Looking for a Laptop? Just ask for an Intel 11th Gen!
Buying a laptop is always a big decision. After all, this is a multi-faceted machine used for a number of tasks, ranging from typing a humble e-mail, preparing detailed presentations, following online classes and meetings, to playing intense gaming sessions, and of course, watching films and shows (especially when others have got control of the television).
When you seek advice for purchasing a laptop, suggestions comes from all corners. And literally in all shapes and sizes! Some will tell you to consider the RAM of the device; others will talk of graphic cards, storage, ports and more. While design, storage, battery and other factors play an important in your computing experience, there is no doubting what the real spec OG is — the processor. Intel® has been the leading name in the processor department for decades now, with the words Intel Inside being most reassuring in the tech world. And now, Intel has moved the processor game to another level with its 11th Gen Core processors.
Not only is the latest generation of Intel processors better than the 10th generation (duh!), the difference in performance is quite significant, with huge changes in speed and reliability. Whether it is an executive wanting to create snappier presentations, a designer wanting to render an animation sequence in double quick time, or even a gamer who just wants speed for that Call of Duty duel, the Intel 11th Gen enables and empowers them all to do much more.
A lot of tech wizardry makes this possible. The SuperFin process technology pushes frequencies to new levels, making the processors much faster. Artificial intelligence-enhanced experiences make video calls smoother and lag-free. There is also improved support for fast charging, connectivity to external monitors, and storage options (there is support for the extremely fast Thunderbolt 4) – so you can transfer data to your portable hard drives and USB drives much faster, and also connect your laptop to other devices without any fuss.
Additionally, the difference in the gaming experience is astonishing. Imagine getting double the frame rate in graphic intensive games like Far Cry New Dawn, Borderlands 3 and Hitman 2? Well, that is what Intel 11th Gen family of processors can deliver, thanks to the new Intel Iris® Xe Graphics, which make graphics as smooth as cream pouring out of a silver jug. Designing or content creation get a speed boost as well – videos and photographs can be edited up to three times faster. And support for the Wi-Fi 6 standard means blazing fast internet browsing, phenomenal download and upload speeds.
But with great power and speed generally comes reduced battery life said no one who uses a laptop with an Intel 11th Gen processor! A laptop with the latest Intel processor will not only run for longer on a single charge, but thanks to the special Instant Wake feature, will also wake up the moment you lift its lid. Stat alert for professionals: Office productivity speeds up by up to 32 per cent when you move to the Intel 11th Gen processors!
So, the next time you plan to purchase a laptop, ask yourself: Does it have Intel 11th Gen? If it does, grab it. It is the winning eleven as far as processors go!
