Will Alder Lake beat M1?

Arm performance war, but it comes at a cost. The mobile 14-core Alder Lake chip has bested Apple's M1 Max in multiple workloads, including a 30% win in a multi-threaded test, but the former is far more power-hungry than the latter.Jan 27, 2022

The Apple M1 Max has a huge advantage over the Intel Alder Lake 12900HK when it comes to power efficiency, though. Intel's Alder Lake consumes as much as 110W or more under load, whereas the M1 Max comfortably sits under 45W.Mar 18, 2022

Apple's M1 Max delivers better results in areas like efficiency. The Apple MacBook Pro 16″ with the M1 Max CPU lasted 15 hours 31 minutes when testing battery life. The Alder Lake Alienware x17 lasted 3 hours 5 minutes in comparison. Intel's 12th Generation Core i9, Alder Lake beats the M1 Max across power benchmarks.

Intel Alder Lake Core i9 beats Apple M1 Max in our benchmarks €” but there's a catch. Now that Intel's first batch of 12th Gen Alder Lake mobile CPUs have started shipping in the latest laptops, we're starting to see how these cutting-edge chips perform in our suite of benchmarking tests.Feb 1, 2022

Intel Alder Lake Core I9 Beats Apple M1 Max In Our Benchmarks

Intel unveiled its first batch of Alder Lake mobile CPUs at CES 2022 this week, and the company claims at least one of them can deliver performance to rival Apple's M1 Max chip.

Intel Raptor Lake is set to be the follow-up to Alder Lake, the architecture behind the Intel Core i9-12900K. And given that it's following such a successful launch, all eyes will be on Intel to see if it can keep up the momentum – especially now that the Apple M1 Ultra is in play.

Intel's 13th-gen Raptor Lake CPUs will use the same LGA1700 CPU socket used by Alder Lake chips.

Raptor Lake LGA 1700? Raptor Lake

Like Alder Lake, Raptor Lake will be fabricated using Intel's Intel 7 process. At Intel's Investor Meeting 2022, it was confirmed that Raptor Lake would feature up to 24 cores (8 performance + 16 efficiency cores) and 32 threads and is socket compatible with Alder Lake systems (LGA 1700).
