Intel Launches 11th Generation Core ‘Tiger Lake' Laptop Processors
PC Magazine|October 2020
Intel’s next-generation Tiger Lake processors, unveiled this week, will bring refined artificial intelligence processing and dramatically improved graphics performance to new premium ultraportable laptops this fall.

A total of nine Tiger Lake configurations will be available, ranging from a dual-core Core i3-1110G4 with a 1.8GHz base frequency, to a quad-core Core i71185G7 with a maximum boost speed of 4.9GHz and Intel’s brand-new on-CPU graphics processor, Intel’s Iris Xe.

Intel expects these chips to show up in more than 150 new and existing laptop designs from companies such as Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, and Lenovo this fall. Some, including new Yoga models from Lenovo, have already been announced, and more manufacturers are expected to unveil new Tiger-Lake-based designs this week during the IFA trade show in Berlin, traditionally fertile ground for new PC launches.

TIGER LAKE SPECIFICS: 9 NEW CPUS FOR LIGHT LAPTOPS

Intel claims that the new Tiger Lake processors, part of the 11th-generation Core family code-named “Willow Cove,” will offer more than a generational leap in capabilities compared with the 10th-generation Core chips they replace. All of the Tiger Lake processors unveiled this week are U-series chips destined for thin-and-light laptops. Here’s a breakout of the initial Tiger Lake processors, provided by Intel:

The chips range from Core i3 to Core i7 offerings. Intel typically releases new CPU families multiple times each year, and with Tiger Lake, these new U-series laptop processors are coming in the late summer or early fall. Based on past cadences, Intel is also likely to release more powerful H-series versions of Tiger Lake chips, designed for thicker gaming laptops, power laptops, and workstations, although those haven’t been announced yet. The 10th-generation “Comet Lake-H” versions of those chips will remain current for now.
