The latest mobile processors from Intel have just been announced.

Intel today announced the latest crop of 9th-gen mobile processors that offers a significant performance boost – in fact, Intel is also introducing the first consumer chip for laptops to reach 5 GHz, which is found on the Core i9-9980HK.

Performance is clearly the focus on these new processors. The Core i9-9980HK, for example, can have up to 15 percent fps increase along with 28 percent faster editing on 4K videos in Adobe Premiere Pro. It’ll cost you a little less than $600, but of course, that’s in exchange for performance that will definitely boost up your notebook – or ‘musclebook’ as Intel coins the term.

Other features on the 9th-gen lineup include Wi-Fi 6 compatibility and Intel’s Optane memory H10 module that will give you up to 63 percent faster performance compared to a traditional SSD. Wi-Fi 6 will allow you to enjoy superfast data transfer speeds, but you have to have a compatible router to enjoy it.

“Our new 9th Gen platform is designed to delight gamers, creators and performance users by giving them more of what they want. We are bringing desktop-caliber performance with up to 5 GHz and 8 cores in a range of thinner systems and a new level of connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) so users can game or create where they want,” said Fredrik Hamberger, general manager of the Premium and Gaming Laptop Segments at Intel.

Starting today various notebooks from Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and MSI will have new laptops that will be powered by the 9th-generation Intel Core mobile processors.
