In a leaked Cinebench Benchmark report, the upcoming Intel Core i7-12700H CPU has successful outperformed the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX in the multi-core performance by 47%.
Following the initial reports from Geekbench performance benchmarks with the upcoming Intel Alder Lake CPU, more performance benchmarks are being leaked by notebookcheck. Like the single core performance, the upcoming Intel Core i7-12700H CPU has managed to outdo the Ryzen 9 5900HX in the multi-thread performance benchmarks too.
In the leaked multi-core performance report, the Intel Core i7-12700H CPU was found to perform 47% faster compared to the Ryzen counterpart.
The upcoming Intel Core i7-12700H CPU from the Alder Lake series is designed and developed with 14 cores and 20 threads. The reports further suggest that the 14 cores configuration is further broken down into 6 Golden Cove and 8 Gracemont cores according to the exclusive information.
The base and boost clock of the new Core i7 and i9 series chipset is set at 2.7GHz and 4.6GHz respectively. It is also integrated with 24MB L3 cache with 35-45W TDP for this specific SKU. All of these internal specifications were shared in an MSI laptop, so users can expect a new gaming laptop featuring the latest Intel Alder Lake CPUs.
According to the Cinebench R20 benchmarks, the Intel Core i7-12700H CPU scored 689 (Single-Core) and 7158 (Multi-Core) points. In the similar Cinebench R23 benchmarks, the same CPU scored 18501 points in the multi-core tests.
So, the reports finalize that the Intel Core i7-12700H CPU has 21% better single-core performance and 47% multi-core performance than the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor.
Despite not being the highest SKU in this series, it is potentially a front-runner in the processor competition in the market at the moment, offering up to 50% faster performance. Reports further suggest that the core i9 SKU offers even better performance with the Intel Core i9-12900HK performing 61% better and faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 5980HX.
Compared to AMD’s Zen 3 lineup, Intel’s Alder Lake series has managed to excel in more ways than one. The hybrid design has put a lot of the other mainstream processors to shame, offering a minimum 20-30% performance gains.
Despite all the latest leaks, reports and the ongoing rumors, there are no official reports about the official launch of the chipset in a laptop. However, rumors do suggest that the launch could very well be in the first or second quarter of 2022.
