8 cores in a laptop: Intel announces improved 45 W 9th Gen H-series Coffee Lake-Refresh processors; Core i9-9980HK posts impressive preliminary performance

Intel has officially announced the 9th generation H-series 45 W processors today with several new features and performance improvements. Leading the stack is the Core i9-9980HK and the Core i9-9980H that sport an 8C/16T configuration with 16 MB L3 cache. The 9980HK is the only unlocked variant and can boost up to 5 GHz thanks to Intel's Thermal Velocity Boost.

Apple MacBook Pro 15 – Core i9 slower than Core i7!

$300 more for less performance | Apple MacBook Pro 15 – Core i9 slower than Core i7!
