Intel released the i7-10710U processor last year, which has a maximum frequency of 4.7 GHz. In Q2 2020, they released the i7-10810U with 6 cores and 12 threads, just like its predecessor, but has a better maximum frequency of 4.9 GHz.
Media outlet NoteBookCheck has stated that the i7-10810U has been used in a Dell Latitude 9510 test. They also said that this Dell model does not fully optimize the i7-10810U.
However, the i7-10810U performs better than the i7-10710U in the Cinebench R20multi-core test.
The i7-10810U Cinebench R20 multi-core score of Dell Latitude 9510 is 2344, which exceeds the average score of i7-10710U (2123) by 10%.
Sources state that this processor will be equipped with some high-performance businesses, and significant security features in addition to the already extraordinary turbo frequency.
What is the ‘maximum frequency’ of a processor?
The frequency of a processor specifies the operating frequency of the CPU core(s) – It is measured in MHz. Generally, the higher the frequency, the faster the processor will be. It is also recorded as the “clock speed” of a CPU.
The world record on the highest clock speed is 8722.78 MHz (approx. 8.5 GHz).
Somewhere around 3 GHz, the power used to raise clock speed increases extremely. Ordinarily, 1.5 GHz CPUs can run on a smartphone while most 3-4 GHz CPUs can’t even be run on laptops.
