Intel Core i7-12800H

Intel i7-12800H

The Intel Core i7-12800H is a high-end mobile CPU for laptops based on the Alder Lake architecture. It was announced in early 2022 and offers 6 performance cores (P-cores, Golden Cove architecture) and 8 efficient cores (E-cores, Gracemont architecture). The P-cores support Hyper-Threading leading to 20 supported threads when combined with the E-cores. The clock rate ranges from 2.4 to 4.8 GHz on the performance cluster and 1.8 to3.7 GHz on the efficient cluster. The performance of the E-cores should be similar to old Skylake cores (compare to the Core i7-6920HQ). All cores can use up to 24 MB L3 cache. Compared to the 12900H, the 12800H is lower clocked and also features  the full "Enterprise" set of vPro features (for remote management).

Features

The integrated memory controller supports various memory types up to DDR5-4800, DDR4-3200, LPDDR5-5200, and LPDDR4x-4267. The Thread Director (in hardware) can support the operating system to decide which thread to use on the performance or efficient cores for the best performance. For AI tasks, the CPU also integrates GNA 3.0 and DL Boost (via AVX2). Quick Sync in version 8 is the same as in the Rocket Lake CPUs and supports MPEG-2, AVC, VC-1 decode, JPEG, VP8 decode, VP9, HEVC, and AV1 decode in hardware. The CPU only supports PCIe 4.0 (x8 for a GPU and two x4 for SSDs).

The integrated graphics adapter is based on the Xe-architecture and offers 96 EUs (Execution Units) operating at up to 1.4 GHz.

Performance

The average 12800H in our database matches the Ryzen 9 6900HS and the Core i9-11900H in multi-thread performance. Which is fairly impressive, as of mid 2022.

Thanks to its decent cooling solution and a long-term CPU power limit of 70 W, the ZBook Studio 16 G9 is among the fastest laptops built around the 12800H that we know of. It can be about 70% faster in CPU-bound workloads than the slowest system featuring the same chip in our database, as of August 2023.

Power consumption

This Core i7 series chip has a "minimum assured" power consumption of 35 W, with 45 W being its Base power consumption. The maximum Intel-recommended Turbo power consumption sits at 115 W.

The i7-12800H is built with Intel's fourth-gen 10 nm process marketed as Intel 7 for average, as of early 2023, energy efficiency.
