Intel Core i7-12650H core configuration revealed by new Geekbench listing
Although Intel isn't anywhere close to unveiling its highly-anticipated Alder Lake-P line of mobile processors, a steady stream of leaks have given us a rough idea about what they could have in store for us. The top-of-the-line Core i9-12900HK showed up on Geekbench not too long ago, followed by the Core i7-12700H and the Core i7-1270P. Now, a new SKU called the Intel Core i7-12650H has entered the fray, and it is one of the most puzzling models we've seen so far.
Benchleaks (via Videocardz) happened to stumble upon the Core i7-12650H on Geekbench's OpenCL test database. The listing tells us that the CPU packs a total of 10 cores and 16 threads, suggesting that there are six performance and four efficiency cores. So far, all the Alder Lake Core i7 SKUs we've seen featured six performance and eight efficiency cores.
The Intel Core i7-12650H Geekbench listing also tells us that the processor operates at a base frequency of 2.7GHz and can boost up to 3.45GHz. Its L1 data and instruction caches are set at 32kB x 8 and 48kB x 8, respectively. Similarly, it also has 1.25MB x 2 of L2 and 24MB of L3 cache. The listing also sheds light on its iGPU, which has 64 CUs (compute units) and can hit a peak speed of 1,300MHz.
We learned earlier that Alder Lake-P processors could ship with four different TDP configurations. The SKUs with four performance and eight efficiency cores will be rated at 28W. Hence, we can reasonably assume the Intel Core i7-12650H to operate at that wattage.
