At the same frequencies and identical discrete graphics card, they are 41% more powerful in video games and on 59% are coping with processing 4K-video .
A thanks to reduced power consumption, they are much better dispersed (note: this is the process of increasing the processor clock speed). TO example top Intel Core i9-8950HK with 6 cores runs on frequency of 2.9 GHz, but from Using the utility Turbo Boost accelerates 4.8 GHz. 5 - 6 years ago it was it would be easier to believe in The existence of Chupacabras, rather than such overclocking.
