Intel calls its 5.3GHz ‘Comet Lake-H’ chip for gaming laptops the ‘fastest mobile processor’
Intelâ€™s 10th-gen â€œComet Lake-Hâ€� mobile processors for gaming laptops aspire to something that, so far, AMDâ€™s Ryzen hasnâ€™t emphasized: pure clock speed. Announced Thursday, Intelâ€™s 10th-gen H-series chips go above 5GHz, a new frequency high for mobile PC processors.
In fact, most of Intelâ€™s six new 14-nm Comet Lake H-series chips top 5GHz, including a â€œstep upâ€� Core i7 chip, the Core i7-10875H (2.3GHz base, 5.1GHz turbo).Â Intel has designed it as a slightly cheaper alternative to the new uber-premium Core i9-10980HK, though both chips include 8 cores and 16 threads. Itâ€™s this new Core i9 that sets a high-water mark for clock speed, cresting at a whopping 5.3GHz.
