Intel Core i5-11300H
The Core i5-11300H is a 4 core CPU from Intel released in 2021. This chip has a very good overall score at 40% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is a very good processor for gaming, with a score of 67%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the Core i5-11300H scores 33% and 31% respectively. Indeed, this is a good rating for very heavy workloads.
The Core i5-11300H has 4 cores and 8 threads. This CPU makes use of simultaneous multithreading technology to improve performance on parallel tasks. Each physical CPU core is divided into multiple logical processors.
As for memory, the Core i5-11300H makes use of DDR4-3200 memory. The faster the memory, the better. Faster memory means that the CPU doesn't have to wait to get the data it needs. It can accommodate a maximum of 64 GiB of memory. Furthermore, this chip can handle up to 2 channels of RAM, a multichannel memory architecture allows for higher data transfer between the CPU and the memory. However, to take advantage of this, you must have enough memory slots filled. Error correcting memory is not supported on this processor.
Power and thermals for the Intel Core i5-11300H CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 35 watts. This measures the amount of heat the processor produces when running at full load. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's good estimate.
