Wccftech managed to obtain the results of a closed test of a laptop based on an Intel Core i9-12900HK processor. According to Geekbench tests, this chip turned out to be the most productive among all competitors.
The laptop has not yet been released to the market and the test results are missing from the public Geekbench database. Apparently, this was a closed test carried out by the laptop manufacturer, and its results only appeared on the Internet 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 be released, in which chips are expected with 16 cores and 24 threads.
The base frequency of the Core i9-12900HK is 2.9 GHz, and this probably belongs 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 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 announced at CES 2022, which opens on January 5.
