Intel 11th-gen Tiger Lake processor with new integrated Xe graphics launched
Just like 10th Gen Ice Lake processors, the 11th Gen Tiger Lake processors are also based on the same 10nm architecture. However, Intel has upgraded the architecture to Willow Core with a 10nm SuperFin design. Intel claims that this will decrease the power consumption without compromising on performance.
Under the new 11th Gen lineup, Intel has launched nine new SKUs under U-series (UP3) and Y-series (UP4) chips. All the processors are paired with Intel’s new Xe integrated graphics. These processors have a scalable performance across the 7 to 28 watts thermal envelope and can attain maximum clock speed of up to 4.8GHz.

Another major improvement of the new processors are the integrated Xe graphics and according to the company, the new Xe graphics delivers up to 2X graphics performance and 5x better AI performance with new DP4a instructions on the GPU than the previous generation processors.
In addition to this, Intel has also introduced the new Evo-series processors as an expansion of their Project Athena. Tihe Evo processors will now feature even higher system requirements such as minimum nine hours of battery life on a FHD display, less than 1-sec system wake up time, fast charging that delivers up to four hours of usages in 30 minutes charge, latest wireless connectivity, premium audio, webcam, display and most importantly thin and light form factor.
