Intel Core Ultra 9 185H confirmed with 5.1 GHz clock
Today marks the first appearance of Core Ultra 9 processors in the public domain. While leaks of Core 7 and Core 5 models have been numerous in the last couple of weeks, this is the first instance of a Core 9 SKU emerging before the scheduled December 14th launch.
What this disclosure confirms is that the Core Ultra 9 185H model will be equipped with 16 cores and 22 threads, boasting a turbo clock speed that reaches up to 5.1 GHz. These details align with earlier speculations made shortly after Intel announced its forthcoming Core CPU branding transformation.
The source of this leak can be traced back to the Geekbench website, which has recently become a hub for Intel-related leaks. Unfortunately, the platform used for the CPU test is not specified, leaving room for the possibility that it was conducted on an early evaluation platform or an upcoming laptop.
The test employed the older Geekbench V5.4 software. The developer no longer maintains ranking data for this version. Nevertheless, there are numerous review sites that provide the necessary information through comprehensive testing, with Notebookcheck among the notable sources. With a single-core score of 1773 to 1849 and multi-core of 9787 to 9832, it falls short when compared to both high-end AMD and Intel processors.
Additionally, a recent leak introduced a new part named the Ultra 5 135H, marking its first appearance as well. In contrast to the 185H, the 135H is equipped with 14 cores and 18 threads, with an expected boost capability of approximately 4.4 GHz. These recent leaks have allowed us to complete the specifications sheet by filling in the missing information, including base and boost clock speeds, as well as core specifications. These five models encompass all the CPU parts that are currently known. Do note that it is not clear if the 185H’s 2.5 GHz base clock is just a result of using an early CPU sample or a final clock, for now, it is much lower than other parts.
If recent rumors are to be believed, although all Meteor Lake CPUs will be fully presented this year, the Core Ultra 9 185H will be available starting from next year. This premium part is likely to be used by many laptop makers who will unveil new products at CES 2024.
