The first review of an Alder Lake HX appears: i7-12800HX with 16 cores

From distant Asian lands, today we find a review published on the Chinese social platform Zhihu by the Golden Pig Upgrade Pack team, which showed the first review of an Intel Alder Lake from the HX-Seriesi.e. centered on high performance laptops. We would be in front of a transformer of 16 cores and 24 threads Trained by 8 high-performance cores (P-Cores) Yes 8 energy efficient cores (e cores) at a maximum Boost speed of 4.8GHz and one Basic TDP from 55W (TBP) which would rise to 157W in fashion Turbo/PL2 (MTP). It’s the first review of i7-12800HX.

The Intel Alder Lake HX would differ from the Alder Lake -P in requiring an additional piece of silicon for I/O, the HM670 chipset. said chipset would increase the number of PCIe lanes for GPU usage, storage, and additional peripherals.

If we only have the HX series processor, we already have 16 PCIe 5.0 for the GPU and 4 PCIe 4.0 for the SSD. If to this we add the chipsetwe would get a total of 16 PCIe 4.0 and 12 PCIe 3.0as you can see in the following photo:

Moving on to the CPU analysis, they used 2 identical Lenovo Y9000P laptops with the same NVIDIA RTX 3070 ti GPU (125-150W) and same DDR5 4800MHz RAM. The main difference is that we have a i7-12700H (Lake Alder-P with 14 hearts) and the other has a i7-12800HX (Lake Alder-16 HX cores), therefore the comparative It will only take that into account. Let’s see the differences between the two.

First test of the i7-12800HX and i7-12700H

As seen here with CPU-Z, the performance per core is identical between the two in many cases, ensuring that there is no increase in the CPI. However, by having 2 additional cores, the i7-12800HX gets the leadership when you use all their coresgiving him an advantage in the latter case of a 15% more.

Now let’s move on to games where we can’t guarantee that this new processor has much of an advantage. we see a increase outstanding performance in Total War: Troy and to a lesser extent, in Counter Strike; but we even have worst fps in cases like that of League of Legends. This concludes with a small improvement of 2.5% compared to its rival.

I7 12700H Vs I7 12800HX Gaming Consumption

We end with the analysis of your energy consumptionwhich, as expected, is higher than i7-12700H. We would face a difference of 14W ranging from 54W to 68W approximately. This is something to be expected, and even more so when we have 2 more capable cores compared to the 12700H. And so far this first review of the i7-12800HX and i7-12700H, we will have to wait for even more data.
