14-core Raptor Lake P mobile chip shows up on UserBenchmark: Beats the Core i9-12900HK in single and multithreaded tests
A purported Intel Raptor Lake mobile CPU recently showed up on the Userbenchmark platform. The 14-core, 20-thread chip was spotted by tipster @momomo_us and is apparently paired with next-gen LPDDR5 memory.
The Raptor Lake chip beat out the Alder Lake Core i9-12900HK in both single and multithreaded workloads, despite featuring a relatively tame 4.2 GHz turbo clock. The performance differential wasn’t massive, however. In Userbenchmark’s single-threaded test, the Raptor Lake chip had slightly less than a ten percent lead over Alder Lake.
Considering that we’re looking at an engineering sample pre-release, it’s entirely possible that actual Raptor Lake products might deliver even better performance. Intel’s Raptor Lake P chips aren’t expected to release anytime soon, with Q1 2023 a likely launch timeframe.
This raises some tantalizing possibilities with regards to GPU pairings: we could see future Raptor Lake chips paired with Intel’s ARC discrete GPUs as well as NVIDIA’s upcoming Ada Lovelace RTX cards.
