Intel Core i7-10870H

The Intel Core i7-10870H is a mobile processor with 8 cores, launched in September 2020. It is part of the Core i7 lineup, using the Comet Lake-H architecture with BGA1440. Thanks to Intel Hyper-Threading the core-count is effectively doubled, to 16 threads. Core i7-10870H has 12MB of L3 cache and operates at 2.2 GHz by default, but can boost up to 5 GHz, depending on the workload. Intel is building the Core i7-10870H on a 14 nm production process, the transistor count is unknown. The multiplier is locked on Core i7-10870H, which limits its overclocking capabilities.
With a TDP of 45 W, the Core i7-10870H consumes typical power levels for a modern PC. Intel’s processor supports DDR4 memory. The highest officially supported memory speed is 2933 MHz, but with overclocking (and the right memory modules) you can go even higher. For communication with other components in the system, Core i7-10870H uses a PCI-Express Gen 3 connection. This processor features the UHD Graphics integrated graphics solution.
Hardware virtualization is available on the Core i7-10870H, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. Additionally, IOMMU virtualization (PCI passthrough) is supported, so that guest virtual machines may directly use host hardware. Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) will run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications. Besides AVX, Intel is including the newer AVX2 standard, too, but not AVX-512.
