I currently have this CPU with an RTX 3060 (Laptop version) and it performs extremely well, they are an extremely good pair with no real bottleneck issues. However, it's probably better to know the full specifications of the laptop I have this on before deciding: Modified Dell G15 5511 - UK version - i7-11800H - Intel UHD Graphics - Jasper Lake 32EU (integrated) - 64GB DDR4 RAM (3200MHz, dual-channel) - Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 (Laptop GPU - discrete) - Intel WiFi 6 AX201 160MHz - PM991a NVME Samsung 1024GB SSD (1TB) This laptop works wonders and performs great! The i7 pushes extreme performance - more than I expected, and will never be the bottleneck of a machine (as long as you pair a GPU up to an RTX 3060, maybe a 3060Ti). If one is maxed out, the other will be too. This i7 also suits normal everyday work. With snappy responses and very much capable of multitasking, this i7 will be an office worker's wet dream. Or just anyone in general. This CPU reaches a score of 22693 (using the Passmark Performance Test) - absolutely blowing most CPUs out of the water. Would I recommend this CPU? Yes, absolutely.

Pros

  • Speedy performance
  • Snappy response times
  • Pairs great with GPUs up to an RTX3060s
  • Has 16 threads. Yes, 16! (8 cores)
  • Large cache storage
  • Virtualisation support
  • Will never fall behind
  • No fall in power saving mode
  • Passmark score of a 22693

Cons

  • Heats up a lot - It caps at 100*C
  • Consumes a rather bit of power
  • Will barely reach over 4.20GHz
  • Thermal throttling is likely

J'avais acheter un pc portable avec ce processeur. Il ne tourné presque jamais. En Gaming il crash, même minecraft il le faisait tourner en 20fps. Alors j'ai acheté un autre pc portable avec un Ryzen 7 5800h et c magnifique. Vraiment je ne vous conseille pas d'acheter un pc portable avec un i7 11800h

Has integrated graphics
Intel Core i7-11800H
Intel Core i9-10980HK
With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
CPU temperature

100°C

100°C

If the CPU exceeds the maximum operating temperature then problems such as random resets can occur.
Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
