Intel announces 10th-gen mobile processors with over 5GHz Turbo clock speeds

After teasing it at CES this year, Intel today finally detailed its 10th-generation H-series processors. These are the 45W chips that you'd find in gaming laptops, mobile workstations, and creator laptops. They're from the Comet Lake family, and Intel is promising desktop-level performance.

The big deal is that they're the first mobile processors to have Turbo clock speeds of over 5GHz, and moreover, two-thirds of the new SKUs offer just that. The CPUs offer all of the perks that you'd normally expect from Intel's latest CPUs as well, such as Wi-Fi 6, Thunderbolt 3 support, Optane memory H10, and more. They also gain support for DDR4-2933 memory.

At the top of the lineup is the Core i9-10980HK, an octa-core processor with 16 threads that's unlocked for overclocking. It has a 2.4GHz base clock speed with a 5.3GHz Turbo clock speed. Heading down the chain, there's also now an octa-core Core i7, which is the Core i7-10875H that has a 5.1GHz Turbo clock speed.

There are two other Core i7 models, the Core i7-10850H and Core i7-10750H, both of which are hexa-core with 12 threads. They both max out at 5.1GHz and 5GHz, respectively, but the Core i7-10850H is partially unlocked.

At the end of the lineup, there's the Core i5-10400H and Core i5-10300H, both of which are still quad-core with eight threads.

These are powerful processors, and you'll be able to get your hands on them soon. MSI, Lenovo, and others are already announcing new hardware with the new CPUs, and they'll be available this month.
