Intel's 11th Gen Tiger Lake CPUs are the talk of the town, and Asus is poised to house these buzzworthy processors in its new, upcoming fleet of VivoBook laptops.

According to Intel, Tiger Lake — packed with brand-spankin' new Xe graphics — will provide a “generational leap” in CPU performance, which will reportedly offer industry-leading graphics, more memory bandwidth, higher power efficiency and more. Here are some of the Asus laptops that will feature these highly anticipated processors.

The new VivoBook S laptops will sport up to 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processors with Iris Xe graphics, 16GB of RAM and a large-capacity PCIe SSD with Intel's Optane Memory H10 that offers speedy storage. The VivoBook S-series notebooks also have a diverse set of ports for impressive connectivity options, including Thunderbolt 4.

Asus is launching the newly updated VivoBook S series in a trio of iterations: the 13-inch VivoBook S13 (S333EA), the 14-inch VivoBook S14 (S433EA) and the 15-inch VivoBook S15 (S533EA).

If colors such as Dreamy White, Cobalt Blue and Bespoke Black call to you, grab the VivoBook F513EA model. But if hues such as Hearty Gold, Indie Black and Transparent Silver are more your speed, grab the K413EQ or K513EQ model.

On top of that, if you'd like an easy-to-access number pad on your trackpad for solving quick mathematical equations, the VivoBook 14 is the best fit for you.

And last but not least, Asus is equipping its newly updated 2-in-1 VivoBook Flip 14 with Tiger Lake CPUs. The compact convertible, sporting a 360-hinge, can transform into a number of different orientations, including clamshell mode, tent mode and tablet mode. The VivoBook Flip 14 also supports Asus' stylus for note takers and casual artists who love finagling with digital pens.

We recently reviewed this VivoBook Flip 14's predecessor, which has a lightning-fast AMD Ryzen 4000-series CPU. We can't wait to see how the new Tiger-Lake equipped processors compare to the AMD-packed Flip 14.

Asus' VivoBook S series laptops, VivoBook 14/15 notebooks and the Flip 14 will hit store shelves in October.
