[Comparison] AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS vs Intel Core i7-12700H – there’s nothing stopping the Blue Wall

2022 will be Intel’s year when it comes to laptops, in the case that you want the highest performing available hardware. Their Alder lake H-series is so far undefeated, managing to outperform everything that Ryzen delivers, regardless if it uses Zen 3 or Zen 3+.

Today, however, we have a new challenger, which strives to be the top choice when it comes to thin and light devices. The Ryzen 7 6800HS has a 35W TDP, which is 10W less than the CPU it’s going up against.

This will be a show for the ages, as the Ryzen 7 6800HS goes against the Core i7-12700H.

Conclusion

While Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs generally present better performance, that doesn’t mean that it’s over for AMD. What they can do now is focus on the mid-range and the low-end, while striving to offer better value at the high-end. While they can’t match Intel in terms of pure performance, if they play a bit with their pricing, they can deliver very good devices in terms of price to performance.
