[Comparison] Intel Core i7-11600H vs Intel Core i7-10750H – an expected result

Probably the most popular CPU in the gaming laptop world, the Core i7-10750H can be found in a laptop from every brand essentially. While the Comet Lake H CPUs weren’t on par with their Zen 2 counterparts, they still offered reliable power and were fantastic for gaming, with their single-core performance being as good as always.

Today we are comparing the Core i7-11600H and the i7-10750H, to see how much is the difference in computing power between the two and if picking a slightly older laptop is the correct play, depending on your needs. Both CPUs bring similar specifications, with them having a 6/12-layout, with the older i7 having a boost clock of 5.00GHz, which will be a treat to see if a laptop manages to pull it off.

CPU benchmarks

It wasn’t a surprise that the newer CPU with the newer architecture comes out on top. The Core i7-11600H is 22% faster in 3D Rendering and has a lead of more than a second in Photoshop.

Results are from the Cinebench R23 CPU test (the higher the score, the better)

All in all, the Core i7-10750H is outmatched both in 3D and 2D Rendering. However, this was expected, as we are comparing two similarly specced CPUs, of which one has a superior architecture. After all, the Core i7-11600H offers 50% more cache, higher Base clock, and is built on a smaller node. Still, laptops with the Core i7-10750H should be considered, as their price is going down, and they still offer very good performance. Also, if you’re looking for a gaming laptop and you’re on a budget, you can look for a laptop with the Turing GPUs and Comet Lake H CPUs, which are cheaper with the arrival of Ampere and Tiger Lake. Even a combo of Comet Lake and Ampere can be found in many notebooks.
