It has not been officially released yet, but already specs of the Core i7-8720HQ are coming out, and they look promising.
It shows much promise as the CPU can be used both on mobile laptops or tiny desktops.
|CPU||Cores||Base Freq.||Boost Freq.||TDP||Graphics|
|i7-8720HQ||6C/12T||2.4 GHz||3.6 GHz||45W||??|
|i7-7700HQ||4C/8T||2.8 GHz||3.8 GHz||45W||HD Graphics 630|
Someone, on another site, noted that it might be called Core i7-8720HH, since the Q stands for quad, and this would be a hexa-core.
There are complaints that it has a lower single core speed than a i7-7700HQ, and so this is not that much of an upgrade. Another disappointment is that all six cores will drop to 2.9GHz if all of them are turbo-boosting.
2,9ghz turbo across all cores. Defo a downgrade on most applications. Not excited about this. Time to get a 7700hq laptop on sale right now before christmas 🙂
These CPUs will not be officially released until early 2018. We can hardly wait.
