The 9th generation Intel Core processors have been known since October. Then the i9-9900K became the first commercial processor to reach the 5GHz mark. With the announcement of this generation in the mobility segment, Intel brings the i9-9980HK, which also achieves this mark.
The big star of the presentation is the i9-9980HK. However, Intel has announced five more not-so-powerful solutions for various types of users. These will be on several Asus, Lenovo or Razer laptops that made a point of announcing their mobility proposals. gaming also yesterday.
What are the specifications of the 9980HK?
In terms of speed, we are talking about a 2.4GHz base. In boost, as we mentioned, can reach 5GHz. Thanks to Intel's Hyperthreading technology, we were able to have two threads per core. This results in this particular case in 8 cores and 16 threads.
For those who do not need to make the call overclocking, you can always opt for the 9980H, which can achieve an impressive 4.8GHz. Looking around the line, we come to the most modest i5-9300H. It can reach 4.1GHz and has eight threads divided by four cores.
How fast are these processors anyway?
The numbers are from Intel. The tops offer an 18% improvement over framerates in the Hitman 2 game against last year's model (the 8950HK). When we talk about video editing, it is 28% faster than the previous model.
For those looking to play, share what they play (streaming) and record yourself, this also proves to be a major upgrade. Intel claims that in the Black Ops 4 game it offers framerates twice as fast, which is a significant increase over the previous year.
Ultimately, these will be the processors included in the gaming laptops that we'll see in the market soon. The processor is not the most important when choosing a device gaming. Still, for the hardcore gamers who also share what they play, these numbers can only be good news.
