MojoKid writes: Intel lifted its performance embargo today on its new line of Alder Lake 12th Gen Core mobile processors for laptops. Reviews are hitting the web specifically with Intel's higher-end Alder Lake-H processor SKU. Alder Lake is intended to be a single, scalable CPU architecture, designed to address PC client platforms from ultra-mobile solutions down to 9 watts, up to high-performance 125 Watt+ desktop solutions. Alder Lake-H, the foundation of the Core i9-12900HK 14-core/20-thread chip in this review at HotHardware has a 45W power envelope, but it will boost to much higher levels when power and thermal headroom is available. Coupled with NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti mobile GPU, the machine put up some of the best gaming and content creation benchmark numbers ever recorded on a laptop.
Alder Lake-H CPU derivatives will scale back to 8-core chips with a mix of Performance cores and Efficiency cores consistent with Intel's new hybrid architecture. Additional benchmarks and performance recorded on the new Alienware x17 R2 with an identical hardware config were equally as impressive. Intel 12th Gen-powered laptops are starting to become available in market now, with lower power Alder Lake-U SKUs for thin and light machines arriving later this year.
