Intel Alder Lake HX: all the details of the “enthusiast” chips for notebooks | Rumor

Videocardz colleagues unveiled a few more details about the 12th generation Intel Core Alder Lake “HX” processors for ultra-high performance laptops that have been rumored for a few weeks – and that Dell has even “more-or-less-introduced” (in the sense that he unveiled the first machines they will be mounted on, admitting just a few details about the chips themselves) a few days ago . According to the source , the chips will be presented tomorrow , and will be aimed at both content creators and the most demanding gamers, and will be the first “mobile” chips (which for Intel means, simply, for 2-in-1 notebooks and other formats of laptops) with 16 cores.

Basically the chips will be based on a BGA package with the same size as desktop LGAs, simply thinner (going from 4.4 to 2mm), will reach TDP up to 55W , will have more cores and more PCIe lanes – in that regard. , fifth generation PCIe technology will also debut on mobile – and they will have ample room for overclocking. In total, the chips will be seven, of which three with vPro technology and four not. The source, which shows an alleged official Intel slide, confirms the technical specifications that have emerged so far , completing and expanding them. Here is the summary mirror:

  • Core i9-12950HX vPro : 16 cores / 24 threads (8 P + 8 E), 2.3 GHz base clock, 5 GHz boost clock, 32 core GPU
  • Core i9-12900HX : 16 cores / 24 threads (8 P + 8 E), 2.3 GHz base clock, 5 GHz boost clock, 32 core GPU
  • Core i7-12850HX vPro : 16 cores / 24 threads (8 P + 8 E), 2.1 GHz base clock, 4.8 GHz boost clock, 32 core GPU
  • Core i7-12800HX : 16 cores / 24 threads (8P + 8E), 2.1 GHz base clock, 4.8 GHz boost clock, 32 core CPU
  • Core i7-12650HX : 14 cores / 24 threads (6P + 8E), 2.5 GHz base clock, 4.6 GHz boost clock, 32 core GPU
  • Core i5-12600HX vPro : 12 cores / 16 threads (4 P + 8 E), 2.5 GHz base clock, 4.6 GHz boost clock, 32 core GPU
  • Core i5-12450HX : 8 cores / 12 threads (4 P + 4 E), 4.4 GHz boost clock, 16 core GPU

As shared technical specifications we can mention:

  • Power
    • TDP: 55 W
    • TDP boost: 157 W
  • Overclock
    • DDR5 RAM support and XMP 3.0 profile
    • New feature called Dynamic Memory Boost
    • Efficiency Core overclocking support
    • New version of Intel Speed ​​Optimizer
    • New version of Intel Extreme Tuning Utility
  • Graphics
    • Compared to the “H” laptop counterparts, the GPU core count has been drastically reduced (from a maximum of 96 to a maximum of 32). The reason is that the HX chips are in fact based on the desktop models. However, they should only be offered on systems equipped with a discrete video card.
  • PCI Express
    • PCIe 5.0 support
    • 48 PCIe lanes: Gen5 x16 + Gen4 x20 + Gen3 x12
