A leaked slide suggests Intel has stuck to its word and will deliver a 5.3GHz Comet Lake H processor next week—but will it have any tangible impact on gaming performance? I’m just as up for an eight-core/16-thread Core i9 10980HK as much as the next person, but when you stack it up next to the similarly specced Core i9 9980HK, rated to near-enough identical clocks, it’s hard to get all that excited about Intel’s latest H-series chips.

A slide claimed to be from Intel’s marketing material and posted to Twitter (via VideoCardz) suggests that Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake processors—the high-end ones with 45W TDPs for gaming laptops, at least—will reach new heights when it comes to clock speeds. The Core i9 10980HK is set to enter the market as the top chip for this generation, fit with a 2.4GHz base clock and 5.3GHz Thermal Velocity Boost clock across its eight cores.
