Purpose: to acquaint you with the latest mobile processors; compare the performance of mobile processors; well, and help you decide or make the right choice before buying. At CES 2023, AMD showed the Zen 4 and Zen 3 Plus processors. As before, the HX, H, HS series are productive and U are energy efficient. Intel introduced four families of mobile Core 13th pp. Models HX and H (HS) for gamers, and P and U for thin laptops. This article contains the best laptop processors in 2023. Many models have been provided, and the most interesting thing is that competition has appeared. Remember that the performance of previous generations may be sufficient for you. Especially AMD Ryzen 9 6800HX and Intel Core i9-12900HK.

In comparison with the previous generation, an increase in gaming performance is noticeable. We will look at the general comparison further. Of course, actual test results may vary. Depends on specific configurations, your resolution and optimization.
The Ryzen 7000 processors received a lot of interesting things. For example, operating frequencies up to 5.4 GHz, up to 80 MB of cache, DDR5-5200 memory and 28 PCIe 5.0 lanes. From the new integrated AI engine and iGPU based on the RDNA3 architecture. The chip combines 4 USB 3.2 Gen2 ports (but no USB4).
13th Gen Intel Core laptop processors
Leading the line is the 24-core Core i9-13980HX with 32 threads, a maximum clock speed of up to 5.6 GHz and peak power consumption of 157 watts. 11% faster than last year’s Core i9-12900HK in “single-core” scenarios, and 49% faster than it in multi-threaded tasks.

The updated base of processors for PassMark laptops will help us. In the PassMark – CPU Mark section , you can see the overall rating. At this point, the rating was topped by Intel Core i9-13900HX and AMD Ryzen 9 7845HX. These are the top processors for laptops and portable devices for 2023.
Plus, Apple showed devices with M2 Pro and M2 Max processors. Increased the number of transistors from 20 to 69 billion. New memory controller, bandwidth up to 400 GB/s. Top single-threaded and multi-threaded performance considering power consumption.
What do the letters H [X, S, K], P, U mean in the name. processors
According to the TDP criterion of the U-series of processors, Intel and AMD have leveled off. True, the “blue” focused on energy-efficient cores. The P lineup looks more like the U processors of the “reds” and is located higher. Despite everything, the U series of both is designed for thin laptops.
|HX and HK series :|

Markings X, K, G, F and KF in the name of the laptop processors refer to desktop solutions . For example, the letter F is a cut out graphics core. In previous generations, G is the presence of integrated graphics. Symbol K – unlocked multiplier (for overclocking).
Up to 300 Ryzen 7000 laptop models are expected, and even more with Intel 13th generation. It should be noted that the Ryzen 7040 and 7045 received different graphics cores. A more powerful 16-core model received an iGPU for show. In Intel mobile processors, the situation is similar …
For example, the capabilities of Intel Core i7-11800H and AMD Ryzen 5800H are enough for me. And these are two-year-old processors, but they can handle the power of the RTX 3080 Laptop. And you can consider laptops with i7-12700H or 6800H. Your choice should depend on specific tasks.
