Intel Core i5-8300H 8th Gen High-End Quad-Core Laptop Processor

The 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8300H quad-core is among the fastest laptop processors on the market. It’s a cheaper substitute for the even faster i7-8750H with six cores. Both can be usually found in gaming and other high-performance laptops. On the other hand, these 45-Watt chips are power hungry and can run hot, so they require robust cooling systems. Also, they are not battery life-friendly. These are their main disadvantages in comparison to the popular 15-Watt mainstream laptop processors, such as the i5-8250U or i7-8550U.
