Almost every PC and laptop runs on the Intel core processors. These processors have been around since the 90s and have undoubtedly shaped the way we use computers today. The processors are used in all types of laptops- be it gaming, productivity or a slim and light laptop, the processors are capable enough to handle anything thrown at it. Now, the latest, 9th generation of the Intel processors is out and soon, it will be used in laptops as well.
On Tuesday, Intel unveiled its new 9th Gen Intel Core mobile H-series processors designed for gamers and creators who want to push their experience to the next level.
Laptops powered by the 9th Gen Intel Core mobile processors will be launched by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo and MSI, starting April 23, as they introduce the most compelling laptops for gaming and content creation. Also, the upcoming Lenovo Legion laptops will also move to these new processors and the laptop grade GTX 16 series.
"Our new 9th Gen platform is designed to delight gamers, creators and performance users by giving them more of what they want.
We are bringing desktop-caliber performance with up to 5 Ghz and 8 cores in a range of thinner systems and new level of connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) so users can game or create where they want," Fredrik Hamberger, General Manager, Premium and Gaming Laptop Segments, Intel, said in a statement.
At the top of the stack is the 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9980HK processor -- the first Core i9 mobile chip with up to 5GHz clock speed and "Thermal Velocity Boost", 8 cores and 16 threads, and support for 16MB of Intel Smart Cache.
The full range of processors include Intel Core i5, i7 and the unlocked Intel Core i9-9980HK for higher performance. In the 9th gen processors for laptops, there seems to be no addition of the budget friendly i3 processor.
The chipset making giant also made additions to the 9th Gen Intel Core desktop processor family.
The 9th Gen Intel Core desktop processor lineup now includes more than 25 products with options ranging from Intel Core i3 to Intel Core i9.
"The family also brings Pentium Gold and Celeron products to market for entry-level computing, giving consumers even more options to find the right desktop to fit their specific need and budgets," the company said. At its core, Intel processors are designed for all types of users depending on their usage.
