Intel Core i5-10300H (10th Gen) High-End Laptop Processor

The 10th Generation Intel Core i5-10300H is a processor commonly used in high-performance laptops for gaming and other heavy tasks. The quad-core Intel Core i5-10300H belongs to the 2020 Intel Core H processor lineup, just like the more popular and faster six-core i7-10750H. They are 45-Watt chips, as opposed to the 15-Watt Intel Core U and G series you can typically find in mainstream laptops. The higher wattage means a greater power consumption and hotter operation. But, performance is generally better than with the 15W chips, especially during tasks that require constantly high processor load, such as hard-core gameplays or video file exports from video editing programs.

AMD also has contenders in the same high-performance arena, including the AMD Ryzen 5 4600H which is a direct competitor of the i5-10300H.

As for graphics processing which is important for 3D game rendering, the Intel Core i5-10300H features the Intel UHD graphics processor. It’s a basic one, without potential to run smoothly the latest demanding game titles. But, that isn’t of a big importance, since laptops with the Core i5-10300H come with full-blown dedicated graphics cards anyway.
