Intel is expected to announce the Alder Lake-HX chips on May 10th, during its Vision event. This processor line-up will bring 55W SKUs with PCIe 5.0 and overclocking support to the mobile segment, featuring up to eight P-cores and eight E-cores for mobile workstations and gaming laptops.
According to the data shared by VideoCardz, the new HX chips will be based on the desktop CPUs, using a BGA package. With 48 PCIe lanes (16x PCIe 5.0 + 20x PCIe 4.0 + 12x PCIe 3.0), these chips will be the first laptop platform supporting PCIe 5.0 connectivity. DDR5 memory is also supported, as well as XMP 3.0 and a new feature named Dynamic Memory Boost. Moreover, they will also feature up to 16x computing cores (8 P-cores and 8 E-cores) and 5.0GHz clock speeds.

The new Alder Lake-HX chips will support memory and CPU E-core overclock. These chips will also feature an iGPU with 32 EUs, except for the i5-12450HX, which packs a 16 EU iGPU. There are also three HX chips supporting ECC and Intel vPro; the Core i9-12950HX, the Core i7-12850HX and the i5-12600HX. CPU base power of the Alder Lake-HX processors is set at 55W, but it can increase up to 157W.
Intel's new high-end mobile chips should be announced tomorrow at the Intel Vision event. The first laptops with the CPUs should come soon after.
