Intel's new 11th Gen H-Series processors are designed for ultraportable gaming notebooks

At CES 2021, Intel has announced its first trio of 11th Gen H-Series processors meant for the next generation of high-end ultraportable gaming notebooks.

This starts with the Intel Core i7-11375H, a 4-core, 8-thread processor with a maximum single-core boost of 5GHz. According to Intel, the processor outperforms the AMD Ryzen 4800HS and 4900H, by 30% in single-threaded performance. Then there's the Intel Core i7-11370H, also a 4-core, 8-thread processor but with a slower boost clock at 4.8GHz. Last but not least, the mid-range Intel Core i5-11300H processor with still the same cores and threads, but a Turbo Boost clock at 4.4GHz.

The 11th Gen H-Series are noteworthy for not being blown up with cores and speed numbers, but bringing important platform improvements to PC (ahem, mobile PC) gaming. First and foremost, PCIe 4.0 is  supported out of the box to take advantage of the faster RTX 30 Series mobile GPUs and the new CPUs will also support the new DDR4x 4266MHz memory. Connectivity wise, Thunderbolt 4 and even the new Wi-Fi 6E for gig+ connections can be expected as well.

Intel also teased even more 11th Gen H-series processors that will come later this year, including a high-voltage chip with 8 cores and 16 threads.

The 11th Gen H-Series come right hot on the heels of AMD's own announcement of their Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000-series mobile processors; 2021 will be a very interesting year again for PC gamers.
