Intel’s latest HX chips bring desktop-grade features to gaming laptops

Intel’s 12th-Gen Alder Lake CPUs have already wowed on the desktop and in laptops, where its hybrid architecture produced a great performance uptick, particularly when it comes to gaming. Intel isn’t done with its new architecture and has just announced the release of its HX processors—the most powerful mobile Alder Lake chips yet.

A total of seven HX processors are being launched across the usual Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 models. These “Ajax” chips are unlocked and overclockable, essentially using desktop-caliber silicon in a mobile package. These CPUs come with support for x16 PCIe 5.0 natively, with a dedicated platform controller hub (PCH) supporting up to four PCIe 4.0 SSDs, for seriously beefy configurations.
