Intel unveiled new additions to its 11th-gen processor processor as part of this year’s Computex show. The processors are based on Intel’s Evo platform and feature images of Iris Xe and WiFi 6. The company has also announced a 5G modem to connect future Windows machines.
The new Core i7-1195G7 chip and the Core i5-1155G7 are part of the Intel U-series processors and boast up to 5GHz. Intel claims that processors offer 25% better performance than competitors. In particular, Intel competes with Ryzen’s AMD processors, which are very popular in Windows operating systems. Intel is also leveraging the capabilities of laptops to optimize its new processors to provide “8x faster speeds and to increase video conversion speeds.” Here are:
- Information i7-1195G7: 4-core / 8-thread, 2.9GHz clock (max turbo boost 5.0GHz at 1-2 cores, 4.6GHz on all cores), support for DDR4 3200Hz memory
- Information i5-1155G7: 4-core / 8-thread, 2.5GHz clock (max turbo boost 4.5GHz at 1-2 cores, 4.3GHz on all cores), support for DDR4 3200Hz memory
The new Core i5 and i7 processors also include Wi-Fi 6 / 6E integration, so you can use the new router. It comes integrated with Intel’s Iris Xe hardware, which allows computer players to play at its best in the previous series. Iris Xe is actually a GPU laptop designed for new generations of processors. We made it clear 11th-gen CPU with integrated graphics, and Iris Xe was able to create interesting pricing on the old line of integrated graphics, demonstrating the ability to play some of the most recent games at low cost.
But most importantly Xe’s GPU performance is a big jump on the Intel’s UHD Graphics 630, which has 17 fps, and a big jump on a number of Intel’s Core i7-1065G7 Iris Plus Graphics 25 W, which has 33 fps. Xe not 1080p at 60 fps, but getting the same look at a higher resolution than Iris’s previous graphics is fun. This is an integrated GPU! It’s not something you are expected to pay for as much as Nvidia’s graphics in computer software. This is the kind of chip you can find in your $ 1,000 Dell or HP laptop and it makes this game, albeit very low, a real possibility.
Intel said more than 60 devices including the new Intel Core i5 and i7 are expected to be available during the holiday season. This includes machines from manufacturers such as Acer, ASUS, Lenovo, and MSI, and the first new batch of sales recently this summer.
Intel’s other major feature is the 5G laptop modem, the Intel 5G Solution 5000. The modem already has 5G port certification worldwide, facilitated by a partnership between Intel and China Mobile, MediaTek, DoCoMo, and HP. The company said it expects more than 30 machines by 2022 to ship with a 5G modem internally, and that Acer, ASUS, and HP will be among the first manufacturers to offer their computers.
With the promise of 5G wireless speeds similar to what you would find in wireless networks, it would be interesting to see if the integrated modem becomes a marketplace for laptops as its specifications are available. Just think of all the laptops you can do that can quickly and easily download high-quality video on the go – it sounds great.
