We know the Tiger Lake-H was coming in the second quarter of 2021, but the Asus event indicates that we’ll see the processor in less than two weeks. Tiger Lake-H is built on the 11th generation Tiger Lake platform for thin and light laptops. The new range uses the same underlying architecture, but the chips come with a 45-watt TDP, which exceeds the maximum 28 watts on the standard range. Intel hasn’t announced anything, but we expect higher core counts and clock speeds on the Tiger Lake-H range as well.
Asus may be teasing its ROG Zephyrus M16 laptop, which leaked on amazon on 14 April. The listing is for the M16 GU603HR, which comes with an Intel Core i9-11900H processor, 32GB of RAM, an RTX 3070 mobile graphics card, and a 2TB SSD. The new model features a 16:10 display, which is becoming increasingly popular in laptops like the Dell XPS 13.
The Intel i9-11900H is rumored to come with eight cores and 16 threads, 2.5GHz base clock, 4.4GHz all-core boost, and 4.9GHz single-core boost. It sits under the i9-11980HK, which is rumored to run up to 65 watts.
The Tiger Lake-H follows the Tiger Lake-H35 launch earlier this year. Like the Tiger Lake-H35, the new range uses the same 10nm architecture on which Intel’s 11th-gen mobile platform is based. Intel has long struggled to move away from its 14nm architecture, but a recent teaser from Tiger Lake-H suggests that the CPU giant has finally found its way. That’s great for mobile gamers, and it bodes well for Intel’s Elder Lake desktop platform that’s set to launch later this year.
Asus may not launch the M16 on May 11, but Tiger Lake-H laptops are coming soon. With the new M16, hope asus To refresh your Tuf F17 laptop with Tiger Lake-H processor. Leaks point to a more modest configuration than the M16, with the F17 packing the i7-11800H, 16GB of RAM, and the RTX 3060.
