Intel introduces Evo platform based on 11th Gen Intel Core
For faster gaming, streaming and real-world workflows using thin and light laptops, Intel has introduced its 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Iris Xe graphics. The processors are claimed to deliver up to 2.7 times faster content creation, over 20 per cent faster office productivity and more than two time faster gaming and streaming in real-world workflows compared with competitive products.
At the same time, Intel introduced the Evo platform. The Evo brand will be applied ot laptops that consistently meet or beat the target performance parameters, such as consistent battery responsiveness, system wakes from sleep in less than one second, real-world battery life of nine or more hours – with FHD displays, and fast charging (i.e up to a four hour charge in less than 30 minutes on systems with FHD displays).
The Evo platform brand includes designs based on 11th Gen Intel Core processors, with over 150 designs in development at brands such as Acer, Asus, Dell, Dynabook, HP, Lenovo, LG, MSI, Razer and Samsung.
The 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics (code-named Tiger Lake) are claimed to be the world’s best processors for thin-and-light laptops, offering capabilities for real-world productivity, collaboration, creation, gaming and entertainment across Windows and ChromeOS-based laptops.
The Intel Evo platforms also feature best-in-class wired and wireless connectivity, says Intel, with integrated Thunderbolt 4 universal cable connectivity and Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), premium audio, webcam and display.
The processors use Intel’s SuperFin process technology to optimise power efficiency, while running at significantly higher frequencies compared with earlier generations.
Integrated features include optimised CPU, GPU, artificial intelligence (AI) acceleration and software optimisation. Immersive and personal AI-enhanced experiences offered include enhanced audio with CPU offload for background noise suppression via Intel Gaussian and Neural Accelerator 2.0 (Intel GNA), AI-accelerated background blur and video super-resolution, the latest video decode and integrated Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), described as the best Wi-Fi technology for video conferencing.
