New Core i7, i9 Processors Push 5 GHz Boost Speeds

When Intel announced its ninth-generation Core H-Series mobile processors would push boost clock speeds to 5 GHz in 2019, it marked a new level of performance, but it was something that customers could only get in the most expensive model, the Core i9-9980HK.

Now with the 10th-generation Core H-Series a year later, Intel is bringing 5 GHz boost clock speeds to a broader spectrum of customers. Out of the six processors in the new H-Series, four of them will feature single-core turbo frequencies of up to 5 GHz, three of which are Core i7 models.

But even with the two sub-5 GHz Core i5 processors at the bottom of the stack, they are still faster than the 4.4 GHz max boost clock of AMD's new flagship Ryzen 9 4900H mobile processor. At the same time, however, AMD's Ryzen 4000 H-Series parts have higher base block speeds than Intel's H-Series.

These high clock speeds make the processors well-suited for most computer games, including popular esports titles, and frequency-dependent content creation workloads like photo editing, according to Hamberger, Intel's general manager of premium and gaming laptops.

The complete Comet Lake H lineup is as follows: Core i9-10980HK (2.4 GHz base clock, 5.3 GHz turbo clock, eight cores, 16 threads, 16 MB cache), Core i7-10875H (2.3 GHz base, 5.1 GHz turbo, eight cores, 16 threads, 16 MB cache), Core i7-10850H (2.7 base, 5.1 turbo, six cores, 12 threads, 12 MB cache), Core i7-10750H (2.6 GHz base, 5 GHz turbo, six cores, 12 threads, 12 MB cache), Core i5-10400H (2.6 GHz base, 4.6 GHz turbo, four cores, eight threads, 8 MB cache), and Core i5-10300H (2.5 GHz base, 4.5 GHz turbo, four cores, eight threads, 8 MB cache). All of them have a 45-watt thermal design power.
