Intel 9th Gen Core processors for laptops

This line of mobile CPUs are 45-watt, 14nm processors. The star of the new H-series chips is the 8-core, 16-thread CPU which is the Core i9-9980HK. This series are also the first mobile chips that Intel released under it's 9th Gen branding. Even though they are 9th Gen, they are still based on the Coffee Lake Refresh with 14nm++ architecture from last year's releases.

Whenever there is an announcement for new mobile processors, we can always expect laptop manufacturers to follow suit with their own announcement of new gaming laptops powered by this 9th Gen CPUs.

Although these new laptops will offer new features such as high refresh rate screens or 2.5GB Ethernet, these new features will don't really have much to do with new CPUs. They most likely be just riding the hype of announcement more than anything else.

There will be 6 tiers or CPU models in the H-series which range from the 8 cores/16 threads Core i9-9980HK to the more modest Core i5-9300H which comes with 4 cores/8 threads. 

The full list:

  • Core i9-9980HK - 2.4 GHz - 5.0 GHz, 8 Cores / 16 Threads, 16 MB Smart Cache
  • Core i9-9880H - 2.3 GHz - 4.8 GHz , 8 Cores /16 Threads, 16 MB Smart Cache
  • Core i7-9850H - 2.6 GHz - 4.6 GHz, 6 Cores / 12 Threads, 12 MB Smart Cache
  • Core i7-9750H - 2.6 GHz- 4.5 GHz, 6 Cores / 12 Threads, 12 MB Smart Cache
  • Core i5-9400H - 2.5 GHz - 4.3 GHz, 4 Cores/ 8 Threads, 8 MB Smart Cache
  • Core i5-9300H - 2.4 GHz - 4.1 GHz, 4 Cores/ 8 Threadsm 8 MB Smart Cache

The Core i9-9980HK is the only fully unlocked CPU on this series that can supposedly reached up to 5.0GHz on a single core.

The 9880HK and 9880H will benefit from Intel's Thermal Velocity which means both can have boosted clock speeds according to the thermal situation of the device.
