Some of the major characteristics of Intel’s next Alder Lake-HX processors have been leaked in a big leak. Intel’s new chip portfolio is scheduled to be announced during its Vision event, which will take place over two days from May 10 to 11.

Last month, a major leak exposed details about the new chips. The most recent research appears to back up most of the previous claims, showing strong, desktop-grade processors on laptops for gamers and enthusiasts.

While Intel has long been associated with CPUs, it recently announced the first set of Arc GPUs for laptops, with desktop cards following later in 2022. With the Arc A-series cards, Intel has become a third significant rival in a GPU market dominated by Nvidia and AMD. Although the business has long offered integrated GPU solutions for its desktop and mobile CPUs, the addition of discrete graphics has piqued the interest of gamers and DIY enthusiasts around the world.


Just a few days before Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake-HX laptop CPUs are announced, VideoCardz has published what appears to be an official Intel slide, detailing as many as seven new processors that will be announced at the event. The Alder Lake-HX range will be based on desktop silicon and will be the first laptop CPUs to feature 16 cores, as well as compatibility for PCIe Gen5 and DDR5 memory. The fact that the next chips are all aimed at enthusiasts and support overclocking is one of the most important features.

Three of the Alder Lake-HX lineup’s top-end chips will have eight performance and eight efficiency cores

According to the leaked slide, the flagship Core i9-12950HX will have a 2.3GHz base clock and a 5GHz peak turbo frequency for its performance cores, and a 1.7GHz base clock and a 3.6GHz boost frequency for its efficiency cores. Hyper-threading will be available on all of the chips in the lineup, with the top three giving up to 24 threads in total. The Core i5-12450HX, for example, will have eight cores and 12 threads.

A total of 48 PCIe lanes are available on the Alder Lake-HX platform, comprising 16 PCIe 5.0 lanes, 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes, and 12 PCIe 3.0 lanes. DDR5 memory with XMP 3.0 settings and Dynamic Memory Boost will also be supported.

In terms of power consumption, all Alder Lake-HX chips are stated to have a default TDP of 55W, but this can be increased to 157W for overclocked chips. Finally, the integrated GPUs on the new chips have been lowered in the core count to 16 on the basic SKU and 32 on the remaining six SKUs, according to the slide.
