Alder Lake mobile has been around lately. This is telling because the chip is not even officially announced yet. The amount of leaks and rumors surrounding Alder Lake-P has sparked conversation to the point that we can’t wait for the launch. All signs point to a dethronement of AMDcrown in the mobile market and today’s leak is no different.
NotebookCheck was able to get Cinema bench R20 and R23 scores from a trusted source and when compared to the competition it doesn’t research AMD Where Apple. Cinebench runs would have been recorded on an unreleased disc MSI flagship laptop with the Core i7-12700H processor. Other specifications of the laptop have not been confirmed. Additionally, the leak once again reiterates the almost confirmed topology of the 12700H and it matches what we’ve heard before.
The Core i7-12700H is 14 cores, 20 threads mobile processor with a TDP of 35-45W and a base clock speed of 2.7 GHz which matches the SKU name well. The chip is based on the new hybrid architecture of Alder Lake. This architecture benefits from “big little”Chip design in which two different types of cores work together to find the best balance of performance. In the i7-12700H there is 6 Golden Cove performance cores and 8 Gracemont efficiency cores with hyperthreading only available on the former.
Performance cores come into play in intensive single-core tasks where faster clocks are imperative. Whereas, efficiency cores ring when a task that requires parallel processing across multiple cores, such as rendering, is on the screen. This hybrid design has so far proven to be very effective for desktop Alder Lake where it has dethroned AMD for the crown of best-in-class performance, albeit at the cost of worse thermals.
This trend seems to be moving to mobile and Alder Lake-P is becoming a monster in every way, where even the lowest tier 12700H beats some of the fastest flagships on the market, and that too with margins. important. Today’s leak further testifies to this by showing how much of a gap there is between the 12700H and its contemporaries, and the fact that this on a pre-release sample that is probably not set to 100% is even more frightening.
In Cinema bench R20, i7-12700H has successfully achieved a single core note of 689 points and one multicore note of 7158 points. While Intel has generally always been the leader when it comes to single-core performance, multicore has been AMD’s game. However, these figures suggest the opposite. The i7-12700H’s score of 7158 points is impressive, even beating AMD’s flagship Ryzen 9 mobile processor.
But, let’s talk about these single core numbers first. Related to Ryzen 5900HX, who got 570 points in the same test, the i7-12700H is roughly 21% faster. Keep in mind that the 5900HX isn’t even a direct competitor to the 12700H as it’s a flagship, AMD’s second best mobile processor in fact. To continue, the current reigning single-core champion Cinebench R20 is the Core i9-11950H… that beats the i7-12700H 12% to take the first place.
If these single-hearted numbers wowed you, then you’re in for a treat. The highest multi-core score in Cinebench R20 for a mobile chip comes from the Ryzen 9 5900HX Which side scored 4859 points in its course. The i7-12700, on the other hand, achieved 7158 points making the 12700H 47% faster than the Ryzen 9 5900HX. The Ryzen 9 5980HX was not part of this test because it is only available in one laptop that has not yet been released. Even if it was part of the test, the 12700 would have no problem embarrassing it.
In a leaked Geekbench test, the i9-12900HK turned out to be 61.3% faster that the Ryzen 9 5980HX so the i7-12700H smoking the Ryzen 9 5900HX with these margins looks very plausible. Additionally, the i9 crushed Apple’s M1 Max as well, and as we’ll see later in this article, the i7-12700 does the same. Before moving on to the Cinebench R23, it’s worth noting that if you take the overall average, the i7-12700H is roughly 53% faster than the i9-11950H and 82% faster compared to the i9-10980HK.
To come R23 cinema bench, the source did not provide single-core results at the time of writing, but we have multi-core scores to compare, and just like with Cinebench R20, these don’t disappoint. The mesh i7-12700H 18,501 points in the multicore test which is 47% faster than the Ryzen 9 5900HX, which is the fastest mobile chip in this department. Interestingly, Cinebench R23 can also run natively on the Mac M1 therefore, of course, a comparison is in order. Against the M1 Max found in the new Macbook Pro, the fastest MacBook made by Apple, the i7-12700H scored 49% more points, leaving the M1 Max in the dust.
What this means for the future
Obviously, these numbers are quite overwhelming. Unless you’re Intel, your chip, no matter how powerful, is just losing out to Alder Lake-P and it looks like the competition is suddenly so far behind that it might take generations to get it. catch up ! I really didn’t expect this to say for Intel anymore, but they’ve proven their worth. AMD is currently planning the launch of Ryzen 6000 “Rembrandt” mobile processors based on Zen3D Where Zen3 + microarchitecture and 6nm process node. While, Rembrandt will offer a nice performance leap over Ryzen 5000 Cezanne, that won’t really give Intel its bang for the buck.
Ryzen 7000 this is where things get real. If all goes as planned, 2023 AMD will launch its Raphael-H mobile processors based on the Zen 4 microarchitecture, which will increase the number of cores to a maximum of 16 hearts 32 threads, and that will be the real answer to Alder Lake. By then Intel would also be a generation or two ahead, so it would be interesting to see what the processor battlefield looks like in the future. For now, Alder Lake-P will be here soon and it is poised to shake up the mobile phone market with a seismic earthquake.
