Intel's FINALLY delivered us a high powered CPU on 10nm and it's real fast... but I have some problems with their marketing.

    Aviram IancoviciAviram Iancovici6 napja
    • Thermal throttling is typical in any laptop processor, but changing the thermal paste and undervolting can significantly reduce temperatures, power consumption and get higher clockspeeds for the same voltages. If you have the i7-10875H, you are fine. AMD still has problems with power limits and Ryzen Master support for undervolting and better perfomance while reducing temps and power consumption.

  • I was that only real knowledgeable sales employee, when Linus mentioned sales employees, at the Costco Electronics department before getting promoted to Corporate IT. I watched Linus Reviews on laptops that we sell and I did do tests on them to make sure our members weren't getting screwed. And I would flat out tell some members that ones that were a waste of money are shit/trash. I was blunt but returns have never been lower. uwu And people would come back and only buy from me when it came to tech after a while. For context I run my own miniature costume made google cloud and website for it. And its speeds are better than real google. Would be even faster if I can afford the Honey Badger that Linus uses and 10 gig Fiber from the ISP.

  • When you talked about "laying down the law" and not letting partners put an i9 or i7 in a laptop that can't cool it, I immediately thought of Apple when you complained about doing exactly this very thing those years ago. You even made the point then that other companies were doing it too, which just goes to show that this has been a problem for awhile, and the industry really needs to address this problem.

  • Soooo 11 gen 11800h or 11980hk? On the same laptop. Debating on which one to get on my alienware x17 when more options are available on June 15. Only option ATM is 11980hk and if it's not performing at that price hike I'd rather just get the 11800h

    Kai IchinoseKai Ichinose16 napja
    • @Star masterc true that. And that's if the 11850h is available on the x17. We shall find out in a few hours when alienware releases the other spec options. Still hoping for a qhd panel on the x17 but I doubt it.

      Kai IchinoseKai Ichinose4 napja
    • @Kai Ichinose Get more perfomance for free with undervolt. 11850H has slightly higher boost than 11800H. It's impossible to put the 11980HK in a ultrabook or very light laptop since the TDP is 65 watts (???) .

      Star mastercStar masterc4 napja
    • @Star masterc that's if the 11850h is an option. The 11980hk is nice but probably not worth it over the 11850h or 11800h as they are all over clockable. I figure for the laptop the 11800h or 11850h will be slightly better thermals and uses less power. From what I've seen thin and lights haven't been able to really use the 11980hk to its full potential. But who's knows lol.

      Kai IchinoseKai Ichinose4 napja
    • 11850H is slightly better than 11800H. i9-11980HK would be a desktop replacement.

  • Can these CPUs be “locked” at a lower than ideal TDP in different laptops? I’ve read about the performance of these new TGL-H CPUs at different wattage and was wondering if you could accidentally buy a laptop that has its CPU set lower because the manufacturer wanted a thin and cool design? Or are physical thermals or software/bios settings the only thing that can force these CPUs to perform below their best?
