Intel Unveils New 11th Gen Processors for Laptops With 5.0GHz Speeds

Intel Announces New 10nm Tiger Lake CPUs for Laptops

Intel has taken the veil off of two new chips, the Core i7-1195G7, the most powerful U series chip in the lineup, and the Core i5-1155G7, which is the company’s top tier Core i5 chip.

Both of these new chips operate at lower voltages than the rest, ranging between 12W to 28W. These chips feature a four-core/eight-thread configuration and Intel’s Iris Xe integrated graphics.

The base clock speed on the Core i7-1195G7 is 2.9GHz, but it can reach a 5.0GHz maximum single-core speed thanks to Intel’s Turbo Boost Max 3.0. The Core i5 model on the other hand is limited to a 2.5GHz base clock speed and a boost clock speed of 4.5GHz.

Other than that, Intel has also released its latest 5G modem for laptops, which is a new M.2 card that companies will easily be able to incorporate into their designs. This modem is called the Intel 5G Solution 5000 and it comes as a collaboration between Intel, Mediatek, and Fibocom.

This will enable sub-6GHz 5G support and integrated eSIM technology.
