I just ordered a 2070/8750H laptop. Was this stupid with 9th Gen CPUs coming?

    If you don’t mind, can you spell out the rationale for that?

    Because your CPU will not bottleneck an RTX 2070. I have that same processor and can play any game at max settings @ FHD resolution.

    Now, surely some games do benefit from more CPU power but they are not a lot and the benefit you would gain would be minimal so if you have a laptop right now then sure, wait, why not but if this is preventing you from buying a laptop right now because you want to wait for the next CPU and have no other *good* laptop to work on. Then bite the bullet right now and stop waiting. Life is too short to be using slow computers ;)

    It's also all but confirmed that the 9th-generation mobile CPUs will follow their desktop counterparts to where only Core i9 SKUs will have hyperthreading. So a hypothetical i7 9750H will have eight cores and that's it. The 8750H could still technically have an advantage in some scenarios because it's six physical cores but has 12 logical cores/threads.

    No, even with a 2080, I don't find the i7 8750H being a bottleneck in any games I tried.

    If the 9th gen equivalent is an 8 core CPU, it will likely run at a lower frequency to deal with the extra heat.

    Intel ain't stupid. They know unlocked Core i9 SKU's can't be used in all types Jokebooks. Of course they will offer partial locked i9 with HT for the thinnest models. Same with Core i5. + Call second best partial H locked chips i9 instead for i7 is a Joke.

    For base clocks, Yeah. We will see more and more of crippled T-Boost that can't hold over longer time under sustained load. Aka more and more for short Burst load.

    We will see more of this Scam...
    The Core i9 clock cycles go up. Who cares where they come down ...

    In terms of game compatibility you get the nost time compared to how new the gpu is.

    So you got the 2070 new the 8 series old.

    Way more time than the 2070 old and the 9th series new. That machine will be out of date sooner.

    Technically marginally more up to date today .
    So wait for a new gpu
