After much anticipation and leaks, Intel has officially announced the new Tiger Lake-H, vPro, and Xeon processors, a step above the previous iterations with more cores and crazier performance.
The new Tiger Lake-H mobile processors will feature Willow Cove cores built on the new 10nm SuperFln architecture, PCIe 4.0 support, Thunderbolt 4, Intel Killer WiFi 6/6E and 32EU Intel UHD Graphics with Xe architecture. The platform I/O bandwidth gets a huge upgrade with up to 20 PCIe Gen 4 ports and up to 44 PCIe lanes, which is twice the PCIe bandwidth compared to its 10th Gen processors. It’s also no doubt that OEM will definitely be pairing the processor with the latest Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics.
Using the PCIe Gen 4 ports to connect Get 4 SSD, you can utilize RAID mode with the new Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) to accelerate your gaming performance further and even boot up your system with the same SSD.
The new flagship for the processor, I9-11980HK comes with eight-cores and 16-threads, running at 3.3Ghz with memory support up to DDR4 3200 Mhz. With the Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, you can boost two of your cores up to 5.0Ghz with the rest hovering around above 4.5Ghz.
Intel also made sure to cater to its commercial audience with the new vPro H-series led by the eight-core and 16-thread Intel Core i9011950H and Xeon W-11000 mobile processors that support Thunderbolt 4, WiFi 6/6E, and up to DDR4 3200 Mh RAM delivering much faster speed and better hardware-based security.
These processors will feature Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory, Total Memory Encryption, Active Management Technology, Deep Learning Boost and Hardwareshield for improved security, productivity and better AI performance.
Besides the new vPro that will be available early this summer, the Tiger Lake-H processors will be shipping today to all OEMs and we will probably see them in the gaming laptops very soon.
