A mysterious Intel Raptor Lake-P processor with 14 physical cores has been spotted in the UserBenchmark tool, outperforming the current i9-12900HK notebook processor. Development samples of Intel’s next-generation Core are apparently already circulating among partners.
In short, the Intel Raptor Lake-P scores 202 points for single-core and 2052 points for multi-core. The most powerful of Intel’s own Alder Lake mobile CPUs, the Core i9-12900HK, features the same 14-core and 20-thread design (2.9 to 4.3 GHz) in the same platform, but neither single-core nor multi-core can match this semi-low-voltage processor (the desktop flagship processor has more multi-core performance).
Intel’s 14-core Raptor Lake-P outperforms the i9-12900HK
The mysterious, unnamed 14-core, the 20-thread processor has popped up in the UserBenchmark tool, giving us a sneak peek at some preliminary performance tests.
Momomo_us on Twitter spotted and shared this post, which identifies the processor as an Intel RaptorLake-Px LP5 ERB. Meanwhile, the system is referred to as the “Intel Raptor Lake Client Platform”. It’s clear which architecture it belongs to, but we can’t know the exact model of the processor at the moment. However, we do know that it has 14 cores and 20 threads, so it’s probably a Core i9 laptop processor. The rest of the system consists of a 250GB PCIe NVMe SSD and 16GB of DDR5-6400 RAM, all running Windows 11/.

Raptor Lake-P (Intel 0000) 202 2,052 14 / 20
Core i7-12700K 194 2,419 12 / 20
Core i9-12900HK 185 1,884 14 / 20
The Core i9-12900HK and the i7-12700K desktop were included in the comparison.
The UserBenchmark states that the RPL-ES chip is “throttled to 87% by Windows”, so there is potential for higher performance with this sample.
Let’s not forget that this is a technical sample, which doesn’t always reflect the actual performance of architecture. However, it is good news that this technical sample already shows better performance than the current generation in the notebook segment.
The Raptor Lake series is expected to launch later this year. We will keep you updated on the latest developments.
