Summary Thanks to a massive leap in performance in both the GPU and CPU performance, this generation Enthusiast edition makes a lot more sense. On the CPU front, the new Alder Lake-H i7 is more than up to 90-95 percent of tasks the typical home, small office, and home office user will run into. Arguably it is going to be overkill for many - as it not only comes with 20 cores with a PL1 TDP set to 75 watts but comes with a PL2 set to 95 watts (for 48 seconds). That is a lot of processing power. Enough processing power that if you are using a 3-year-old desktop i5 based system this 14c/20t CPU will run circles around it. All the while coming in a package small enough to easily fit on the back of a 20-inch monitor.
