Intel Core i7 9850H:

Cinebench R23:

Cinebench R23 (Single-Core) 1197
Cinebench R23 (Multi-Core) 7004

For decent Gaming-Performance, you should make sure you are above 1000 Cinebench R23 Single-Core Points, and this processor just smashed the other chipsets in the new record-breaking scores of Cinebench R23 Single-Core 1197. In 3D rendering the higher the Multi-Core Score. The better the performance you will see. Anything above 20k+ Multi-Core Points will boost the performance and will render complex scenes in less time. And this processor scores 7004. This will also help in gaming. As most of you will know that the more the single cores scores are the faster will it open and close the applications. The multicore will also help in rendering and gaming.

Geekbench 5:

Geekbench 5 (Single-Core) 1140
Geekbench 5 (Multi-Core) 5180

Geekbench 5 Test system’s potential for gaming, image processing, and video editing with the Compute Benchmark. This also tests your GPU’s power with support for the CUDA, OpenCL, and Metal APIs. This processor scored the best in the Geekbench 5. This processor also beats some of the latest and most powerful processors with new record-breaking scores of single-core and multi-core performance. The single-core scores are 1140, and the multi-core scores are 5180. As you guys know. The higher the Geekbench 5 score the higher performance of the processor. Geekbench 5 score that is twice as high will mean the processor is twice as powerful. Ranking of single-core processors by Geekbench 5 score performance worldwide 2022.



Vendor Intel
Released May 11, 2021
Type Laptop
instruction set x86-64
Codename Tiger Lake H45
Model number i5-11500H
Socket BGA-1787
Integrated GPU UHD Graphics for 11th Gen (32 EU)

Intel Core i7 9850H is a Laptop processor produced by Intel. This processor supports the socket BGA-1787. This processor has 6 cores and 12 threads. The base clock frequency of the Intel Core i7 9850H is 2900 MHz, but with the new Turbo Boost technology, it can go up to 4600MHz. The size of the L3 cache is whapping 30 MB. This chip has also integrated graphics UHD Graphics for 11th Gen (32 EU). The instruction set architecture is based on x64 and can support x86. As the x64 will make more bandwidth then this x64 will be the best choice. This processor can be more powerful if you chose the right motherboard for it. Because this processor can be overclocked. But I would say no to overclocking because 4.6GHz is enough for today’s gaming and editing. This processor is so fast that it can beat some of the most powerful and latest processors. This processor also has some of the most amazing speeds.


Cores 6
Threads 12
Base Frequency 2.4-2.9 GHz
Turbo Boost Frequency 4.6 GHz
Bus frequency 100 MHz
Multiplier 24-29x
Bus Bandwidth 8 GT/s
L1 Cache 96K (per core)
L2 Cache 1280K (per core)
L3 Cache 12MB (shared)
Unlocked Multiplier No

This chipset has 6 cores and 12 threads with a base clock of 2.9GHz and, a boost clock of 4.6GHz. The bus frequency is 100MHz. which will help PCI lanes in terms of performance. This processor is also unlocked with a multiplier of 29x. This will help in overclocking this processor with the right amount of power consumption. This processor has the fastest L1, L2, and L3 cache memories. The L1 cache memory is 96K per core which means 6 cores have their L1 cache memories. The L2 cache memory is 14MB but it’s shared with the Ram. The L3 cache memory is also 12MB which is also shared with the system. If you are looking for the best value processor, then this Intel Core i7 9850H is the best choice. In terms of gaming, this processor performs very great with good compatibility with the Nvidia GPU and with the AMD GPU. In terms of video editing and graphics rendering this processor also shows the best performance. Because of its base clock of 2.9GHz and the boost clock of 4.6GHz.

Power Consumption:

Fabrication process 10 nm
TDP 35-45 W
Max. temperature 100°C

This processor is based on 10Nm process fabrication. The TDP shows 45W of power consumption. This processor can also be overclocked. So you can increase the voltage in the motherboard interface if the motherboard supports the unlocked processors. The most amazing fact about this processor is that the max temperature support of this processor is 100C which is awesome. You can play games as long as you want and this will not affect the speeds or any thermal throttling issues if you have a good CPU cooler or water cooler. Sometimes when this processor takes a bunch of loaded applications then the processor increases the speeds of each core to the needs. This increases power consumption, thus making the CPU hotter.

Integrated GPU:

Integrated Graphics Intel UHD Graphics for 11th Gen (32 EU)
GPU Base Clock 350 MHz
GPU Boost Clock 1450 MHz
Shading Units 256
TMUs 16
ROPs 8
Execution Units 32
TGP 15 W

Unlike the AMD Ryzen processor,s this processor also has integrated Graphics. Intel Core i7 9850H has 256 shading units with a base clock of 350MHz and a boost clock of 1450MHz. there are also 16 TMUs and 8 ROPs which will help in a performance increase. There are also 32 Execution units. The TGP shows only 15W of power consumption. What basically TMUs are, are texture mapping unit components in modern graphics processing units. It helps in rotating, resizing, etc. ROPs or (Raster operation pipelines) are the rendering output unit. This processor also has a powerful enough GPU that you can play some games on it like Call Of Duty Modern warfare 1, 2, 3, etc. the boost clock will help to stabilize the FPS in games.

Ram support:

Memory types DDR4-3200
Memory Size 128 GB
Max. Memory Channels 2
Max. Memory Bandwidth 51.2 GB/s
ECC Support No

Intel Core i7 9850H can support the DDR4 with 3200MHz. the max memory support of this Intel Core i7 9850H is 128GB. The max memory channel support is also 2. The max memory bandwidth is also 51.2 GB/s which is incredibly fast compared to AMD. There is no ECC support on this Intel Core i7 9850H.

Gaming Experience:

This processor is a good option for gamers. Considering its capabilities, it performs well in almost any situation like editing, gaming, rendering, streaming, etc. So if you are looking for a processor under $600 then I highly recommend to by this processor because it doesn’t have any alternatives. You got 12 cores, 12 threads, and a boost clock of 4.6GHz. This will play every game at high FPS with a good combination of Graphics card and Ram. You will see no issues in the performance unless there is a bottleneck. So to avoid that, I will make complete another article on the best compatible Ram, storage, and GPU for this chipset. Just let me know in the comment.

So, this was my review of the Intel Core i7 9850H. If you guys learned something new then make sure to check out my other articles in the review, as well as my YouTube channel.

  1. I am trying to upgrade my Dell Precision 7540 (i7-9850H) to 3200 speed memory. Your article and others suggest that the i7-9850H can support 3200 speed RAM. The Dell specification guide says that the Precision 7540 supports 3200. However, the intel website says the processor supports up to 2666. So is this mainly a BIOS and motherboard thing? I just ordered it and want to see if it works.
