An Intel Alder Lake-P Core i9-12900H has been spotted in the Ashes of the Singularity database. The Core i9-12900H is a mobile Alder Lake part sporting 14 cores and 20 threads with six Golden Cove P-cores and eight Gracemont E-cores. Alder Lake-P will supplant the current Tiger Lake-H45 SKUs.

Intel is all set to announce the Alder Lake desktop SKUs later this month. Mobile versions of these CPUs usually come out during Q2 of the year accompanied by OEM laptop launches. For instance, Tiger Lake-H was announced back in May this year followed by several gaming and content creation offerings from various OEMs.

That being said, it looks like Intel already has Alder Lake mobile cooking in their labs. We are now getting to see an Alder Lake-P part make its appearance in the Ashes of the Singularity (AotS) benchmark.

The Alder Lake CPU shown in the AotS benchmark is the Core i9-12900H. The Core i9-12900H is an Alder Lake-P processor featuring six Performance Golden Cove cores and eight Efficient Gracemont cores. Since only the Golden Cove cores are capable of hyperthreading, we get a 14 core 20 thread configuration. The AotS benchmark, however, wrongly reads the total core count as 20. 

The entry also shows that the Core i9-12900H is paired with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU and 16 GB of RAM, though we are not sure whether this is of the DDR4 or DDR5 variety. The combination appears to have scored 10,600 points overall in the minimum 1080p preset, which is definitely a more CPU-bound resolution.

For those not in the know, Intel's upcoming Alder Lake mobile parts will be segmented into three broad categories. Alder Lake-M with a TDP range of 9-15 W, Alder Lake-P between 12 W and 45 W, and Alder Lake-S with up to 55 W TDP.

Alder Lake-P will supplant both Tiger Lake-UP3 and Tiger Lake-H45. It is in Alder Lake-P that we will see introduction of the Core i9 SKUs such as the Core i9-12900H. Alder Lake-P tops out at six Golden Cove cores.

Intel is expected to announce Alder Lake mobile between Q1 and Q2 next year alongside the Arc Alchemist dGPUs, meaning several benchmark leaks of this combination can be expected to trickle down in the run up to launch.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
