Intel announces 11th Gen mobile H-series processors, Alder Lake and more

Intel 11th Gen H-Series

Intel Evo certified Chromebooks with Tiger Lake processors are coming soon

They feature new Gen 4 PCIE architecture for connecting to latest discrete graphics and deliver amazingly low latency and immersive game play on the go.

Intel also demonstrated next-generation desktop technology for gamers and enthusiasts coming to market in 11th Gen Intel® Core™ S-series desktop processors ("Rocket Lake-S").

More generally, this new 11th Gen architecture promises to deliver a 19% IPC improvement and 50% better integrated graphics performance. According to Intel, the Alder Lake processors are its most power-scalable system-on-chip.

"Today marks a significant milestone for Intel as we continue to accelerate the delivery of our 10nm products and maintain an intense focus on delivering a predictable cadence of leadership products for our customers", said Navin Shenoy, executive vice president and general manager of the Data Platforms Group at Intel, in a statement.

Firstly, the new 11th Gen H-Series processors add PCIe 4.0 support for the faster RTX 3000 Series graphics we're bound to see on upcoming gaming laptops. It performs 23% faster when using Microsoft Office and 2.3x faster video or photo editing.

Then, for education and entry-level devices there are also new N-series 10-nanometer Intel Pentium Silver and Intel Celeron processors, too offering up to 35 percent better performance.

Intel also announced an 8-core processor that will start shipping later this quarter.

The 11th Gen Intel Core vPro and Intel Evo vPro chips also come with Intel's 10nm SuperFin technology, Iris Xe graphics and Wi-Fi 6, Intel said. Intel says they'll appear in almost 500 new PCs by the end of 2021. Intel says it uses a hybrid architecture similar to ARM's BIG.little by utilizing high-performance cores along with high-efficiency ones.

More details about the new Intel chips are expected to be released very soon. However, Intel wants this platform to be the foundation of future desktop and notebook processors instead of focusing on mobile platforms.

What about 10nm? Of course, we're all much more interested in hearing about when Intel will finally introduce its first 10nm desktop processors.
