[Comparison] Intel Core i7-1280P vs Core i7-11800H – less power consumption, more performance

Right from the start, the Core i7-1280P is probably winning this comparison, when it comes to raw performance. The new architecture just has the higher hardware resource, being able to access more cores. What just needs to be done is for apps to take advantage of them, otherwise, you’re driving a V8 Mustang with 4 cylinders shut off. For today, we have the 28W champ, the i7-1280P going against the Core i7-11800H, which has proven itself as a capable competitor to the Ryzen 5000H-series. So, let’s see how it compares to the best Alder Lake P-series CPU.

Today we are comparing the Intel Core i7-1280P against the Core i7-11800H.

CPU benchmarks

Both chips are evenly matched in 3D Rendering, with the Core i7-1280P outperforming its opponent by only 3% in Cinebench 20. The difference is a bit larger in Photoshop, with the Alder Lake CPU still coming out ahead, this time with a lead of 0.75 seconds.

Conclusion

The improvements that Alder Lake brings are undoubtedly phenomenal, as this new 28W CPU, which will also come with better efficiency, manages to tackle and put down a proven H-series CPU from last year. With that said, these CPUs are for different consumers, as you can get a pretty powerful Tiger lake laptop for a reduced price if you’re ready to deal with a bit more weight and less efficiency. For example, many Creator and Gaming laptops will do just fine, as for most of the time you’ll likely be using them when plugged into the wall.
