It is the tenth generation yet to be introduced by Intel, already became a benchmark as listed in Geekbench. The upcoming i9-10980HK seemingly based on Comet Lake micro-architecture. It is a predecessor of Core i9-9980HK.
Specifications of Intel Core i9-10980HK:
The previous Core i9-9980HK contains Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 45W. Comparatively, rumors have confirmed that the upcoming Core will perform even better due to the increase in core count. However, in the previous edition, Core counts were lesser than its predecessor, but its faster speed clock will get it on the fast track.
Comparison between AMD Ryzen 7 4800H, Ryzen 9 4900H, and Intel Core i9-10890HK:
Both the Ryzen family’s upcoming edition has rumored that their APUs will operate under the limit of 45W, which means they will be competing Intel Core’s new predecessor.
Intel Core has stood at 6,321 and 32,038 at the 4rth Geekbench list while testing single as well as multi-core analysis. On the other hand, Ryzen family displaying results for single and multi-core analysis as 5, 228 for the former while 31, 614 for the latter.
It shows that Intel Core is leading by 20.9% in single-thread performance while showing merely 1.3% of a difference in multi-threaded performance. Unfortunately, neither Intel Core nor Ryzen family has announced their upcoming edition. Therefore this review is based on the projections comprising upon the Geekbench’ database.
