Intel released new 12th generation Core processors for laptops

Intel sprinkled drums almost exclusively around the new H-series power processors, but at the same time, specifications for the P- and U-series processors were also released.

Intel’s CES keynote was somewhat sluggish than expected, but on the processor side, the company slammed the news all over. New processors were available both for the desktop and for laptops in several different categories.

The 12th generation Core-H series processors were previously codenamed Alder Lake-P. The chips for high-performance laptops physically contain six P-cores, eight E-cores and an Xe-LP graphics controller in 96 EU units. Processors widely support the latest technologies, such as DDR5 and LPDDR5 memory, but PCI Express support is limited to 4.0 (x8 + 2 x x4) instead of 5.0 for desktop models.

The processor chipset is integrated directly into the same packaging, and Intel makes no clear distinction in its graph as to which features are tied to the processor and which are chip-bound. However, the chipset is expected to include 12 PCIe 3.0 lines, Wi-Fi 6E support, two SATA 3.0 ports and a gigabit network port, and 4 USB3 and 10 USB2 ports. In addition, the platform provides support for Intel Deep Link, which allows the integrated and dedicated graphics controller to work together in certain situations and to share the TDP budget between the processor and the dedicated graphics card as needed.

Intel will make available eight different processors for the H-Series, split into two Core i9 models, three Core i7 models and three Core i5 models. The top model Core i9-12900HK is multiplier-free and other multiplier-locked. The Core i7 and i9 models have six P-cores and eight E-cores, except for the i7-12650H, which has four E-cores. On the Core i5 side, there are four P-cores and eight E-cores, except for the i5-12450H, where there are four. You will find more detailed technical information in the table above.

According to Intel, the new mobile-flagship model Core i9-12900HK is the fastest on the market in terms of both gaming and utility. According to the company’s own tests, the novelty in all test games is faster than the Core i9-11900HK or AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900HX. Depending on the game, the differences from the individual percentages between all three range at best to 28% in favor of the Core i9-12900HK compared to the i9-11900HK and clearly more compared to the Ryzen.

In utility applications, Intel ran tests on Adobe Creative Cloud applications, Autodesk applications, Blender, and CrossMark. Unlike other tests, Apple’s M1 Pro and M1 Max were also included. According to the company’s tests, the Core i9-12900HK is the fastest and performance-enhancing Core i9-11900HK in all four tests, compared to 9-44 percent, depending on the test.

Intel focused specifically on the H-Series in its release, but it also unveiled the P- and U-series processors. Like the H-Series, the P-Series Core processors are based on 6P + 8E chips, while the U-Series uses a chip with two P-cores and eight E-cores. The Xe graphics controller is also equipped with a maximum of 96 EU units in the U-Series. You will find more detailed technical features of both the P and U series in the tables above.
