    About Intel® Processor Numbers
    https://www.intel.ca/content/www/ca/en/processors/processor-numbers.html
    The processor number is one of several factors, along with processor brand, specific system configurations, and system-level benchmarks, to be considered when choosing the right processor for your computing needs.
    A higher number within a processor class or family generally indicates more features, but it may be more of one and less of another. Once you decide on a specific processor brand and type, compare processor numbers to verify the processor includes the features you are looking for.

    Please keep this on topic, had to move and delete quite a few posts.

    Wait a second... wouldn't the Turbo Frequency mean only 1 core boosts to 4.6 GhZ (for i9-8950HK) and not 'all' cores?
    I mean, from what I understand, the turbo frequency across all cores will be closer to the base clock (if not the same as base), but only 1 core usually boosts to such high frequencies... or have Intel changed something with their new CPU's?

    Intel still use Turbo Boost 2.0 same as before for their mainstream chips. Intel only added the new feature "Thermal Velocity Boost" on top and charged more $$$ for it. Run the chips past 50C degrees and the +boost is gone.

    So, if I understand their boost technology correctly, Intel initially boosts with Turbo Boost 2.0 on 1 core moderately higher vs base, while the Thermal Velocity Boost would essentially push that turbo boost (Again on 1 core) to higher levels temporarily while allowing the CPU to go beyond a specific temperature?

    Again, I am uncertain if this frequency boosting applies to just 1 core, some cores, or all cores?

    In the thinner/hotter systems I can see that being a little self-defeating.

    The 4.8 GHz can only be reached using the "Thermal Velocity Boost" which allows one core to boost to 4.8 GHz (+200 MHz) as long as the CPU temperature is below 50°C. Multiple cores can be boosted +100 MHz below 50°C. Will come on top of Turbo Boost 2.0

    F. eks see boost clocks for 7700K (4.2GHz base clock)

    Not Intel's problem. They have added (cTDP 35-45w) for the i9 mobile chips.

    Under 50C at 4.8GHz at ambient temps of above 25C will need 100% fan speed.
