A leaked slide reveals Intel's upcoming unlocked Core i9-10980HK will offer a Boost of up to 5.3GHz. This new eight-core, sixteen-threaded laptop chip is expected to be introduced on April 2nd. It has a 2.4GHz base clock and a 45W TDP. It's still 14nm of course, as Ice Lake is the only 10nm series from Intel.

The 5.3GHz value is the Thermal Velocity Boost:
However this value is not the typical turbo frequency (Max Boost 2.0) that was rumored thanks to numerous leaks, instead, this is a Thermal Velocity Boost, Intel’s yet another way of boosting the clock speed under specific conditions. In this case, the clock will reach 5.3 GHz if the temperature and the power budget allows. The TVB was first introduced with Core i9-8950HK, Intel’s first i9 for the mobile platform.
