Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake-H laptop gaming processors are on the verge of launch this month and we have some leaks of this upcoming CPU. Already the last gen’s Intel Core i9-9980HK is already a powerful processor if it’s cooled appropriately.
The Core i9-9980HK score 28,625 points in Geekbench 4.4 that puts it on par with the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, whereas, the Core i9-9880H outperformed its HK sibling, scoring 29,077 points in the same benchmark.
The Intel Core i9-10980HK is a high-end gaming processor for laptops with eight cores based on the Comet Lake architecture. This 8-core CPU clocks at between 3.1 and 5 GHz and can execute up to sixteen threads along with 12 MB L3 cache with 45 W TDP.
Intel’s upcoming Core i9-10980HK appears to perform 10% better in multi-core than its predecessor, hitting 5.27 GHz on Geekbench while the Core i9-9980HK maxes out at 5.0 GHz. Additionally, the Core i9-10980HK has a 3.1 GHz base clock which is a 700 MHz increase over the previous Core i9-9980HK.
In the benchmark, we see the CPU scoring over 30,000 which is pretty impressive for a laptop CPU honestly and is competing with the HEDT CPU – AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2970WX.
AMD Ryzen 7 4800H is also on par with Intel’s Core i7-10750H & Core i9-9980HK but it will interesting to see how it competes with the latest flagship Core i9-10980HK CPU.
