10th gen Intel Core H Series laptop processor features

Intel proudly promotes its 10th gen H Series laptop CPUs for surpassing the 5 GHz threshold. It's a big deal - 5 GHz+ frequencies were once thought impossible in a chip that runs within the tight confines of a mobile PC. But there's more to these next-level chips than speed. Several additional H Series performance features aim to help you extract maximum computing power from your system:

  • Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0: Finds your CPU's fastest cores and directs your most critical workloads there, which Intel says optimizes performance on lightly threaded tasks.
  • Intel Speed Optimizer: A one-click overclocking4 feature built into the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel XTU) to leverage available thermal and power headroom for better multi-thread performance.
  • Intel Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB):5 Automatically boosts clock speed by up to 200 MHz when CPU temperature is low enough and turbo power is available (supported on all 10th Gen mobile H-series Core i7, Core i9, and Intel Xeon® processors).
  • Intel Adaptix™ Dynamic Tuning: A software toolkit that helps get the most from 10th Gen mobile Core CPUs by dynamically adjusting processor power based on the current status of critical variables like temperature, fan speed, usage mode, processor state, etc.

And don’t forget: Intel works with 200+ independent software vendors (ISVs) to ensure that its new 10th gen Core laptops support today's most popular software. Engineering and design programs, business tools, AAA video games - there a 10th gen Intel laptop CPU (i3 to i9) that can do it.
