After experiencing the “true fragrance” baptism of Nvidia’s RTX30 series graphics cards, Intel launches its 11Gen Processor which held the conference early this morning, did not dare to neglect and came up with the 11th generation Core world’s best processor code-named “Tiger Lake”, which officially moved towards the next generation.
Intel announced the 11th generation SuperFin Tiger Lake Processor
To briefly summarize its new changes, it can be roughly classified into three points: the new Willow Cove architecture, the new 10nm SuperFin process, and the new Xe graphics processing architecture. Compared with the minor repairs and supplements in previous years, there is still a lot of sincerity.

In terms of products, the intel 11th-gen processor Core provides a total of 9 models based on two TDPs. Among them, the 12-28W position is similar to the original U series and is suitable for business laptops, light, and thin laptops, etc.
The 7-15W position is comparable to the Y series and is mainly used in fan less ultra-thin notebooks with lower power consumption.
Let’s take the most powerful Core i7-1185G7
Tiger Lake uses a 4-core 8-thread design with a core frequency of 3.0GHz and a maximum of 4.8GHz. It also integrates a new generation of Xe architecture graphics cards with 96 computing units., Compared to the previous generation Ice Lake has a good improvement.
Also, the 11th generation Core integrates the DP4a instruction set for neural networks, which can increase AI performance by as much as 5 times, and supports high-performance AV1 encoding and decoding, visual sensing and adaptive dimming functions, and natively supports PCIe 4.0, USB4, and Thunderbolt 4 ports, can be connected to one HDR 8K display, or four HDR 4K displays at the same time.
OEM manufacturers scheduling to launch notebooks equipped with intel 11Gen Core processors.
At present, many OEM manufacturers, including Lenovo, Asus, Dell, HP, Razer, etc., have already scheduled to launch notebooks equipped with intel 11gen Core processors.
With the arrival of the 11th generation Core processor, various notebook manufacturers have also begun to release new products equipped with this chip.
Some of the new products have also appeared first, such as Samsung’s newly released Galaxy Book Flex 5G, Acer’s new Swift 3/5 series, ASUS ZenBook’s, and Lenovo’s three Yoga flagships.
If you are not in a hurry to change to a new computer, you might as well wait and see for a while and do a “wait for the party.”
Intel 11Gen SuperFin Technology, Intel continues to polish 10nm?
The new Intel 11th-generation Core processor is still based on the 10nm process, but it still brings a very considerable performance improvement. It relies on Intel’s latest SuperFin technology.
More importantly, Intel claims that the technology “achieves the most powerful single-node performance enhancement in its history,” and the performance improvement it brings is even comparable to full-node conversion.
At first glance, I think Intel has almost said that “my 10nm is more advanced than its rival 7nm”.
Intel FinFET Transistor Structure
However, the performance improvement does exist objectively. The reason why it can bring such a huge change is mainly that, Intel has made a round of adjustments to the original FinFET transistor structure.
According to Intel’s introduction, the SuperFin process enhances the external elongation of the source-drain two-stage crystal structure to reduce resistance and improves the gate process and the gate spacing, so that the charge carriers can move faster, which is the chip Provides a higher drive current.
At the same time, Intel also used a new Hi-K dielectric material, which increased the capacitance in the same footprint by 5 times.
The SuperFin process allowed Intel’s new 10nm chip to achieve a performance improvement of about 20% at one time. In the previous 14nm era, Intel went through four iterations of “++++” to complete the performance improvement at the same level. Intel 11Gen Processor
Largest Intranode Performance Delta in Our history
In other words, even if Intel is still “polishing” 10nm, the performance of a chip based on the SuperFin process is no longer the same, and it is not even weaker than the 7nm processor.
But since it is aimed at friends, it is indispensable to compare it with competing products. In the press conference, Intel chose its flagship 11-generation Core i7-1185G7 and compared it with the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U, which is also the flagship positioning.
Video Editing Workflow 10nm v/s 7nm
In the end, in content creation tasks such as photo editing, i7-1185G7 can bring about 2 times the speed increase, and in Office 365 office tasks and games, there is also a nearly 2 times difference between the two, which is Intel’s all-around The performance is beyond.
Leadership Real World Performance
However, in addition to performance, can the SuperFin process allow Intel to completely dilute the impact of the process and tie up with more advanced processes? It is still unknown, and we can only wait for the subsequent 11-generation Core notebooks to go on the market before looking at the actual performance.
Brand-new Xe graphics architecture, the integrated display can also run 3A masterpiece
After talking about the SuperFin process, let’s talk about the new graphics architecture adopted by the 11th generation Core: Xe.
At the “Architecture Day” held in early August, Intel has introduced the detailed architecture design of Xe. This is a new and efficient architecture designed by Intel for PC and mobile computing platforms. It is not only suitable for notebooks, but also for desktop PCs and even data centers and other platforms to launch discrete graphics products in the future.
This means that when we talk about graphics card manufacturers in the future, in addition to AMD and Nvidia, Intel may also have to be included.
Xe Architecture improved in graphics performance
This 11th-generation Core platform is also the first time that the Xe architecture is applied to the core display part. The performance improvement is obvious, and it even supports emerging image technologies such as VRS variable rate coloring.
Take the Iris Xe graphics card integrated with the new Core i7-1185G7 chip as an example. Its main frequency is 1.35GHz and it has 96 sets of computing units. Compared with the previous Intel Ice Lake core display’s 1.1GHz frequency and 64 sets of units, both Improve a lot.
As for how much graphics performance can be improved in the end? After the data is quantified, it is about twice as high.
Graphic Performance between Intel and AMD
When it comes to graphics performance, you cannot do without games. Here, Intel also uses i7-1185G7 and AMD Ryzen 7 4800U for comparison. Both of them are used in games such as Gears of War: Tactical Squad, Total War: Troy, and CS: GO. They both pull under the same picture quality. Opened a gap of about 20-30 fps.
Besides, Intel also found a tenth-generation Core platform equipped with NVIDIA MX350 unique display for comparison. The gap is also obvious.
Of course, considering that the former is an entry-level mobile standalone display at this stage, it can only be guaranteed to run mainstream 3A games in 1080p medium and low quality. If you look at it this way, the new Xe core display should be compatible with some mid-range games in terms of game performance. Laptops alone are comparable, so in the future, maybe we can achieve a 1080p/60fps 3A gaming experience on a thin and light notebook.
Evo certification program, and Intel’s new logo
In addition to the new 11-generation Core, this time Intel also launched a new Evo platform brand.
In simple terms, it is equivalent to Intel’s proposal of a certification program. As long as the OEM manufacturer’s notebook can be labeled with this label, it proves that the product has passed Intel’s Evo platform index test, and the experience will be guaranteed
These tests include the following points, including
- Ensure consistent response speed when powered by a battery.
- Wake up the system within 1 second.
- Ensure 9 hours and longer battery life under the FHD screen.
- FHD screen laptops can get 4 hours of battery life after 30 minutes of charging.
Evo platform will be equipped with:
Also, notebook products built on the Evo platform will be equipped with 11th-generation Core processors, so they all natively support Thunderbolt 4, USB 4, and WiFi 6 connections, and have certain AI computing power support.
Intel said that this year
There will be more than 20 laptops that have passed the Evo platform test on the market. If you have higher requirements for the overall performance of the laptop, you may wish to give priority to the equipment under the Evo platform when buying the machine in the future. The battery life and user experience should not be bad.
Intel officially announced its new Logo
At the end of the press conference, Intel also officially announced its new Logo. Looking carefully, the letters of “intel” have not changed much, but the thickness of the strokes has been unified, and the position has been adjusted, and the circle of lines surrounding the outer layer of the letters has been removed.
Looking at it as a whole, the new design will indeed be simpler and more friendly than the old logo.
So, will you still tear it off?
