Core i9-11980HK: the big Tiger Lake-H CPU for laptop gaming

The Tiger Lake range is going to expand: gaming laptops as a privileged target.

The high-performance Intel Tiger Lake-H 10nm range would therefore have at its peak an 8-core, 16-thread CPU based on the new Willow Cove architecture, the Core i9-11980HK. This reference would have 34 MB of cache, i.e. 24 MB L3 (3 MB L3 per core) and 10 MB L2 (1.25 MB per core). The Tiger Lake processors will be shipped with a 48/32 KB asymmetric L1 cache and will fully support AVX2 and AVX-512 instructions. The Tiger Lake H processors will also feature two-tier memory (2LM) and SGX (Software Guard extensions). Finally, Intel’s Tiger Lake H series will support DDR4 speeds up to 3200 MHz. There will also be up to 20 PCIe Gen 4.0 lines on the Tiger Lake-H chips, which will be a definite advantage over AMD’s Ryzen line of notebooks. tiger-lake-h-intel

Tiger Lake-H: the most powerful mobile CPUs?

This 11th generation Tiger Lake series of  CPUSs will also have other high-end 8-core offerings to tackle AMD’s Cézanne line. The Intel Tiger Lake-H line would be divided into two segments, the 35W parts will have only four cores while the 45W variants will have more than 8 cores. The Core i9-11980HK could be even higher. A comparison table allows one to form an opinion on the assets of the Tiger Lake-H which, on paper, seems destined to dominate the high-end segment.

Tiger Lake-h: What are the real differences with the Ryzen 9 5900HX?

We have in the past detailed the spectacular performance of the Ryzen 9 5900HX. It could be that the real difference for the high-end Intel is its 20 PCIe Gen 4.0 lines (compared to 16 for the 5900HX). A configuration that allows it to exploit the largest graphics cards AND the latest generation SSD storage.
