Intel Corporation, World’s second-largest semiconductor chip manufacturer, will introduce Core i9-12900HX CPU with 16 cores with an 8+8 configuration. This chip will be the first for Intel to offer such a high core count on the laptop segment.
The 16-core laptop CPU by Intel will feature more core and threads than the current flagship i.e. Core i9-12900HK as it offers 14 cores and 20 threads. This makes it at least 10% faster as it will offer a 14% increase in core and a 20% increase in the thread count.
With the arrival of Intel Core i9-12900HX, we will witness two additional Performance cores, the base clock on this processor will be 2.5 GHz with a boost clock as high as 4.89 GHz. It’s also expected that it will hit a 5.0GHz boost clock upon official release. Its TDP will be 55W and the GPU will have up to 32 Xe-LP cores, which is much lower than the desktop variant.
On Geekbench, the new flagship i.e. Core i9-12900HX scores 1921 points in the single-core test and 15,974 points in multicore in comparison to the current flagship i.e. Core i9-12900HK.
As per Geekbench results, the upcoming processor was spotted running on a Lenovo system which is equipped with GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU. This implies that more new flagship gaming laptops certainly be coming with this beastly combo inside.
The new Alder Lake-HX series processors will be packaged in the BGA format and there have been multiple sources that claim that this is actually the full desktop die with optimized voltages so that power is conserved and tuned for utmost performance/efficiency on laptops.
