Intel’s 11th generation Tiger Lake processors are the latest entry of the company’s SoCs in the notebook market. Many OEMs have already adopted the new SKU line-up and have even decided to upgrade their existing machines with intel 10nm based chipsets.
Intel’s Tiger Lake processors are expected to be widely available on more laptops by the end of this month.
Dell’s new Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1 notebook comes with the new Tiger Lake chipsets. The machine is powered by the Core i5-1135G7 processor and comes with all the next-gen SoCs’ goodies.
The device is available for a final retail price of USD 650 after applying the code ’50OFF699′ at checkout, as claimed by the sources. The device is powered by a Core i5, which is more than enough for a casual browsing and streaming experience. It is sufficient for students to use. The new integrated Iris Xe iGPU makes light editing and gaming possible. Intel claims that the new GPU is enough to offer a gaming experience equal to a dedicated GeForce MX graphics.
The laptop offering such a low price means that the manufacturer must cut on some of the other specifications. The notebook sports 8GB RAM, which is a single-channel. Not to mention the display sports an outdated resolution of 768 pixels. Another variant available offers a display with a 1080p resolution, but that would increase the cost by $50.
The RAM, however, is still upgradable even on the 768p resolution variant. It is recommended to purchase the 1080p resolution model, as the 768p is an outdated feature and is worthless using with a 14-inch windows convertible.
