Intel’s Core i7-1270P features a processor for notebook platforms based on the Alder Lake architecture. In the last few hours, some performance results and specifications of this processor have been revealed.
Intel Core i7-1270P laptop processor with 12 cores and 16 threads surfaced at Geekbench
The Intel Core i7-1270P uses the Alder Lake-P architecture, an architecture that will have a maximum configuration of 14 cores. This processor will be found in the Samsung Galaxy Book notebook, a notebook that will also have other CPUs to choose from.
The model shown here has 12 cores and 16 threads, which means 4 high-performance cores (P-core) and 8 high-efficiency cores (E-core). The 16 threads are explained by the fact that the P-core cores have Hyper-Threading, while the E-Core cores lack this feature.
Rounding out the specifications is a base clock rate of 2.5 GHz (the boost clock rate of this bug) with an L3 cache of 18 MB. This base clock rate is low, which would explain the results.
It is rumored that Intel will revise the naming of its 12th generation Alder Lake P chips, replacing the current H-45, H-35, and U-28 designations for now.
The rest of the hardware tested in Geekbench 5 mentions the Windows 11 operating system along with about 16 GB of DDR5 memory, which could be the LPDDR5X.
The Samsung Galaxy Book could launch in the US at a price between $800 and $1300, depending on the configuration chosen. Samsung uses an AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1080p and a refresh rate of 60 Hz.
The Alder Lake desktop series is expected to hit the market in early November.
