Intel today announced the availability of its 11th-generation Core H-series “Tiger Lake” processors for mobile PCs.
“The 11th-generation Intel Core H-series processors take mobile gaming, content creation and commercial workstation systems to new heights,” Intel corporate vice president and general manager Chris Walker says. “These new H-series processors are an exciting extension of our 11th-generation mobile family with double-digit single-core and multi-core performance improvements, leading gameplay, direct-attached storage, and 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes for true enthusiast-level platform bandwidth. 11th-generation H-series is the industry’s most performant mobile processor that empowers users to game, create and connect with leadership performance at any enthusiast form factor.”
11th-generation Core H-series processors are based on 10-nanometer SuperFin process technology and are led by the flagship Intel Core i9-11980HK processor, which Intel calls the “world’s best gaming laptop processor.” The firm claims that it delivers the highest performance in laptops for gaming, content creators, and business professionals reaching speeds of up to 5 GHz. The chipsets offer up to 8 cores and 16 threads and can directly access high-speed GDDR6 memory attached to a graphics card. Intel claims that the processors offer 2.5 times the total PCIe bandwidth to the CPU compared with their predecessors and three times the total PCIe bandwidth compared with competing processors.
Other new features include 20 PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes, a first, with Intel Rapid Storage Technology bootable in Raid 0; up to 44 total PCIe lanes that include 24 PCIe Gen 3.0 lanes from a dedicated platform controller hub; memory support up to DDR4-3200; Thunderbolt 4 with transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps; discrete Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+); and dual embedded DisplayPort capabilities.
Intel also announced new Intel vPro H-series processors, which include both Core and Xeon variants. This new processor family is led by the 8-core and 16-thread Intel Core™ i9-11950H and Intel Xeon W-11000 series mobile processors. The firm says these chipsets offer unrivaled business-class PC performance with comprehensive hardware-based security, and they’re aimed at PCs and workstations for engineers, data scientists, content creators, and financial analysts.
The 11th-generation Intel Core Mobile H-series and Intel Xeon W-11000 series processors will power over 80 enthusiast laptop designs across consumer, commercial, and workstation segments this year, Intel says.
