Intel 10-gen H chips for gaming laptops are here, surpass 5GHz clock speed

Ivan, 02 April 2020

Just two days after AMD showed off its Ryzen 4000 series chips for laptops, Intel has made its 10th gen H chips for high-end gaming and content-creation laptops official.

These new i5, i7 and i9 chips are of the Comet Lake family and are built on the 14nm++ process (and not the 10nm Ice Lake, nor the 10nm+ Tiger Lake). They are all 45W and have 4 to 8 cores with double the threads.

The 10th gen Intel i7 and i9 H chips are the first mobile chips to surpass 5GHz boost clock, which is their biggest advantage over AMD's new Ryzen 4000-H chips - high-frequency cores are helpful in both gaming and applications that rely on single-threaded performance.

Intel uses what it calls Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), which will boost the frequency by 200MHz if the CPU temperature is 65°C/149°F or lower.

Intel has already unveiled and deployed its U and Y series 10th gen chips to various devices (like the new Apple MacBook Air). These H series chips will also have intergrated Wi-Fi 6 support as well as Thunderbolt 3 support.

The new 10th gen H series chips will make their way to laptops from ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI and others in the coming weeks.

I'm still buying Intel-based laptops because they're very reliable. You broke boys can stick to AMD for all I care lol.

because AMD wasn't good and now it is and you will see next gen laptops supporting AMD as the 4900H is more power effecient and makes less heat than I7 9750H and even competing with some i9 laptops in a 14inch thin laptop. That's why AMD is now bet...
