New benchmark results have been leaked that appear to show the power of the upcoming Intel Core i9-10980HK, and if they are accurate, Intel is building an incredibly powerful mobile processor that could transform gaming laptops.
As part of the highly anticipated 10th Gen Intel Comet Lake-H processors, the Intel Core i9-10980HK will apparently ship with eight cores and 16 threads, along with a 45W TDP and 3.10 base clock. GHz, which is a marked improvement over the 2.4 GHz. Intel Core i9-9980HK, which the chips should replace.
It’s also said to hit a 5GHz boost clock, and in a new leak from Geekbench benchmarks, it looks like the Intel Core i9-10980HK is actually reaching speeds of 5.27GHz – an incredibly high number. high for a laptop processor. If these results (which have been shared on Twitter by @TUM_APISAK) are accurate, the chip would be the fastest gaming laptop processor ever.
Transforming gaming laptops
The supposed power of the Intel Core i9-10980HK could make any high-end gaming laptop that uses it an incredibly powerful machine, and particularly adept at multitasking. It’s basically about bringing desktop performance to a laptop, and the potential of that is really, really exciting.
The leaked credentials suggest a single-core score of 6,321 and a multi-core score of 32,038. As @TUM_APISAK points out on Twitter, the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor, a high-end chip from the big rival of Intel, scored 5,228 respectively. and 31,614 points in the same tests.
Actual performance will be different and AMD’s chip (like all of its AMD Ryzen 4000 series processors) is based on its 7nm process and the new Zen 2 architecture, while Intel’s chip is based on a 14nm process. nm and older architecture. However, these results apparently suggest that Intel will retain its crown when it comes to laptop processor performance.
With AMD’s recent successes, this is welcome news for Intel, and we look forward to seeing gaming laptops emerge with this kind of firepower in the near future.
