The i9-9980HK is well over two years old as of September 2021. Might as well seek out the newer i9-11980HK for the ultimate performance. Not saying that this particular i9 is bad, but the newer mobile i9s are just so much faster than their predecessors. Compared to the i9-9900K, the i9-9980HK is just 10% slower on average, but remember the TDP of the i9-9980HK is lower than that of the i9-9900K, resulting in slightly decreased performance. Other than that, there's not a big difference between the desktop i9-9900K and the i9-9980HK.

As strong as i9 9900k and use less power


Good

2 years 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.

Same performance as i7-10750H. But could do better on multi-tasking.


Excellent

2 years ago.

Versatile CPU that can handle complex, multi-threaded projects and can be tweaked to run as fast as any laptop out there on the market.
