    Intel's 15W Whiskey Lake-U Core i7 processors turbo to 4.5GHz

    And there are already product listings of laptops featuring these processors.

    Made to look good on spec sheets, IMO, not in the real world. Why ask for a 15w TDP just to get a chip which aggressively boosts way up to 4.5GHz and overwhelms system cooling? I can feel fingers burning on notebook chassis from here.

    Damn straight. One minute you're opening Visual Studio, the next your crotch is on fire.

    15w, hardly crotch burning...

    Registered just to say this. It will be very much crotch burning. I use a 15W Kaby Lake MacBook Pro and under heavy loads it goes well over 90 degrees Celsius. At that point the metal exterior becomes too hot to touch unless you like the idea of burning your hands. And that CPU isn't even close to this in terms of specs.

    Re: Intel's 15W Whiskey Lake-U Core i7 processors turbo to 4.5GHz

    I find it hard to believe that pushing this thing to it's limits will keep to that exact TDP profile. Especially with Intel, TDP is nothing but a rough estimate. Lets see how these chips run under load.

    Estimate? An outright fib that even VW would be ashamed of more like it. I get that you want to be able to push past the TDP *briefly* to get short bursts of work done but that's very fast even for a single core. But hey, Intel's idea of trying hard has always been to factory overclock things even to the point of recall (I'm looking at you 1GHz PIII )

    90° is less than the rated max temp though
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    "double-digit performance gains" - Translation... barely 10.000% improvement then... higher clock speed again... as you were... same old crap from Intel for the past 10 years.
