Intel's 12th-generation Core "HX" notebook processor exposure

Intel is about to launch a new Alder Lake-HX processor with higher specifications than the current Alder Lake-H, reaching 16 cores and 24 threads. Now, Geekbench has exposed multiple models, including i5, i7, and i9.

  • i9-12950HX: 16 cores, 24 threads, 2.5-4.9GHz, 30MB L3 cache
  • i9-12900HX: 16 cores 24 threads, 2.5-4.9GHz, 30MB L3 cache
  • i7-12850HX: 16 cores 24 threads, 2.4-4.7GHz, 25MB L3 cache
  • i5-12600HX: 12 cores 16 threads, 2.8-4.6GHz, 18MB L3 cache

The current Alder Lake-H has a maximum of 14 cores and 20 threads, and basic power consumption of 45W; the new Alder Lake-HX has a maximum of 16 cores and 24 threads, and basic power consumption of 55W. In addition, the nuclear display specification of the Alder Lake-HX series has been reduced from the original maximum of 96EU to 32EU.

The Alder Lake-HX series processors are expected to be used in flagship gaming laptops and professional mobile workstations from various manufacturers. The Intel H55 processor broke the news a long time ago, and the news said that the series will be different from other models, using the SBGA package, with better heat dissipation.
