While there have been prior rumors of the launch of the latest Intel Tiger Lake-H Core processors in the first quarter of 2021. But, with the sudden launch, it is likely that these processors might be coming sooner than expected.
According to the reports, it is likely that ASUS does have a few new devices planned with their Tiger Lake-H series and the same is going to feature at least two gaming laptops, according to the new leaked previously.
The listing further stated that ASUS is likely going to come out with at least two TUF gaming devices and one ZenBook variant equipped with Intel’s Core i7-11370H Tiger Lake CPU. The three models that are expected to launch include:
- ASUS TUF Gaming FX516PM-I716512W0T
- ASUS TUF Gaming FX516PR-HN002T
- ASUS Zenbook UX564PH
Amidst these three, only the first device is going to feature the NVIDIA RTX 3060 GPU. The graphics processor for the remaining two devices haven’t been listed yet. According to beliefs, it is likely that they could feature some entry-level GPUs or even depend on Intel Iris Xe graphics, if the requirement pops up.
Furthermore, there have not been further updates concerning the Intel Core i7-11370H processor. But, the processor is likely going to feature 8 cores and 16 threads. This configuration is similar to the available Zen 3 based Ryzen processors.
Additionally, the chipset is also going to be based on the 10nm Willow cove cores that provide enhanced performance and higher mobility like never before.
Aside from that, the listing also includes the price range of these new devices. The new ASUS Zenbook is priced at 1420.76 euros. The remaining TUF gaming devices are likely going to be priced at 1399.47 euros.
The listing further clarifies that the new TUF gaming laptop will likely feature a 15.6” FHD display with 1080p screen resolution and 512GB SSD for storage and 16GB RAM for memory options. As for the color variant, it is currently available in white but a black variant of the device is likely going to be available soon.
If the dates are to be believed, these new launches from ASUS with the Intel Tiger Lake-H processors will likely coincide with the devices featuring AMD’s Cezanne-H-based Ryzen 5000H laptops that are expected to be launched around the same time.
