In early May, Intel made headlines with the launch of its first 11th generation Tiger Lake H-series processors for high-end laptops. Recently, Intel continues to announce a pair of new U-series chips of the 11th generation. One of them marks the first 5.0 GHz clock speed milestone on Intel’s low-voltage U chip line.
Specifically, Intel launched Core i7-1195G7, the most powerful processor chip in the U-series. And Core i5-1155G7, also the most powerful chip of Intel’s Core i5 series.
Like the original 11th-generation U-series chips, these two new processors operate in the 12W to 28W range. Both new chips have a 4-core/8-thread configuration and use Intel’s Iris Xe integrated graphics chip (Core i7-1195G7 has 96 EUs, while Core i5-1155G7 has 80 EU).
The Core i7-1195G7 has a base clock speed of 2.9 GHz, but can boost the maximum single-core speed up to 5.0 GHz using Intel’s Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology. The Core i5-1155G7 has a base clock speed of 2.5 GHz and boosts to 4.5 GHz.
Two new Intel processors promise to power ultra-thin and light laptops, to achieve higher performance when needed, while still being able to save power with basic tasks .
Besides, Intel also launched the latest 5G modem solution for laptops. It’s a new M.2 modem chip, which manufacturers can integrate into their products, also known as Intel 5G Solution 5000. While Intel has sold the entire modem chip production line 5G smartphone for Apple, which continues to produce 5G modem chips for laptops.
The new modem chip is a collaboration between Intel, MediaTek and Fibocom, providing 5G technology with 6GHz band and integrated eSIM. Intel said that manufacturers Acer, Asus and HP will all launch laptops using the new Tiger Lake chip and 5G Solution 5000 later this year.
