One of the novelties in terms of notebooks equipped with 12th generation Intel Core processors will be a new form factor based on the use of a 28 W TDP central unit, which will be marketed as a high-end “ultralight”. Well, the first representative of this form factor already has benchmarks, especially those of the i5-1250P. Are the new CPUs competitive for this new type of notebook?
Competition between Intel and AMD in laptops is fierce, but it works differently than in conventional tower PCs. The difference is that the CPU is not sold to the end user, but to the manufacturer or assembler of the laptop who will assemble a computer from the specifications given by one of the two processor manufacturers.
It’s not just about having the most powerful processor, but also the one that allows for lighter, thinner form factors to grab the attention of the average shopper. This requires processors designed to operate with a different TDP than usual in laptops, the i5-1250P is one of those processors.
This is how the Intel Core i5-1250P works
There are only a few weeks left for the first laptops with Intel Core 12 processors to hit the market, and it’s only fitting that manufacturers test their designs against the various benchmarks. Well the Core i5-1250P what form of calls CPU U28 Intel has been seen in Geekbench 5 and with very positive results.
We have to assume that the i5-1250pP is not the top of the line Alder Lake-P models with 28W of TDP, so there are better ones. It is a processor with 4 performance cores, P-Core, and 8 efficient, E-Core, it can therefore handle up to 16 simultaneous threads. As for your base clock speed, it is 2.1 GHz
And what about its performance? Well, as you can see from the numbers the i5-1250P brings out the colors of the previous generation i7-11800H with a result of 1,611 points in the Geekbench 5 vs. 1 467 points of h is rival
It’s a 10% difference, but taking into account that the i5-1250P is a processor with a TDP of 28W and the i7-11800H is 45W So this clearly shows that this is a testament to the higher performance per watt of Intel’s new architecture.
High-end ULM vs AMD
For some time now, Intel has decided to create new form factors based on the use of a processor with a TDP different from the classics of 15 W Yes 45 W which have normalized over time. In the case of Gen 11 they launched the 35W and now with Alder Lake-P they will launch the 28W.
The reason for departing from the standard is to make exclusive laptop designs which, due to power and heat reasons, cannot use AMD processors. In other words, it’s the creation of unresponsive spaces by Pat Gelsinger that Lisa has no processors for. Although at this point we need to know how they will perform on other components like GPU and RAM.
