Intel shows a Tiger Lake-H CPU in action with a really high frequency

Intel recently showed in action a notebook equipped with an eight-core Tiger Lake-H processor capable of reaching the operating frequency of 5.0GHz and revealing some of the main strengths of its flagship CPU for mobile systems that will arrive on the market during the second quarter of this year. The chip, mounted on a pre-production laptop, was an eleventh-generation Core i9 model not yet officially announced, but which was able to reach a whopping 5.0GHz "across multiple cores," as reported by colleagues at VideoCardz.

Although it has not been specified, most likely it was the Core i9-11980HK, which Lenovo has already listed without revealing its specifications. This time, Intel did not disclose the processor base clock and how many cores can run at 5.0GHz, but it goes without saying that we are talking about more than one core, which implies that 5.0GHz will not be the maximum achievable by a single. cores in Boost mode.

Intel Tiger Lake-H processors are composed of a maximum of eight cores made with the Willow Cove microarchitecture, equipped with a maximum of 24MB of L3 cache and integrate a new DDR4 memory controller. The new CPUs will also offer numerous improvements over their predecessors, including 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes to connect to the latest high-end GPUs and SSDs, as well as integrated Thunderbolt 4 support.

To demonstrate the capabilities of the Core i9 CPU a 8 cores and 16 threads “Tiger Lake-H”, Intel used the real-time strategy game Total War, which uses the processor heavily. Unfortunately it is not known which GPU was used for the demonstration, but, since the laptop was equipped with a 15.6 ”display, common sense makes us think of the presence of a dedicated graphics solution.

Intel Core i5-10500 is a CPU with 6 cores and 12 threads capable of reaching 4.5GHz of boost frequency. With an excellent quality / price ratio it is perfect for gamers and is available on Amazon.
