In order to offer unmatched capabilities for real-world productivity, collaboration, creation, gaming as well as entertainment across Windows and ChromeOS-based laptops, Intel has now unleashed a new era of laptop performance with the launch of its 11th Gen Intel Core processors that comes along with Intel Iris Xe graphics (code-named “Tiger Lake”) and claim to be the world’s best processors for thin-and-light laptops.
The 11th Gen Intel Core processors optimize power efficiency with leading performance and responsiveness while running at significantly higher frequencies versus prior generations by leveraging Intel’s new SuperFin process technology. More than 150 designs based on 11th Gen Intel Core processors are expected from partners including Acer, Asus, Dell, Dynabook, HP, Lenovo, LG, MSI, Razer, Samsung and others.
“11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics are a major leap forward in real-world processor performance and are the best laptop processors we have built,” said Gregory Bryant, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group.
With scalable performance across the 7- to 28-watt thermal envelope, nine processor configurations across two package designs for form factor flexibility and up to 4.8 GHz turbo frequency, 11th Gen Intel Core processors provide the single-core speed crucial for advanced workloads on thin-and-light laptops.
“Based on extensive and deep collaboration between Intel and Google, we’re able to optimize the user experience, and we are thrilled to be bringing the next generation of Chromebooks to market-powered by 11th Gen Intel Core,” said John Solomon, vice president of ChromeOS.
Furthermore, Intel unveiled the Intel Evo platform brand for laptop designs verified to the second edition specification and KEIs of the Project Athena innovation program. Based on 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics, devices featuring the Intel Evo badge are verified to be the best laptops for getting things done5. More than 20 verified designs are expected this year.
“From productivity and content creation to entertainment and gaming, when you pick a system powered by 11th Gen Intel Core – especially one of our new Intel Evo co-engineered and verified designs – you know you are getting the best laptop experience possible,” added Bryant.
Intel also added that its Evo platforms also feature best-in-class wired and wireless connectivity9 with integrated Thunderbolt 4 universal cable connectivity and Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), as well as premium audio, webcam, and display, all wrapped in sleek thin-and-light form factors for a premium experience.

On the basis of 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics and verified to the second edition specification and key experience indicators of Project Athena under an intensified testing methodology, Intel and its co-engineering partners are once again raising the bar for laptop experiences.
The company claims that the 11th Gen Intel Core processors are the first in the industry with hardware-supported Dolby Vision, delivering more immersive content experiences and improving system-level power by approximately 20 percent versus the previous generation, translating to more than an hour of additional video streaming on battery.
With up to 2x game performance over the previous generation, play Borderlands 3, Far Cry New Dawn, Hitman 2 and other popular game titles for the first time at 1080p on integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics and in a thin-and-light design.
“The new 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Iris Xe graphics are delivering incredible performance and responsiveness to enable Windows customers around the world to be more productive and have fun today and in the future,” said Panos Panay, chief product officer at Microsoft.
As per the specification revealed by the tech major, the 11th Gen Intel Core processors claim to deliver the best combination of the innovative compute engines needed for real-life workloads.
