Intel Launches 11th Generation CPUs for Ultraportable Laptops
Intel has launched its 11th Generation CPUs

Intel launches 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics. Also, Intel Evo platform brand introduced for designs based on 11th Gen Intel Core processors that use Intel Iris.

Intel has launched its next-generation mobile PC processors. The new,11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics (code-named “Tiger Lake”) are optimised for thin-and-light laptops and aim to boost productivity, collaboration, creation, gaming and entertainment workloads across Windows and ChromeOS-based laptops. 

Leveraging Intel’s new SuperFin process technology, 11th Gen Intel Core processors optimise power efficiency with better performance and responsiveness while running at significantly higher frequencies compared to previous generations.  

Intel Evo

Intel also introduced the Intel Evo platform brand for laptop designs verified to the second edition specification and KEIs of the Project Athena innovation program. Based on 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics, devices featuring the Intel Evo badge are "Verified" to be, "The best laptops for getting things done." More than 20 verified designs  from partners are expected this year.

These will be verified to the second edition specification and key experience indicators (KEIs) of Project Athena under an "Intensified testing methodology." Project Athena is essentially a list of guidelines that Intel ascribes to laptops that work well and aren't slow, heavy, unportable and annoying.

By measuring workflows under real-world conditions for consistent performance and battery life together, Intel’s unique testing-and measurement-methodology provides a preview into how a laptop will perform each day. Only the laptop designs that consistently meet or beat the KEIs and specification are verified to use the Intel Evo badge. KEI targets are minimums and include:

  • Consistent responsiveness on battery
  • System wake from sleep in less than 1 second
  • 9 or more hours of real-world battery life on systems with FHD displays
  • Fast charging with up to 4-hour charge in under 30 minutes on systems with FHD displays

Intel Evo platforms also feature best-in-class wired and wireless connectivity with integrated Thunderbolt 4 universal cable connectivity and Wi-Fi 6, as well as premium audio, webcam and display, all wrapped in sleek thin-and-light form factors for a premium experience.  

11th Gen Intel Core Processors with Intel Iris Xe Graphics

11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics are designed to be the world’s best processors for thin-and-light laptops across both Windows and ChromeOS. They represent Intel’s, "Most ambitious" system-on-chip (SoC) and deliver, "A generational leap" in performance. A broad range of integrated features fuel the best thin-and-light platforms available with optimised CPU, GPU, artificial intelligence (AI) acceleration, software optimisation and platform capabilities that maximise real-world performance on the applications and features people use the most.

The release describes the benefits as offering:

Rich collaboration: 11th Gen processors are the best for collaboration with more immersive and personal AI-enhanced experiences, including enhanced audio with CPU offload for background noise suppression via Intel Gaussian and Neural Accelerator 2.0 (Intel GNA), AI-accelerated background blur and video super-resolution, the latest video decode and integrated Intel Wi-Fi 6 – the best Wi-Fi technology for video conferencing – all on a thin-and-light PC.

Leadership productivity performance: More than 20 per cent faster office productivity versus competitive products and on workflows that reflect how people use their laptops every day. Integrated Thunderbolt 4 capabilities also enable up to four ports for connecting to a universe of peripherals and single-cable access to fast-charging, external monitors and extended storage.

Advanced content creation – Up to 2.7x faster real-world photo editing and up to 2x faster real-world video editing versus competitive products, in addition to support for 8K HDR displays and up to four simultaneous 4K HDR displays.

Immersive entertainment – 11th Gen Intel Core processors are the first in the industry with hardware-supported Dolby Vision, delivering more immersive content experiences and improving system-level power by approximately 20% versus the previous generation, translating to more than an hour of additional video streaming on battery.

New gaming experiences – With up to 2x game performance over the previous generation, play Borderlands 3, Far Cry New Dawn, Hitman 2 and other popular game titles for the first time at 1080p on Intel’s integrated graphics. Share your success with friends with ability to game plus stream more than 2x faster than competitive products. All of this on integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics and in a thin-and-light design.

Intel Project Athena

SuperFin

  • The new Willow Cove CPU and Intel Xe graphics architectures on Intel’s new SuperFin process technology significantly boost frequency – up to 4.8 Ghz – and improve power efficiency while enabling specialised compute engines, accelerators and software optimisations to be integrated on the SoC. 11th Gen Intel Core processors deliver a combination of the innovative compute engines needed for real-life workloads, including:
  • New Intel Iris Xe graphics, "Outperform 90 per cent of the discrete graphics paired in this segment" and offer up to 96 EUs and up to 16MB of L3 cache.
  • The first instruction set for neural network inferencing on integrated graphics with Intel DL Boost: DP4a and the first with native support for INT8 data type, delivering up to 5x better AI performance.
  • Hardware-hardened security with integrated Intel Control Flow Enforcement Technology (CET) and Intel Total Memory Encryption.
  • Support for the high-performance AV1 CODEC that enables power-efficient support for 4K, even in constrained bandwidth environments.
  • The first with image processing solution enabling vision sensing and adaptive dimming.
  • Thunderbolt 4 connectivity, including support for up to four ports with universal cable connectivity for charging, data and video.
  • The first mobile client SoC with CPU-attached PCIe Gen 4 interface and with up to four lanes.
