The Intel Core i5-10300H is a high-performance mobile processor launched in the second quarter of 2020. The Core i5-10300H comes with four integrated cores that can process eight threads at a time, because of hyper-threading support. The cores are clocked at a base frequency of 2.5 GHz and a turbo boost frequency of 4.5GHz.
The processor also comes with an integrated 10th Gen Intel UHD Graphics which purportedly offers similar performance to Intel’s UHD630 in Core i5-9300H. This GPU operates at a base frequency of 350MHz and a maximum GPU frequency of up to 1.05GHz and can comfortably handle both light games or heavy games and other heavy tasks. It also features 4K support at 60Hz display support which is crucial when performing image-editing tasks or enables one to get a good experience when streaming videos.
The chip’s die is based on the Comet Lake H architecture featuring 8MB L3 Smart cache memory per core with a relatively good cache hit rate. It also features a dual DDR4-2933 memory channel that can access up to 128GB of memory along with a PCIe 3.0 connection with a maximum number of 16 lanes. All these provide a significant performance boost when performing both simple and heavy workloads on your device.
Furthermore, this processor is manufactured using Intel’s old 14nm processing technology which offers near a good performance and power efficiency per Wattage. The Core i5-10300H is designed to offer high (optimal) performance under 45W TDP (Thermal Design Power). Instinctively, it’s clear the chip was intended for big laptops, including high-performance gaming laptops. However, the default TDP can be configured as low as 35W to offer desired performance depending on the user’s preference.
In terms of performance, the Core i5-10300H show some key major advantages over some of its major advantages that make it valuable in both single and multithreaded tasks. For example, when compared to Core i5-9300H, the Core i5-10300H apart from being newer, has a 10% higher turbo frequency and scores higher in single-core and multi-core performance tests according to GeekBench 5 and Passmark benchmark tests.
