Almost as faster or maybe faster than the i7-8700. Mobile beats Desktop for once. Good job, Intel! YOU'RE DOING GOOD!

As strong as i9 9900k and use less power


Good

2 months ago.

Being the strongest laptop CPU currently, this 8 core/16 thread monster mobile CPU delivers nearly similar performance as the desktop i9-9900K while probably generating less heat and consuming less power thanks to lower base clock and lower TDP. Edit : wrong core/thread count, i'm not concentrating properly at the writing of this.
