Intel Core i9-11980HK Promises Bigger Improvements

Last Updated on June 29, 2021 by Amrit Chatterjee

The latest and one of the most advanced Intel Core i9-11980HK will be delivering around 19 % generation-on-generation improvement in functionalities and performance. In addition, there will be more than 80 laptops which will be available from the OEMs. The top-end models of the CPU are fully overclockable and are unlocked as well. Advanced threat detection is also enabled in the latest vPro commercial CPUs.

Intel has brought to the market around ten new laptops built on the Tiger Lake CPU architecture. These laptops can be used for heavy gaming and even in workstations for doing some powerful work. We have been promised to get performance equivalent to a high-end desktop, and there will be 19 % better gen-on-gen performance for the multi-thread category. There are several other platform-level improvements as well because of the support from the PCIe 4.0 version.

The latest H-series CPUs have TDPs of around 65 Watt, and they join along with the Tiger Lake CPUs, which aimed to produce thin and light-weighted machines for daily use. Intel has claimed that there will be around 30 new laptops based on the Tiger Lake H CPUs, which will be very thin, less than 20mm.

Core i9-11980HK from Intel Tiger lake H CPUs promises to provide superior performance on the laptops.

The latest 11th Gen CPUs also come equipped with UHD Graphics, which is actually an integrated GPU. This has been built based on the Xe-LP design of architecture that Intel has newly developed. This architecture involves 32 execution units. The other feature that the platform provides is Wi-Fi 6E, and Thunderbolt 4. While these CPUs were launched, i7 and i9 had received 8 cores, and the i5 modules came with 6 cores. The Xenon W series of laptops had brought two different units, which were all aimed for commercial working machines. They had the support of the vPro business platform by Intel. It had the capabilities of Control-flow Enforcement Technology and the technology of Thread Detection.

These superior Tiger Lake H CPUs allow total overclocking up to 5 GHz

Tiger Lake processors have used the core architecture of Willow Cove. They have been fabricated and designed using the 10mm SuperFin method. The high bandwidth that has been offered is mainly due to the PCIe 4.0 lanes. This high bandwidth allows us to have discrete connections with the graphics unit and the NVME SSD. In order to use a secondary display, we can make use of Dual eDP graphics.

The top-end processor from Intel, Core i9-11980HK, has been capped as the best mobile gaming processor globally. The company is also calling all the laptops equipped with the CPU as Halo Enthusiast laptops. The CPU is totally overclockable and unlocked. There are 8 cores added with Hyper-Threading and an L3 cache memory of 24 MB. Its base frequency is 2.6 GHz and is able to extend up to 3.3 GHz for a TDP of 65 Watt. The frequency can even be boosted up to 5 GHz when we use Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0. The thermal conditions should also allow the machine to get overclocked to such a great extent.
