Comparison of the two processors

The two mobile processors from this comparison both came onto the market in the first quarter of 2022. But that was almost it for the similarities. The AMD Ryzen 7 6800H is manufactured with a structure width of 6 nanometers and comes from the fifth generation of AMD's Ryzen 7 family. It is based on the Rembrandt (Zen 3+) architecture and is designed for the FP7 socket. The
Intel Core i7-12700H, on the other hand, is manufactured using the much larger 10-nanometer process, but comes from the twelfth generation of the Intel Core i7 family. It is based on the Alder Lake H architecture and is designed for the BGA 1744 socket.

The AMD Ryzen 7 6800H has 8 identical cores with a base clock of 3.20 gigahertz. The processor's maximum turbo clock is 4.70 gigahertz. The AMD processor supports hyperthreading, which means it has up to 16 computing threads available. The Intel Core i7-12700H is built in a hybrid big.LITTLE core architecture. Six performance cores of the Golden Cove type are used here, along with eight additional efficiency cores of the Gracemont type. The Golden Cove cores clock up to 4.70 gigahertz, while the maximum clock speed of the Gracemont cores is 3.50 gigahertz. Hyperthreading is only supported by the performance cores, which means that the processor has a maximum of 20 computing heads available.

The AMD Radeon 680M is used as the internal graphics unit in the AMD Ryzen 7 6800H. This iGPU has 12 execution units with 768 shaders and clocks at up to 2.20 gigahertz. Like the processor, it is manufactured using the 6-nanometer process and can use up to 8 gigabytes of RAM built into the system. The Intel Core i7-12700H uses the Intel Iris Xe Graphics (Alder Lake) with 96 execution units and 768 shaders. This iGPU clocks at up to 1.40 gigahertz and can use up to 32 gigabytes of the system's built-in RAM.

Both processors have 2 memory channels through which they can be operated with up to 64 gigabytes of memory.
