There is no honor in retreat, there is no glory possible if you cannot even compete on a level playing field, there is no worse damage than that inflicted by your rival when you were celebrating victory. Brief summary of how Intel lost its favorite desktop sector: laptops. But as such and although he doesn’t give up, he doesn’t know how to take the punches and return them. Tiger Lake-H seemed like the solution to the company’s problems, but from a standpoint… The problems are more worrisome than they seem.
Intel Core i9-11950H, are you hiding with your best processor?
The leaks are once again doing their job and this time we have on screen a new processor aimed at the gaming laptop sector that will go straight in to compete with the best from AMD and Apple in both gaming and gaming. general performance.
The new i9-11950H based on the overall architecture of Tiger Lake-H with the main architecture of Willow Cove appeared in Geekbench 5 under one HP G8 ZBook Studio, a 15.6-inch business laptop, which raised doubts.
And is that we are facing an 8-core processor with 16 threads at a base frequency of 2.6 GHz with a Boost of 4.9 GHz. Its L3 cache is 24 MB, incorporates an IMC capable of supporting Dual channel in DDR4-3200 MHz, in addition to the name iGPU Xe The new generation of Intel, that is, we face the best of the business in all aspects and yet …
Very short scores that are far from AMD and Apple
This was revealed by Geekbench leaves a worrying scenario, not Dantesco for now, but as we face the latest in all possible aspects in terms of architecture, node, frequency and CPI scores are not what we expected.
The closest thing to this new Intel i9-11950H is the famous i7-1185G7 quad to eight threads in Willow Cove, so with 100 MHz and more than double the number of cores, we expected much more. And we did it because with 1365 points in Single Core and 6266 points in Multi Core we are far from the 1150 points and 5600 points of its little brother.
For a direct comparison with AMD and Apple, the Ryzen 9 5980HS it reaches around 1540 points and 8225 points and the M1 has 1710 points and 7660 points respectively. So how can this new processor score like this?
In the first place and as we can see, the system was working with a mode called HP Optimized (Modern Standby), which could mean a reduction in the total consumption of the CPU and with it in the frequency. The problem is that there is no official TDP data and we do not know such consumption in the test, so it could just be that this G8 is configured not to exceed a certain frequency and not trigger the temperature, limiting performance.
In any case, we will soon have all the answers, especially the comparison with Apple’s M1, which is currently the fastest in the laptop sector, although with some shortcomings as we know.
