Intel Core i5-11400H
The Intel Core i5-11400H is a high-end hexa-core SoC for gaming laptops and mobile workstations. It is based on the Tiger Lake H45 generation and was announced in mid 2021. It integrates six Willow Cove processor cores (12 threads thanks to HyperThreading). The base clock speed depends on the TDP setting and at 45 Watt is at 2.7 GHz. The single core boost speed can reach up to 4.5 GHz, all cores can reach up to 4.1 GHz. The CPU geatures 12 MB L3 cache and supports DDR4-3200 memory.
Thanks to the new Tiger Lake architecture, the i5-11400H should be faster than the old Intel Core i7-10850H (Comet Lake-H, 6 cores, 2.7 - 5.1 GHz, 12 MB L3) in single and multi threaded workloads and similar to the Ryzen 5 5600H (Zen 3, 6 cores, 3.3 - 4.2 GHz, 16 MB L3). Therefore, the i5 is well suited for even very demanding tasks.
The SoC features an improved Gen 12 graphics adapter called UHD Graphics with 16 EUs.
Furthermore, Tiger Lake SoCs add PCIe 4 support (20 lanes in the H45 series), AI hardware acceleration, and the partial integration of Thunderbolt 4/USB 4 and Wi-Fi 6E in the chip.
The chip is produced on the second-gen 10 nm Intel SuperFin process that should be comparable to the 7 nm TSMC process (used for e.g. Ryzen 4000 series). The default TDP is rated at 45 W at 2.7 GHz base speed, at 35 Watt the base clock speed decreases to 2.2 GHz (cTDP down).
