Intel today announced the 11th Gen Intel Core H-series processors for laptops with double-digit single core and multi-core performance improvements. The new processors are based on 10 nanometer SuperFin process technology, featuring up to 8 cores and 16 threads, with single and dual-core turbo performance up to 5.0GHz. Also, the CPU can now directly access high-speed GDDR6 memory attached to the graphics card. This direct access will enable higher framerates with lower latency and load large textures faster in games. Intel highlighted that these H-series mobile processors offer 2.5 times the total PCIe bandwidth to the CPU compared with the 10th Gen H-series processors.
New platform features also include:
- 20 PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes with Intel® Rapid Storage Technology bootable in Raid 0 — and up to 44 total PCIe lanes that include 24 PCIe Gen 3.0 lanes from a dedicated platform controller hub.
- Memory support up to DDR4-3200.
- Thunderbolt™ 4 with transfer speeds up to 40Gbps.
- Discrete Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+).
- Dual Embedded Display Port integrated for power optimized companion display.
