Amazing Mobile Performance
The first mobile Intel® processor with up to 6-cores and 12 threads, featuring the new Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB) technology and a fully unlocked K-series SKU.
Uncompromising Gaming and VR
New levels of single, multi-threaded, and mega-tasking performance for the latest AAA games and VR. Experience faster game load with Intel® Optane™ technology, and faster wireless than gigabit Ethernet with Intel® Wireless-AC 2x2 160 MHz.
Next-Level Content Creation
Intel’s most powerful mobile platform for creators enables faster 4K video editing and faster media content loading from large HDD data drives with Intel® Optane™ memory.
Remove the burden of multiple cables and get one compact port that does it all - power your PC, transfer data, and connect with dual 4K UHD displays.
Learn about Thunderbolt™ 3 technology
Eliminating bottlenecks requires better storage memory that is fast, inexpensive, and non-volatile. With Intel® Optane™ technology, you can unleash the power of your processor instead of it working at a fraction of it.
Unleash the power of your processor
Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB)
Intel® Thermal Velocity Boost (Intel® TVB) is a new feature supported on Intel® Core™ i9-8950HK processor. It opportunistically and automatically increases clock frequency above single-core and multi-core Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 frequencies based on how much the processor is operating below its maximum temperature. The frequency gain and duration is dependent on the workload, capabilities of the processor and the processor cooling solution. For processors that have Intel® TVB enabled, the maximum Core Frequency is achieved while the processor is at a temperature of 50°C or lower and turbo power budget is available. Frequencies may reduce over time as processor temperature increases.
