Intel Core i5-9300H 9th Gen Higher-End Quad-Core Laptop Processor

The 9th Generation Intel Core i5-9300H is a higher-end processor for laptops. With its four processing cores, two computing threads per core, and a maximal clock speed of 4.1 GHz, the i5-9300H is a good solution for laptops that need a lot of computing power. For instance, gaming- or workstation-type notebooks. The processor’s thermal design power is 45 Watts, as opposed to 15 Watts of processors for ordinary mainstream laptops. Because of that, the i5-9300H needs a good cooling solution which usually requires a bulkier laptop chassis and isn’t among battery life-friendly laptop CPUs.

The Intel Core i5-9300H is near the top of laptop processor benchmark charts. It however lags behind the six-core i7-9750H from the same 9th Gen H-series family. The 9th Gen i5-9300H is only slightly faster than its 8th Gen i5-8300H precursor. It’s not a surprise, because the i5-9300H has only slightly higher clock speeds as the main difference.

The 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9300H features the same Intel UHD 630 integrated graphics you can find in other 9th Gen Intel Core H-processors and also in their 8th Gen counterparts. The Intel UHD 630 is only an entry-level graphics processor, suitable only for the most basic 3D game rendering. But, these H-series Intel Core chips are mostly used in high-performance laptops with gaming-level dedicated video cards, so low performance of the UHD 630 isn’t a big problem. It is primarily used as a power-saving graphics processor in situations when the computing task doesn’t require high GPU power.

    Not a bad CPU at all it just drains your battery really quickly, but the performance is insanely good.
