Last week, Intel released Tiger Lake-H laptop processors aimed at laptops up to 14 ”. The processor family is Intel’s newest offering to the high-performance laptop market by: Stepping above Intel’s agile U and Y chips from the same Tiger Lake architecture we were used to for the first time last year, Tiger Lake-H is bigger and better. It has up to 8 CPU cores and other benefits such as additional PCIe lanes. Overall, Intel’s H-series chips serve as the backbone of the laptop’s endeavors. Long and with Tiger Lake-H, they wanted to carry on that tradition.
While last week was the official release of Tiger Lake-H, which has become more common for laptop launches, the ban for release information and hardware monitoring took place to date. Separate So, while we were able to use the platform last week, it is only today that we can share with you our data on TGL-H and our assessment of whether it is based on Intel̵7;s claims or not. How to arrange Up to the competition
Like other Intel laptop chips, Tiger Lake-H is multifaceted, with the company needed to balance CPU performance, GPU performance and power consumption, all while ensuring it is optimized for top-of-the-line productivity. Intel’s revamped “SuperFin” 10nm process, balancing all these elements is a challenge in and of itself, ignoring the arch-rivals AMD looking to compete with the Ryzen 5000 Mobile (Cezanne) APU used.

Intel reference design laptop: Core i9-11980HK Inside
For our Tiger Lake-H performance review, Intel has once again submitted their reference design laptop. As with last year’s Tiger Lake-U release, these reference design laptops are not built-in retail laptops. Rather, it is an advanced engineering example designed to demonstrate the performance of the underlying hardware, in this case the BIOS states that the laptop was assembled by MSI.
Want to get ahead in terms of laptop performance, Intel’s TGL-H reference design laptop is as high-end as you might imagine. The best of Intel is the Core i9-11980HK, which features 8 Willow Cove architecture CPU cores with SMT for a total of 16 threads.This processor can turbo up to 5.0GHz on favorite cores behind previous Comet Lake-H CPUs. A bit of Intel’s front, but maintains similar clock speeds while making a difference on the IPC.
Unfortunately, the desire for the best forward means that Intel has configured the CPUs on this system to run at 65W instead of the typical 45W TDP of most high-end laptops, 65W is the correct mode. As for this chip, so strictly speaking, Intel isn’t juicing the chip. But the bulk of the Tiger Lake-H lineup aims to run at more eco-friendly 45W speeds. This gives Intel systems a natural advantage in terms of performance, as they offer more TDP headroom to play with.

Meanwhile, focusing on CPU performance with TGL-H comes at a cost for the performance of the integrated GPU.The TGL-H component contains Intel’s Xe-LP GPU, but only 32 EU instead of the 96 found in the system. High-end Tiger Lake-U with TGL-H Intel expects these systems to come with separate GP Uss, so they don’t dedicate dead space to the built-in GPUs, which might not be of much use. As a result, the reference system comes with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 laptop graphics card as well, paired with its own 6GB GDDR6.
Rounding out the system package comes with 32GB of DDR4-3200 installed, the storage is provided by a pair of Phison E16-based OEM drives, allowing Intel to boast of the benefits of a PCIe 4.0 connection for an SSD. Wi-Fi is also powered by Intel using the company’s new AX210 adapter, which offers Wi-Fi 6E + BT5.2 on a single M.2 adapter.It’s worth noting that the AX210 is a discrete adapter. The TGL-H’s Integrated MAC (CNVi) is not fully segmented, as Wi-Fi 6E is not supported.
And in keeping with making this reference system look as close to a retail design as possible, Intel is also putting the usual Intel Core and NVIDIA GeForce stickers on the laptops.
Unfortunately, we had quite a bit of time with the system before today’s ban. The boycott of the original performance figure was set last Thursday (May 13).PHowever, due to delays in shipping these laptops to reviewers, we didn’t receive the system until late last week and Intel lifted the ban. Hence, with just two days of reviewing the system, we only had the opportunity to look at the most important aspects of the system in terms of performance.
