Today, Intel unveiled its latest set of mobile processors that introduced its ninth generation of laptop and tablet architecture. As we saw with the desktop version back in October, it should provide a decent performance boost. The company introduced the first consumer chip to reach 5 GHz, and now it does the same for laptops.
This speedster is the 9980HK flagship capable of ramping up to the 5 GHz speed from a 2.4 GHz base clock. Intel says it can bring "up to 1
It will cost you a nice ear, but considering the manufacturer's recommended price is $ 583. There is also the non-overclockable 9880H, which goes from 2.3 to 4.8 Ghz. Intel copies the (presumably large) laptops that perform these super-powered chips & # 39; Musclebooks. & # 39; Super cheesy, but I'm also a little pregnant.
The more common processors are less exciting. Intel does not add new kernels as it did last year or dramatically changed the architecture. Functionally, the primary modifications support Intel's H10 module Optane memory and Wi-Fi 6 compatibility. The former promises 63 percent faster performance compared to a three-year PC running a traditional SSD, but manufacturers need Intel's memory solution. Meanwhile, if you have a compatible router, Wi-Fi 6 will allow you to transfer data three times faster than 2 × 2 AC Wi-Fi, which is the norm today.
If you purchased a laptop in previous years, there is not much reason to upgrade, but the top of line processors brings laptops closer than ever to desktop performance. Well, unless you actually use desktop hardware, let Dell Alienware a51m. Expect to see these new processors appear in laptops throughout the year.
