Intel Core i7-12800HX already tested

A few days ago Intel presented the new range of Alder Lake-HX laptop CPUs, consisting of a more powerful line characterized by a greater number of cores and more boosted frequencies. As we have already reported to you previously, the packaging of these new models maintains the same dimensions as the desktop counterparts, being versions adapted for BGA socket. Although very little time has passed since launch, the Golden Pig Upgrade Pack user has already published a benchmark of the Core i7-12800HX on a Chinese social platform.

As you can see in some posted images, unlike the Alder Lake-P models, the new CPU is accompanied by a chipset (Intel HM670) that expands the number of PCI-E lanes for GPU, storage and peripherals: Core i7-12800HX already has 16 PCI-E 5.0 lanes destined for to the GPU and 4 PCI-E 4.0 lanes for SSDs, the presence of the chipset increases the PCI-E 4.0 lanes to 16, adding also 12 PCI-E 3.0 lanes.

Source: Videocardz Intel Core i7-12800HX exceeds 12700H in multi-thread tests with an average of 15%, while in single-thread tests the performance level remains practically identical. Even in games the difference is negligible, the new CPU from Intel is in fact only 2.56% faster than the 12700H in triple A titles, keeping the performance unchanged in the rest of the games.

Source: Videocardz Benefiting from two more cores and higher frequencies, the Core i7-12800HX reaches a consumption of 125W and 175W in PL1 and PL2, unlike the 12700H which stops at 115W and 135W. The user has also published additional benchmarks that you can take a look at in the post published on the social network.
