Intel Comet Lake-H Core i7-10750H and Core i5-10300H pay a visit to PassMark — seem to offer nearly 40% and 17% gains over their predecessors, respectively

Intel's upcoming 45W 10th gen Comet Lake-H processors, the Core i7-10750H and the Core i5-10300H, have surfaced on the PassMark benchmarking site. The Core i7-10750H seems to offer a nearly 40% performance boost when compared to its predecessor, the Core i7-9750H. The gains brought forth by the Core i5-10300H are comparatively modest when compared to the Core i5-9300H.

Intel is expected to launch the 10th gen 45W Comet Lake-H sometime in April so it is natural we get to see a few leaks in the run-up to the launch. The latest leak comes in the form of a PassMark benchmark, which shows good gains for the 10th gen CPUs — the Core i7-10750H and the Core i5-10300H.

According to PassMark's CPU Mark results unearthed by @_rogame on Twitter, the Core i7-10750H scores 16,137 points and trails behind the Core i9-9980HK (17,438 points). However, the Core i7-10750H offers a nearly 40% improvement over its predecessor, the Core i7-9750H (11,617 points). 

Similarly, the quad-core Core i5-10300H manages to score 9,501 points in CPU Mark. This is a relatively modest uptick in score (~17%) when compared with the Core i5-9300H, which scores 8,125 points in the same test. 

The 40% performance increase with the 10750H when compared with the 9750H is interesting given that the only major difference between these CPUs is a 200 MHz boost clock in the former. It remains to be seen if Intel has implemented any under-the-hood changes that we aren't aware of yet. Support for faster memory or a more roomy chassis in the test laptop could be contributing factors as well.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
