Intel Core i7-12700H Beats Ryzen 9 5900HX by 47% In Leaked Cinebench Scores

Intel is expected to announce their Alder Lake mobile processors in Q1 2022 with rumors and leaks for several of these chips already surfacing. The i7-12700H has recently been spotted running Cinebench on what could possibly be an MSI GE76 Raider 12UH with the results showing impressive performance gains. The processor features six Golden Cove (P) cores and eight Gracemont (E) cores for a total of 14 cores and 20 threads.

The i7-12700H includes a configurable base TDP of 35 W - 45 W and this specific sample was running at a reported base frequency of 2.9 GHz during testing. The processor scored 689 points in Cinebench R20 single-core which places it 12% faster than the Core i9-11950H and 21% faster than AMD's flagship Ryzen 9 5900HX. The processor widens this gap in Cinebench R20 multi-core with a score of 7158 points placing it 47% above the 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 9 5900HX. We can also see that multi-core performance is 49% faster than the recently released Apple M1 Max in Cinebench R23. AMD is preparing their Ryzen 6000 processors for an early 2022 launch which will be competing with these Alder Lake chips but we have yet to see many performance leaks for them to compare with.

Aaaaand it's gonna hit 100 degrees in 10 seconds then throttle like any mobile Intel chip ever. Good luck cooling Alder Lake in a laptop.

Performance might be there but cooling/noise/Temps/constant throttling is what worries me.

Something tells me 45W TDP spread over 14 cores is gonna be easier to cool than 45W over 8 cores...

Beautiful.. slaps around 10900k & 3900x in a laptop form factor... brilliant engineering

47% faster than the "fastest" Ryzen 9 5900HX processor & 49% faster than the M1 Max SoC? That's kinda impressive.

Wow! A newer 14 core CPU is faster than an older 8 core one... impressive!!
And the temperature?

I like to know where there getting those results from for the 11950H as not even the 11980HK can beat the 5900HX.......so as always these results are total BS.....again :rolleyes:

my i7-7820hk is 4 cores and draws 25 watts when gaming, and it still hits 91 celsius or so (this was stock when i bought it in early 2017) it drove me crazy, that's why i went crazy as bonkers trying to fix it over the years. laptop makers are just **** and that is all there is to it. ASUS and MSI and Gigabyte have been getting better over the recent years with cooling and more heatpipes, but imo still not enough.

i'd rather have a heavier laptop than one that always ******* overheats...

I don't know about that. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Yeah TDP set for 45W and then boosts kick in with a 100W.

I wish people would learn a CPU draws as much power as you want it to draw. What performance it delivers within a given power enveloppe is what matters. There's also the part that different SKUs have very different efficiency profiles depending on how hard the architecture is pushed. A 12600k is much more efficient than a 12900k and both are Alder Lake for example. Hell, a 12600K is more effiicient than a 5800x in most workloads...but a 5950x is also much more effiicent than a 5800x in all core workloads.

Yes, let me spend 3 grand on a laptop just to then have to spend my entire day messing with power limits and voltages and what not. What a great user experience!

Correction:A Mobile CPU draws as much power as the manufacturer allow it.
Buy a Dell laptop with a 45W CPU that's set to 20W max.

Notebookcheck provides a lot of details about where their results come from along with reviews on some of the tested models in most cases.

In other manipulated news a fighter jet is able to travel faster than a person using their legs to walk and all it took was a ton of electricity.

Wow! A higher score in Cinebench is actually bad news (judging by comments). Didn't see that one coming.

The context is it's a laptop, meaning one can't infer real world performance from this. Alder Lake in a high end workstation/gaming system where cooling capabilites are nigh endless and power draw is of no concern? Excellent. The same design philosophy a laptop? Naaahh. As always reviews of all the different, specific models will be of great importance.

12600k desktop processor scores about 6700 points in CB20, at 130W package power or so. This ”45W” mobile processor, with identical core configuration and manufacturing process, supposedly scores 7158 points in the same test. Something does not add up. :hmm:

in TPU’s 12600k test, at 4.9GHz all core overclock it does the same all core R23 score.
At 200+W.

Both sides can spin it however they like. Wasn't CB irrelevant when Ryzen launched and weren't benchmarks stupid according to Intel's former CEO?

Laptops are shit

If it does seem to be that fast nice.

TDP says 35-45, where is 100 watts coming from-

-Oh yeah, just another chance to bash Intel
