Lenovo and Asus laptops featured in online product listings with i7-9750H processors
Websites for online computer hardware retailers have started publishing lists of upcoming products that will include an Intel Core i7-9750H CPU. The 9th Gen Core processor series from Intel has four tiers, from the top i9 chips to the bottom i3 offerings. The whole mobile range is targeted for high-end notebooks, and it seems some retailers are already preparing for the new CPUs.
A French retailer has a considerable list of 17 Asus products that all count the i7-9750H as part of their composition. The laptops range in price from 1,430 Euros (~US$1,604) up to just over 3,100 Euros (~US$3,478) depending on the configuration. Members of the ROG family will be getting the Coffee-Lake-H upgrade, and there are numerous Turing-based graphics cards options too, including the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (another confirmation of the mobile variant) and the power-saving GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU.
Another retailer is preparing for at least eight laptop models from Lenovo that will sport the 9th Gen i7-9750H processor. The list in this case includes devices from the manufacturer’s Legion range that consists of high-performance gaming laptops. Prices range from US$1,059.99 to US$1,929.99 but only the RAM and storage amount options are currently shown, although it’s likely Nvidia’s Turing cards will also be part of the package for some of the notebooks.
There’s still a little bit of uncertainty surrounding the details of the i7-9750H. For instance, it was expected that it would feature eight cores and eight threads and be able to clock at up to 4.5 GHz. However, a recent 3DMark leak listed the 9th Gen chip as having six cores (and possibly 12 threads) with a boost clock of 4.29 GHz. Regardless of the discrepancies, it seems Intel is soon going to deliver a new range of high-performance chips for OEMs and gamers to choose from.
