The Intel Core i5-1250P is the latest Alder Lake processor to show off its performance chops on Geekbench. The low-power mobile chip was working inside an MSI Prestige 14 A12SC laptop, where the i5-1250P was able to produce benchmark scores that put it on par with previous-generation desktop chips from Intel and AMD.

Intel’s gamble with hybrid microarchitecture for Alder Lake is seemingly paying dividends. Many leaks of both desktop and laptop processors have shown the 12th Gen processors in a good light, and this latest Geekbench run for the Intel Core i5-1250P is no different. The 12-core (4x Performance + 8x Efficient), 16-thread part, which reached up to 4,368 MHz peak clock rate, scored 1,611 points in the single-core test and 8,789 points in the multi-core test.

It’s difficult comparing Alder Lake chips because of their unique configurations. The single-core score of the Intel Core i5-1250P (bearing in mind this is a theoretical maximum as it is a single record) puts it ahead of desktop CPUs like the Intel Core i7-11700F (TDP: 65 W), i5-11600 (65 W), and the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X (65 W). It’s well beyond the 1,466 points listed in Geekbench’s average score chart for the i7-11800H (45 W). TDP for the i5-1250P is expected to be 28 W – much lower than the other chips mentioned above.

The multi-core score for the Intel Core i5-1250P is even harder to compare than the single-core performance results due to the low-power chip’s architecture. However, at 8,789 points, it again ranks above the same desktop chips: i7-11700F (8,442 points), i5-11600 (7,326 points), Ryzen 5 5600X (8,140 points). As for the powerful 45-W laptop predecessor: The Alder Lake i5-1250P also outscores the Tiger Lake i7-11800H (7,932 points).

A processor like the Intel Core i5-1250P is going to be well suited for the next generation of performance thin and light business-oriented laptops. Content creation should be possible on the go thanks to the powerful Alder Lake-P U28 processor combined with the high-end design and build of an MSI Prestige laptop. The only thing that really stands out as a complaint for Team Blue at the moment is the further torturing of the already convoluted naming scheme.
