U-series, now called UP3, and for the Y-series, called UP4. The new 11th generation lineup is still being manufactured on a 10nm process, similar to the current 10th generation Ice Lake models, but gets an updated Willow Core architecture with a new 10nm SuperFin process, which Intel claims will offer more high speeds with lower power consumption. Tiger Lake processors will be able to support 8K HDR monitors or up to 4 4K HDR monitors simultaneously.
Top processor Core i7-1185G7 gets the basefrequency of 3.0 GHz, with the possibility of maximum single-core acceleration up to 4.8 GHz and maximum acceleration of all cores up to 4.3 GHz. It is also equipped with the most powerful version of Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics with 96 CU.
Graphics used for younger Core i3 modelsIntel UHD Graphics, while the new Iris Xe is used for the Intel Core i5 and i7 models. According to Intel, the increase in processor performance will be around 20% for everyday tasks. Photo processing speed will increase 2.7 times, and video editing will speed up 2 times.
Intel developers consider the main innovationuse of Iris Xe graphics. According to them, the 11th Gen Tiger Lake with Iris Xe will achieve the same performance as the 10th Gen Intel Core processor with NVIDIA MX350 discrete graphics.
The performance in Borderlands 3, Far Cry New Dawn and Hitman 2 with the new processors is nearly double that of the previous generations of chips.
During the presentation, a new project was also presentedcertification of devices Project Athena, dubbed Intel Evo. To meet its requirements, the laptop must work with Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 4, have up to 9 hours of battery life, receive a power charge that provides 4 hours of power on recharge in less than 30 minutes, and resume from sleep in less than one second.
By the end of 2020, the market will be launchedover 20 laptop models with Intel Evo certification. More than 150 devices will be developed based on the 11th generation Tiger Lake processors from partners of Acer, Asus, Dell, Dynabook, HP, Lenovo, LG, MSI, Razer and Samsung. The new Intel logo was also presented at the presentation.
