Intel's most powerful Tiger Lake-H45 processor appears in the wild

Image Description

Although Intel hasn’t yet launched its 11th-gen Tiger Lake processors, its flagship model, the Core i9-11950H, has made its debut on Geekbench inside an HP ZBook Studio G8 laptop.

The Tiger Lake line of processors is designed specifically for laptops and the Core i9-11950H will help Intel take on AMD's top-end mobile gaming processors, specifically the Ryzen 9 5980HX and the Ryzen 9 5900HX.

However, as Notebookcheck warns, not all that much can be inferred from the processor’s Geekbench score, since it usually takes a handful of different benchmarks with different configurations to present the true picture of a processor’s performance.

As it stands, there is only one listing for the processor on Geekbench, which can’t be used to accurately gauge the actual performance. 

Furthermore, Geekbench notes that the processor was benchmarked while the laptop was running the optimized power plan, which doesn’t put the processor under as much stress as Windows 10's Best Performance mode. 

Spec sheet

While the scores aren’t of much use, the listing does give us a glimpse into the specifications of the upcoming processor.

From the Geekbench listing, it appears the Core i9-11950H will feature eight hyper threaded cores, a base clock of 2.6GHz and a boost clock of 4.9GHz.

Furthermore, the processor features 640 KB of L1 cache, 10 MB of L2 cache and 24 MB of L3 cache. 

Of course, the listing also confirms that HP has a G8 edition of the ZBook Studio in the works.

  • US cracks down on sale of hacking tools to Russia and China

    The US Department of Commerce announced today that it will begin exerting more control over the sale of cybersecurity tools and surveillance software to countries that might pose a national security threat.

    The Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) issued an interim rule with the intention of reigning in the “export, re-export or transfer” of certain items that it believes can be used for malicious cyber activities.

    “These items warrant controls because these tools could be used for surveillance, espionage, or other actions that disrupt, deny or degrade the network or devices on it,” argues the BIS in the rule.

    The SiliconANGLE reports that the department believes such tools can lead to human rights abuses when in the hands of authoritarian governments.

    Not stifling research

    The new rule will take effect in 90 days, and would cover software such as Pegasus, a spyware developed by the Israeli NSO Group, that was recently exposed as being used by certain governments to keep tabs on activists, and journalists.

    With the new rule, any sale of such software and equipment, to countries including China, and Russia, would require a license from the BIS, which will only grant one after thoroughly vetting the end user.

    The Commerce department reportedly argues that the rule has been carefully worded so as to not curb US-based cybersecurity researchers from collaborating with their peers around the world.

    “The Commerce Department’s interim final rule imposing export controls on certain cybersecurity items is an appropriately tailored approach that protects America’s national security against malicious cyber actors while ensuring legitimate cybersecurity activities,” clarified Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo through a statement.

  • Android games are coming to Windows 11 with Google Play

    The Game Awards, hosted by Geoff Keighley, wrapped up last night, and it came with a fair share of surprises.

    Google was one of many companies to appear, announcing that Android apps from the Google Play Games store are coming to both Windows 11 and Windows 10 in 2022.

    This is an effort being made by Google itself. While Microsoft has an agreement with Amazon to host Android apps from the Amazon App Store on the redesigned Microsoft Store in Windows 11, this is a different approach from Google.

    This will be its own app, enabling users with a Google Play account to download their Android games without having to purchase them again. They can also resume where they left off in a game on their Windows device.

    How will the app work?

    Google was light on the details during The Game Awards, but the company did explain to The Verge that this will be available in Windows 10 and above.

    If you’re playing a game on your Pixel 6 Pro for example, and you decide to switch to your Windows device, you can carry on your progress through this new app from Google.

    “Starting in 2022, players will be able to experience their favorite Google Play games on more devices: seamlessly switching between a phone, tablet, Chromebook, and soon, Windows PCs,” Greg Hartrell, Product Director of Games on Android and Google Play explained in a statement. “This Google-built product brings the best of Google Play Games to more laptops and desktops, and we are thrilled to expand our platform for players to enjoy their favorite Android games even more. We’ll have more to share soon!”

    It’s a surprising move, but one that’s always seemed inevitable ever since the Amazon App Store was announced to be coming to the Microsoft Store in Windows 11.


    Analysis: It’s happening sooner than we expected

    We have said before that it would be a matter of time before Google would be interested in bringing Android apps to Windows, but it’s much sooner than we were expecting from the company.

    Granted, this is just games from the Google Play Store for now, but it could be the start of other categories of apps eventually arriving on Windows.

    With Amazon apps already in testing on the Windows Insider developer channel, where you can test out features in development for Windows, it did seem that Google was the odd one out in this partnership. There were already unofficial efforts where you could run your Android apps in Windows 11.

    Google Play Games could make an impact on Windows, but that depends on whether the most popular games will be available. On the Google Play Store, games such as Candy Crush, Coin Master, and Monopoly constantly appear on the charts, so it’ll be important to see these arrive in this new app for Windows.

    It won’t be a stretch to see games such as Minecraft appear on the app as well, as it’s owned by Microsoft, but it does depend on whether developers want their games to appear on the app as well.

    As with other storefronts that users can visit on their Windows devices, such as Steam and Epic Games Store, it may be a challenge to showcase to users what the benefits of having Google Play Games on Windows will be. Some may think it is just another store that will clog up their PC.

    However, being able to resume your progress in Candy Crush may be a tempting feature for some. This effort could encourage Google to not only bring more games to this app but other categories from the Google Play Store in time as well.
