The new Core i7-1195G7 and i5-1155G7 CPUs are aimed at thin-and-light laptops, offering four cores and eight threads hitting up to 5.0GHz clock speeds with a 12-28W cTDP. These Tiger Lake-U Refresh processors feature Iris Xe graphics and support Wi-Fi 6/6E and are based on Chipzilla's 10nm SuperFin process node,
The Core i7-1195G7 has 12 MB of cache and a base clock of 2.9 GHz, boosting up to 5.0 GHz in a single core and 4.6 GHz on all cores. The 96 EUs iGPU has been tuned to peak at 1.40 GHz, making the fastest iGPU.
Compared to the i7-1185G7, the new i7-1195G7 has a lower base clock, but the CPU and GPU maximum frequencies are slightly higher. These improvements may not offer significant performance gains, but they should be enough to consistently beat the 1185G7 in most workloads.
The slides are from Intel and claim that the iGPU of the processor, the Intel Core i7-1195G7 beats the Ryzen 5800U by 46 percent in Fortnite and up to 178 percent in Valheim.
On productivity workloads using Intel Quick Sync Video, the company claims up to 8x better performance on HandBrake Nightly. On AI workloads, performance improvements range from 46 percent on Nero Score to 136 percent on Adobe Lightroom Photo Merge.
Acer, Asus, Lenovo and MSI laptops powered by the two new Tiger Lake processors will be available starting this summer.
Chipzilla talked up its 5G Solution 5000, which it claims is its "first 5G M.2 solution with worldwide carrier certification". This network module is the result of a partnership with MediaTek, responsible for product definition, development, certification and support of the 5G modems, and Fibocom, the supplier of the 5G M.2 solutions (FM350-GL).
HP, Asus, and Acer plan to release their first products equipped with the 5G Solution 5000 later this year. In 2022, Intel plans to implement the 5G network module in over 30 more laptops.
