Intel launches H-series mobile CPUs that break the 5Ghz barrier

Latest 10th-Gen Intel Core processor family brings desktop-standard power to mobile systems

Intel’s latest 10th-gen mobile CPUs have broken the 5GHz barrier to bring better overall performance, faster 4K video rendering and higher frames per second in gaming, to mobile and portable devices.

Led by the Intel Core i9-10980HK CPU, the latest family of high-performance mobile processors built on the Comet Lake architecture, the range brings high-end desktop-standard power and graphical capabilities to those using more streamlined machines. 

The H-series processors have launched today, with device manufacturers able to fit them into machines slated for release over the course of 2020.

Chip features include Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, which increases the CPU’s frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal headroom, and Hyper-Threading Technology, which delivers two processing threads per physical core.

Integrated Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201, meanwhile, supports nearly three times faster download speeds and boasts low-latency wireless performance, the manufacturer claims.

The high-end i9 processor is packed with eight cores and 16 threads and can reach a maximum of 5.3 GHz Turbo. Compared with a three-year-old system, the CPU delivers 44% overall performance, 54% higher frames per second in gaming, and up to two times faster 4K video rendering and export.

Another CPU released today, the Intel Core i7-10759H with up to 5.0GHz Turbo, offers up to 33% better overall performance, 44% more frames per second in gaming and up to 70% faster 4K video exporting.

The new Intel Core i7-10875H, featuring up to 5.1GHz Turbo, eight cores and 16 threads, makes up the full complement of 10th-gen chips launched for creatives, gamers, and multitaskers who typically rely on high-performance systems but crave mobility.

The chips were engineered in collaboration with notebook manufacturers, with more than 30 thin and light systems fitted with H-series chips launching over the course of this year. These machines include consumer laptops, commercial devices, and workstations.

Intel has also released a batch of devices that can run on the new H-series processors, including the Lenovo Legion, the HP Omen, and the Razer Blade 15.
