Intel 10th generation mobile processor Turbo 5.3GHz! Claims to offer "desktop" performance

Time:2020-04-03Popularity: Author: raodeng


Intel yesterday officially released the 10th generation Core mobile processor series (mainly used in notebook computers), codenamed "Comet Lake H", said to improve overall performance by 44%. This series of processors continue to use the 14nm process, with a maximum frequency of 5.3GHz, which has surpassed the 5.0GHz of the current desktop-end Intel 9900K processor.


This is also the first time that mobile processors have broken through 5GHz. Intel said Comet Lake H-series processors will bring "desktop" performance to notebooks. At present, the top i9-10980HK in the series has the same number of cores and highest frequency as the top desktop processor 9900K.


Intel also specifically emphasized that the multi-core and multi-threaded blessing will significantly increase the productivity of Comet Lake H series processors, and its 4K video rendering speed will double. Productivity has been Intel's short board, AMD's strengths, and the launch of Comet Lake H series has further enhanced the overall competitiveness of Intel's mobile processors.

AMD also released its latest generation of Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors three days ago. It is made using TSMC 7nm process and has the same 8 cores and 16 threads, but the highest frequency is 4.4GHz.

The top-of-the-line Ryzen 9 4900HS in this series has significantly surpassed Intel ’s ninth-generation mobile processor i9-9980HK in single-core and multi-core performance. One of the most important concerns of the moment.



Mobile processor breaks through 5GHz for the first time

Comet Lake H series is currently the first mobile processor with the highest frequency exceeding 5 GHz. Because AMD uses a more advanced 7nm process, it has a leading edge in single-core IPC performance. Because Intel still uses the 14nm process that has been used for many years, it can only make breakthroughs at the highest frequency.


Intel's current 10nm plan has been postponed, and end products have failed to land. They said that 10nm is actually not their ideal process technology. They will accelerate the implementation of 7nm technology and catch up with the development of the world's top technology as soon as possible.

However, in terms of game performance, the single-core new frequency is still the most important parameter. The high frequency of Intel processors will become a major advantage for it to continue to consolidate the game market. The new generation Comet Lake H processor is said to increase the average frame rate of games by up to 54%.

Many mainstream applications and games are not optimized for multi-core, so single-core performance is also the main criterion for judging processor performance.

Intel's "Turbo Boost" automatic turbo technology has been introduced for many years, allowing ordinary users to obtain higher performance in the default state of use. This time Intel Turbo Boost technology iterates to version 3.0 and is fully applied in mobile processors, which can automatically i9-10980HK only 2.4GHz basic frequency to single core 5.3GHz.


Paired with NVIDIA's new graphics card, the game console has landed

In addition to the performance of the processor itself, its peripheral support functions have been further improved. In terms of memory, the Comet Lake H series supports a maximum memory frequency of 2933MHz, the previous generation was 2666MHz, and supports Optane memory settings (a method unique to Intel to increase the memory data transfer rate). Support for WiFi 6 and Thunderbolt 3 will be retained.


According to foreign media reports, Intel's 10th generation mobile processors will be launched at the same time as Nvidia's latest "SUPER" series graphics cards. The cost of game books will be further reduced, and consumers can spend the same money for better performance.

Intel has released benchmark results for some games, but it is interesting that Intel compared it to the seventh-generation processor three years ago. The performance gap is naturally not small, close to 50%. This one-hand operation can't help but wonder how much the latest generation of processors can improve compared to the previous generation?


Intel also showed that games launched in cooperation with Razer, Hewlett-Packard, Asus, Lenovo, MSI and other companies. This product has won many heavyweight design awards, and has already been scheduled for sale.
