Intel Core i7-9750H 9th Gen Fast Six-Core Laptop Processor

The 9th Generation Intel Core i7-9750H is the most frequently used processor in the 2019 gaming, workstation, and other high-performance laptops. It is also among the most powerful laptop CPUs, thanks to its six-core design with two computing threads per core, maximal clock speed of 4.5 GHz, and 12MB of cache. The processor’s great computing performance comes at a cost of relatively high power consumption of 45 Watts. For comparison, a typical processor for mainstream laptops consumes 15 Watts. So, the i7-9750H requires a good cooling solution, which oftentimes means bulkier laptop chassis designs, and it isn’t optimized for a long battery life. That’s, however, typical for gaming & high-performance laptop processors.

Intel Core i7-9750H Benchmark

Intel Core i7-9750H Benchmark

Benchmarks of the 9th Gen Intel Core i7-9750H clearly show the processor is among the fastest ones. Although even faster laptop processors are available, the i7-9750H is probably the most optimal solution for high-end notebooks when it comes to the price / performance ratio. For gaming & workstation laptop shoppers who want to save money, Intel offers the 9th Gen i5-9300H quad-core, which is also a very decent higher-end laptop CPU. Furthermore, the precursor of the i7-9750H – the 8th Gen i7-8750H, is very close performance-wise to the new version. Therefore, it can be a good CPU choice too, if the laptop with it is offered at a lower price than the same laptop with the i7-9750H.

The Intel Core i7-9750H features the Intel UHD 630 graphics processing unit, which is on the low end when it comes to 3D game rendering performance. But that’s not overly important since most of the laptops with the i7-9750H have full-blown gaming-class dedicated video cards besides the CPU’s UHD 630.

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 Intel Core i7-9750H 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.

  1. Great Processor

    Allen Wiley

    It only pants on the load I place on it so far. Another great product. Time will tell as my Sandy Bridge I5 2540 has run the gauntlet and won after 10 years. If the I7 9750 is like it’s predecessor i5 then we are headed for another 10 years of perfection !
