Intel Alder Lake-HX Enthusiast Workstation & Gaming Laptop Lineup Leaked: Up to 16 Cores, 5GHz, and PCIe Gen 5.0 Support
Intel’s upcoming 12th Gen Alder Lake-HX processor lineup for enthusiast gaming workstations and laptops has leaked at Videocardz. The line includes various SKUs aimed at the fastest laptops for content creators and gamers.
Intel’s 12th Gen Alder Lake-HX processor lineup leaks: Designed for high-end workstations and gaming laptops with up to 16 cores, 5GHz clocks and PCIe 5.0
The Alder Lake-HX line is Intel bringing 12th generation desktop dies to the laptop segment in a BGA form factor. For this sole purpose, Intel will use the Alder Lake ‘C0’ die which flips a total of 8 P-Cores and 8 E-Cores. These chips will come in the same package size as the desktop pieces which measure 45 x 37.5mm but have been slimmed down to reduce the height from 4.4mm to 2.0mm.
Since they’re based on the same silicon as the desktop components, expect similar core counts, cache sizes, and clock speeds as well. One of the main features is that Intel’s Alder Lake-HX processors will be the first PCIe Gen 5.0 platform for laptops, with a total of 48 PCIe lanes. These include 16 PCIe Gen 5, 20 PCIe Gen 4 and 12 PCIe Gen 3. As one would guess, these would allow for better I/O capabilities than the existing Alder Lake-H range which only offers 28 PCIe lanes which include 16 Gen 4 and 12 Gen 3.
As for the other important feature of the Intel Alder Lake-HX line, we are considering full overclocking support for the processor and DDR5 memory. These will be made possible through an ETU (Extreme Tuning Utility) update while XMP 3.0 profiles will be available on a wide range of HX mobility platforms.
Finally, let’s talk about the SKUs, there are 7 in total which start from 8 cores and go up to 16 cores. There isn’t a single SKU that doesn’t feature on-chip enabled electronic cores. What’s really interesting is that some top tier SKUs in each segment are ECC and vPRO compliant, while 2nd tier SKUs offer full memory and unlimited base overclocks, while the rest have a limited basic OC.
Coming now to SKUs, the Intel Core i9 segment will include the i9-12950HX and i9-12900HX with 16 cores and 24 threads (8+8), offering boosted clocks up to 5.0 GHz, 30 MB cache and digits TDP ranging between 55W (PL1) and 157W (PL2).
The Core i7 segment is the most crowded with three SKUs which include the i7-12850HX, i7-12800HX, and i7-12650HX. The best i7 SKUs come with 16 cores but feature 25MB cache and clocks up to 4.8GHz, while the 12650Hx comes with 14 cores and 20 threads (6+8) for a total of 24 MB cache clocked at up to 4.7 GHz.
Finally, we have the entry-level Intel Alder Lake-HX Core i5 segment which includes the 12-core (4+8) i5-12600HX and the 8-core (4+4) i5-12450HX. These processors feature 18MB and 12MB of cache and the clocks are rated up to 4.6/4.4 GHz, respectively. The only department where these chips are lacking compared to the Alder Lake-H line is the iGPU 32-16 EU which is similar to desktop parts. We can expect these chips to land in several laptops in the coming months leading up to Computex 2022 and an official announcement is expected at Inte’s Vision event next week.
