Intel announces its most powerful mobile CPU ever: this 16-core Alder Lake monster


Intel announced its most powerful mobile CPUs yet on Tuesday: the new 12th-gen Alder Lake Core HX-series aimed squarely at the enthusiast market.

The Core i5, i7, and i9 HX-series chips will be unlocked, meaning overclockers will be able to push a mobile chip even farther than they could before; Intel promises desktop-caliber performance in mobile laptops and workstations. That may seem like a tall order, but the new chips will feature as many as 16-cores/24-threads, PCIe 5.0 x16 and up to 128GB DDR5 RAM support, as well as 55W of base power to the silicon. So desktop performance is definitely possible — if unlikely.
