Move Over M1
There is a new leak of the Geekbench performance of Intel’s 12th-generation Alder Lake mobile CPUs, at least that is what it appears to be for Intel offered no comment on the results. The tests compared the i9-12900HK to Apple M1 Max, the i9-11980HK and AMD’s 5980HX and the new Intel chip came out on top, and not by a small margin.
In single core performance the new Alder Lake chip hit a score of 1851, the previous champion was the M1 Max at 1785 with the others 1000 or more points behind. The score of 13256 in multicore performance also surpassed Apple’s new chip but when you compare the i9-12900HK to AMD and the previous generation of Intel chips you can really see the difference; they scored 8217 and 9149 respectively.
It looks like Intel has finally overcome the problems they’ve had with moving to a new process, if accurate, the new mobile Alder Lake is going to offer a serious upgrade to mobile performance. We can hope that along with the increase in performance comes with an increase in stock levels as well.
The reign of Apple's M1 SoC at the top of the Geekbench speed benchmarks may soon be over with the impending arrival of Intel's 12th-generation Alder Lake mobile processors. Hardware site Wccftech appears to have been leaked Intel's upcoming Core i9-12900HK mobile CPU, and has now revealed the first benchmarks.
