Intel Core i5-12500H trounces the Ryzen 5 5600H on Geekbench; Core i7-12700H is equally impressive

Teaser
Geekbench has revealed several Intel Core i5-12500H specs, including four Golden Cove cores, eight Gracemont cores, and a 3.8GHz base clock speed. Its single and multi-core scores on Geekbench are 1,602 and 8,367, respectively, which are noticeably ahead of the AMD Ryzen 5 5600H.

We first stumbled upon the Intel Core i7-12700H on Geekbench's OpenCL test, which shed light on its key specs, such as base/boost clocks and core/thread count. A subsequent listing told us more about its single and multi-core performance, following which we exclusively reported about its Cinebench scores. We now get to see the Alder Lake Core i7-12700H in action yet again, this time around with its younger sibling, the Core i5-12500H.

Before we delve into the Core i7-12700H's performance metrics, let's take a look at what Geekbench tells us about the Core i5-12500H. It has twelve cores and sixteen threads, suggesting that it could pack four high-performance Golden Cove cores and eight efficiencies Gracemont cores. We previously learned that such a part could be rated for 28W TDP. Its base clock is set at 3.8GHz, and Geekbench incorrectly reports its boost clock speed to be 26.8GHz.

The Intel Core i5-12500H first Geekbench run yields a single-core score of 1,503 and a multi-core score of 6,896. The second run seems to be a lot better, with the numbers increasing to 1,602 and 8,367. A cursory glance at its predecessor's (Core i5-11500H) Geekbench listings shows average scores of 1,450 and 6,000, suggesting that the Alder Lake-P part is approximately 10% faster in the single-core department and 30% in multi-core.

Things get even more exciting when comparing the Intel Core i5-12600H with the AMD Ryzen 5 5600H's Geekbench performances. The Cezanne-based processor's single-core average in our database sits at around 1,389 and the multi-core average at 6,684. While the latter figures are neck and neck, Intel's Alder Lake-P offering has a significant leg up in the single-core department. That being said, it is a tad unfair to compare products across two generations, and it'll be interesting to see how the Core i5-12500H fares against Rembrandt.

Now that we have the Core i5-12500H out of the way, it's time to shift focus to the beefier Core i7-12700H. Previous reports have already revealed many of its key specs, such as six performance and eight efficiency cores. The processor manages to score 1,758 and 12,164 on the benchmark's single and multi-core tests, which is remarkably better than its previous showing of 1,654 and 9,618. Once again, the Alder Lake-P silicon manages to handily outperform AMD's similarly-specced offering, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H (1,449 single-core and 7,810 multi-core avg).
