Within the extensive range based on Intel’s Alder Lake architecture, which will be used for both desktop and notebook CPUs, there are the so-called Alder Lake-H, designed for high-performance laptops. Well, it seems that there are already preliminary performance tests of the Alder Lake-H, which do not get a result that can be said to be encouraging. What is happening? We explain it to you.

One of the things we know for sure is the range of processors for laptops based on Alder Lake, where the Alder Lake-H models are going to have 14-core configurations. 6 of them are Golden Cove cores and therefore high performance, 8 of them are Gracemont cores and therefore designed for power consumption.

Alder Lake Portátiles Gama

Alder Lake is an architecture designed so that the two types of cores interpenetrate each other to get more performance than in a homogeneous design. Where the difference in performance of the two types of cores makes it difficult to measure the overall performance of the CPU. That is why the results obtained in benchmarks are not interpretable in the same way as a conventional CPU where all the cores are symmetrical.

Intel will launch its Alder Lake for laptops in early 2022, if there are no last minute changes, to compete against the AMD Ryzen 6000H and 6000U range based on AMD’s Rembrandt architecture.

Is this the performance of the Intel Alder Lake-H CPU?

It has appeared within the Geekbench results database the result of an Intel Alder Lake-H, which would have been sent by Hewlett Packard. This shows us that there are already qualification samples of this Alder Lake variant. The result obtained? 1258 points in the test measuring single-core performance and 6831 in the test measuring multi-core performance.

The result obtained is partly disappointing, especially considering that the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H with 8 Zen 3 cores scores 1338 points in the single-core test and 7063 points in the multi-core test. This means that AMD’s CPU scores better in both cases, although it is not a major difference since the differences are 6% and 3% respectively.

Alder Lake-H Geekbench Base Datos

One might think at first that the benchmark does not detect the cores well given the hybrid configuration, but a quick look at the Geekbench database page makes it clear that this is not the case. Besides that the result is given as valid by Geekbench. As you can see, the benchmark detects all cores and should pick up one of the Golden Cove cores as core 0 from which to run the tests for a single core.

What it does not knowmos is the clock speed of the Alder Lake-H that has been tested. Which if we apply Occam’s razor could be why the AMD Ryzen 5800H scores better in these preliminary tests. We know that the Golden Cove cores will have an increase in IPC over the Tiger Lake-H Willow Cove cores, so we should expect Intel to be ahead in performance per core over AMD’s Zen 3-based CPUs.
