Leaked benchmarks from Geekbench have revealed the specs for Intel's Core i9, Core i7, and Core i5 HX-series processors, showing increased clocks & core counts compared to their predecessors.

  • i5-12600HX: 12 cores, 16 threads, 2.5-4.6GHz, 18MB L3 cache
  • i7-12850HX: 16 cores, 24 threads, 2.0-4.8GHz, 25MB L3 cache
  • i9-12900HX: 16 cores, 24 threads, 2.3-5.0GHz, 30MB L3 cache
  • i9-12950HX: 16 cores, 24 threads, 2.3-5.0GHz, 30MB L3 cache

The new Alder Lake-HX series processors will be packaged in the BGA format. Several sources claim that the new chips offer optimized voltages so that power is conserved and tuned for maximum performance/efficiency on laptops. Intel's latest CPU series will also provide a higher core and thread count than the existing Core i9-12900HK. With the 12900HK providing a configuration of 14-cores and 20-threads, the new Intel Alder Lake-HX chips will offer a 14% increase in core and a 20% increase in the thread count. The Alder Lake HX series will be faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 6000 APU, the company's fastest mobile chipset. Still, they will also consume much higher power than we have seen with other notable Intel Alder Lake desktop processors.

Several manufacturers including ASUS have mentioned that laptop designs based on Intel's newest mobile chipset are in the works and will be revealed over the next few months. One such company is Dell, which the company is preparing its brand new Precision 7000 series workstation laptops. The laptops feature Intel Alder Lake-HX CPUs and Pro GPUs in Intel Arc & NVIDIA's RTX families.
