Is Alder Lake better than M1?

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.

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.

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.

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 price target was reportedly 5-30% more than Alder Lake but Ryzen 7000's pricing allegedly threw a wrench in the works. Intel's 13th gen Raptor Lake processors are rumored to pack some impressive improvements over the 12th gen Alder Lake CPUs.

The 12th-gen Alder Lake's E-core is about 1 percent faster than the 10th-gen Comet Lake, or about a 10 percent dip in performance from the 11th-gen Rocket Lake-S. PC makers, of course, have the option to run Alder Lake at lower power levels.

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 latest Core i9-12900HK processor may just have won the mobile x86 vs. Arm performance war, but it comes at a cost.
