    If it's a 45W TDP and there is no dGPU that's actually not too difficult to do with some thought behind it.

    I think you misread; I was saying I thought there is no way in hell there's a 33% increase in power efficiency from a simple process tweak on a process that's been tweaked twice already. That kind of leap is seen with a node shrink.

    In other words those two extra cores will cost power, or frequency.

    I've since seen an Intel chart reproduced on chipwiki showing a claimed 26% increased performance for same power or 52% less power for same performance on coffee lake 14nm VS broadwell 14nm at 0.7V, an eyeball estimate on that chart suggests ~35% lower power at same performance of cfl 14nm vs Kabylake 14nm, but that's not at 1.1-1.3V which is where the H chips will end up

    The physics score from that 3dmark would be interesting to know but I can't find it.

    Anyway with the latest Intel roadmap not mentioning Icelake (10nm octocore) at all, maybe we won't see it until next year... Anyway we'll see soon how Cannonlake (low power 10nm) goes as they're releasing soon. But rumours are still that Intel's 10nm is repeating its 14nm history... First gen late and underwhelming. Also there's the specter/meltdown fixes which may have needed some redesign work = delay

    Undervolting and power tweaking can go a long way on mobile chips though, obviously a 6 core sustained loads are going to be troublesome but that's what our desktop series are for.

    Looking forward to the p650 refresh . Or maybe a whole new chassis ?

    The future is bright, that's what they always say ironically. 6 cores are essentially where 4 cores were in the early days of the phenom/q6600 eras. Under utilized and only usually used by prosumers. It'll be a while before non-prosumer products take advantage of these cores.

    Imagine my distress upon seeing that total war Attila only uses 1 CPU core out of 8, having come out in 2015.

    Writing code for proper multi threading is tricky, though not partitioning off at least some aspects to another core is getting quite lazy.
