Apple M1 Max surpasses Intel Alder Lake laptop CPU

Home - Tech News - Apple M1 Max surpasses Intel Alder Lake laptop CPU

So, Desktop Alder Lake chips beat the intel 12th gen laptop M1 Max, but they draw a lot more power. Following the debut of 12th-gen desktop processors, Intel’s Alder Lake apple m1 max price in india mobile CPUs are expected to arrive in Q1 2022, but they may be excellent performers, according to a new leak.

In fact, going by Geekbench results leaked by Wccftech, the Intel Core i9-12900HK mobility CPU outperforms Apple’s incredible new M1 Max SoC (as introduced with the new MacBook Pros), which is rather unusual.

Although we should be cautious about assuming this is a genuine Geekbench 5 benchmark, owing to the fact that it is a pre-release leak.

Compared to leaked results showing 1,785 for Apple’s M1 Max and 1,616 for the current Intel 11980HK laptop processor, the 12900HK scores 1,851 in Geekbench 5 single-core.

As a result, the 12900HK is said to be almost 4% quicker than Apple’s SoC and around 15% faster than its Tiger Lake predecessor.

The 12900KH scores 13,256 on multi-core, compared to 12,753 for the M1 Max and 9,149 for the 11980HK. So that’s another 4 percent victory over Apple and a staggering 45% multi-core generational leap for Intel’s laptop chips.

Keep in mind that both Intel CPUs have similar power consumption, and it demonstrates how much difference those little efficiency cores make to multi-core results.

The 12900KH is advertised as a 14-core CPU with 20 threads, so it must have 6 performance cores (for 12 threads) and 8 efficiency cores (which lack hyper-threading).

Oh yeah, and in case you were wondering how the Ryzen 5980HX stacked up against AMD, Wccftech included it in the results, with an score of 8,217, meaning the 12900KH was 61% faster for multi-core.

Laptops will fare well in Alder Lake, but they won’t be as efficient as Apple’s.

These are spectacular outcomes, therefore there is a need for some caution about this leak. However, if it’s true, then Intel’s ability to outperform the M1 Max in single-core as well as multi-core performance is remarkable.

That said, when power efficiency is factored into the equation, Apple will continue to reign supreme as you would expect.

The Alder Lake chip will apparently have a similar power envelope to the 11980HK, which is a 65W part, and when pushed will consume considerably more energy than the M1 Max, which is expected to be 30W according to Apple’s initial reveal (it’ll have greater room to be pushed; don’t forget about High Power Mode on the new MacBook Pro 16-inch).

Meanwhile, while Apple is clearly going to have the best of Intel in terms of pure power efficiency, we shouldn’t overlook the significance of Alder Lake for laptops using Intel’s mobile chips.

When idle or executing modest chores, those efficiency cores should make a significant impact on battery life when compared to current notebooks with Tiger Lake engines.
