Intel just unveiled its Tiger Lake-H family, otherwise known as 11e Intel Core H-series generation, aimed at laptop gamers and content creators. The American founder also took advantage of the event to announce the launch of a new pair of Xeon processors for mobile workstations.
Thanks to its Willow Cove core, Intel claims the title of the world’s fastest laptop processor in single-wire mode, with a 12% improvement, as well as a 19% improvement in performance in multi-wire mode compared to its predecessors. Comet Lake from 10e generation. While much of the semiconductor industry faces shortages, Intel says 80 laptop models are in the works, and more than a million chips have already been shipped to manufacturers. laptop.
The H-series chips are built using the 10-nanometer SuperFin process, have 20 PCIe Gen 4 lanes attached to the processor, 44 additional Gen 3 lanes are available on the platform, as well as support for Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6E. Compared to its immediate predecessor, the i9-11980HK was able to beat an i9-10980HK by 5-21% in some games, says Intel, while also outperforming a Ryzen 9 5900HX launched earlier this year from 11-26. %.
No comparison with Apple’s M1
Comparing an i5-11400H to a Ryzen 9 5900HS, the i5 was able to record numbers between 97% and 112% on a series of games, Intel points out. Although most of the H-series are expected to come with separate graphics cards, the chips arrive with 32EU graphics processors that use Intel’s Xe architecture, which the foundry claims can handle. “fast” 4K video workloads. They also come with AI-based features, like removing an object in a video without removing all the frames.
Compared to 10 chipse generation, the i9-11980HK delivers 22% faster photo processing, 20% faster video editing, and 14% faster Office workloads. Compared to the Ryzen 5900HX, those numbers are 18%, 24%, and 19% respectively. Compared to a Coffee Lake i7-9850H released in 2019, the i9-11950H offers 24% faster single-wire integer computation, 52% faster multi-wire integer computation, 49% better performance on media workloads, and entertainment, and 36% better performance on general operations.
Users who wish to use ECC memory are still forced to use the Xeon W-11955M or W-11855M. While Intel was happy enough to compare itself to AMD, the company did not attempt the comparison with Apple and its M1 chip. When asked about this, Intel representatives were timid and indicated that they were able to provide “more solutions” and form factors. Apple currently uses its M1 chip to power its Mac Mini, MacBook, and iMac. Last month, the company launched its 10-nanometer Xeon Scalable processors, based on Ice Lake.
