Intel also introduced its first 5G product for the next generation of PC experiences, Intel 5G Solution 5000, following the collaboration with MediaTek and Fibocom.

Chris Walker, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of Mobility Client Platforms, said: “We’ve taken the world’s best processor for thin-and-light Windows laptops and made the experience even better with the addition of our two new 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics.”

11th Gen Intel Core processor-based laptops deliver:

# Up to 5 gigahertz (GHz) in high-volume thin-and-light designs — an industry first

# Up to 25 percent overall application performance advantage over the competition

# Designs with Intel Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) for improved connectivity

# ISV optimizations for up to eight times faster transcoding and up to twice the video editing speed over the competition

# Impressive 1080p gameplay on new and popular titles, such as Valheim, with up to a 2.7 higher frame rate than that of the competition.

Acer, ASUS, Lenovo and MSI are planning to launch laptops utilizing Intel Core i7-1195G7 and Intel Core i5-1155G7 this summer. Nearly 250 designs powered by 11th Gen Intel Core U-series processors are expected by this holiday season.

11th Gen Intel Core processor-based platforms combined with the second-generation Intel Optane memory H20 with solid state storage (SSD) accelerate tasks to management of large media, gaming files and applications with a new level of responsiveness and large storage capacity.

SSDs with Intel Optane memory are the fastest, enabling the ability to launch applications, such as Adobe Photoshop, up to 49 percent faster.

To date, more than 85 Intel Evo designs have launched from top OEMs including Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI and Samsung, and Intel expects to verify more than 100 designs from over 15 OEMs by the end of this year.

Intel plans to invest more than $50 million in Intel Evo ecosystem innovation this year.

The Intel 5G Solution 5000 delivers nearly five-times speed increases over Intel Gigabit Long-Term Evolution (LTE) from anywhere. Intel partnered with MediaTek on product definition, development, certification and support of 5G modem solutions for the next generation of PC experiences and Fibocom to supply 5G M.2 solutions (FM350-GL).

Acer, ASUS and HP are among the first OEMs expected this year to enable modern connected laptops with the Intel 5G Solution 5000 based on 11th Gen Intel Core U- and H-series processors. The momentum continues in 2022 with over 30 designs expected.

The Intel 5G Solution 5000 builds on collaborations with ecosystem partners, China Mobile, HP and MediaTek and DoCoMo and HP.
