An Intel Raptor Lake-P 14 Core Engineering Sample CPU has been spotted within the User Benchmark database, showcasing performance faster than the existing Alder Lake Core i9-12900HK CPU.

Intel Raptor Lake-P ES CPU With 14 Cores & 4.2 GHz Clocks Beats The Fastest Alder Lake Core i9-12900HK CPU

The sample that has been spotted was evaluated on the 'ERB' Evaluation Reference Board. The processor itself is referenced as an Intel Raptor Lake-P chip with 14 cores and 20 threads. This is a 6 P-Core and 8 E-Core configuration. The P-cores are based on the new Raptor Cove cores while the E-Cores are based on the Gracemont architecture. Now Intel is expected to increase the E-Core count but that's not true for all SKUs. This SKU is the same configuration as the high end Alder Lake-P chips.

The expected SKUs are detailed below:

  • Intel Core i9 K-Series (8 Golden + 16 Grace) = 24 Cores / 32 Threads / 68 MB?
  • Intel Core i7 K-Series (8 Golden + 8 Grace) = 16 Cores / 24 Threads / 54 MB?
  • Intel Core i5 K-Series (6 Golden + 8 Grace) = 14 Cores / 20 Threads / 44 MB?
  • Intel Core i5 S-Series (6 Golden + 4 Grace) = 14 Cores / 16 Threads / 37 MB?
  • Intel Core i3 S-Series (4 Golden + 0 Grace) = 4 Cores / 8 Threads / 20 MB?
  • Intel Pentium S-Series (2 Golden + 0 Grace) = 4 Cores / 4 Threads / 10 MB?

The Raptor Lake-P CPU was running at a base clock speed of 2.5 GHz and a boost clock speed of 4.2 GHz. The platform itself was utilizing the onboard Iris Xe graphics and 16 GB of LPDDR5 memory running at 5200 Mbps speeds. A single OS drive was used which was a WD NVMe SSD.

In terms of performance, the Intel Raptor Lake-P mobility CPU scored 202 points in single-core and 2052 points in the all-core tests. Now UserBenchmark is known for its bias against AMD's CPUs so we are not going to compare the performance of the leaked Raptor Lake part against any Ryzen CPUs but instead use Intel's own Alder Lake CPUs for comparison. The benchmark database includes results for Core i9-12900HK which has the same 14 core and 20 thread CPU config and runs at a higher base clock of 2.9 GHz and boost clock of 4.3 GHz.

Despite that, the Intel Raptor Lake CPU ends up faster in both the single and all-core test results. The Raptor Lake-P ES sample also ends up faster than the much higher clocked Core i5-12600K in single and all-core workloads. This is impressive since the mobility chip is power limited whereas the 'K' series parts are fully unlocked. The CPU does lose against the Core i7-12700K but only in all-core performance since the CPU has more performance cores than E-cores.

Intel has just recently introduced its Alder Lake-P family and will soon be introducing the high-end Alder Lake-HX parts for enthusiast-grade and workstation laptops. Based on this, we can expect Raptor Lake-P CPUs by the end of 2022 or early 2023. Improvements such as the new Raptor Cove cores and increased cache sizes are definitely going to help boost performance & final chips are also expected to run at very high clock speeds so consider this to be a teaser of what's to come on the mobility platform.
