Promising Intel Core i7-12800H sample in AORUS 15 YE4 laptop storms past i7-11800H and AMD Ryzen 5900HX in Geekbench appearance

An Alder Lake-P processor in the form of the Intel Core i7-12800H has made a promising appearance on Geekbench inside a Gigabyte AORUS 15 YE4 laptop. While the multi-core score for the i7-12800H appears to be lower than what can be expected, the single-core score places it way beyond the predecessor i7-11800H and rival Ryzen 9 5900HX.

It’s time for the mobile arm of Alder Lake to shine after desktop processors in the 12th Gen series from Intel have reasonably impressed so far. We have already seen early appearances by the Intel Core i7-12700H and now the i7-12800H has been spotted by APISAK on Geekbench. The Alder Lake-P SKU was benched inside an upcoming Gigabyte AORUS 15 YE4 laptop and was recorded with a tasty base frequency of 2.80 GHz (i7-11800H @2.30 GHz). The turbo is recorded at 28.3 GHz, which is clearly a misreading caused by the hybrid architecture.

In fact, the Intel Core i7-12800H’s hybrid makeup allows it to outcore and outthread its predecessor too, with the Alder Lake sample offering 14 cores and 20 threads compared to the simple 8C/16T build of the Tiger Lake chip. Naturally, the i7-12800H outguns the i7-11800H in the multi-core test, by +20.84% (note: hypothetical maximum vs. Geekbench chart average), but the result is below those produced by the i7-12700H, so some further tweaking seems likely yet. The AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX with its 8 cores has its chart average beaten by +25.87% here, but the Alder Lake chip does have a core-count advantage.

Single-core is often where the action is when Intel is involved, and the i7-12800H also delivers here. The Alder Lake chip shows some teeth with a score of 1,654 points, which places it ahead of the two above-mentioned comparison processors. The Intel Core i7-12800H’s score is +12.21% over the i7-11800H and +16.73% over the Ryzen 9 5900HX. The next-generation Gigabyte AORUS laptops with Alder Lake processors are expected to come in both 15-inch and 17-inch forms according to recent leaks, with support for both DDR4 and DDR5 memory configurations.
