Intel's most powerful Tiger Lake-H45 processor appears on Geekbench in an HP ZBook Studio G8
The Core i9-11950H has made its way to Geekbench, Intel's flagship Tiger Lake-H45 processor. There is only one listing for the processor at the time of publishing, so we would not recommend drawing too many conclusions from the performance presented. However, the Core i9-11950H should challenge AMD's Ryzen 9 5980HX and Ryzen 9 5900HX APUs.
Additionally, Geekbench states that the processor was benchmarked using an optimised power plan rather than Windows 10's 'Best performance' mode. Hence, the scores shown below probably do not reflect the best of what the Core i9-11950H can do. Nonetheless, the listing does provide an insight into the Core i9-11950H's specifications.
According to Geekbench, the Core i9-11950H has eight cores, supports Hyper-Threading and has 24 MB of L3 cache. The 45 W processor also has 10 MB of L2 cache and 640 KB of L1 cache, matching the Core i9-11900H that has leaked previously. Similarly, Geekbench reports that the Core i9-11950H has a 4.9 GHz boost clock, mirroring the Core i9-11900H again, albeit with a 100 MHz higher base clock at 2.6 GHz.
The listing also confirms that HP has a G8 edition of the ZBook Studio in development. Currently, the company sells the G7 with Comet Lake-H processors and NVIDIA Quadro GPUs, so it would make sense for it to move to Tiger Lake-H45 processors for the G8. The listing describes the ZBook Studio G8 as having a 15.6-inch display too, so we expect the G8 to retain its predecessor's 16:9 aspect ratio. Unfortunately, it is unclear when HP will announce the ZBook Studio G8, nor if it plans to offer the laptop with newer NVIDIA GPUs.
