Intel announced what it called the world’s fastest mobile processor with its 12th Gen Intel Core family of chips. At its virtual event for the tech trade show CES 2022 in Las Vegas, Intel introduced 28 new 12th Gen Intel Core mobile processors and another 22 desktop processors (which come on the heels of an October launch of desktop chips). Intel said the chips are up to 40% faster than the previous generation mobile processors.
And that represents a bigger improvement than usual for the company as it battles Advanced Micro Devices, which has been historically weaker and slower but has been on a growth path for the past few years thanks to its Zen architecture. A couple of hours ago, AMD also introduced its latest family of Ryzen 6000 mobile processors.

Intel said the 12th Gen Intel Core H-series is the world’s best mobile gaming platform, delivering up to 28% faster gaming than its previous Intel Core i9-11980HK. For content creation, users may see up to 43% higher performance in 3D rendering gen-over-gen.
“It’s all about the core performance this generation for us,” said Dan Rogers, director of marketing and product management at the client computing group at Intel, in an interview with GamesBeat.
“We have a pretty significant step forward in the architecture, with both types of cores. Putting them together in this performance hybrid configuration, as we call it, is a big step and it sets a trajectory for us on the roadmap.”
The new CPU family has memory support for DDR5/LPDDR5and DDR4/LPDDR4 modules to 4800MT/s –a first for the H-series mobile processors.
And it also supports Intel Wi-Fi 6E, which delivers three times faster connectivity on exclusive high-speed channels without legacy Wi-Fi interference. And it has Thunderbolt4 support that delivers transfer speeds up to 40Gbps and PC connectivity to multiple 4K monitors and accessories.
Designed for enthusiast gamers, creators, and engineering professionals who want to push their laptop performance to the next level, the new 12th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors deliver desktop-caliber performance on the go, Intel said.
Intel said its 11th Gen Intel Core vPro is the best platform for business customers, particularly for thin-and-light laptops. Intel has 27 new processors for this category, said company VP Josh Newman.
“Intel is focusing on making [the PC] the best tool for people to stay connected, and do the things that matter most to them,” Newman said on a press call. “More than 500 new designs for laptops and desktops will come to market in 2021. Performance matters, not just when plugged in. But when unplugged and on battery.”
In addition to the processors, Intel provides its “hardware shield” for security and AI-based threat detection to stop ransomware and crypto-mining attacks.
High performance, unlocked. H. High performance. P. Performance for thin & light.
During the last 15 years, Intel has invested more than $1 billion globally in education, including training for more than 15 million teachers. Last April, Intel launched the Online Learning Initiative and has provided hundreds of thousands of devices, as well as connectivity and resources, to students worldwide. Intel will continue these efforts in 2021 with partners from inside and outside the technology industry.
For gamers, Intel created the 11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors for enthusiast-level gaming laptops as thin as 16 millimeters. Intel is unveiling a dozen new mobile processors today.
The gaming processor platform features capture and stream capabilities that are built into the Intel graphics control panel that is on every Intel 11th Gen core processor, Newman said.
Led by the Intel Core i7 Special Edition 4-core processor with up to 5 gigahertz (GHz) Turbo, these H35 processors are targeted explicitly for ultraportable gaming.
They feature new Gen 4 PCIE architecture for connecting to latest discrete graphics and deliver low latency and immersive gameplay on the go.
Take advantage of 13th Gen Intel Core processor performance improvements with existing Intel 600 chipset-based motherboards. 13th Gen Intel Core desktop “K” processors and the Intel Z790 chipset will be available starting Oct. 20, 2022, including boxed processors, motherboards and desktop system sales.
Combined with both the latest DDR5 memory support and continued DDR4 memory support, users can enjoy the benefits of 13th Gen Intel Core while customizing their setup based on their own feature and budget preferences.
Expanding its 11th Gen mobile processor line-up, American chipmaker Intel on Tuesday announced the 11th Gen H-series mobile processors for gaming laptops. According to the company, the new mobile processors are also aimed at content creation and mobile workstations. One of the major differences between the existing 11th Gen Intel Core processors (Tiger Lake U) and the newly unveiled ones (Tiger Lake H) is in the integrated graphic processing unit.
The new processors are paired with the less powerful UHD integrated graphics (32 execution units compared to Iris’ 96 EUs). However, Intel said that the UHD graphics in the Tiger Lake-H series chips is based on Xe architecture, but it is not branded as Xe.
The 11th Gen Intel H-series processors are based on 10 nanometer SuperFin process technology, feature up to 8 cores and 16 threads, with single and dual-core turbo performance up to 5.0GHz.
According to Intel, the central processing unit (CPU) can directly access GDDR6 memory attached to the graphics card, enabling gamers to experience higher framerates with lower latency, and load large textures faster.
The mobile processor offers 2.5 times the total PCIe bandwidth to the CPU compared with the 10th Gen H-series processors, and three times the total PCIe bandwidth compared with other industry processors.

The first laptops powered by the new 11th Gen H35 chips are expect to be announce at CES 2021, including models from Acer, Asus, MSI, and Vaio, with Intel expecting over 40 designs released in the first half of the year.
