Intel has just announced a couple of their ‘Tiger Lake’ laptop chipsets based on the 10nm manufacturing process that can boost up to an industry-first 5 GHz on U-series chips aimed at power savings.
Intel I7-1195G7 Specs
The flagship CPU from Intel’s ‘Tiger Lake’ laptop platform comes in with 4 cores and 8 threads and a boost frequency of 5 GHz.
The I7-1195G7 operates at 12W-28W and features the companies own Intel Xe integrated graphics.
Intel I5-1155G7 Specs
The I5 is quite similar to the I7 in terms of its spec sheet, it has 4 cores and 8 threads as well and operates at the same TDP.
It boosts up to 4.5 GHz and idles at 2.5 GHz and comes with Intel’s very own integrated Xe graphics as well.
Both U-series processors will be powering thin and light laptops. Along with the U-series processors Intel also announced their new 5000 series 5G modem based on the m.2 platform for laptops.
“We’ve taken the world’s best processor for thin-and-light Windows laptops and made the experience even better with the addition of our two new 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics. In addition, we know real-world performance and connectivity are vital to our partners and the people who rely on PCs every day, so we’re continuing that momentum with more platform capabilities and choice in the market with the launch of our first 5G product for PCs: the Intel 5G Solution 5000.” – Chris Walker, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of Mobility Client Platforms.
The new 5G modem from Intel is capable of handling download speeds up to 4700 Mbps and upload speeds of 1250 Mbps. It connects over the PCIe 3.0 interface and supports a wide variety of 6Ghz network bands.
