Intel Alder Lake-P

Core i5 beats Core i7: Alder Lake-P creates problems for manufacturers and customers

We reviewed a few new Alder Lake-P CPUs from Intel over the last two weeks and our concerns are supported by the test results. The power consumption is very high, which is a challenge for the cooling solutions. It is also a problem for customers, because a Core i5 can be more powerful than a Core i7 and there can be massive performance differences in general.

AMD Ryzen 7 6800U and Radeon 680M bring decent performance gains provided there's enough TDP headroom. (Image via AMD/Asus with edits)

First AMD Ryzen 7 6800U benchmarks: Closer to Core i7-1260P in multi-core, Radeon 680M impresses in synthetics but lags in gaming

We have with us the first benchmarks of AMD's latest Ryzen 6800U APU from an Asus ZenBook S 13 OLED laptop. We see that the Ryzen 6800U offers decent improvements in multi-core over a Ryzen 7 5800U but loses out to the Core i7-1260P in single-core. The biggest advantage, however, is with the Radeon 680M iGPU that can ably compete with the likes of a GTX 1650 Max-Q in some tests, though it might require some upscaling impetus in gaming.
