With the 11th generation of Intel processors, you will be able to have a chip offering up to 5 GHz of clock speed in your ultraportable. Impressive!
Processors have made huge strides in recent years. With ever more impressive miniaturization, chips are getting more powerful and smaller and smaller. They can therefore be integrated into very compact devices, such as our laptops, smartphones or smartwatches. With its 11th generation of processors, Intel hit hard.
Intel unveils 11th generation chips for ultraportable computers
When you think of the thinnest and lightest computers, you immediately think of their main aspect, which is portability. If you want a more powerful machine, you will go for something larger, with the necessary components for high performance. But that could be history with the latest generation of chips from Intel, the 11ᵉ.
Up to 5 GHz in Turbo mode
During Computex 2021, the American founder unveiled its new U series of processors, including its most powerful models, namely the Core i7-1195G7 and Core-i5-1155G7. The former boasts a base clock speed of 2.9 GHz but once Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0 technology is enabled, users can enjoy a single-core clock speed of up to 5.0 GHz. .
This would therefore be the first time that ultraportables could benefit from a 5.0 GHz processor, enough to envision new possibilities for the most demanding users, and the most nomadic, who regularly need to perform tasks requiring a lot. processor power. The Core i5-1155G7, meanwhile, has a base clock speed of 2.5 GHz and can go up to 4.5 GHz in Turbo, which is also very impressive.
These new chips are expected in the fall. It will be interesting to see what machines manufacturers can offer with such components. Until then, if you are planning on changing your laptop, you might be better off waiting a few more months if you can.
