In early May, Intel launched its first Gen Tiger Lake H series laptop. Later at Computex 2021, the company introduced a few new U-based chips, one of which is the very first 5.0 GHz clock speed inside the company in its U-based family of lower voltage chips.
Intel has revealed the new high-end CPU Core i7-1195G7 for the U series and the Core i5-1155G7, Intel’s high-performance Core i5 processor.
The new chips will run in the 12W to 28W range, like in the previous 11th Gen Series Processors. The two new CPUs include four core/ eight-core threads with Integrated Graphics using Intel’s Iris Xe (the Core i7-1195G7 comes with 96 EUs, while the Core i5-1155G7 has 80 EUs.)
The Core i7-1195G7 has a base-clock speed of 2.9 GHz with the Intel technology Turbo Boost Max 3.0 but can attain a top speed of 5.0 GHz at the single-core. On the other hand, the Core i5-1155G7 offers a 2.5GHz base speed and a 4.5GHz enhanced rate. Getting out of the 5 GHz box is a somewhat new occurrence for laptop CPUs in general.
With its latest 5G modem solution for laptops, Intel announced its new CPUs including a new M.2 card, the Intel 5G Solution 5000, which device manufacturers may integrate into their designs. Although Intel’s 5G Smartphone Branch was famously sold to Apple, Intel has continued to develop in other areas of the communication standard of the future generation.
The new modem enables 5G Sub6GHz, integrated eSIM technology, and collaboration between Intel, the company Mediatek and Fibocom (which actually manufactures the modules). Intel claimed that Acer, Asus, and HP all would provide laptops with Intel’s Tiger Lake CPU and new 5G 5000 Solution cards later this year.
