Disclosures:

GHz:

*Maximum processor frequency with Intel Turbo Boost 2.0.

Optane memory:

*As measured by Intel in the following common laptop use cases:
(1) a series of Iometer tests at QD1 and QD2 with drives at 50% prefill. Tests were composed of various combinations of sequential and random read and write scenarios, designed to approximate real-world client PC usage based on Intel research, in both single and mixed modes with span size 8GB.
(2) a collection of benchmarks and real-world workloads with drives at 50% prefill including PCMark 10 Benchmark (App Startup), PCMark 8 Benchmark: storage bandwidth test, presentation launch, email launch, document launch, web browser launch, and selected games.

Intel Optane memory H10 with solid state storage (1TB QLC NAND+32GB Optane memory media) is compared against components from Samsung 970 EVO Plus, Corsair MP510, Western Digital Black SN750, Toshiba XG6, XPG Gammix S11 Pro, and SanDisk Extreme Pro (all 1TB capacity).

System config: (1) Storage driver: Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) driver 17.5.2.1024 for H10; Microsoft in-box NVMe driver for all others. Intel Core i7-10510U configuration: CPU (PL1=15W TDP, 6C8T, Turbo up to 4.7GHz), Intel UHD Graphics 620, 2x4GB DDR4. OS: Windows 10 RS5 Version 1809, Build 18362.175, MCU B4. (2) Intel Core i7-1065G7 configuration: CPU (PL1=15W TDP, 4C8T, Turbo up to 3.9GHz), Intel Iris™ Plus Graphics, 2x4GB DDR4. OS: Windows 10 RS5 Version 1809, Build 18362.30, MCU B4.

Results: Intel Optane memory H10 with solid state storage prevails in the majority of tests listed above based on measurements or estimates.

Testing by Intel as of October 3, 2019, and may not reflect all publicly available security updates. No product can be absolutely secure.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more complete information about performance and benchmark results, visit intel.com/benchmarks.

Certain results have been estimated or simulated using internal Intel analysis or architecture simulation or modeling, and provided to you for informational purposes. Any differences in your system hardware, software or configuration may affect your actual performance.

High performance:

*As compared to laptops powered by Intel ultra-low powered processors.

Overclocking:

*Altering clock frequency or voltage may damage or reduce the useful life of the processor or other system components and may reduce system stability and performance. Product warranties may not apply if the processor is operated beyond its specifications. Check with the manufacturers of system and components for additional details.
