It beats the ryzen chips in cinebench as well, but still in price/performance, I would still choose a ryzen 9 5900h...

Use industry standard benchmarks, and not AnTuTu or Geekbench garbage.

constipation, 06 Jan 2022Yes, M1 regular, the one that's in Mac Mini/ 2020 MBA/... moreEven intel soc are rated as 15w but they consume more than that. There are lot of test which show M1 consume around 30W.

M1 Pro and Max is rated up to 30W, however since it's quite dynamie it could go as low as 8W. Check up Anandtech's review of it.

Nope, 28W Alder Lake is the P variant and yes it beaten the M1 regular, but not the M1 Pro and Max. The one that beaten the M1 Pro/Max is the 45W Alder Lake H mobile series.

SigmaR, 06 Jan 20224P + 4E is a 8 Core design. You meant 12 threads, not cores... moreyep.
4P+4E (with each PERFORMANCE core having 2 threads in and each ENERGY core having 1 thread) is 12 threads.

Using 5 times more power?

Cant keep buying all this new tech stuff, its getting too expensive to keep up.

Will be buying 12 gen msi laptop

IMO getting high thread-count CPUs / SoCs into mobile devices is definitely a good thing. M1 is impressive, but unfortunately you can't run every thing on ARM or Mac OS. x86 is still king for software availability.

They won't grow up and suddenly ask for the kind of computers their ancestors had. Work would change to fit their needs.

X86 is not holding us back anymore. It and the segment it represents is slowly dying it is all... Good riddance. 50 years in the realm of tech are too many... Bye

AhmedSLL, 05 Jan 2022Hopefully windows benefits from this too, because right now... moreI have a Dell Vostro with ryzen 5000 series chip and 54Whr battery. Gives me 12-13 hours of screen on time on wifi.

Hemedans, 05 Jan 2022Alderlake has gpu also, not as powerfull as m1 max though. ... moreDepends on what you're comparing on. Regular M1, which what you said that got beaten by Alder Lake on Geekbench, is a 10W TDP SoC.

The one that I'm talking earlier is M1 Pro and Max duo, which has higher TDP (but remember it's quite dynamic so it depending on the use https://www.anandtech.com/show/17024/apple-m1-max-performance-review/3 )

Intel always has been on 45W for their higher end mobile CPU. The problem is that Apple's is a SoC packet (CPU, GPU, RAM, basically almost the whole system as it says "system on chip") so 90W is as much as it gets as the whole system. On PC you need to add that 45W with other stuff, especially GPU, which eats way higher even mobile ones, for example the latest n gratest RTX 3080 mobile can ate up to 190W. PC version is even higher at 300ish watt.
