PC gaming has evolved exponentially in the last few years. Gamers are no longer bound to desktops to unleash the potential of high-end systems to enjoy graphics intensive games. The new breed of laptops have emerged as a viable, and in some cases, a sensible alternative to conventional desktops. These gaming-centric and yet all-in-one notebooks enable on-the-go gaming to help gamers participate in competitions and build communities. 

Intel has done a lot towards bringing revolutionary changes to the PC gaming industry. The chipmaker has constantly pushed the boundaries of notebook performance with industry-leading PC gaming innovations. Intel is now further fueling the progression of professional gaming with its 11th Gen H-series processors (opens in new tab). Faster and more efficient than their predecessors, the new Tiger Lake H45 processors power your dream gaming notebooks, offering desktop caliber performance. 

Faster, smarter and power-efficient

 Built on Intel's 10nm Willow Cove architecture, the new 11th Gen Tiger Lake processors offer industry-leading gaming performance and content creation capabilities, being the world's fastest (opens in new tab) single-threaded laptop processor. This means the new class of ultraportable gaming systems lets users accomplish more with less power consumption. The 11th Gen Intel Core H-series processors also feature the company’s Turbo-Boost Max Technology 3.0, Speed Optimizer, and Extreme Tuning Utility. Here's how these advanced computing technologies enhance the notebooks’ performance.

  •  The Turbo Boost 3.0 technology enables notebooks to deliver up to 5GHz turbo frequencies by employing the best-performing cores to increase performance. The technology ensures better optimization for a higher power and performance range. 
  •  Intel Speed Optimizer is a one-click overclock (opens in new tab) functionality tool to improve the system’s multithreaded performance. The easy-to-use tool analyzes the CPU’s voltage and temperature to increase the speed for better overall response time during heavy tasks. 
  •  The Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel XTU) further makes it possible for gamers to overclock, monitor, and stress the system.  
  •  The new processors also feature built-in AI acceleration to dramatically accelerate the AI-enhanced applications and modern workflows.

Laptops powered by 11th Gen Intel Core H-series processors offer a perfect balance of mobility and performance. In addition to the fastest single-threaded performance, the CPUs also bring 19% multithreaded performance improvement over last-gen hardware, making new notebooks significantly faster and efficient even while running the most complicated tasks such as 3D rendering and video editing. Based on the new Willow Cove Core microarchitecture, the 11th Gen Intel Core H-series processors are fabricated using Intel's third-generation 10 nanometer SuperFin process technology and offer 20 lanes of PCIe Gen 4 with RST bootable RAID.

That said, Intel 11th Gen Core H-series processor-powered high-performance laptops deliver an unmatched gaming experience by allowing you to fully immerse yourself in single-player and multiplayer games like Valorant, Call of Duty: Warzone, CS:GO, and more. 

Faster storage and enhanced connectivity 

Moreover, the 11th Gen Intel Core H-series chipsets employ Intel’s Rapid Storage Technology that improves the system’s responsiveness and expandability. With 20 PCIe Gen 4 lanes direct from the CPU, it accelerates the notebook's gaming performance and enables the use of the latest SSDs and reduces power consumption even with multiple SATA or PCIe drives. Intel RST-backed laptops offer transfer speeds up to 1 GB/s to maximize storage performance and response time of the machine with heavy memory tasks. More importantly, a select few laptops come equipped with Intel’s third-generation Optane H20 memory (opens in new tab) for substantially faster sequential read and write speeds.

The powerful H-series lineup offers the latest connectivity standards (opens in new tab). These processors offer built-in support for Thunderbolt 4 (opens in new tab) to offer a maximum throughput of 40Gbps, USB4 support, and video signal support to two 4K displays. Besides, the 11th Gen Intel Core H-series processors feature the new 6GHz Discrete Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+) (opens in new tab) wireless standard to reach gigabit speeds with lower latency. Laptops powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core H-series processors offer Wi-Fi 6/6E, 3 times faster network speeds and up to 75% lower latency.

Intel 11th Gen Core CPU powered laptops 

Based on your requirement and budget, you can choose from a myriad of design and hardware options. Intel’s 11th Gen Intel Core H-series processors power over 80 laptops. With Intel, more than 30 laptops are offered under the ultraportable category. These notebooks measure a mere 20mm in thickness or even less and yet offer a full suite of Intel’s latest storage, power and connectivity technologies. 

By the end of June, Acer and Asus will unleash their gaming laptops powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core processors. Acer will launch the Predator Helios 300 powered by the Intel Core i7, and the Nitro 5—which is also powered by a Core i7 processor. Meanwhile, Asus also plans to release a couple of laptops. This includes the Intel Core i9-powered Asus TUF F15 and the Asus TUF F17 that is powered by a Core i5. Over the next few months, we should see other companies like Dell, HP and Lenovo release powerful gaming devices.

You will be able to buy them from the leading e-commerce portals and offline retailers across the country. More information on Tiger Lake-H CPUs can be found on Intel's website (opens in new tab), along with more information on the 11th Gen H-series (opens in new tab).
