As expected, Apple today unveiled a refresh of its 27-inch iMac, even though it may not appear at first glance that anything has changed with regards to its outward appearance. Although one change that has been made which is definitely visible – if you select a $500 option – is a new nano-texture matte glass covering for the display, which cuts down on reflections. The big story, however, is under the hood where Apple has upgraded to Intel’s 10th generation Comet Lake-H processors across the board. Customers will have a choice of a 6-core/12-thread 3.1GHz Core i5, 8-core/16-thread 3.8GHz Core i7, or a built-to-order 10-core/20-thread 3.6GHz Core i9. Going along with the... Read more...
Back in December, we took a deep dive with Lenovo's second-generation ThinkPad X1 Extreme. We came away impressed with the machine which was packing a 9th generation Coffee Lake-H processor, GeForce GTX 1650 graphics and a 15.6-inch 4K display.  Lenovo is a company that is always iterating, and now the company is launching the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3, and it's embracing Intel's latest 10th generation Comet Lake-H processors, up to a Core i9 with vPro. Like its predecessor, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3 sports a 15.6-inch display, which is available in Full HD or 4K resolutions. For those that have the money to splurge, the high-end option is a 4K OLED touch panel that is... Read more...
Back in late April, we got an early sneak peek at Hewlett-Packard’s brand new Omen 15 gaming laptop via the company's UK website. Today, HP is making the laptop official, and it will be available in both AMD Ryzen 4000 and 10th generation Intel Comet Lake-H versions. Customers will be able to choose from Ryzen 5 4600H or Ryzen 7 4800H processors from the AMD camp, while Intel offerings include the Core i5-10300H and Core i7-10750H. Up to 32GB of DDR4 memory is supported along with up to a 1TB PCIe SSD (or dual SSDs in RAID-0 if you so choose). On the display front, base systems (Ryzen 5 4600H) come with a 60Hz Full HD display. Ryzen 7 4800H processors come with a faster... Read more...
The last Razer gaming laptop to go under the knife was the Blade Stealth 13, which arrived in April with a 10th generation Intel Ice Lake processor, GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics, and a 120Hz display option. Now, Razer has turned its attention to the top dog Blade Pro 17, which is gaining a wealth of new spec bumps over its predecessor. Kicking things off is the arrival of Intel’s 10th generation Comet Lake-H processors; in this case, the Core i7-10875H. This is an 8-core/16-thread processor with a base clock of 2.3GHz and a maximum turbo clock of 5.1GHz. 16GB of DDR4 memory comes standard, but the system is upgradeable to a maximum of 64GB. For those that want an ultra-fast... Read more...
Earlier this year, Dell gave its popular XPS 13 a full redesign with slimmer InfinityEdge display bezels, 10th Gen Intel Ice Lake processors and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. Since that launch, we've seen leaked images and specs for the XPS 15 and the return of the XPS 17. However today, Dell is getting official with these two new XPS family members that complete the line-up refresh. Starting off with the XPS 15, the specifications for this Dell laptop match the leaked specs that we've seen for the past month. That means that there's a 15.6-inch panel (16:10 aspect ratio) that is available in FHD+ (1920x1200) or 4K UHD+ (3840x2400) resolutions. That panel is backed by either Intel... Read more...
Earlier this month, we got our first look at the 2020 editions of the XPS 15 and XPS 17 laptop, which will be featuring 10thgeneration Intel Core (Comet Lake-H) processors. Today, we’re learning much more information about the two laptops, which look to be two formidable competitors that bracket the current 16-inch Apple MacBook Pro in size. The XPS 15 features a 15.6-inch Infinity Edge display that can be had in either FHD+ (1920x1200) or UHD+ (3840x2400) resolutions (16:10 aspect ratio). Base systems get a Core i5-10400H (4 cores/8 threads, 4.5GHz boost), while flagship models are powered by the Core i9-10885H (8 cores/16 threads, 5.3GHz boost). You can opt for integrated Intel...

Last week, Intel launched its new 10th generation Comet Lake-H mobile processors, which will find their way into new laptops from the likes of Lenovo, Gigabyte, MSI, and ASUS (among others). As you might expect, Dell will also be among the major OEMs to adopt Comet Lake-H processors, and today we’ve got leaked images of three such devices. The first is the XPS 15 9500, which is a complete redesign for the laptop. In the image above, the XPS 15 9500 is pictured at top, with its larger XPS 17 9700 sibling shown at the right -- the new Precision models are shown at the left and at the bottom. The most striking difference, however, is with the display, which is allegedly... Read more...
ASUS is a company that isn't afraid to take design risks with its laptops. That is even more apparent with today's announcement of the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 gaming laptop, which features dual screens (as its name implies). The primary point of focus is on the 15.6-inch display, which is available either as a 300Hz Full HD panel or with an optional 4K 60Hz panel. Neither display supports touch input, which probably isn't that big a deal considering that these laptops are aimed primarily at gamers. The secondary display, called the ROG ScreenPad Plus, is situated above the keyboard and tilts up at a 13-degree angle when the laptop is opened. It measures 14.09 inches diagonally and has a...

Intel first told us about the impending launch of Comet Lake-H mobile processors at CES, and it promised a lineup that would include 8-core/16-thread chips with turbo clocks in excess of 5GHz. Well, the time has come for the official launch of the 14nm Comet Lake-H family, and a number of Intel’s OEM partners are rolling out gaming laptops featuring the processors. Intel’s Comet Lake-H lineup is spread across Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 SKUs. Core i5 SKUs strictly come in 4-core/8-thread configurations with maximum turbo clocks up to 4.6GHz. Core i7 SKUs are available in 6-core/12-thread and 8-core/16-thread configurations with maximum turbo clocks hitting up to 5.1GHz. Finally,... Read more...
When Intel first announced the impending arrival of its Comet Lake-H mobile processors, the company confirmed that there would be SKUs available with 5GHz+ turbo clocks. Those are quite impressive frequencies for mobile processors; especially ones that are built on Intel's venerable 14nm process node. Today, a fresh leak is giving us some insight into just how far these chips will be able to boost their clocks. According to a leaked slide that was posted by momomo_us (and apparently subsequently removed) the maximum turbo clock for these Comet Lake-H processors will be 5.3GHz. That 5.3GHz turbo clock will reportedly be reserved for the flagship Core i9-10980HK, which will feature 8... Read more...
Ready, set...FIGHT! Well, not quite yet, actually—I'm jumping the gun a bit on the next-generation laptop wars that will pit Intel's upcoming Comet Lake-H processors against AMD's Ryzen 4000 series. It's going to be interesting to see how the dust settles. As we wait, the leaked benchmark scene is providing yet another glimpse of what is to come, this time in the form of a presumed ASUS gaming laptop with a Core i9-10880H processor inside. I say "presumed" because even though the laptop is not labeled in the leaked 3DMark entry (fist bump to @_rogame for spotting the entry), the GPU section lists the vendor as ASUS. There are three possibilities (listed here in order of likelihood)... This... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about Intel's Comet Lake-H family of mobile processors in recent months, but only with respect to the chips aimed at the consumer market. Today, however, information is coming down the pipeline regarding Comet Lake-H mobile chis that are part of the Xeon family. In this case, reliable leaker momomo_us has uncovered references to two Xeon processors: the Xeon W-10855M and the Xeon W-10885M. Given the cache configurations of the processors, it's expected that the former will be a 6-core/12-thread design, while the latter will employ 8 cores and 16 threads. Furthermore, the listing suggests that the Xeon W-10855M and Xeon W-10885M will have turbo clocks of... Read more...
We are eagerly awaiting the launch of laptops running's AMD's latest generation mobile Ryzen 4000 series processors, which are built around the company's 7-nanometer Zen 2 CPU architecture. Zen 2 in mobile form is certainly enticing. Will it be worth the wait, though? Some newly leaked benchmarks may provide a partial answer to that question. You may have noticed that we have covered a lot of leaks lately. Twitter user and prominent leaker APISAK has been on fire, and deserves another tip of the the hat for spotting some Geekbench entries supposedly starring AMD's Ryzen 7 4800H mobile CPU. We'll get to those in a moment, but first let's go over the specifications. The Ryzen 7 4800H is AMD's top... Read more...
Intel and AMD are arming themselves with an updated arsenal of mobile CPUs, but which one will win the war? That remains to be seen. As we await the next-gen skirmish, however, more leaked benchmarks have emerged. This time the focus is on Intel's upcoming Comet Lake-H series, and specifically the 10th generation Core i9-10880H. Comet Lake represents another iteration of Intel's 14-nanometer node. Low power models for ultrathin laptops have already launched, including the Core i7-10710U and several others, but we are awaiting more powerful variants, both for the desktop (Comet Lake-S) and beefier laptops (Comet Lake-H). Rumor has it they finally debut in mid-March. Meanwhile, AMD at CES 2020... Read more...
Some powerful gaming laptops are on the horizon. AMD is promising big things from its Ryzen 4000 "Renoir" APUs, and Intel is prepping a lineup of Comet Lake silicon. As it pertains to the latter, a leaked benchmark entry highlights a laptop configuration with a 10th generation Intel Core i9-10980HK Comet Lake-H CPU paired with a GeForce RTX 2080 Super with Max-Q Design. That is a potent combination for sure. Starting with the CPU, the Core i9-10980HK is an unreleased part based on Comet Lake-H (14nm+++). It wields 8 cores and 16 threads with a 3.1GHz base clock and 5GHz boost clock, along with 16MB of L3 cache and a 45W TDP. It sits at the top of the upcoming Comet Lake-H stack. Now here is where...

The wait is on for Intel to launch a round of 10th generation Core processors based on its Comet Lake S architecture, and for its hardware partners to deliver laptops built around its Comet Lake H series. Those are all coming, but if you are wondering when they will arrive, go ahead and circle the middle weeks of March in your calendar. Just be sure to do it in pencil so you can erase it, if need be. To be crystal clear, Intel has not announced a specific launch date—it's only said its OEM partners would deliver Comet lake H laptops soon. When those laptops arrive, the Comet Lake H silicon inside will feature clockspeeds of up to 5GHz and beyond on Core i7, and "even higher clocks on Core... Read more...
Intel is in the midst of refreshing its mobile processor lineup with new 10th generation Comet Lake-H series processors, as revealed at CES 2020 earlier this month. At the time, Intel said laptops sporting Comet Lake-H silicon would be arriving soon. As we await their arrival, an interesting benchmark score has trickled into view, with promising performance in tow. We will get to that in a moment, but first let's take a moment to quickly recap Comet Lake-H. The new processors are still based on Intel's 14nm++ microarchitecture as opposed to 10nm, with TDP ratings of up to 45 watts. These will be available with up to 8 cores and 16 threads. Intel is also promising speeds of 5GHz and higher on... Read more...
Intel stated at CES 2020 that laptops sporting 10th generation Comet Lake-H processors would be shipping soon, including models with speeds hitting (and surpassing) 5GHz. What kind of performance might those laptops bring? Rather than wonder, some leaked benchmark listings on Geekbench provide us some clues. As spotted by Twitter user APISAK, there are three Geekbench listings claiming to represent Intel's Core i9-10980HK processor. Intel has not yet spilled the beans on its entire Comet Lake-H lineup, in terms of models names and specifications. However, the company has said they will ship with up to 8 cores and 16 threads of computing muscle, with 5GHz being achieved on Core i7 and "even higher... Read more...
