Intel delivers speeds of 5.0 GHz for laptops
Achieved a company Intel made a big hit earlier in May with the release of the first 11th generation Tiger Lake H series processors for laptops.
But in Computex 2021, The company is also announcing two new chipsets from the 11th generation of the Tiger Lake U series, including the first laptop chip to feature a speed of 5.0 GHz.
Intel announced the Core i7-1195G7 processor – the highest new chip in the U-series lineup – and the Core i5-1155G7, which takes the crown of Intel’s most powerful Core i5 chip as well.
And like the original U-Series 11th-generation chips, the new chips operate in the 12 to 28 watt range.
Both new chips are four cores and feature integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics.
The Core i7-1195G7 has 96 execution units, while the Core i5-1155G7 has 80 implementation units.
Core i7-1195G7 has a base speed of 2.9GHz. But it reaches a maximum of 5.0GHz at single-core speed using Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology.
On the one hand, the Core i5-1155G7 has a base speed of 2.5GHz and a boost speed of 4.5GHz.
Reaching 5GHz is a fairly recent development for laptop CPUs. The first Intel laptop processor has reached the 5 GHz mark in 2019.
Intel 5G Solution 5000:
Along with the new processors, Intel also announced the latest 5G modem solutions for laptops.
The latest solution is a new M.2 card that device makers can incorporate into their designs, called the Intel 5G Solution 5000.
While Intel sold its 5G smartphone modem division to Apple in July 2019, it has continued its efforts in other areas of the next-generation connectivity standard.
In November 2019, Intel and MediaTek jointly announced a partnership to bring 5G connectivity to their processors.
At that time, Mediatek was developing its own 5G solution, especially with the booming smartphone processor business and the need for a competitive solution with Qualcomm and Samsung.
The new modem is the result of a collaboration between Intel, MediaTek and Fibocom. It offers support for 5G below 6GHz and integrated eSIM technology.
Intel says: The Acer, Asus and HP are introducing laptops that combine Tiger Lake chips with the new 5G Solution 5000 cards later this year.
