What is with Intel and their weird names?


24 months 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
