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.
