Intel has announced the new 11th Gen Intel Core H-series chipsets based on the Tiger Lake mobile platform. The new CPUs are aimed at gaming enthusiasts and creators. The company has launched a total of 10 chipsets for high-end devices and for the commercial vPro-enabled models. Intel Core i9-11980HK is the flagship processor and is touted to be “World’s Best Gaming Laptop Processor.” It is said to deliver the highest performance in laptops for gaming, content creators and business professionals reaching speeds of up to 5.0 gigahertz (GHz).
The latest 11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors are based on 10nm SuperFin process tech and can reach up to 5.0 GHz with single and dual-core turbo performance and up to eight cores and 16 threads and PCIs Gen 4 support.
Chris Walker, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of the Mobile Client Platforms Group at the launch commented, “11th Gen Intel Core H-series processors take mobile gaming, content creation and commercial workstation systems to new heights. These new H-series processors are an exciting extension of our 11th Gen 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 Gen 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.”
The newly launched CPUs has direct access to the high-speed GDDR6 memory attached to the graphics card. This enables higher framerates with lower latency, and load large textures faster during gameplay. In addition to this, the processors will also offer 2.5 times the total PCIe bandwidth to the CPU compared with the 10th Gen H-series processors, and three times the total PCIe bandwidth compared with other industry processors.
Apart from this, the 11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors offer 4k HDR/Dolby Vision video streaming, rich configurations with fast storage, hybrid Intel Optane storage for high performance and capacity, 6GHz Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+) support, and Thunderbolt 4 with up to 40 gigabytes (GBs) per second for faster connections.
Furthermore, the new platform will include 20 lanes of PCIe Gen 4 with Intel Rapid Storage Technology bootable in Raid 0 and up to 44 total PCIe lanes that include 24 PCIe Gen 3.0 lanes from a dedicated platform controller hub. With memory support of up to DDR4-3200, the new mobile processors also include Thunderbolt 4 with transfer speeds up to 40Gbps and Dual Embedded Display Port integrated for power-optimized companion display.
Besides this, the company has also launched new Intel vPro H-series processors led by the eight-core and 16-thread Intel Core i9-11950H and Intel Xeon W-11000 series mobile processors. This is based on the 11th Gen Intel vPro platform for engineers, data scientists, content creators and financial analysts who need to tackle multi-threaded, performance-intensive applications at their desk. These new platforms will offer Xeon + Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory. Whereas the Intel Hardware Shield will be exclusively available on the Intel vPro platform, as delivered by 11th Gen Intel Core vPro mobile processors in order to provide the most comprehensive hardware-based security for business to help stop ransomware and cryptomining attacks for Windows-based systems.
It also equips Intel Control-flow Enforcement Technology, to help shut down an entire class of attacks that long evaded software-only solutions.
