Intel's Core i9-12900HK Alder Lake Is A Power Hungry & Beast of A Notebook CPU, Up To 29% Faster Than AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX
A performance preview of the Intel Core i9-12900HK Alder Lake Flagship 16 core notebook CPU has been published and oh boy, it's powerful.
Seems Intel is a little toasty! I have seen so many threads with trolls saying M1 Max sucks and on and on!
I have said from the start that while Intel may be able to match or even beat AMD and Apple Silicon in some benchmarks they have serious problems with thermals and throttling. So for short bursts the Scalderlake might be great but under sustained heavy loads this thing is going to throttle like crazy!!
Benchmarks and being fast are not everything although they are a important part of evaluating a processor.
If your cpu goes through a battery like candy and heats up like the sun just to obtain the speed and benchmarks then it will not be a very practical cpu for most users as they will have to liquid cool their laptops to get the performance that Intel advertises.
So lets have at it and see why Intel is still king....Lol
