HX processors deliver desktop performance to mobile devices, says Intel

Seven mobile processors make up the 12th Gen Intel Core HX processors. They use “desktop-calibre” silicon to deliver performance suitable for CAD, animation and visual effects on mobile devices. The HX processors are available in Core i5, Core i7 and Core i9 models.

“With the new core architecture and higher power limits of 12th Gen Intel Core HX processors, we’re enabling content creators to tackle the most demanding work flows . . . for example, executing 3D renders in the background while continuing to iterate on other 3D assets in the scene,” said Chris Walker, Intel’s corporate vice president and general manager of Mobility Client Platforms.

There will be no more waiting around for processor-intensive workloads to finish, he continued. “Gamers and content creators will also have access to high bandwidth platform technologies like PCIe Gen 5 with RAID support, and support for ECC memory to ensure high levels of system data integrity and reliability.”

The HX processor family is designed to help creator access the processing power and platform bandwidth to iterate content faster. 

The 12th Gen Intel Core HX processors enable the best mobile workstation platforms by providing 65 per cent more performance in multi-threaded workloads with more cores, more memory and more I/O while utilising Intel Thread Director technology to leverage high power Performance cores and Efficient cores for creating, programming and rendering in addition to working efficiently whether at home, in the office or when mobile. 

In addition, added Intel, the 12th Gen Intel Core HX processors provide a gaming platform that will give enthusiast gamers higher frame rates.

The processors have up to 16 cores (eight Performance cores and eight Efficient cores) and 24 threads running at a processor base power of 55W.

They also offer access to x16 PCIe Gen 5.0 via the processor and 4×4 PCIe Gen 4.0 from a dedicated platform controller hub (PCH) for increased bandwidth and faster data transfers.

The unlocked and overclockable series of mobile processors is believed to be the first in the industry. The HX processors offer memory support for up to 128Gbytes of DDR5 / LPDDR5 (up to 4800MHz / 5200MHz) and DDR4 (up to 3200MHz / LPDDR4 4267MHz) with error correcting code (ECC) capability.

Designs with Intel Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) have improved connectivity and access to the new 6GHz spectrum.

There are over 10 workstation and gaming designs powered by 12th Gen Intel Core HX processors due to be launched by major OEMs this year, including systems from Dell, HP and Lenovo.
