The upcoming 12th generation Alder Lake-P mobile processors are expected to arrive sometime in Q1 2022. However, the first benchmarks carried out by Cinebench for these processors has already started leaking out.
According to Notebookcheck, who received screenshots with the test results, the upcoming Alder Lake-P mobile processor from the Core i7-12700H series is up to 47% faster on the Cinebench R20 and R23 than AMD’s flagship Ryzen 9 5900HX.
Apparently, an upcoming MSI GE76 Raider 12UH laptop had been benchmarked to run on an Intel Core i7-12700H processor. The Core i7-12700H uses 14 cores that support 20 virtual threads.
Cinebench tested the Core i7-12700H processor in the R20 and R23 benchmarks, with both single-thread (ST) and multi-thread (MT) performances.
In the Cinebench R20 single-thread test, the chip scored 689 points beating last-gen Intel by 12% and the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX (570 points) by 21%. On the other hand, the chip scored 7,158 points in the Cinebench R20 multi-thread test, which makes it 47% faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX (4,859 points) that has 8 cores and supports 16 virtual threads.
Further, in a more recent version of the Cinbench R23 benchmark, the Core i7-12700H processor scored 18,501 points in the multi-thread performance. The Intel processor is up to 49% faster than Apple’s ultrafast M1 Max chip (12,385 points) found in the new 2021 16-inch MacBook Pros.
Unfortunately, the publication did not share the results of the energy consumption of the new processor. For instance, Apple’s M1 Max chip has 34W TDP, while Ryzen 9 has 5900HX to 54W TDP (the lower the value, the better). Meanwhile, the Intel Core i7-12700H is expected have 45W TDP. This, however, will have to be confirmed by further tests.
At present, assuming that the results are correct, the new Intel mobile processor to be the most efficient in the market. However, it is important to note that these tests are based on incomplete data and not on the actual product. We will have to wait and watch until the actual product is released.
