Intel’s recent announcement of new processors didn’t go as well as the company might have anticipated. However, if recent leaks are to be believed, Intel has several new Tiger Lake-H processors for laptop in the way.
In a recent Tweet, leaker 9550pro revealed an official Intel document that shows details of several new processors. While we will have to take any rumors like this with a grain of salt, the leaked specifications line up with previous rumors. For a while now, we have heard about three 8-core chips that will power different laptops as currently the 11th gen chips for laptop tops out at 4-core.
The first of the leaked processors, the Core i9-11980HK runs at a base clock of 2.6GHz at the default 45W power usage but can be increased to 3.3GHz if the chip is configured to run at 65W. As for the boost clock, the processor can reach 5GHz across two cores instead of all cores boost which tops out at 4.5GHz.
The second of the processors, the 11900H is a similar 8-core chip with lower clock speed. Moreover, the processor will be locked at 35W rather than the 35W. Similar to the first chip, the processor will have a boost clock of 4.9 GHz across two cores with all core boost capping out at 4.4GHz.
And lastly, the third 8-core processor is the Core i7-11800H. The processor ditches Turbo Boost Max 3.0 which means its max boost is 4.6GHz (on one or two cores) and 4.2GHz all-core, with a base clock speed of 2.4GHz.
While we will have to wait to find out the accuracy of the latest leaks, Intel previously stated that the chips will be coming out in the second quarter of 2021. As a result, we might not need to wait that long to learn more about the new processors.
