Spark Global Limited reports:

Recently, Intel’s Core I9-12900HK, a high-end processor for the 12-generation Aldar Lake mobile terminal, has seen its performance on Geekbench. Based on the existing performance, the performance of this Core I9-12900HK even exceeds that of Apple’s newly launched M1 Max processor.

Unlike previous Geekbench scores, however, this one cannot be verified, except for a screenshot from Wccftech, because from now on Geekbench will not release unreleased processor scores, including ES and QS processors.

In any case, with only one screenshot in existence, take this exposure with a grain of salt. According to this screenshot, the Core I9-12900HK processor has 14 cores and 20 threads, namely 6 hyperthreading P-core and 8 e-core. The default base frequency of the processor is 2.9GHz, while the core frequency is still unknown.

The Core I9-12900HK has a single-core score of 1851 and a multi-core score of 13256, based on Geekbench 5.4.1 Pro. That means Core I9-12900HK is 14.5 percent ahead of its predecessor, the current Core I9-11980HK, in single-core performance and 44.8 percent ahead in multi-core performance. AMD’s Rayeon 9 5980HX has a lead of 22.9 percent in single-core and 61.3 percent in multi-core.

Apple’s recent M1 Max processor may have shocked a lot of people, but the Core i9-12900HK is still about 3% ahead of the M1 Max, with single-core and multi-core scores of 1785 and 12753, respectively. While the M1 Max will be a more power-efficient processor, it’s still nice to see Intel deliver such a powerful processor to customers.

Intel still doesn’t have an exact time frame for when the 12-generation Aldar Lake mobile processor will ship, but sources say it will be early next year or in the first quarter of next year.
