- Up to 5 gigahertz (GHz) in high-volume thin-and-light designs — an industry first.
- Up to 25% overall application performance advantage over the competition.
- Designs with Intel® Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) for improved connectivity.
- Independent software vendors optimisations for up to eight times faster transcoding and up to twice the video editing speed over the competition.
- Impressive 1080p gameplay on new and popular titles, such as Valheim, with up to a 2.7 higher frame rate than that of the competition.
More than 60 designs based on the Intel Core i7-1195G7 and Intel Core i5-1155G7 are expected by this holiday season, with laptops from Acer, ASUS, Lenovo and MSI available this summer. Nearly 250 designs powered by 11th Gen Intel Core U-series processors are expected by this holiday season.
“We’ve taken the world’s best processor for thin-and-light Windows laptops and made the experience even better with the addition of our two new 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics. In addition, we know real-world performance and connectivity are vital to our partners and the people who rely on PCs every day, so we’re continuing that momentum with more platform capabilities and choice in the market with the launch of our first 5G product for PCs: the Intel 5G Solution 5000.”Chris Walker, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of Mobility Client Platforms
Widespread pandemic-driven requirements for working and studying at home have proven that mobility, performance and connectivity are essential to modern PC experiences. As the world embarks on the next stages of hybrid work-learn-play models, advancements in mobile computing support the evolution of how and where people use their devices.
First 5G product – Intel 5G Solution 5000
Intel introduces its first 5G M.2 solution with worldwide carrier certification. The Intel 5G Solution 5000 delivers nearly five-times speed increases over Intel® Gigabit Long-Term Evolution (LTE) from anywhere. Intel partnered with MediaTek on product definition, development, certification and support of 5G modem solutions for the next generation of PC experiences and Fibocom to supply 5G M.2 solutions (FM350-GL).
Acer, ASUS and HP are among the first OEMs expected this year to enable modern connected laptops with the Intel 5G Solution 5000 based on 11th Gen Intel® Core™ U- and H-series processors.
5G connectivity paired with Intel Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) enable seamless experiences across all network types. As Intel sets a new standard for mobile computing, Wi-Fi and 5G will be the main pillars supporting the pervasive connectivity needs of the future.
