Santa Clara, California-based silicon giant Intel today announced a new member of its high-end mobile processor series. Based on the 10th generation of the company’s proprietary chip designs, the Intel Core i9-10980HK is debuting with a claim of being the fastest portable central processing unit in the world.
“Portable,” in this instance, means one intended to be used in battery-powered devices such as laptops, ultrabooks, notebooks, and whatever other buzzword for describing those you can think of. Compared to the previous generation of Intel’s mobile CPUs, the i9-10980HK promises up to 54% more frames per second during 3D games rendering, almost as high of an overall, system-wide improvement to performance, including both processing power and energy efficiency, and up to twice as fast exporting and rendering of video projects in 4K resolutions.
These enchancements are made possible thanks to a record 5.3GHz Turbo functionality covering all eight cores of the i9-10980HK. The CPU also comes with 16 threads, a whopping 16MB cache system enhanced with AI management algorithms, Wi-Fi 6 AX201 support that can potentially nearly triple the speed of your downloads, and Thunderbolt 3 support. Expect the Intel Core i9-10980HK to start debuting in gaming-oriented Windows laptops and workstations in the coming months.
