Intel has revealed the latest 12th-generation Core P and Core U CPUs for thin-and-light notebooks, after the announcement of the H-series in January.
The P and U series are built on Intel’s performance hybrid architecture and have a mix of Performance-cores (P-cores) and Efficient-cores (E-cores) for handling productivity tasks such as video chats, web surfing, and photo editing.
The mobile CPUs take full advantage of the Intel 7 process’s performance per watt advantages and give the following benefits:
• All-new core architecture with up to 14 cores (6 P-cores and 8 E-cores).
• Integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics with up to 96EU.
• Broad memory support for DDR5/LPDDR5 and DDR4/LPDDR4.
• Incredible scale with up to 70% faster multi-thread performance.
• Nearly 2x performance for 3D rendering — ideal for creators on the go.
• Superior productivity performance with up to 30% faster photo editing.
• Integrated Intel Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+) for improved wireless performance, responsiveness and reliability.
• Thunderbolt 4 for the fastest, simplest and most reliable cable solution to any dock, display or accessory.
•Intel IPU 6.0 for high image quality and power efficiency for enhanced video conferencing.
These new series’s twenty new mobile CPUs will power the next generation of thin-and-light laptops. The first devices will be available in March 2022, with over 250 more expected this year from Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, LG, MSI, NEC, and Samsung.
