Although the energy-efficient Meteor Lake models, which are expected to be launched in December this year, will play the role of the main new generation mobile platform in the Intel processor range, the company is also preparing to release updated versions mobile Raptor Lake-HX Refresh -Models with a nominal TDP of 55W.
One of the updated Raptor Lake-HX mobile models has appeared on the Internet – Core i7-14700HX. The processor was listed in the PugetBench website database as part of a laptop equipped with 64GB of DDR5-4800 RAM. Notably, the chip was accompanied by the Intel Arc A570M mobile graphics card, which is very strange since Core HX processors are usually seen in configurations with more powerful graphics from NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 series. However, it is very likely that the Intel Arc A570M was used solely for testing purposes as part of a mobile system.
The mobile Core HX processors are essentially desktop models, but in a BGA housing. Therefore, the same Core i7-14700HX is expected to offer an increased number of energy-efficient cores to 12, as does the updated desktop model Core i7-14700K, which generally has 8 P-cores and 12 E-cores. We would like to remind you that the Core i7-13700HX has 8 productive and energy efficient cores.
The Core i9-14900HX model featured the flagship chip in the ASUS ROG Strix Scar laptop with 64GB of DDR5-5600 RAM and GeForce RTX 4090.
The updated Core HX mobile chips, like the desktop versions of Raptor Lake-S Refresh, are expected to offer higher operating frequencies compared to their predecessors. In general, no significant changes are expected from the updated mobile processors. It is very likely that they will maintain the same nominal TPD value of 55W and the same maximum power consumption of 157W.
