Intel Said to be Launching 55 W Alder Lake-HX Mobile CPUs Next Week

On Tuesday and Wednesday next week, Intel will host its Intel Vision event which will take a look at what the company will bring in the near future. Although not specified in the program, VideoCardz have managed to secure a slide listing no less than seven new Alder Lake-HX mobile CPUs that Intel are expected to reveal during the event. The new chips will be fully loaded out with eight performance and eight efficient cores and with a total of 24 threads at the top-end, i.e. the same as Intel's current desktop parts. In fact, according to VideoCardz, these CPUs are the same physical size as the desktop CPUs, just in a different packaging that reduces the Z-height.

Alder Lake-HX comes with a base power TDP of 55 W and is said to be a new enthusiast CPU range from Intel in the mobile space. As such, overclocking is said to be allowed, which can push the turbo TDP to at least 157 W and this applies to all the CPUs in the Alder Lake-HX family. The platform is also said to feature a full set of PCIe lanes, which means 16 PCIe 5.0 lanes, 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes and 12 PCIe 3.0 lanes. DDR5 memory with XMP 3.0 profiles is also supported, alongside something called Dynamic Memory Boost. Oddly enough, Intel has even made several vPro SKU's that support overclocking, albeit with some kind of limit compared to the non vPro SKUs. It'll be interesting to see what kind of notebooks these CPUs will be going into and what kind of cooling systems will be required, but it's pretty obvious we're talking desktop replacement machines.

Chaitanya157W yikes.
How can you cool a cpu at 157 w !!!! aleready on my i7-7700hq it's 40w and 95 °C !!!! :confused:

They aren't meant to sustain that power, but to use it for peak \ boost.

HX models will cut the graphic down to 1/3 and increase CPU core count up to 8 P-cores compare to H models.
AMD mobile will completely lose in multi threaded. But very high power draw will be big drawback to Intel.

So it will be the same as it was with the other models P models or whatever the name was that they already release: intel was winning at max performance but rembrandt was killing it with efficiency.

At least on these HX models the focus is performance, efficiency be dammned so it's pretty compelling for anyone who still finds big laptops compelling.

Not that I think high-power mobile parts are a good idea at all, but aren't the HX models competing with desktop Zen3? The power draw of these HX chips is so terrible that you could instead just socket a 5950X into a laptop (plenty of companies do just that). They only draw 147W at peak boost, and honestly still run pretty damn fast if you cap them to 95W.

Maybe just maybe only high end gaming laptops will be set to boost to the max. 147w is not far away from 157 really and tbh i would not want anything that runs even 147 in a laptop so both would be cack not just the Intel.

When you consider some laptops have 3080's in them maybe matching it with a HX or similar Ryzen would not be a bad idea anyway.

With a 157-watt CPU and a 3080 that would not be a laptop, but desktop replacement and its battery duration will be 10 minutes or so... if it is even allowed to run solely on the battery charge :confused:

Still if it is portable with a fold down screen it is a laptop, a desktop power laptop is still a laptop.

Still a laptop, be it more powerful

I disagree - I would agree if you call it some type of hybrid device.

Laptop is a device that can be put on your lap. In your hands.

All personal computers, even those on liquid hydrogen can be moved if there is a good will, thus portable.
Its name comes from lap, as it was deemed practical to be placed on a person's lap when being used.

So this cannot be put on your lap?

Might as well call it a toaster oven.

It depends on the thermal specifics. If you don't allow good airflow by blocking the back exhausts or if you game with it while on your lap, it may very well lead to burning your hands.
The member above said it well - it can be labeled as a toaster oven.

Funny how near ever comment against this is by someone using AMD not at all strange eh. I bet if it was a AMD chip it would be a different story.

Intel is in a deep hole, it continues to launch epic fails ala AMD's Bulldozer...

Still making a ton more money than AMD though.

Lol at bulldozer. Amd failed for ten+ years, had nothing, zip. Intel can "fail" for the same ten years and still make more money than AMD, they must be great at failing.

Yeah, because of "best friend money can buy" "loyal" partner initiatives and widespread corruption. This is an extremely conservative sector of the economy dominated by lack of interest in the best for the money.

IBM told you that there have to be two, competitive x86-64 suppliers, and what does Intel do? Try to bankrupt AMD.

You have AMD so obviously biased, end of. Told you not interested.

As long as the CPU i bought works, i don't give a shit about the ins and outs of the company's dealings.

Even if Intel brought out a CPU 20 times better that used 5 times less power, than what AMD has, you still would not buy it because your mind is corrupted by this crap. just move on and ignore it if it bothers you. You are not going to change anything spouting it at someone who does not care.

Regardless of all the usual anti Intel shit in this thread, these might turn out to be pretty good. Just because the max is 157w does not mean it will use it, and in a desktop replacement they might use prety good cooling for it as i guess it won't matter so much if it is bigger than a normal laptop.

I am attacking you am i?

I don't even care about your opinion, same but you keep replying to me, funny ignoring.

My opinion must bother you or why keep replying? I just don't care for your anti Intel shit. I don't use AMD but don't post in every AMD thread with anti AMD shite do i. so why do you?

Just really ignore me ok please.

157W CPU in a laptop. Where has this world come to? That is like an entire laptop power usage and here we have CPU only.
Obviously it wont stay 157W for long. I'd expects seconds but still. 157W? What is wrong with you Intel?
