Intel Tiger Lake laptops (i7-1165G7 & i5-1135G7 – 11th gen) – the complete list
By Andrei Girbea - @ andreigirbea , last updated on December 16, 2020

Tiger Lake is Intel’s 11th-gen Core hardware designed for ultrabooks and portable laptops, and their most recent platform at the time of this article, available in stores from Q4-2020.

This follows-up on Intel’s Ice Lake 10th-gen platform and is mostly a refinement in terms of CPU design, features, and clock speeds, supplemented by a significant update in iGPU performance, with the inclusion of Intel Iris Xe graphics on most i5 and i7 processors of this generation.

We’ve tested quite a few different laptops based on Intel Tiger Lake hardware so far, and you’ll find all our reviews via this link.

Still, we’re not going to focus on the platform’s overall performance in this article or compare it to AMD’s Ryzen U alternative, that’s something we’re touching on in separate posts (and can also check out in this analysis from dr. Ian Cutress), especially since Tiger Lake implementations vary greatly between products, based on their power settings and thermal solutions. That’s why it’s important to go through detailed reviews that get in-depth on important aspects such as the performance, thermals, and noise, in order to get the best value with these Tiger Lake laptops.

Instead, we’ll quickly touch on what to generally expect from the 11th-gen Intel Tiger Lake platform and compile a detailed list of all the available laptops built on this hardware, split into two sections: sub-14-inch ultrabooks and full-size 15+ inch notebooks.

In a few words, expect Tiger Lake devices to snappily handle everyday use and run efficiently on battery, as the 11th-gen processors run at higher clocks (and thus slightly increased performance) at similar power, as well as require less power for basic chores, compared to the 10th-gen options. Furthermore, they significantly improve on their predecessors in GPU-loads such as light-gaming or video-processing, but don’t expect significant changes in multi-threaded performance, and keep-in-mind the previously mentioned performance variation between different SKUs.

As far as the actual Tiger Lake processors go, there are actually two different kinds, code-named UP3 and UP4. The term UP3 designates what we previously knew as Core U processors, with TDPs between 12 and 28 W. Details below.

We’re mostly looking at quad-core processors based on Willow Cove Cores built on Intel’s refined 10nm SF-SuperFin lithography, and running at up to 4.8 GHz in Single-Core loads, while previous-gen Ice Lake 10th-gen processors ran at up to 4.0 GHz.

These are paired with an updated memory controller, updated media encoders, integrated Thunderbolt 4 and PCIe gen4 on the SOC, and a couple of other technological improvements, but especially Intel’s Iris Xe G7 graphics on the i5s/i7s, which is by far the major step-up for the Tiger lake platform in comparison to Ice Lake.

Some of the information presented here and pictures are based on this article.

With these out of the way, UP4 designates what we previously knew as the Core Y processors, with TDPs between 7 and 15 W. Details below.

i3-1110G4 2C / 4T 6 1800 3900 3900 48 1100 3733 LPDDR4x

The immediate result is that there’s no more U and Y distinct branding for the Tiger Lake platform, and that’s going to generate further confusion, especially paired with the fact that each OEM can implement the processors at various TDPs within the allowed limits.

Generally, expect the UP4 Class processors to be implemented in the lightest and thinnest devices, such as the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano. Hopefully, some of these might also get fanless cooling, and we plan to further cover these UP4 SoCs in future articles here on the site once they’re available and we get to test them.

However, most Tiger Lake laptops that you’ll find in stores run on the Class UP3 Intel i7-1165G7 and i5-1135G7 processors, both quad-core CPUs with Intel Iris Xe G7 graphics. The Core i7-1165G7 runs at slightly faster clocks and includes a more powerful iGPU with 96 Execution Units, but based on what we’ve seen so far, it’s primarily an option I’d recommend on designs with adequate power-profiles and thermal solutions. At the same time, the i7 will most likely throttle with combined loads based on our experience in the thinner or the more basic models, that’s why the i5 is the better value here, even if it runs at lower cocks and integrates the more basic Iris Xe iGPU with 80 EUs.

As for the Core i3 available in the more affordable units, that’s only a dual-core processor with previous-gen Intel UHD G4 graphics. Based on our tests, it’s fine for basic use when paired with at least 8 GB of RAM and SSD storage, but the i5 is the more solid choice and worth paying extra if you can squeeze it within your budget. A quad-core i3 is also available, but still with previous-gen G4 graphics.

Finally, the Core i7-1185G7 sits at the top of the list as the highest-tier Tiger Lake processor currently available, but so far we’ve only seen it on an Intel platform-showcase and hardly on any real retail products. When available, expect this to be primarily implemented in larger laptops with beefier cooling, able to sustain that maximum power envelope of roughly 28W in sustained loads.

Tiger Lake laptops – the complete list

With these out of the way, let’s get to those detailed lists of available Tiger Lake laptops. We’ve split the reminding of this article into two sections: portable thin-and-light models with 14-inch or smaller screens, and full-size laptops with 15+ inch screens.

And here’s the second part that includes full-size 15 and 17-inch laptops.

Given how the Tiger Lake platform is greatly dependent on the thermal module and can be implemented in a couple of different power envelopes, there’s a good chance most of these full-size devices will outperform the more compact options in demanding loads and games, especially in the more premium designs.

There’s no way to tell without going through reviews for each of the models than end-up on your shopping list, though, and we’ve linked our more detailed articles where available.

We’re constantly updating this list of Intel 11th-gen Tiger Lake laptops and adding up new launches. Nonetheless, we’re a small team and there’s still a fair chance we’re going to miss some, so if you spot any device that should be in here and is not, please get in touch in the comments section down below so we can add it in.

With that kind mind, that wraps up this list of Tiger Lake ultrabooks and notebooks. Hopefully, this has helped you narrow down your options, and don’t forget that more details are available in our detailed reviews and buying guides.

    Are you going to make a review about the Asus B9400?

    • Andrei Girbea

      December 4, 2020 at 10:15 am

      I'm not yet working on it, but most likely yes, around January

    so the successor of the intel i7-10750H processor is the i7-1185G7?? Am I right?

    • Andrei Girbea

      December 5, 2020 at 1:28 pm

      No, the 1185G7 is the new top-tier Core U model. The next-gen Core H (10750H successor) is only scheduled for next year

    I'm looking forward to MSI Modern 15. I saw reviews from Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. I hope u can test it out soon :)

    oh. this means a U processor (i7-1185G7) can be paired with a gtx-1650??? if that's true that would be awesome!

    • Andrei Girbea

      December 5, 2020 at 2:07 pm

      yes, that was also possible before. careful that some of those 1650/Ti chips might be max-q, read into the reviews for more details on the kind of performance you should expect.

    Recently got the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon here in my country. It's an i5-1135G7 with Xe graphics and 16GB of RAM. It's only clamshell and non-touch screen though but screen can go up to 180 degrees. Haven't tested it much but battery life is around 2-3 hours from 60% on normal usage like web browsing. Rather warm internal temperatures during those times too averaging 57C maximum spike of 74C. On idle when plugged in it's around 47C with an ambient temperature of around 35C. It's definitely light and thin that I'm quite scared about it's durability. Only one thing I didn't like is Lenovo didn't give us a USB docking station as all of its USB ports are Type C.

      Thanks for the feedback. You could get extended warranty if you fear about long-term reliability, but the lightweight chassis shouldn't be an issue as long as you handle the laptop with care.

      As for the docking stations, there are quite a few USB-C docks these days. USB-C is pretty much the norm these days on thin and light laptops, hard to accept at first, but something I think most can get used to after a couple of days.

    Yeah I'm really being extra careful with it since it's so light and I'm used to lugging my Legion 5i around. It just bums me out that other regions got a docking station for free although Lenovo has an ongoing promo on select laptops which includes this model that comes with some freebies (Jacket, Backpack, Yoga ANC headset and presenter mouse)on top of 3 years premium warranty and 2 years accidental protection so I guess it's good enough. I'll try doing some Cinebench R20 and probably a couple of games too, see how well the i5 and its Xe graphics will perform and how its ultra thin chassis will handle it.

    • Andrei Girbea

      December 10, 2020 at 6:07 pm

      Idk about those freebies, but the extra warranty included by default is sure appreciated. If you have the time, please come back with more feedback once you get to run Cinebench and those games, I'm interested and it should help other readers, especially since it might be a while since I would personally get my hands on the laptop. It's not even available here yet.

    All Tiger lake reviews don't use the latest Intel 27.20.100.9030 graphics driver and do no represent the real performance of the Intel integrated Xe GPU.

    So I decided to run Cinebench R20 on my Lenovo Slim 7i Carbon i5-1135g7 16GB RAM. I got a score of 1840 points, lower than existing reviews of Lenovo 7i and 9i with the same CPU where they got more than 2000 points. Single core though was at 579 points, matching the aforementioned two devices. At the multicore test, it managed to sustain a 40w 3.8Ghz boost for about 20 seconds, until its temperatures hit 94C forcing the chip to clock lower at around 2.8Ghz on 22w for the duration of the test. No games as of yet since I still don't have a dock to transfer games on and my third world internet speed will take a long time to download one haha.
    Anyway the tests were done on extreme performance enabled via Lenovo Vantage

    • Andrei Girbea

      22W is not bad for a device of this size. That takes a toll on Cinebench multi-core, but the performance seems solid for daily use.

    Thoughts on the ux325ea i5-1135g7?

    Can be purchased for £849 in the UK at the moment

    • Andrei Girbea

      December 27, 2020 at 6:16 pm

      Curently finishing up on the UX325EA, but you can find our review of the previous UX325JA model for some thoughts on why I would rather get the UX425 instead, if that's an option.

  13. James

    December 27, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    Went ahead and bought the 325EA whilst it was on offer at Amazon for £849.

    Will see how it holds out. Initial impressions are good though.

    Few things i'll need to adapt to such as the keyboard layout etc, but they're minor issues that i'll soon overcome :)

    Look forward to your review.

    FYI – I5 11th Gen – 8GB RAM – 512GB SSD. – It's not going to be used for heavy loads as such. Web browsing, emails etc.

    • Andrei Girbea

      December 27, 2020 at 6:25 pm

      Sry for the late reply on your previous comment, let me know how you feel about the smaller keyboard layout, which is my major complaint about this series.

  14. James Bennett

    December 27, 2020 at 7:02 pm

    The keyboard doesn't seem to be causing me an issue as such really?

    I don't have the chunkiest of hands, more twig like if anything, so the keys feel okay. I think once muscle memory kicks in too it shouldn't be an issue!

    What would really help to narrow down the options is to have a column whether it has usable (aka "full-size") arrow keys, although it appears to be "No" for all of the options.
