Ninth-Gen Core H-Series Brings 5 GHz Speeds To Laptops

At the top of the new ninth-generation Intel Core H-series family is the Core i9-9980HK, which is the company's first i9 processor to bring a 5 GHz turbo clock speed, eight cores and 16 threads, and support for 16 megabytes of Intel Smart Cache to a laptop. The i9-9980HK is the only unlocked processor in the new line.

The company said the processors — which go all the way down to the four-core i5-9300H with a 4.1 GHz turbo clock speed — provide up to a 33 percent overall performance improvement over a three-year-old laptop running a sixth-generation Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor. They also provide a 28 percent increase in responsiveness when compared to the same three-year-old system.

The new processors come with support for Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 to enable gigabit wireless speeds, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity and Intel Optane memory technology. Other features include Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel's integrated graphics technology.
