Alder Lake i7-12700H 115W TDP .
New performance results for Intel’s upcoming Alder Lake Core i7-12700H mobile processor have appeared on Twitter thanks to user @9550pro. The popular leaker shared three tweets, one relating to the Cinebench performance of the new processor and the second regarding the processor’s integrated graphics performance. A third tweet talks about Cinebench R20 performance with an even higher 135W TDP. It’s safe to say this processor is an incredible performer if these results are valid.
The chip’s specifications are no joke, which will explain why this chip is so fast in the benchmarks below. The i7-12700H comes with 14 cores and 20 threads, with six of those being performance cores and eight being efficiency cores. You’ll also find 24MB of L3 cache, which Intel calls Smart Cache. Unfortunately, the thread count only goes up to 20 because the E-cores lack HyperThreading.
Intel lists three turbo-boosting frequencies for this CPU on its ARK website. The first is the Efficient-core Max Turbo Frequency which peaks at 3.5GHz, while the second is the Performance-Core Max Turbo Frequency of 4.7GHz. Finally, the Turbo Boost Max 3.0 Frequency is also rated for 4.7GHz. These are effectively the PL1 and PL2 Turbo specifications.
Power draw is rated for a minimum of 35W, a base power of 45W, and a maximum turbo power of 115W. These are the minimum and maximum power limits OEMs are allowed to use in their notebook designs, so don’t expect every single 12700H to run at a peak of 115W.
In the first tweet demonstrating the 115W TDP of the i7-12700H, the CPU ran both Cinebench R20 and R23, as well as CPU-Z’s version 17.01.64 test. In the R20 results, the i7-12700H scored a whopping 690 points in the single-threaded test and 6802 in the multi-threaded test.
This makes the i7-12700H the fastest mobile chip by a long shot compared to previous generations, handily beating AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800H and Intel’s i9-11980HK mobile CPU.
Even more impressive is the 12700H’s ability to beat desktop chips like the Ryzen 7 5800X and i7-11700K, courtesy of results taken from our official reviews of those processors.
The same story also applies in Cinebench R23 and CPU-Z’s tests, but with an even greater degree of bias towards the i7-12700H.
However, the story doesn’t end there. If we look at the 135W TDP results for the 12700H, the performance gap becomes even wider with a Cinebench R20 score of 7392 points, giving the CPU an additional 8% more performance in this benchmark.
