Intel has announced that they have added several new 11th Gen Intel Core CPUs for laptops during COMPUTEX 2021.
The new CPU models in question are the Core i7-1195G7 and Core i5-1155G7 and Intel’s tradition of emphasizing clock speeds especially single-threaded numbers still continues until this day and it is indeed great news for cases like gaming on the go as these chips are capable of reaching 5GHz boost clocks and coupled with Xe graphics and 2nd generation Optane memory, all sorts of applications and programs are reported to gain as much as 25% performance gain with the optimization update to ISV towards video related work ops becoming even faster in tasks like transcoding, encoding, preview scrubbing and more.
On the other hand of the wireless connectivity department, Intel’s WiFi 6e standard can be found directly in these new CPUs, enabling Gigabit speeds, lower latencies, and better reliability via the 6GHz wireless spectrum while the release of a brand new M.2 based 5G solution is what grabbed our attention this time. Called the Intel 5G Solution 5000 and jointly developed with MediaTek, it literally brings 5G around with you anywhere you go in the form of an M.2 form factor 5G modem card. From what we know, Acer, ASUS, and HP will be some of the first brands to introduce products equipped with this 5G module.
I hope that the performance advantage brought by the new chips doesn’t trample over the ones released last month, or else there’s gotta be a handful of mad users around the world complaining about Intel pulling such a move.
