Intel made Intel’s new 11th generation chip splash in May with its first Tiger Lake H-series processor, but at Computex 2021, it is also announcing two new U-series chips – including one that features the company’s first 5.0GHz clock speed for low-voltage chips.
Intel’s new 11th generation chip of Intel U-Series chips has been announced, including the Core i7-1195G7 and the Core i5-1155G7, both of which are the most powerful Core i5 chips available.
Intel’s new 11th generation chip is a new U-series chip that operates in the 12W to 28W range, as do the original 11th generation. They both have four cores and eight threads, as well as Intel’s integrated Iris XE graphics (the Core i7-1195G7 has 96 European units, while the Core i5-1155G7 has 80 EUs).
Based on Intel’s Turbo Boost Max technology, the Core i7-1195G7’s base clock speed is 2.9GHz, but it can run at speeds up to 5.0GHz. The Core i5-1155G7 has a 2.5GHz base clock speed and a 4.5GHz top speed, while the i5-1155G7 can run at 4.5GHz.
5GHz processors are a relatively new concept for desktop CPUs, especially laptop processors; Intel’s first desktop processor to reach that mark in 2019 was a 5GHz processor.
Intel’s new 11th generation chip offer sub-6GHz 5G support and integrated eSIM technology and is a collaboration between Intel, Mediatek (which handles the modem firmware), and Fibocom (which makes the module).
It has been announced that Acer, Asus, and HP will release laptops powered by Tiger Lake processors and Intel’s 5G Solution 5000 card later on this year.
