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

    Gaming Laptop manufacturers need to hop off the thin and light bs and let razer have that niche market. Real gamers will take a plastic chonk with actual good cooling and more IO over thin and light and made of magnesium for a lower price any day of the week. when it boils down to it, a laptop doesn’t need to be thin. It’s just superficial marketing crap. Nobody even offers a chonky laptop with good cooling because of the dumb obsession with thin. FPS>LBS

    indeed, intel CPUs arent the best for laptops, as they produce more heat than the ryzen ones, also if im right, the intels perform worse when both CPUs have the same Wattage caps. meaning ryzen isnt only cooler, its also more effecient at the same powerconsumtion. i mean the 8700k is a desktop cpu, but god damn, even with a nice nzxt case and 6 fans + Dark Rock Pro 4 (with push and pull on the cpu fan) that cpu gets toasting hot while all cores synced and just +100mhz OC (4.8GHz synced) while under full load. that was my last intel cpu for now, i paied 400€ on that cpu and it has no headroom for OC from my point of view. such a joke. intel just lies about their TDPs thats it.

    • Star masterc
      Star masterc

      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.

  • captinalex1

    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.

      Base clock is irrelevant. I'm using an 8 year old i7-4700MQ quad core 45watt TDP processor and always stays around 3.4GHz after some tricks and turbo boost. It's faster than Ryzen 5 3500U released in 2019 (6 years after 4700MQ). I matched the Ryzen 7 1700 in singlethread speed.

    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.

  • Kai Ichinose

    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 Ichinose
      Kai Ichinose

      @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.

    • Star masterc
      Star masterc

      @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 (???) .

    • Kai Ichinose
      Kai Ichinose

      @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.

    • Star masterc
      Star masterc

      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?
