    Which has a more powerful CPU performance IN REALITY, considering the manufacture's configuration and heat throttling.
    The processor comparision is here: http://bit.ly/2nsBLMV, which indicates their scores are kind of close.

    ------------
    I need a powerful CPU and don't need the graphics to withdraw the battery too quickly. Nowadays it's hard to find powerful laptop without a discrete graphics. Finally it narraws down to two models.

    Under sustained load, the i5-8300H will outperform the 8650U because of the 45W power limit over the 15W limit of the U cpu.

    The i5 8300H will score between 800-850cb in Cinebench R15 when the test is looped several times. The i7 8650U will score around ~600cb when Cinebench is run continuously.

    You can get Dell Precision 7530 with i5-8300H/8400H, i7-8750H/8850H, i9-8950HK or Xeon CPU without dGPU.

    Thanks. I'll check it out. I didn't know Dell has these options. But It's a bummer that Precision 7530 has a plastic D cover?

    I'll say, it is better to use i7 processor. it will give you better speed.

    They're essentially the same product with differing clock speeds, both are 4c/8t like the 7700HQ
