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.
Intel Core i5-10300H Benchmark
Unsurprisingly, the Core i5-10300H is near the top of benchmark result charts. It’s still below the 2020 10th Gen i7-10750H, but in line with the 2019 9th Gen Core i7-9750H.
Note: The benchmark scores of the listed processors are averages measured across various devices with these processors. The scores and real-world performance of the i5-10300H and compared CPUs may vary depending on the notebooks' other components, settings, cooling, and other factors. However, the benchmark results are good indicators of the processors' performance.
