Thanks to Thermal Velocity Boost technology, Intel’s 10th Gen Core i9-10980KH – its Comet Lake-H mobile flagship processor – will be capable of hitting clocks as high as 5.3 GHz. The claim was made in a leaked graphic, which also confirms 8 cores and 16 threads.
As explained by Intel, Thermal Velocity Boost is a technology that can drive standard boost clocks even higher by “opportunistically and automatically increas[ing] core frequency whenever processor temperature and turbo budget allows.” This implies that the i9-10980KH will only hit 5.3 GHz in very specific situations.
According to an advertisement posted by IT Home, Intel will launch its Comet Lake-H processors and notebooks on April 2nd. These will feature NVIDIA’s new SUPER mobile SKUs, which comprise the RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER, RTX 2060 SUPER, GTX 1660 SUPER, and GTX 1650 Ti/SUPER.
