Big Launch: 2 new 11th-generation CPUs are out, plus a 5G M.2 laptop module – intel

Yesterday at Computex 2021, Intel announced two new additions to the lineup of 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors.

The new processors, together with the co-engineering work at Intel with independent software vendors (ISVs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), continue Intel’s leadership in mobile computing — delivering the world’s best processors for thin-and-light Windows-based laptops.

Intel also introduced its first 5G product for the subsequent generation of PC experiences, Intel® 5G Solution 5000, following the previously announced collaboration with MediaTek and Fibocom.

In a statement by Chris Walker, the corporate vice chairman at Intel, the company has taken the world’s best processor for thin-and-light Windows laptops and improved on the experience by adding a better pair of two new 11th Gen Intel Core processors that come with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics.

On top of this, they added on to the pc market with the launch of their first 5G product for PCs: the Intel 5G Solution 5000.

Widespread pandemic-driven requirements for working and studying reception have proven that mobility, performance, and connectivity are essential to modern PC experiences.

Because the world embarks on subsequent stages of hybrid work-learn-play models, advancements in mobile computing support the evolution of how and where people use their devices.

Intel New 11th Generation CPUs

The new 11th generation Intel Core processor family continues to deliver high-quality performance, collaboration, creativity, gaming, and entertainment on thin-and-light laptops.

Now 11th Gen Intel Core processor-based laptops  deliver:

  • Up to five gigahertz (GHz) in high-volume thin-and-light designs — an industry first.
  • Up to 25% overall application performance advantage over the competition.
  • Designed with Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gigabit) for better connectivity.
  • ISV optimizations with up to 8 times faster transcoding, coupled by up to 2x the video editing speed over the competition.
  • Impressive 1080p gameplay on new and popular titles, like Valheim, with up to a 2.7 higher frame rate than that of the competition.

More than 60 designs supported the Intel Core i7-1195G7 and Intel Core i5-1155G7 are expected by this season, with laptops from Acer, ASUS, Lenovo, and MSI available this summer.

Nearly 250 designs powered by 11th Gen Intel Core U-series processors are expected by this season.

As part of its ongoing innovation and leadership, Intel continues with its 11th generation Intel Core family and Intel® EvoTM platform-verified designs that enable amazing PC experiences.

Wi-Fi 6E is that the most vital update to consumer Wi-Fi in 20 years. Intel delivered the primary Wi-Fi 6E solutions for the PC market in early 2021.

Select new 11th Gen Intel Core designs will still accelerate this industry leadership with best-in-class Intel Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+) products that enable gigabit+ speeds, lower latencies, and enhanced reliability via simultaneous access to multiple Wi-Fi bands (where available).

11th Gen Intel Core processor-based platforms combined with the recently launched second-generation Intel® Optane™ memory H20 with solid-state storage (SSD) accelerate everyday tasks to the management of huge media, gaming files, and applications with a replacement level of responsiveness and enormous storage capacity.

Intel Optane memory is the fastest, allowing applications such as Adobe Photoshop to launch up to 49% faster2.

Intel is constant to advance PC experiences beyond pure performance also.

With a mixture of key platform technologies and system optimizations, Intel Evo platform-verified laptop designs are co-engineered to make sure exceptional responsiveness, long battery life, instant wake, and impressive connectivity.

To date, a cool 85 Intel Evo designs have launched from top OEMs including Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI, and Samsung, and Intel expects to verify quite 100 designs from over 15 OEMs by the top of this year.

Intel has partnered with quite 150 ecosystem partners to make a deeper level of premium mobile computing with plans to take a position of quite $50 million in Intel Evo ecosystem innovation this year.

About Intel 5G Solution 5000:

Intel introduces its first 5G M.2 solution with worldwide carrier certification. Compared to Intel Gigabit Long-Term Evolution (LTE), the Intel 5G Solution 5000 delivers more than five times the speed.

Intel partnered with MediaTek on product definition, development, certification, and support of 5G modem solutions for the subsequent generation of PC experiences and Fibocom to provide 5G M.2 solutions (FM350-GL).

Acer, ASUS and HP are among the primary OEMs expected this year to enable modern connected laptops with the Intel 5G Solution 5000 supported 11th Gen Intel® Core™ U- and H-series processors.

This same momentum is expected to continue in 2022 with more than 30 new designs expected.

The combination of swift, 5G connectivity paired with Intel Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) enables seamless experiences across all network types.

As Intel sets a replacement standard for mobile computing, Wi-Fi and 5G are going to be the most pillars supporting the pervasive connectivity needs of the longer term.

The Intel 5G Solution 5000 builds on two recently announced collaborations with ecosystem partners, China Mobile, HP and MediaTek, and DoCoMo, and HP, to usher in a replacement generation of fully connected PCs.
