CES 2021: Intel Tiger Lake-H for gaming laptops
In early September 2020, Intel announced the first 11th generation notebook processors, made with 10-nanometer process technology (Tiger Lake-U). The Santa Clara chipmaker has now unveiled the Tiger Lake-H series for gaming laptops that will hit the market in the first half of the year.

Intel Tiger Lake-H for mobile gaming

Historically Intel has always divided mobile processors into two categories: U series with maximum TDP of 15 Watts and H series with maximum TDP of 45 Watts. The new Tiger Lake architecture has allowed to increase the TDP of the U series up to 35 Watts, but instead of using the suffix U35, Intel has chosen the suffix H35 (creating a bit of confusion, ed).

The Tiger Lake-H35 series consists of three processors, all with four Willow Cove cores and Iris Xe Graphics. The top of the range is Core i7-11375H Special Edition with a maximum frequency of 5 GHz (single core). The Core i7-11370H and Core i5-11300H instead reach 4.8 and 4.4 GHz, respectively.

The three CPUs support DDR4-3200 memory up to 64 GB or LPDDR4x up to 32GB, four PCIe 4.0 lanes, Thunderbolt 4.0, Wi-Fi 6 / 6E and discrete video cards. The Tiger Lake-H35 series will find its place in ultra-thin (16mm) notebooks with 14 and 15-inch screens, suitable for gaming at 4K resolution.

The Tiger Lake-H series with a maximum TDP of 45 Watts is expected to be launched in the coming months. The processors will have eight Willow Cove cores running up to 5 GHz. Intel also announced six 10-nanometer Jasper Lake processors (Pentium Silver and Celeron) for budget notebooks and Chromebooks suitable for education.
