What is with Intel and their weird names?


3 years ago.

Expensive, powerful, and hot CPU for laptop. Able to perform almost like a desktop. Strongest mobile CPU for 2020. 8C 16T with base clock of 2,4Ghz, turbo up to 5.3Ghz (You won't get a full 5.3Ghz though) will give mobile the desktop powers. If meant for gaming, i7-10750 or i7-10850 would be better choice.

Its great, but there's no point of buying this in a thin and light laptop. It will truly be at home only in a beefy laptop with a highly efficient cooling solution that can run it stock at 4.7 GHz on all cores, not to mention, overclocking it.

It gives you desktop performance especially with overclocking

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
