While earlier today we reported on potential leaks of Intel's 12th Gen Core 65W desktop processors, Intel has announced its mobile lineup of its 12th Gen Intel Core processors, claiming that the flagship in the lineup is the "world's fastest mobile processor". Intel further claims it is continuing its "industry-leading mobile performance" through its latest iteration of its flagship, the Core i9-12900HK, stating that it is "not only the world's best mobile gaming platform, but also the fastest mobile processor ever created."
In order to accomplish this claim, Intel states it is pairing its Performance-cores (P-cores) and Efficient-cores (E-cores) with intelligent prioritization of workload and management distribution through Intel Thread Director. The Intel Core i9-12900HK CPU improves system performance across single and multi-threaded applications in comparison to the previous generation of Intel's CPUs.
The new 12th Gen H-series processors are based on the Intel 7 process and offer a host of notable improvements when compared to the previous generation, including:
- Frequencies up to 5 GHz, 14 total cores (6 P-cores and 8 E-cores) with 20 threads which give the 12th Gen Core i9-12900HK "the crown as the fastest mobile processor"
- For mobile gaming, Intel claims up to 28% faster performance when compared to the Core i9-11980HK
- Broad memory for LPDDR5/DDR5 and LPDDR4/DDR4 modules at up to 4800 MT/s
- Wireless connectivity at nearly three times faster rates on exclusive high-speed channels without legacy Wi-Fi interference using WiFi-6E (Gig+)
Intel claims that its 12th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors are designed for enthusiast gamers, engineering professionals, and creators who "want to push their laptop performance to the next level". Mobile laptops and devices powered by Intel's 12th Gen Core H-series mobile processors will become available starting in February 2022.
