Intel has officially thrown the covers off of its 11th Gen Tiger Lake processors for thin and light notebooks.

There are as many as 11 CPUs in the lineup all sporting various thread counts, turbo speeds and the like.

Before we dive into those numbers we want to take a look at some of the features the chips have in common starting with Intel’s Xe graphics.

According to Intel, the integrated graphics can drive an 8K HDR display or up to four 4K HDR displays. In terms of gaming this is a 2X upgrade from 10th Gen Intel mobile chips and you’ll reportedly be able to run Borderlands 3, Far Cry New Dawn and Hitman 2 at 1080p. Of course, Intel didn’t divulge at what graphics settings that 1080p mark was achieved at.

Another similarity is Intel Evo.

This is your way of knowing what sort of minimum features you can expect from a notebook with an Intel Evo Badge.

This includes:

  • Consistent responsiveness on battery
  • System wake from sleep in less than 1 second
  • Nine or more hours of real-world battery life on systems with FHD displays
  • Fast charging with up to a four-hour charge in under 30 minutes on systems with FHD displays
  • Thunderbolt 4
  • Intel Wi-Fi 6

More information about Intel Evo can be found here.

Now on to the meet and potatoes, the processing power of these new chipsets. There are nine chipsets in total and the specs of each follow on below.

While these chips are based on a 10nm process, this time around Intel is using a 10nm SuperFin design which is said to offer better speeds at a lower power consumption.

Intel says that we can expect 150 notebooks that utilise these chips from the likes of Asus, Acer, MSI, HP, Lenovo and more.

Unfortunately we’re not sure when to expect these notebooks but we will be sure to let you know when we receive word of arrival locally.
