Meet the Intel Core i7-9750H: 2x More Performance than the Core 7700HQ
For starters, let’s go over the new Intel mobile flagship, the Core i9-9750H. This chip although based on the 14nm node, will still pack enough oomph to surpass the 8th gen Core i7-8750H. Compared to the wildly popular i7-7700HQ, the new king of the hill will be almost twice as fast with the same TDP.
The 9750K will go up against AMD’s upcoming Zen+ based mobile flagship, namely the Ryzen 3750H. We expect the Intel chip to be faster than its Ryzen competitor, but aggressive pricing and similar graphics solutions should more than make up for that.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 to Elevate Mainstream Gaming
This leak confirms the existence of the last Turing SKU, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650. It also pegs the VRAM of the card at 4GB (GDDR5) with a base clock of 1395MHz. According to leaked 3D mark figures, it will be 41% and 24% faster than the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti, respectively.
The slides don’t include the whole specs-sheet, although past rumors have given us a solid idea of what to expect. The GeForce GTX 1650 will pack around a thousand CUDA cores and a 128-bit wide bus which translate into almost 3 TFLOPs of single precision performance. The official gaming benchmarks indicate that these portable gaming machines will be aimed at eSports and the Battle Royale genre, offering 75+ FPS across most titles.
As per the marketing materials, this will be an MSI product, the GL63 to be exact. Aside from the Intel Core i7-9750H, and the GeForce GTX 1650, the laptop will have 16GB DDR4 RAM and 512GB of NVMe SSD storage. As expected, the MSI GL63 will sport a 1080p IPC panel display and will also include the option to downgrade the CPU to the Core i5-5300H.
We expect the MSI GL63 to be priced north of a grand ($1000), with AMD’s Ryzen powered products coming in at just $999. The former should offer slighter better performance but at a premium, while the latter highlights team red’s tried and tested strategy of “may not be the fastest, but tis definitely the cheapest”. The launch date of these next-gen gaming laptops hasn’t been confirmed yet, but sources tell us that they’ll hit retail either by the end of this month or the first week of May.
