It was rumoured that Intel would announce new 'ultra-gaming' focused processors at CES this week, and they have indeed done just that.
Touted as their 'fastest laptop processors', the 'Tiger Lake' H35 CPU's for laptops are now confirmed, with a faster integrated-GPU, better Wi-Fi compatibility, and much more.
With ARM chips currently making waves in the tablets, smartphones and laptops, eyes have been on Intel to release a line of CPU's that could almost compete with these.
With that, lets look into what these new H35 CPU products offer.
A laptop that has this chip installed can freely state that it can run up to 5GHz, a feat not possible until now, alongside support for PCI-Express 4.0, so the bus speeds between this CPU and a GPU will be exponentially faster to move data around.
- Intel Core i7-11375H - The 'Tiger Lake' 35W flagship at 4.3 GHz, with a 5.0 GHz turbo boost, and 12MB of cache.
- Intel Core i7-11370H - 4.3 GHz, 4.8 GHz turbo boost
- Intel Core i5-11300H - 4.0 GHz, 4.4 GHz at turbo boost, 8MB of L2 cache.
It's notable that their new 'Xe iGPU' is now official, and coming to these products, which look to achieve 70FPS for most games, such as 'Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order' and 'Hitman 3'.
4K gaming on a laptop now seems possible with just these chips, with the 'Xe' achieving 2.6 'teraflops' of performance, which essentially means, many games are going to run at full-speed at a high resolution.
They are also stating that it beats the AMD 4800HS and 4900H by 11%, which is a significant jump in the CPU-world.
Intel also brought out a press release to celebrate the launch of these three processors:
Intel launched a new line of 11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors for gaming that extends the 11th Gen mobile family of products and pushes the limits of what’s possible for enthusiast-level gaming in laptops as thin as 16 millimeters. Led by the Intel® Core™ i7 Special Edition 4-core processor with up to 5 gigahertz (GHz) Turbo, these H35 processors are specifically targeted for ultraportable gaming. They feature new Gen 4 PCIE architecture for connecting to latest discrete graphics and deliver amazingly low latency and immersive game play on the go. At CES, Acer, ASUS, MSI and Vaio announced new systems powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core H35-series processor for ultraportable gaming, with more than 40 designs from top manufacturing partners launching in the first half of 2021.
For mobile enthusiasts who want desktop-calibre gaming and creation performance, Intel also announced an 8-core processor that will start shipping later this quarter. This platform is unique in the industry with features that would normally only be found in high-end desktop systems – including up to 5GHz, Gen 4 PCIE x20 architecture for fastest storage and discrete graphics, and Intel® Killer™ Wi-fi 6E (Gig+). - Intel Press Release CES 2021
