Intel gave us a deep look at its upcoming 11 th generation” Tiger Lake” CPUs last month– now, it’s formally unveiling the chips we can expect in thin and light laptops later on this year. Which’s not all: the business also announced “Intel Evo,” the 2nd version of its next-generation “Project Athena” initiative. That’ll make it easy for consumers to discover the laptop computers making the most of its newest hardware. While it’s still disappointing that the company isn’t making much development reaching 7nm chips, like its main rival AMD, it’s clear that Intel is still attempting to make its 11 th generation CPUs a helpful upgrade for customers.
Prior to we dive into the chips themselves, let’s check out Intel Evo. You can think about it like Intel’s “ultrabook” effort. It’ll make sure that licensed devices will be running 11 th-gen hardware; wake from sleep in less than a 2nd; offer a minimum of 9 hours of real-world battery life with 1080 p screens; and support quick charging (four hours of juice with simply a 30 minute charge). It was a bit complicated when the company talked up Project Athena so much without in fact marketing it to customers. Now, shoppers can just search for the Intel Evo badge.
