[Comparison] Intel Core i7-1280P vs Core i7-12700H – despite the loss, this is a fantastic showing for the Core i7-1280P

This comparison will be very interesting, as it will show just how much TDP matters. Both the Core i7-1280P and the Core i7-12700H come with the same number of cores and threads (the number of P-cores and E-cores is also matching), the same cache size, and very similar clock speeds. We have seen how Apple can deliver maximum performance while keeping the TDP to the minimum and battery life as high as possible.

Today we are comparing the Core i7-1280P against the Core i7-12700H.
