Shocking: Intel Core Ultra 7 155H Falls Short

Intel Core Ultra 7 155H

On the internet, a file that is said to be a test result for yet another Intel Core Ultra (Meteor Lake) CPU has been found. This time, they have a PassMark score to consider for a processor that has been identified as an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H. In a nutshell, a number of significant aspects, including core counts and base clocks, have been “confirmed.” The performance of the single core on the mobile chip appears to be an improvement, but the multi-core performance is (yet again) a bit of a letdown.

The Intel Core Ultra 7 155H is a laptop central processing unit (CPU) having 16 cores and 22 threads, according to the PassMark sys-info module. It is also reported that 10 of the physical cores are “efficient cores.” This adds up to a total of 22 threads, taking into account the fact that the six remaining physical cores ought to be “performance cores” thanks to Hyperthreading.

The data collection procedure for the benchmark appears to have disclosed further information, such as the base clock speed, which is 3.8 GHz, but there is no indication of the boost clock speed. It has also been stated that the cache setup is L1: 960 KB, L2: 18.0 MB, and L3: 24 MB.

Moving on to the performance on benchmarks, they can observe that the total score for the Core Ultra 7 155H is 21,359 on PassMark. Since it is a processor for laptops that is part of the new Core Ultra 7 H series, we believe that it is fair to utilize the PassMark web interface to compare it to a recent Core i7 H-series chip. This comparison will be made. Because of this, the comparative table that follows shows that they went with the Core i7-13700H.

The performance result for a single core appears to be satisfactory, as it gives an over 6% boost in performance when compared to the previous generation. They would anticipate the end product to be of higher quality, with compatibility for more recent software and BIOS versions. Six percent is hardly a number that would cause us to get very enthused about any typical generation-to-generation improvement. It’s important to keep in mind that Pat Gelsinger has already teased us with Meteor Lake, claiming that it would be our next “Centrino Moment.”

If the results of this PassMark test are accurate and legitimate, then the alleged 22 threads of the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H are much less impressive than they were previously thought to be. The score of 21,359 in PassMark is embarrassingly low when compared to the score of 28,440 that the familiar Core i7-13700H (20 threads) achieved. You can see this comparison in PassMark. The PassMark program, unfortunately, does not confirm critical performance-affecting aspects such as the thermal design power (TDP) of the Meteor Lake processor or its GPU type or driver.

In a nutshell, the end effect is something that is intriguing but not really motivating. They can see that testing of Meteor Lake laptops is still going on in the lead up to product releases incorporating these processors, which are slated to take place close to the end of the year. In the meanwhile, we are hoping to see the testing of laptops equipped with additional near-final silicon and/or drivers, which will start to make us look forward to the next “Centrino Moment” for Intel and for users. On December 14, Intel is anticipated to debut the Core Ultra series, and shortly thereafter, partners will follow up with their most recent portable hardware offerings.

Check out in-depth reporting on the new ‘Meteor Lake’ CPUs from Intel Innovation 2023 and our examination of the greatly enhanced built-in GPUs for further information regarding Intel Core Ultra. Both of these can be found on our website. They also looked at benchmarks that were said to be for a Core Ultra 7 165H and a Core Ultra 9 185H that were found online recently.
