Intel announced its new 11th generation Intel Core Processor, which was code named Tiger Lake, on Thursday.
Computing performance is 10% higher compared to the 10th generation (Ice Lake) and graphic performance has doubled, the chip giant said.
HP, Dell, Lenovo and other major PC makers will launch some 150 notebooks using the latest CPU, Intel said.
Tiger Lake comes in 9 models for notebooks all made in the 10-nanometer process. Each models have different core numbers, clock, cache memory and GPU.
Core i5 and above use the new embedded graphic core called Iris Xe. Intel said its benchmark showed the CPUs performing better than AMD Ryzen 7 4000 series and graphic performance was 1.8 times better than its rival’s.
Its notebook platform Athena Project has been renamed Evo Platform. To get Evo certified, system must be rebooted within a second in power saving mode and battery must support over 9 hours in Full HD. The notebooks must also support Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6.
Acer Swift 5, Asus Zenbook Flip S, Lenovo Yoga 9i and Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 5G has received the Evo marking. Twenty more notebooks with the marking will launch this year, Intel said.
1200 developers worked for 18 months to develop Tiger Lake, the chip giant said.
