Geekbench listing confirms key Intel Core i7-12700H and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti mobile specs
Now that Intel has taken the covers off the 12th-generation Alder Lake desktop processors, it's time to shift focus to their mobile counterparts. We got a brief glimpse at the top-of-the-line Intel Core i9-12900H some time ago on the AoTS (Ashes of the Singularity) database, which revealed that the processor would pack 14 cores and 20 threads, but not a lot more. Now, its younger sibling, the Core i7-12700H, has shown up on Geekbench alongside a powerful companion, the yet-to-be-announced Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti mobile.
The listing showcases that the graphics card in question is indeed the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. It was spotted alongside an HP Omen gaming laptop, managed to score an impressive 90,114 points on the Geekbench Vulkan benchmark. One can find other details about the graphics card on its OpenCL test, where it managed to net a score of 127,392. Much like the laptop GeForce RTX 3080, it will ship with 16GB of VRAM. Other GeForce RTX 3080 Ti specs include 58 SM (streaming multiprocessors) and a base clock speed of 1,395MHz. We don't know a lot more about the card other than that it will use a new GA103M GPU.
Moving on to the Intel Core i7-12700H, we get a 14-core, 20-thread processor operating at a base frequency of 2.4GHz and a boost clock of 4.2GHz. While its exact core configuration is unknown, we learned earlier that it could feature six Golden Cove (P) and eight Gracemont (E) cores. The listing also confirms an earlier report about Alder Lake-P processors using an FCBGA 1744 socket. Lastly, the HP Omen laptop is running 32GB of RAM. However, it isn't clear if it is DDR4 or DDR5 at the moment.
HP unveiled the Tiger Lake-H refresh of the Omen 17 earlier this year (2021), so it could be a while before we see its Alder Lake sibling in action. Alder Lake is slated to offer multiple processors with a wide TDP range, including M5 for tablets, U9 for ultra-thin laptops, U15 and U28 for conventional laptops, and H45 for high-end devices. There's a rumoured H55 tier this time around, too. If we go by previous launches, we'll see the U and M SKUs out and about before their H variants.
