Back in October, Intel announced the ninth-generation of its Core desktop processors, introducing us to one in particular – the Core i9-9900K – that could reach 5GHz boost clock speeds.
Today, Intel is bringing that same kind of capability to its mobile line of processors, launching the 9th-gen H-series.
The Core i9-9980HK leads the charge, once again being capable of hitting 5GHz when using Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost.
It probably shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to hear that the 9980HK is an octa-core processor with 16 threads, being the top of the line H-series offering that it is.
Under normal, non-overclocked circumstances, the 9980HK has a base clock speed of 2.4GHz and it also features 16MB of Intel smart cache.
Intel says that the H-series – not necessarily just the 9980HK – will give users “desktop performance on the go,” which, of course, is the dream of these super-powered notebooks.
