Best i5-8300H Laptops: The Processor
Intel is constantly striving to deliver faster and more energy efficient technology in their processors. That is exactly the case in one of their latest releases, the all new Core i5-8300H processor.
The i5-8300H processor is part of the eight generation of Intel processors, dubbed Coffee Lake. Among other things, this generation brings processors of up to 6 cores for laptops, a new thing on Intel (although that is not the case on the i5-8300H).
The i5-8300H is a quad core processor with 8 threads, and has a pretty good benchmark. Its base clock speed is 2.3 GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of 4.0 GHz, which is simply amazing.
When compared to processors from previous generations, we can consider that the i5-8300H is comparable to the i7-7700HQ. However, the i5-8300H has a slight advantage as its max turbo speed is higher than the i7-7700HQ.
While the i5-8300H is not the most powerful gaming processor released by Intel in 2018, it is a good option for some. If you are looking for an affordable laptop, but you don’t want to spend a lot and get one with a i7-8750H processor, the i5-8300H will definitely do the trick. It runs most games released in 2018 with high settings.
