Intel Rumored To Launch Three 8-Core 11th Generation Tiger Lake-H CPUs

Intel announced their 11th Generation Tiger Lake-H processors for high-end gaming laptops at CES 2021. The three models announced are now shipping in slim gaming machines and target the AMD Ryzen 5000H series processors. The Intel models compete favorably in single-core performance but only feature four cores and eight threads while the Ryzen 5000H series processors include up to 8 cores and 16 threads giving them the clear advantage in multi-core performance.

Intel is planning to close this performance gap with the launch of three new 45 W 8 core 11th Generation H-series processors in Q2 2021 with a possible announcement at Computex. The three models include the unlocked Core i9-11980HK, Core i9-11900H, and the Core i7-11800H along with the Core i5-11400H with six cores. These new processors will compete directly with the Ryzen 9 5980HX, Ryzen 9 5900H, and Ryzen 7 5800H with the Core i9-11980HK likely to feature a boost clock of 5 GHz on multiple cores.

5 GHz boost speed will be available for a second, later it will be throttled...

Is it so hard to name the mobile chips "M" instead of "H"? why confuse us??

Nice, creating a new SKU just for 100Mhz differences.

So that we don't know what it is exactly and what it offers without doing a research about it. :) Also, AMD uses the "H" so maybe Intel decided to copy it?
I wonder how much better these are from 10980HK. The 5900HX and 5800H are pretty solid performers so it may be hard for Intel to get to the top.

Further segmentation inside the range of mobile CPUs. Today, U is ~15W, H is ~45W.
If I remember correctly, M was 30-35W class which has fallen out of favor today.
H somehow came to be from HP (High Power/Performance) designation of a mobile CPU subclass.
Although not exactly that today, the roots of U are in ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) which came to be in 2003 or so among Pentium M mobile CPUs. Intel also developed the platform around ULV concept in late 2000s.

This has been pretty ingrained designation and with AMD having followed suit, it is even more so today.

Pretty sure Intel was using H designation before AMD.

Pretty sure all the mobile processors 10xxx released in 2019 didn't have "H" designation. New release and its back just when AMD started releasing mobile processors. I don't mind that and don't actually care, just spotted this. Intel is back with "H" maybe to make the CPUs more comparable in terms of power and performance. Just a thought.

While you are right about none of the 10-series getting H designation in 2019, it has to do with staggered product launch, only U-series was released first and everything else followed after a little while.

Now that I looked too much into Intel's mobile CPU list, H seems to have started around Haswell, mostly in HQ form in the beginning.

Right. I've missed that though. Focused on the Ice Lake only for some unknown reason and 2019 releases. I guess I'm still not used to the its 2021 already.

And these are 10th gen mobile in your opinion?

"H" designation has been used well before 2019.

Yeah we all know that thanks. My premise was about something slightly different.

Going back to the topic.

I would be more impressed if Tigerlake 8-core has 15W variants.

that is the point, when the customer confuse they can "advice" you to buy something that they say much better in fact that intel pushs the ads better than AMD

the consumer don't even read the model number, all they care is Core Branding i3/i5/i7, these are Laptop, it's less about Intel make their CPU more appealing, and more about how the OEM make their Laptop Appealing

I never see a mainstream audiance checking the CPU model, all their check is the CPU Branding, the only audiance reading Model number of a CPU on a Laptop during purchase is Enthusiasts

As they have from the early days.
Remember Pentium 4s and prior?

Typical case of 'what comes up, must come down'. Not sure where the Tigers stand in that sense but at least for Rockets and Comets, that sorta worked. Maybe Intel is trying to postpone their Tiger Lake performance parts until the last Bengal Tiger is gone or something?

Oh wait, no, this is obviously about their turbo clocks :roll:
