We have a total of up to eight physical cores reaching a bar of up to 5.3 GHz, so it is clear that the desktop Comet Lake-S really achieve at least the same beat and maybe Intel will offer higher, but we will see.

According to the basic specifications, it really hasn't changed much, and in the case of the hi-end Core i9-10980HK, only that we have two DDR4 speeds faster and the maximum clock rate increased by 300 MHz thanks to Thermal Velocity Boost support. It is not a few, but as a result it is only an increase of 6 percent, and only ideally and a moderate burden. The base remained at the same 2.4 GHz, but it is true that real clocks will stick somewhere in between, and it can be the fundamental difference between the old and new model. But it will also depend very much on what the computer manufacturer allows.
Comet Lake-H are just tuned versions of previous generation processors, but we didn't expect anything else. In addition, we learn that Thermal Velocity Boost will offer processors running at such high cycles only if the “optimal temperature” is maintained, which is to mean values below 50 ° C. Thus, it will depend heavily on the cooling capabilities of laptops, and it is very possible that in the smaller and subtle ones there will be virtually no change from the older models.
The standard Turbo Boost 3.0 / 2.0 frequencies are 200 MHz lower than the table, and we learn that the 10980HK will offer a 4.4 GHz turbo for all cores and that many new models have a configurable TDP with a maximum of 65W and peak power ( PL2) is up to 135 W.
It is remarkable how the roles of AMD and Intel have changed over the past years in the sense that AMD mobile processors can no longer be considered weak and voracious. Black took over excessive consumption of Intel, which is trying to keep up with the competition.
