Intel Alder Lake i7-12800HX: disappointing performance gains, according to early benchmarks

Intel launched a few days ago new powerful processors for gaming laptops, including the Core i7-12800HX. The chip is still not available on the market, but first benchmarks have already revealed its performance.

Our Chinese colleagues from Golden Pig Upgrade Pack have already been able to get their hands on thehas new Intel Core i7-12800HX chip of the 12th generation Alder Lake from Intel. As a reminder, the HX CPU alone has 16 Gen5 lines for the GPU and 4 lines for the Gen4 SSDs. The chipset adds another 16 Gen4 lines and 12 Gen3 lines.

Golden Pig Upgrade Pack compared the performance of two computers Lenovo Legion Y9000 with 16 GB of DDR5 RAM at 4800 MHz, and an RTX 3070 Ti. The only difference between the two machines: one is powered by the new Core i7 12800HX, while the other features a more traditional Core i7-12700H.

The i7-12800HX isn’t much faster than the i7 12800HX according to these benchmarks

Thanks to its 16 cores and its PL1 and PL2 power levels between 125W and 175Wwe expected Intel’s new chip to be much faster than its little sister, which has to make do with 14 cores and power levels between 115 and 135 W, but that’s not the end of the day. case.

According to the Golden Pig Upgrade Pack benchmarks, the performance gain on the new chip is quite insignificant. In effect, the i7-12800HX CPU offers the same performance in single-core in CPU-related benchmarks. On the gaming side, the performance for games did not produce any notable improvements, with the exception of certain AAAs which are entitled to some extra FPS with the new chip.

Only the multi-core scores increased by around 15%, which isn’t surprising given the two extra cores the i7-12800HX benefits from. If you plan to use your computer for gaming, it is therefore not not very relevant to opt for this new processor. The i7-12700H which was launched at the beginning of the year offers very similar performance, and will above all be much more affordable.
