Intel’s Tiger Lake-H CPUs have made quite several appearances on the internet, and we have seen them recently alongside the Intel NUC 11 Extreme and a rugged workstation. But they aren’t due to arrive until Q2 of this year.
We now have a good idea about what they could have in store for us, thanks to Twitter user @9550pro. According to the leaker’s information, the top-of-the-line Intel Core i9-11980HK is an 8C/16T CPU with a base clock of 2.6GHz and a boost clock of up to 5.0GHz on a single-core and has a cTDP (up) of 65W.
According to the leaked information, we can find that the base and boost clocks are lower compared to the previous-generation Intel Core i9-10980HK (5.3GHz). There are several improvements, across the board, such as a higher L3 cache (24MB vs. 16MB), better GPU, faster RAM, and a newer 10nm process node.
In terms of the Intel Core i9-11900H, the base and boost clocks are 2.5GHz and 4.4GHz, respectively. Its single and dual-core boost clocks max out at 4.9GHz. Its 35W cTDP (down) is understandable, given the significantly lower 2.1GHz clock speed.
The Intel Core i7-11800H has an eight-core and sixteen-thread configuration but has a reduced base (2.4GHz) and boost (4.2GHz) clocks. It also does not come with Intel’s Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology, thereby reducing its maximum single and dual-core boost values to 4.6GHz. It has a cTDP of 35W (down) with a rated clock speed of 2.0GHz.
Finally, coming to the Intel Core i5-11400H, a six-core and twelve-thread processor clocked at a depth of 2.7GHz (base) and a 4.1GHz (all-core boost). The processor supports up to 2,933MHz DDR4 RAM.
We can expect even more Tiger Lake-H CPUs to hit the market soon but, it still might be a good option to wait for a while and see the power of Alder Lake’s hybrid CPU architecture in action.
