Intel Core i5-11500H
The Intel Core i5-11500H is a high end hexa core SoC for gaming laptops and mobile workstations. It is based on the Tiger Lake H45 generation and will be 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 specified at 2.9 GHz. The single core boost speed can reach up to 4.6 GHz, all cores can reach up to 4.2 GHz. The CPU offers 12 MB level 3 cache and supports DDR4-3200 memory. Compared to the slower clocked i5-11400H, the 11500H offers professional management features like Intel vPro, SIPP or TXT.
Thanks to the new Tiger Lake architecture, the i5-11500H should be faster than the old Intel Core i7-10850H (Comet Lake-H, 6 cores, 2.7 - 5.1 GHz, 16 MB L3) in single and multi threaded performance and similar to the Ryzen 5 5600H (Zen 3, 6 cores, 3.3 - 4.4 GHz, 16 MB L3). Therefore, the i7 is well suited for even very demanding tasks.
The SoC also included the improved Xe graphics card called UHD graphics with all 32 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 in the improved 10nm process (called 10nm SuperFin) at Intel, which should be comparable to the 7nm process at TSMC (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).
