Mobile Coffee Lake CPU Scores Rear Their Head on Geekbench

Intel is gearing up towards launching their mobile CPU solutions based on the current desktop architecture, Coffee Lake. These mobile CPUs will bring Intel's increased core and thread counts philosophy to the mobile crowds, thus increasing overall performance due to the extra two cores and four threads on the top of the line processors.

The CPU that was benchmarked on Geekbench is the i7-8750H, a six-core, twelve-thread CPU with a 2.2 GHz base clock and up to 4.1 GHz Turbo speeds. Its L3 cache department makes do with a pretty respectable 9 MB, and all of this is wrapped in a 45 W TDP package. As it comes to scores, these show expected gains over Intel's previous generation Kaby Lake Core i7-7700HQ - around 20% in single-thread workloads, and a more impressive 50% boost in multi-threaded ones. Two Quanta systems based on the i7-8750H managed single-thread scores of 4700 and 5008, and multi-threaded marks of 17,504 and 20,715. A HP system using the same chip scored 4980 in the single-thread test and 19,402 in the multi-thread benchmark. All in all, impressive gains in the processing prowess department, though these are overwhelmingly derived from the extra cores and threads, and not from some spectacular microarchitecture improvements.

Mobile chips are getting really good. With the current RAM and GPU prices, laptops start to be a really good choice for PC gaming tbh.

So "up to 4.1 GHz Turbo" basically means in most laptops you will be lucky to get a sustainable 3GHz?

Sustained 3Ghz with 6 cores 12 threads in a laptop is still a beast, if the manufacturers put on some decent cooling.

No, Intel only guarantees a sustainable all-core 2.2GHz. And the highest possible sustainable all-core should be around like 3.8-3.9GHz. Your milage may vary anywhere between those values, depending on your system's cooling capability.

6C/12T, 9MB L3 & 45W TDP package is VERY competitive. 4.1 on all cores under Turbo is also a feat, so long u have really good cooling. Laptops that are super-thin (ala Nvidia Max-Q design) with this chip might clock around 3.6, which is still impressive.
