The Core i7-1270P has emerged on Geekbench, one of Intel's upcoming Alder Lake-P processors. The 12-core and 16-thread processor has been spotted in a Samsung Galaxy Book laptop, although its performance is nothing to write home about yet.

Another unreleased Galaxy Book with an Alder Lake mobile processor has appeared on a benchmarking website. Last month, a 14-core model surfaced on UserBenchmark bearing the name 'Samsung 930QED'. The device also had 20 threads, hinting that it has 6 multi-threaded performance cores (Golden Cove) and 8 single-threaded efficiency cores (Gracemont).

Incidentally, the same model has found its way to Geekbench, albeit a 12-core version of it. The Core i7-1270P processor has 16 threads, which should correspond to 4 Golden Cove cores and 8 Gracemont cores. Geekbench also reports that the Alder Lake processor has 18 MB of L3 cache and a 2.5 GHz base clock.

We would not recommend reading anything into the scores presented below, mind you. Currently, the Core i7-1270P falls short of even the Core i5-1135G7, which we doubt represents the former's final performance. Undoubtedly, this machine and processor are prototypes; Intel is not expected to launch Alder Lake-P (ADL P) processors until early 2022.

According to a leaked roadmap, ADL P processors will operate at between 12 W and 45 W with DDR5 RAM support and integrated Thunderbolt 4 controllers. ADL P processors are expected to replace the Tiger Lake-U and -H series, with the ADL M-platform serving as a Tiger Lake-UP4 successor. The ADL P series is thought to feature Xe GT3 and GT3 iGPUs with up to 96 Execution Units (EUs), too.
