Intel debuted two new 11th-gen Intel Core mobile U-series processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics -- i7-1195G7 and i5-1155G7 -- that are built for what they called "thin-and-light" laptops.

These two processors are the first 5.0 GHz in the U-series and "accelerate the number of designs with Intel Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+)." The company plans to build more than 60 new consumer designs using the two new processors and almost 250 OEM designs based on 11th-gen Intel Core.
