At the Computex 2021, Intel announced two new 11th Gen Intel Core mobile U-series processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics– Core i7-1195G7 and Core i5-1155G7.
Alongside the two new processors, Intel also announced the 5G M.2 module for laptops in partnership with MediaTek.
The Core i7-1195G7, its top-end chip in the U-series, has a base clock speed of 2.9GHz but is able to achieve 5.0 GHz clock speed using Intel’s Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology. On the other hand, the Core i5-1155G7 has a base clock speed of 2.5GHz and can crank up to 4.5GHz. Both new processors operate in the 12W to 28W range.
Both the new chipsets are four-core/eight-thread configurations and operate in the 12W to 28W range. Both the chips will power “thin-and-light” laptops.
Intel also announced the 5G M.2 module for laptops in partnership with MediaTek which will allow the OEMs to incorporate a new M.2 card in their designs which will be called the Intel 5G Solution 5000.
This will offer sub-6GHz 5G support and integrated eSIM technology. The company also said that Acer, Asus, and HP will be among the few companies to launch laptops with Intel’s Tiger Lake chips and new 5G Solution 5000 cards later this year.
