Intel officially launched the new 11th generation Intel Core processor code-named “Tiger Lake”, based on the 10nm process and equipped with Intel Iris Xe graphics. At the same time, Intel also introduced the Intel Evo platform brand, focusing on creating notebooks with a better experience.
On September 2nd, Beijing time, the new generation of Intel Core that has received much attention was officially unveiled, which is code-named “Tiger Lake”, based on the 10nm process, and equipped with Intel Iris Xe graphics card. Intel also introduced the Intel Evo platform brand, focusing on creating notebooks with a better experience. Notebooks based on the Evo platform passed the second edition of the Athena Innovation Plan and key experience indicator certification.
Gregory Bryant, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Client Computing Division of Intel, said: “The 11th generation Intel Core processor equipped with Intel Iris Xe graphics has achieved a major leap in performance in real application scenarios. It is our powerful laptop. Processor. From daily office and content creation to entertainment and games, choose a laptop equipped with the 11th generation Intel Core, especially a laptop jointly built with the new Intel Evo platform certification to bring you an extraordinary experience.”
· The 11th generation Intel Core processor with Intel Iris Xe graphics
The 11th-generation Intel Core processor announced this time can be said to be a generation of products that Intel has made significant breakthroughs in process technology, underlying architecture, advanced interfaces, and AI applications in recent years. Compared with the previous generation, the 11th-generation Core mobile processor not only brings significant performance improvements, but also provides a series of leading features.
First, in terms of process technology, Tiger Lake’s 11th-generation Intel Core processor is an enhanced 10nm process technology and uses Intel’s new SuperFin process technology to optimize power efficiency while providing leading performance and response speed, compared to previous generation products The operating frequency is significantly increased. The new Willow Cove architecture CPU core, although the highest has only 4 cores and 8 threads, the highest frequency can reach 4.8GHz, which is significantly higher than the 3.9GHz frequency of the Sunny Cove core in the 10th generation of Ice Lake.
The first official Iris Xe graphics card is also not to be underestimated. It has up to 96 execution units (EU) and up to 16MB L3 cache. The official said that the performance exceeds 90% of the discrete graphics cards in this market segment. At the same time, with the help of Intel DL Boost, it provides the first instruction set for neural network inference on the integrated graphics card: DP4a, and provides native support for the INT8 data type for the first time, which can improve AI performance by up to 5 times .
Therefore, PCs equipped with 11th-generation Intel Core processors have more immersive and personalized AI enhancements, including enhanced audio features with Intel Gaussian and Neural Accelerator 2.0 (Intel GNA), which can achieve background noise suppression and reduce CPU Workload, AI-enhanced background blur, and video resolution enhancement functions.
It is worth mentioning that the 11th-generation Intel Core processor was restored to support the PCIe 4.0 specification, becoming the first mobile client SoC architecture that supports PCIe 4.0×4 channels. In addition, it also integrates USB4 and Thunderbolt 4, supports up to 4 ports, each port has a bidirectional bandwidth of up to 40Gbps, supports fast charging through a single cable, connects to an external display and expands storage.
Intel’s 11th-generation Smart Core processor low-voltage version first released a total of 11 models. In particular, it no longer has a fixed static TDP, but provides a heat dissipation range of 7-28 watts and expandable performance. It provides two package designs and Nine processor configurations can be dynamically adjusted in real time according to operating scenarios, and OEM manufacturers can also be more flexible when designing notebook products. The flagship model of these 11 models is Core i7-1185G7, with a base frequency of 3.0GHz, a maximum all-core turbo frequency of 4.3GHz, a single core turbo frequency of up to 4.8GHz, a core display frequency of 1.35GHz, and support for DDR-3200 or LPDDR4x-4266 memory.
·New Intel Evo platform to create a better experience notebook
Two years ago, Intel began to promote the Athena Project, aiming to establish a norm for the future-oriented notebook experience. This time, Intel continues to promote the innovation of the PC ecosystem platform, and the newly launched Intel Evo platform is born to create a better experience notebook. Intel and its partners have jointly launched the 11th-generation Intel Core processor equipped with Iris Xe graphics, and have passed the second edition of the Athena project specifications and key experience indicators (KEI) rigorously tested and certified notebooks, once again pushing the notebook experience to New height.
By measuring work tasks in a real environment and assessing the consistent performance and battery life of devices, Intel’s unique test and measurement methods can help users estimate the daily operating conditions of laptops. Only laptops that consistently meet or exceed KEI’s goals and specifications can be certified to use the Intel Evo logo.
The KEI goals of the new EVO platform include:
• Consistent response speed when battery powered;
• Wake up the system from sleep mode within 1 second;
• In actual scenes, a system equipped with a FHD full HD display can achieve 9 hours or longer battery life;
• Fast charging, a system equipped with a FHD full HD display can get up to 4 hours of battery life after 30 minutes of charging.
The stylish thin and light notebooks based on the Intel Evo platform also have advanced wired and wireless connectivity features, including integrated Thunderbolt 4 universal cable connectivity and Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), as well as high-end audio, cameras and displays to help The whole machine has a comprehensive and good use experience.
In terms of products, manufacturers including Asus, Dell, Acer, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, etc. are expected to launch more than 150 notebooks equipped with 11th-generation Intel Core processors. This year, there are expected to be more than 20 notebooks based on the Intel Evo platform brand, all of which use the 11th generation Intel Core processor equipped with Intel Iris Xe graphics, and have passed strict certification (and will also have a dedicated Evo logo to prove their identity). Great choice for efficient task processing.
Intel’s new LOGO
By the way, at the same time that the new Tiger Lake 11th generation smart core processor and EVO platform are released, Intel also announced a new logo, the overall design style is flatter and younger, do you think it looks good?
