Six months later, after the presentation of the ninth generation of Intel Core processors for desktop computers , Intel officially presented a similar line of chips for laptops, transformers and other mobile devices. New chips are built on the architecture of Coffee Lake using an improved 14-nm process technology. According to Intel, the average frame rate in games has increased by 56%, and the 4K video editing speed is up 54% compared to models three years ago.
The top solution among the ninth generation of mobile processors from Intel was the eight-core (16 threads) Core i9-9980HK with a base frequency of 2.4 GHz and an increase to 5 GHz in Boost mode. It supports Hyper-Threading technology and the possibility of overclocking out of the box. The value of TDP, as in all new chips, is 45 watts. The amount of cache memory – 16 MB.
According to Intel, the i9-9980HK compared to last year’s 8950HK provides 18% higher fps in the game Hitman 2, and when installing 4K-video, the performance gain is 28%. During the game, streaming and recording video from the screen in Black Ops 4, the new chip provides 2.1 times higher frame rates.
Intel Core i9-9980H is a slightly simplified version of the 9980HK. It differs from the flagship only by the lack of overclocking capability and by the values of the base and Boost frequencies: 2.3 GHz and 4.8 GHz instead of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.
The next in the line are Core i7-9850H and Core i7-9750H – six-core processors with 12 threads and 12 MB of cache. The 9850H is partially unlocked for limited overclocking. The main differences between the chips in the operating frequencies. The junior models in the lineup at the moment are the quad-core Core i5-9400H and Core i5-9300H.
