Intel has launched quite a lot of Alder Lake-P series processors for laptops in the market and a bunch of new laptops are already coming into the market powered by these 12th Gen SKUs. Also still Intel is using its confusing name schemes and there are a lot of processors which you might be seeing used in various laptops.
Strangely, it has launched the Core i7-12650H with 10 cores and 16 threads, now, a new Core i7-12650HX spotted on Userbenchmark that supposedly comes with 14 cores and 20 threads, featuring 2.3 GHz base clock speed and a turbo of up to 4.05 GHz (across all cores), we expect the single-core boost speeds to be even higher.
In Userbenchmark it posted 104% in benchmark and that is expected as you can expect good performance especially if you have 14 cores that too on a laptop. These ’muscle’ Alder Lake-HX processors are expected to have a TDP of 45W or 55W and so could end up sporting 16 cores.
The Alder Lake-HX is a full-fat Alder Lake-S chip with eight Golden Cove performance cores, eight Gracemont efficiency cores, 30MB of cache, and a 32-execution-unit integrated Xe-LP GPU. Obviously, these will be very vast and power-hungry chips that laptop manufacturers have to tame, however, one can expect desktop-class performance with these upcoming Alder Lake-HX processors.
