Every notebook needs a mobile processor. It is the heart of every notebook and is largely responsible for the performance of a notebook. Current mobile processors usually have a fast, integrated graphics card. In contrast to desktop processors, mobile processors are usually a bit slower and therefore require less energy, which has a positive effect on the battery life of the notebook.
It's not always easy to find the best processor for your needs. While many visitors only pay attention to the theoretical speed of a processor, others want to read detailed test reports that also deal with the processor's speed in practice. Therefore, we have collected a large number of benchmarks in order to meet as many requirements as possible.
We have not only listed our results for you in map form at the top of this page, but also in a clear table at the bottom of this page. So everyone can quickly find their way around and find the best processor for themselves.
AMD, Apple or Intel - who is currently ahead?
Intel is the absolute market leader in the mobile segment of processors. With the 12th generation of Intel Core i processors, Intel has the opportunity to further expand its position, because the new hybrid processors are economical and fast at the same time. The Intel Core i7-12700H and the top model, the Intel Core i9-12900HK, are currently particularly popular. Both processors have a whopping 14 cores and can process 20 threads simultaneously.
They are produced using the Intel 7 manufacturing process, which is comparable to TSMC's 7 nm manufacturing process. TSMC currently manufactures AMD processors in 7 nm and Apple processors such as the Apple M1 even in 5 nm. With the Apple M1 Max, Apple also has a fast mobile processor on offer, but it does not come close to the performance of the new Intel processors.
The current AMD mobile processors such as the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX or the slightly smaller AMD Ryzen 7 5800H with their 8 CPU cores also offer a lot of performance for a reasonable price. The mobile processors from AMD also have strong integrated graphics chips with which one or the other game can be played smoothly.
