Intel Core i7-8750H 8th Gen High-End Six-Core Laptop Processor

The 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H is one of the most powerful processors for laptops. It’s aimed at high-performance and gaming notebook PCs. The Core i7-8750H features six cores with two threads per core, clock speeds of up to 4.1 GHz, and 9MB of cache. The chip brings important improvements over the 7th Gen Intel Core i7-7700HQ counterpart with four cores, up to 3.8 GHz speed, and 8MB cache, while retaining the same power consumption of 45 Watts.

Advantage of the Intel Core i7-8750H over the 7th Gen Core (HQ-series) precursors, its i5-8300H lower-end replacement, and other CPUs in User Benchmark tests is obvious. On the negative side, 45-Watt power consumption doesn’t make the i7-8750H suitable for use in thin notebook models and isn’t battery life-friendly. For that purpose, Intel provides the Core U series processors, like the widely-used i7-8550U or i5-8250U with lower 15-Watt power consumption, cooler operation, and still excellent computing speed. The i7-8750H is typically used in gaming laptops and professional workstations with robust cooling solutions, generally bulkier designs, and overall shorter battery life.

The Intel Core i7-8750H has the Intel UHD 630 graphics built-in. It is a low-end graphics solution. But that doesn’t matter much, because most of the i7-8750H-based laptops have powerful gaming-centric video cards besides the CPU’s UHD 630.
