Intel Core i7-1370P spotted on Geekbench: 200 MHz higher boost than Core i7-1280P but no perceivable performance uplift
Raptor Lake mobile processors are expected to be announced later this month or during CES 2023, and quite a few of these chips have already started making their initial appearances on Geekbench. We've seen several Raptor Lake mobile leaks including that of the Core i7-13700H, Core i7-13700HX, Core i9-13900HK, and several other HX CPUs. Now, the Raptor Lake-P Core i7-1370P has also made its way to the benchmark's database.
This particular Core i7-1370P entry comes from a Dynabook "Portable PC". The formerly Toshiba company did have a few 14-inch launches this year such as the Portégé X40-K, Portégé X40L, and the 13-inch X30 series but what the term "Portable PC" means here is anybody's guess. It could be a convertible like the X30W-K, or just a placeholder name.
Specs-wise, the Core i7-1370P seems to be a rehash of the Core i7-1280P. The processor offers 14 cores and 20 threads with a boost clock of up to 5 GHz, according to the benchmark. For comparison, the Core i7-1280P had a rated boost up to 4.8 GHz, so the refreshed Raptor Lake-P chips seem to offer an added 200 MHz boost clocks.
We see a single-core score of 1,655 and a multi-core score of 10,184. These numbers are more or less in line with average scores of the Core i7-1280P, so we would need more benchmarks to get a better idea of any purported performance gains.
Still, the nature of the results seem to be in line with previous Raptor Lake mobile leaks so far. Perceivable performance differences from Alder Lake mobile, if any, are more likely to be seen with the higher TDP processors such as the H and HX series, which sport more effective cooling systems.
The 13th gen Raptor Lake-U and P series chips may offer slight performance advantages in specific workloads that can take advantage of increased boost clocks. However, expectations for significant improvements over corresponding Alder Lake mobile parts are best kept tempered.
