It has 24MB L3 cache, basic power rating is 45W, but it can go up to 115W. Integrated Intel GPU Feature 96 Execution Units. Intel claims up to 28% better gaming performance than the Core i9-11980HK.
This flagship CPU Core i9-12900H, Core i7-12800H and Core i7-12700H join the same core counts. Going down this list, the Core i7-12650H has only six P-cores and four e-cores. The Intel Core i5-12600H and Core i5-12500H have four performance cores and eight efficiency cores, while the Core i5-12450H has four cores each.
Intel is targeting mainstream slim and lightweight laptops with a new P-Series tire rated for performance between 45W and 64W. The new Core i7-1280P to Core i3-1220P models will feature six, four, or two P-cores with eight e-cores and integrated graphics with 64 to 96 EU.
U-Series models include Core i7, Core i5, Core i3, Pentium Gold, and Celeron chips that operate between 9W, 29W or 15W and 55W. These models feature one or two P-cores with four or eight e-cores, and are targeted at ultra-portable form components, including foldable and fanless devices running Windows or Chrome OS.
The Alder Lake generation uses ‘Golden Cove’ architecture for P-cores and ‘Gracemont’ for e-cores. The chips are made on the Intel 7 (10nm) process. Intel has developed a new scheduler called Thread Director, which runs on Windows 11 to optimize workloads for a variety of core types.
Platform level support includes DDR5 RAM up to 4800MT / s or some SKUs, AI acceleration, AV1 media decode, Wi-Fi 6e, USB 3.2 Gen2x2 and LPDDR5 with Thunderbolt 4.
In addition, Intel announced the 12th General Socketed Desktop CPU lineup of 65W and 35W TDP ratings, with 22 new models across the Core i9 to Pentium and Celeron ranges.
