New 12th-generation Intel processors have been leaked regularly for some time, but so far we have mainly dealt with desktop models (Alder Lake-S). Today, in turn, we have something special for you, because the Alder Lake-P laptop processor, which was on board the still unreleased VivoBook X1603ZA.
An unknown Alder Lake-P processor appeared in the UserBenchmark
This processor appeared in a dubious benchmark UserBenchmark, as a CPU offering 12 threads while having eight cores. If such a configuration seems impossible to you, then make up for all the gaps in my compendium of knowledge about Alder Lake processors. This configuration makes it clear that this processor combines four Performance cores with four Efficiency cores.

These cores have been reported to be 1 to 2.9 GHz, but given the nature of the leak, the lack of official support and most likely an engineering sample, it’s better not to pay close attention to it. On the performance side, this unknown Alder Lake-P laptop processor scored 150 points on a single-core test, 291 points on a dual-core test, 499 points on a four-core and finally 660 points on an eight-core test. However, this result is underestimated by background operations and the problematic temperature that has likely led to thermal throttling.

Compared to the competition, that is, more or less the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor that corresponds to this Intel Core, there are respectively 150, 296, 567 and 1020 points. This suggests a similar performance to 4-core performance, but keep in mind that these are only demonstrative comparisons, so cannot be taken as an oracle of the final performance.
