The closed test results of a laptop powered by an Intel Core i9-12900HK processor has managed to leak out by an insider. Based on the test result on Geekbench, this chip will be the most powerful among all competitors.
The laptop is yet to hit the market and the test results are missing from the public Geekbench database. Apparently, this was an internal test by the laptop manufacturer, and its results appeared on the Internet only in the form of a screenshot.
The Intel Core i9-12900HK processor with 14 cores and 20 threads belongs to the Alder Lake family – this is the top option for the Alder Lake-P series. In the future, some sources say, the Alder Lake-S series will launch, in which chips will arrive with 16 cores and 24 threads.
The base frequency of the Core i9-12900HK is 2.9 GHz and is probably related to the economical Efficient Cores. The maximum frequency of 371 MHz is clearly incorrect and indicates some kind of error.
According to the test results, the chip managed to demonstrate the highest performance of all known mobile processors; including the Tiger Lake-H45 series products and the mobile Zen3. It left behind it even the Apple M1 Max chip announced this week.
According to Intel’s plans, mobile computers with Alder Lake-P processors will debut alongside Arc Alchemist graphics cards. They will likely be part of CES 2022 announcements, which opens on January 5.
