Intel is about to launch Alder Lake-HX, a mobile processor formerly known as Alder Lake-H55, for enthusiast notebooks or mobile workstations, it will be Intel’s most powerful product on mobile platforms.
Alder Lake-HX uses the existing Alder Lake-S core on the desktop platform, but it will be changed to a BGA package. It has up to 8 performance cores based on the Golden Cove architecture and 8 energy efficiency cores based on the Gracemont architecture, with a GPU core of 32 EUs. According to VideoCardz, Intel will release Alder Lake-HX at its Vision event on May 10 and leaked the entire product lineup.
Alder Lake-HX’s BGA package size is said to be the same as the desktop (45 x 37.5 mm), but the height is different, reduced from 4.4mm to 2mm. Alder Lake-HX will be the first laptop platform to support PCIe 5.0, providing a total of 48 PCIe lanes, including 16 PCIe 5.0 lanes, 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes, and 12 PCIe 3.0 lanes. In addition, Alder Lake-HX also supports XMP 3.0, Intel Dynamic Memory Boost, Intel Speed Optimizer, and Extreme Tuning Utility.
The specifications of Alder Lake-HX are similar to the previously leaked information, but the frequency is different, the TDP is 55W, and the maximum can be increased to 157W. Alder Lake-HX has a total of seven products, of which the Core i9-12950HX, Core i7-12850HX and Core i5-12600HX support ECC and vPro platforms.
