Intel today expanded the 11th-Gen lineup with the launch of H-series mobile CPUs to power gaming machines in 2021. Speaking at the event, Intel Executive Vice President Gregory Bryant said that Intel's bold ambition is to advance computing and enrich the lives of every person on earth. Intel says the new chips made for this are able to support up to 5GHz in speed, utilising Intel's graphics in a laptop built to be 1.6cm thick.

Intel has also introduced Hardware Shield, with the help of which Intel is offering hardware-based security as well as artificial intelligence (AI) threat detection against ransomware and crypto-mining attacks. The company also promised a new combination of high-power cores called Golden Lake and new Gracemont cores for efficiency gains. "More than 60 new laptops from top manufacturers will be available this year, combining the security and manageability of vPro and the unbelievable on-the-go experiences of Intel Evo". This boost in performance will enable the consumers to experience smooth application performance and browsing while multitasking, along with advanced camera and connectivity features for an enriched video conferencing and viewing experience. The company has announced a new set of H-series chips which are aimed at ultraportable gaming laptops and being some of the benefits of its Tiger Lake design - including 10nm process and the Xe integrated graphics, into a lower-end 35W chip design (as opposed to the 45W chips of the Tiger Lake range).

The top-notch processor under this series is the Core i7 Special Edition 4-core processor with up to clock speeds of 5GHz. Brands like Asus, Acer, MSI are among others that are expected to announce their systems powered by the H-Series.

More than the Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Redland and Logan council areas are in lockdown until 6pm Monday as a result. The region was plunged into lockdown on Friday, following the cleaner's case. "Because it is highly contagious", she said.

Intel also announced an 8-core processor that will start shipping later this quarter. They are as thin as 16 millimeters and feature new Gen 4 PCIE architecture for connecting to the latest discrete graphics. The company has also demonstrated the performance of the 11th Gen Intel Core S-series desktop processors.

The company also teased its Rocket Lake Intel Core i9-11900K processor that comes with PCIe support bumping up the IPC (instructions per cycle) by 19 percent. Intel's new line of hybrid chips will surely fill in at least some of the gap between their last-gen CPUs and Apple's M1.

While the company is planning to kick off mass production of Core i3 CPUs at TSMC's 5nm node in 2H21, Intel's mid-range and high-end CPUs are projected to enter mass production using TSMC's 3nm node in 2H22.In recent years, Intel has experienced some setbacks in the development of 10nm and 7nm processes, which in turn greatly hindered its competitiveness in the market.
