Intel Vision: In Intel Vision 2022, seven new mobile processors have been launched under the company’s 12th Gen Intel Core Mobile Processor Family. Intel says the new 12th-generation Intel Core HX processors use “desktop-caliber silicon in a mobile package.” Intel has stated that ‘the 12th generation Intel Core HX processor family delivers real world productivity, collaboration, content creation, gaming and entertainment in innovative mobile designs.’ Intel’s new HX processors are unlocked out-of-the-box and are available in Core i5, Core i7 and Core i9 models.
It aims to provide high-level performance for professional workflows such as CAD, animation and visual effects. The new line-up includes 7 new processors Intel Core i5-12450HX, Core i5-12600HX, Core i7-12650HX, Core i7-12800HX, Core i7-12850HX, Core i9-12900HX, and the top-line Intel Core i9-12950HX.
The new Intel processors are equipped with 16 cores and 24 threads, including up to 8 performance cores and up to 8 cores, running at a base power of 55W. The 12th generation Intel Core HX processor is said to offer 65% higher performance in multi-threaded workloads than the 11th generation Intel Core i9-11980HK.
The new 12th generation processor offers 16 PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes, up to 128GB of DDR5/LPDDR5 (up to 4800MHz/5200MHz) and DDR4 (up to 3200MHz/LPDDR4 4267MHz), Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+)2.
The new processor left them behind
Intel also claims that these 12th-generation Core HX mobile CPUs outperformed AMD’s current top-end Ryzen 6000 series and Apple’s M1 Max SoC, primarily in media encoding and professional workloads.
Laptop OEMs including Lenovo, HP, Dell, Asus, MSI and Gigabyte will be the first laptops to adopt the new Intel Core HX mobile processor.
