Moving on, its rival – the high-end Intel Core i7-7920HQ is part of Intel’s Kaby Lake generation. Manufactured through a 14 nm process, it features 4 cores and 8 threads. The processor runs at a high operating frequency of 3.1 – 4.1 GHz (when four cores are active the Turbo Boost frequency decreases to 3.7 GHz or 3.9 GHz for two active cores). Other noteworthy specifications include Hyper-Threading, 8MB L3 cache (256KB L1 and 1024KB L2 cache), a dual-channel DDR4-2400 or DDR3L-2133/1600 memory controller and a TDP of 45W including the integrated GPU which is the Intel HD Graphics 630 once again.

You can check out the full specs of the Intel Core i9-8950HK and the Intel Core i7-7920HQ.
