Intel has announced two new 11th Gen processors with 5.0GHz speeds, as well as the company’s first 5G modem for laptops. The company has announced its first 5G module for laptops operating on the new Core-U series processors, following the release of its successful Tiger Lake H-series processors in May.

Intel released its 11th Generation Tiger Lake H-series laptop processors for gamers and creators last month.

To begin with, the latest Intel Core-U processors can run at up to 5GHz right out of the box. These processors will support WiFi 6 and 6E in the same way that the other Tiger Lake H-series processors do. These processors come in quad and octa-core versions. They offer improved system performance as well as better graphics performance when gaming with Intel’s Iris Xe graphics.

Intel 5G Modem

More vitally, the Intel 5G Solution 5000, the company’s latest 5G module, will be included in these laptops. The new modem has been in work for years and it will offer 5G — in the form of Sub-6, not the faster mmWave. It was created in conjunction with Mediatek (for the modem software) and Fibocom (for the new M.2 module). This year, they may be featured on Asus, Acer, and HP laptops, with another 30 models coming next year.

Intel revealed two new laptop processors as part of its U-series at Computex 2021 on Monday: the Intel Core i7-1195G7 and the Intel Core i5-1155G7. These processors are presently the most powerful Core i7 and Core i5 processors for any laptop. They also have high specifications and are designed for thin and light laptops.

New Processors

The Core i7-1195G7 — Intel’s top-end U-series CPU — is the first to reach 5.0 GHz clock speed, according to Intel. Both new processors have a power range of 12W to 28W. The new processors have four cores and eight threads, as well as Intel’s Iris Xe integrated graphics.

The Core i7-1195G7 has a basic clock speed of 2.9GHz, but owing to Intel’s Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology, it can achieve a maximum single-core speed of 5.0GHz. The Core i5-1155G7, on the other hand, offers a 2.5GHz base clock speed and a 4.5GHz boost speed.
