Intel is all set to launch its 12th Gen Alder Lake-P Laptop CPUs on CES 2022

CES 2022 is fast approaching, and nearly all of Intel’s 12th Gen Alder Lake-P Laptop CPUs have been leaked and benchmarked in Geekbench.

The entire Tiger Lake-H45, H35, and UP3 chip portfolio will be replaced by the Intel Alder Lake-P series. The top SKU will have 14 cores, which will be made up of 6 Golden Cove cores and 8 Grace Mont cores. Two Golden Cove cores and eight Gracemont cores will be used in the parts that will replace the Tiger Lake-U15 series. Both GT2 and GT3 Xe configurations with up to 96 Execution units will be available on the chips.

Intel Alder Lake-P U/H Series Configurations:

  • 2 Big Cores + 8 Small Cores with a GT2/GT3 GPU (U15)
    • 4 Big Cores + 8 Small Cores with a GT2/GT3 GPU (U28)
    • 6 Big Cores + 8 Small Cores with a GT2/GT3 GPU (U28)
    • 4 Big Cores + 8 Small Cores with a GT2/GT3 GPU (H45)
    • 6 Big Cores + 8 Small Cores with a GT2/GT3 GPU (H45)
    • 6 Big Cores + 8 Small Cores with a GT2/GT3 GPU (H45)

Support for Thunderbolt 4, PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes, and WiFi 6E are among the platform’s other features. The Intel Alder Lake-P CPUs will be able to support both LPDDR5 and DDR5 memory configurations. Intel is expected to ship the Alder Lake-P with LPDDR5 memory first, followed by the higher-end Tiger Lake-H successors with DDR5 memory.

Geekbench has shown the existence of six 45W (H45) and three 28W (U28) chips. The flagship Core i9-12900HS has 14 cores and 20 threads at up to 5.0 GHz, while the Core i7-12700H has 14 cores and 20 threads at up to 4.9 GHz, Core i7-12700H has 14 cores and 20 threads at up to 4.6 GHz, and the Core i7-12650H has 10 cores and 16 threads at up to 4.5 GHz. The 12500H and 12450H are two Core i5 processors with 12 cores / 16 threads and 8 cores / 12 threads, respectively.

The Core i7-1280P has 14 cores / 20 threads and runs at up to 4.7 GHz, the Core i7-1260P has 12 cores / 16 threads and runs at up to 4.6 GHz, and the Core i5-1240P has the same core configuration but runs at a lower 4.4 GHz boost speed.

Considering all of the different laptop configurations these chips are featured in, comparing their overall CPU performance is still a bit messy. Performance is also affected by cooling configurations and OEM-imposed power limits, and to make matters worse, these chips are engineering samples rather than retail variants. The sample size is also too small to provide an exact performance metric at this time, but the data provided by Videocardz indicates where the 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake laptop CPUs will rank against the competition.

The above performance figures offer us a sense of where the Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake CPU will fall. The Intel portfolio outperforms AMD’s Ryzen 5000H lineup in single-core and multi-core performance, and it will also be competitive against AMD’s Ryzen 6000H lineup, which is based on an improved Zen 3 core rather than a new architecture with more cores. At CES 2022 on January 4th, expect more from Intel and its new laptop lineup.
