One of Intel's upcoming Alder Lake-P processors has leaked on Geekbench in two listings. The Core i7-12700H features 14 cores, 20 threads and appears to offer significantly better performance than current 45 W laptop processors. Power draw and heat remain a mystery, though.

The Intel Core i7-12700H has appeared on Geekbench again, this time in its single-core and multi-core benchmark. Previously, the Alder Lake-P processor appeared in Geekbench OpenCL and Vulkan benchmarks paired with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU.

According to these new listings, the Core i7-12700H has between a 2.45 GHz and 2.69 GHz base clock speed, along with up to a 4.58 GHz boost clock. Geekbench also reports that the processor has 14 cores and 20 threads, indicating 6 performance cores that support Hyper-Threading and 8 efficiency cores that do not.

We should stress that Geekbench does not include what power the HP Omen 17 or Gigabyte Aero 5 XE needed to achieve these numbers. Likewise, we do not know how hot these machines were running, either. Intel is not expected to launch Alder Lake-P processors until early next year, but we imagine that at least power figures will leak between now and then.

Undoubtedly, these laptops will have engineering samples of the Core i7-12700H. Hence, we would recommend reading too much into the performance on display. However, the Aero 5 XE outscores the Core i7-11800H by a healthy margin in the multi-core benchmark. A similar story exists between the Core i7-12700H and current Ryzen APUs, such as the Ryzen 9 5980HX. Overall, performance looks positive for Intel's Alder Lake-P processors.
