The Intel Core i7-11375H is a high-performance mobile processor for light gaming laptops launched in the first quarter of 2021. This Tiger Lake H35 generation of processor integrates four Willow Cove processor cores that are capable of hyper-threading thus processing 8 threads. The default TDP (power limit) can be increased from the default 28W to 35W by increasing the base clock frequency from 3GHz to 3.3GHz (35W cTDP-up). The maximum turbo boost frequency for all the four cores under a productivity workload can reach up to 5.0GHz. There’s also 12MB of Intel Smart L3 cache available for the chip. The chip’s die size operates at a maximum CPU temperature of 100oC.
This CPU integrates Iris Xe Graphics with 96 execution units running at a maximum frequency of 1350MHz. With this graphics specifications, the Core i7-11375H can support 4K displays at 60Hz refresh rate in HDMI, DP, eDP – Integrated Flat Panel. The chip is produced on a 10nm Intel SuperFin processing node which Intel claims to be comparable to the 7 nm TSMC process. Furthermore, the Core i7-11375H also has the same memory specifications as the Tiger Lake UP3 processor lineup. The processor features two memory types; a dual memory DDR4-3200 and LPDDR4x-4267 channel configurations that can support a maximum of 64GB of memory size. The chip also supports Thunderbolt 4 and PCIe version 3.0 and 4.0 with a bus speed of 4 GT/s.
The performance of Core i7-11375H should be similar to the Core i7-11370H with the only difference in the 0.2GHz higher turbo boost frequency. Core i7-11375H performs slightly faster than Core i7-11370H in short single-threaded workloads. However, in multi-threaded tasks, the performance loss is not significant. Additionally, Intel has added some features to Tiger Lake H35 to improve the overall system performance over the previous generation of processors; these include Turbo Boost 2.0 (up to 3.2 GHz), third-generation Speed Shift (SS) technology, and hardware-enhanced security features.
The Core i7-11375H is important in the market for ultraportable laptops due to its ability to offer balanced performance in conjunction with the power-efficient design. The chip also indicates a coherent design where it supports all the necessary connectivity to offer a seamless experience. This chip is fastest in lightly-threaded workloads with better instructions per clock (IPC) and substantial performance improvement over the previous 10th generation of Intel processors. It’s also quite fast in multithreaded workloads when compared to prior quad-core designs.
