In Lenovo's new lineup of 2021 ThinkPad X1 series, we already know that they can choose up to 11 generations of Core i7 (vPro) processors.At the same time, Intel officially announced the tiger Lake vPro platform and Evo vPro certification.As a function mainly for enterprise customers, it supports additional security features based on hardware.

For example, vPro can carry out threat detection based on AI, and use hardware shield hardware protection function to prevent blackmail software and mining malware attacks. In addition, there is control flow execution technology to beat back the types of attacks that software solutions cannot cope with.
In addition, the video call performance is improved by 1.52 times, and the video editing speed is also improved by 1.8 times. To sum up, Intel claims that the 11th generation of vPro is the best enterprise application platform.

Compared with the 10 generation vPro, the gap between them is more obvious. AI performance has been improved to 8 times, and video editing speed is 2.3 times that of the previous generation platform.
It should be pointed out that the 10 generation vPro is derived from the comet Lake family of 14nm process, rather than the 10nm ice lake family of consumer level. The latter is integrated with more powerful iris plus display, while the former is only equipped with UHD display.
In addition, tiger Lake family uses Intel's 10nm superfin process, and improves the display performance to a new level through iris Xe. Compared with comet Lake vPro, the improvement of GPU is more significant.
In terms of network, Intel also promised to achieve the biggest improvement in 20 years through Wi Fi 6 / 6e support (wireless network alliance)That's what I said）In addition, the new generation chips also support thunderbolt 4 and PCI e 4.0.
Finally, Intel's 11th generation vPro processor will be the first to enter the thin commercial PC market this month. In addition, the company has launched the evo vPro certification program to ensure the best experience for consumers (such as instant wake-up and ultra long battery life).
Intel expects to have more than 60 11 generation vPro processor notebooks from major OEM manufacturers in 2021.
