These are the specifications for Tiger Lake-H, Intel’s new line of notebook CPUs

Following a huge series of rumors, Intel will finally announce this May 11 its new line of processors for laptops “Tiger Lake-H”, and we bring you exclusively the specifications and features of this new line that will allow you to take the latest from the blues wherever you go.

These are the specifications for Tiger Lake-H, Intel’s new line of notebook CPUs

The new Tiger Lake-H line will be based on the Willow Cove architecture and will feature a 19% IPC increase over the Comet Lake-H. It will also be manufactured in 10nm and is the first 10nm processor to reach frequencies above 5.0GHz, showing the progress Intel has made with this new manufacturing node.

Tiger Lake-H will also feature 20 PCIe Gen4 lanes to fully utilize the GPU and a PCI-E 4.0 x4 SSD, as well as another 20 PCI-E 3.0 lanes for other peripherals. It will also feature integrated graphics based on the Xe architecture, Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi 6E, and a host of new technologies that enable big advantages over Comet Lake-H.

Leading the lineup, as expected, is the Core i9-11980HK, which will be fully unlocked for overclocking via XTU and the various manufacturer tools. The various Tiger Lake-H-based laptops are accompanied by the latest generation of discrete graphics, and in the high-end models, we even find 1080p panels at up to 360Hz or 4K panels at up to 120Hz, giving us the latest desktop technologies in notebook PCs.

As for the different models we will find on the market, Intel will launch 5 models for consumers. The Core i9-11980HK will have 8 cores and 16 threads, a TDP of 65W, a base frequency of 2.6GHz, a maximum Turbo of 4.5GHz in its 8 threads, and a maximum Turbo of 5.0GHz in a single thread, making it a high performer for a notebook model. Also, as mentioned earlier, it will have an unlocked multiplier that will allow you to overclock it even more.

The other Core i9 we will find is the i9-11900H, which also has 8 cores and 16 threads, although it reduces its TDP to 35W and lowers its frequencies to 2.5GHz on the base frequency side, 4.4GHz on the multi-core boost side, and 4.9GHz on the single-core boost side.

Other models we find are the Core i7-11800H with 8 cores and 16 threads, and the i5-11400H and i5-11260H with 6 cores and 12 threads, offering proposals for all segments.

Compared to Zen 3, the i5-11400H, which is one of the cheapest models that Intel’s new Tiger Lake H line will have, will fight in games against the Ryzen 9 5900HS, which is the top model of AMD’s line. So we don’t have to spend a lot of money on a model with a Core i9 if we want to get good performance in games.

If you were wondering what the prices of the laptops will be that these products will have, we’ll tell you that you’ll be able to find economic models from U$S 699 to U$S 999 on the mid-range side, as well as high-end models for the most demanding that will start from U$S 999, and in some cases, they’ll even exceed the U$S 1999 limit.

As we expected, the Tiger Lake processors will be announced in exactly one week, on May 11, and on the same day we’ll see the first models from various manufacturers, so stay tuned if you’ve been looking for a new laptop to work and/or play with.
