Alongside the launch of Nvidia’s latest laptop GPUs, Intel is also unveiling the new 10th Gen Core H-series of processors for laptops. The new line-up features the first mobile processor to break the 5GHz barrier, which will help drive higher frame rates in games.
With the 10th Gen H-series of CPUs, Intel continues its mission to bring desktop class performance to laptops. At the top of the pile, you will find the Core i9-10980HK, a fully unlocked processor with 8 cores, 16 threads and up to a 5.3GHz single core turbo speed. The next step down is the Core i7-10875H, which features the same number of cores/threads but has a maximum single core turbo speed of 5.1GHz.
Further down the list, you will find two more 10th Gen Core i7 SKUs with 6C/12T and a 5.1 or 5.0 single core turbo speed. Finally, the H-series 10th Gen Core i5 processors will feature 4 cores and 8 threads, as well as much more tame 4.6GHz and 4.5GHz turbo speeds based on the SKU.
Up against a three year-old PC, Intel’s latest CPUs enable up to a 44% boost in gaming performance. There is also a notable performance bump for productivity too, with Intel’s own test data showing that an Intel 10th Gen Core i7 can export 4K video 70 percent faster.
We are already taking a look at a few laptops with this new hardware under the hood. In fact, you can already take a look at some of Leo’s thoughts in our new coverage of the the MSI G66 Stealth and the ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo.
