Must read

Intel has finally taken the wraps off its latest generation of processors. The new Tiger Lake chips from Intel is its 11th-generation of processors, and offers features such as Thunderbolt 4 support, WiFi 6, and a lot more. Intel’s announcement today focused on processors for laptops, with the company unveiling U-series processors aimed at thin and light laptops.

Intel’s announcement has a total of 9 new processors, with the Core i7-1185G7 at the top of the stack. This particular processor features 4 cores/ 8 threads and operates at a base frequency of 3.0GHz. It also comes with Intel’s new Iris Xe graphics, which go up to 1.35GHz on the i7-1185G7.

Tiger Lake is built on a 10nm process similar to Intel’s current Ice Lake chips. However, the company says that it has upgraded the new processors to the Willow Core architecture with a new ’10nm SuperFIN’ design. Intel claims this offers better speeds at lower power consumption, something that’s a must, especially for laptop processors.

Here are all the processors announced today:

According to the company, the new graphics offer up to twice the performance of the last generation. The company even showed off a demo where the Iris Xe graphics performed better than a 10th-gen processor paired with an MX350 GPU.

Intel EVO Platform

Intel also announced a new platform of PCs. Building on the premise offered by Project Athena, Intel’s new Evo platform is aimed at helping PC buyers know that the device they’re purchasing will meet high quality standards. For a laptop to get the Evo branding, it has to satisfy requirements including WiFi 6 support, Thunderbolt 4, 9 hour battery life on a charge, and fast system wakes in less than a second.

Intel says that over 20 Evo verified designs will be available by the end of the year.
