The Intel Core i7-10875H is a high-performance processor aimed for high-end productivity workload in laptops, including gaming laptops. This Comet Lake H-series processor was launched in the second quarter of 2020. The Core i7-10875H shares similar listed CPU specifications with Core i9-9880H; with clock frequencies ranging from 2.3 GHz base to 4.8 GHz turbo, 16MB Smart Cache, and 45W default TDP; which is similar to the default TDP on the Core i7-10875H which uses similar power consumption components. The TDP can be configured as low as 36W resulting in reduced CPU performance.
The Core i7-10875H is Intel’s 14nm “Comet Lake” processor with eight cores, 16 thread (thanks to hyper-threading support) processor running at up to 4.3 GHz base frequency with Turbo frequency that can be unlocked by adjusting the frequency curve from 4.9GHz to 5.1GHz: which is only achievable with Intel’s Thermal Velocity Boost that offers an extra 0.2GHz when the chip is running below 100oC max CPU temperature.
The Core i7-10875H integrates Intel UHD Graphics 630 iGPU which is supposed to offer similar performance as the UHD630 in the Core i9-9880H and can handle a bit of light gaming and 4K video streaming. The iGPU operates at a base frequency of 350MHZ and a maximum dynamic frequency of 1.2GHz. Other features include 4K support at 60Hz display setting, a dual DDR4-2933 memory controller that can support up to 128GB physical memory, and PCIe 3.0 with a maximum number of 16 lanes. The Core i7-10875H supports the management features vPro, TXT and SIPP.
Summarily, the performance of the Core i7-10875H should be somewhere similar to the performance of Core i9-9880H. When compared to AMD Ryzen 7 4800H which has a more powerful Radeon RX Vega 7 integrated graphics and is built on the modern 7nm TSMC process node, the Core i7-10875H still beats the Ryzen 7 4800H in single-core performance across multiple benchmark CPU tests like GeekBench 5. Furthermore, the Core i7-10875H boasts a 21% higher turbo boost frequency and consumes less power. Overall, the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H outperforms the Core i7-10875H in both multicore performance tests and in power efficiency.
Generally, the Core i7-10875H can comfortably handle most productivity tasks that do not rely heavily on the multi-core performance of the processor. However, if you are among those who heavily rely on multi-core performance, you would better opt for the Core i9-10880H which is also aimed at high-end productivity workloads.
