The not yet announced mobile processor Core i9-12900HX from the Alder Lake HX series was noted in the synthetic test database Geekbench 5. The chip is equipped with 16 cores supporting 24 virtual threads.
The processor was tested in an unknown Lenovo laptop, also equipped with a discrete GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card based on the latest NVIDIA GA103 GPU. According to the test, the base frequency of the Core i9-12900HX as part of the above laptop was 2.5 GHz. In the automatic overclocking mode, it rose to a value of 4.88 GHz. However, it is very likely that the final consumer version of the chip will have a maximum clock speed of 5.0 GHz.
The processor scored 1921 points in the single-core Geekbench 5 test and 15,974 points in the multi-core test. It’s 7% and 14% more productive than the mobile 14-core, 20-thread Core i9-12900HK, which has average scores of around 1,800 and 14,000 points, respectively, in the same tests.
At least two models of processors from the Alder Lake HX series are currently known – the Intel Core i7-12650HX with 14 cores and the above Core i9-12900HX with 16 cores. Both are said to have a base TDP of 55W.
