As the highly anticipated launch of Intel's Meteor Lake CPUs approaches, leaks and glimpses into the flagship Core Ultra 9 185H chip surfaces in the tech community. The latest leak showcases the processor's prowess, as it undergoes testing within the Samsung Galaxy Book 4 Ultra, a high-end offering from the laptop manufacturer.

The Core Ultra 9 185H boasts an impressive configuration, featuring up to 16 cores (6 P, 8 E, 2 LP-E cores), 24 threads, and clock speeds reaching up to 5.1 GHz, complemented by a generous 24 MB cache (L3). Positioned as the flagship Meteor Lake CPU, Intel initially focused on Core Ultra 7 & Core Ultra 5 SKUs for laptops, with the higher-end Core Ultra 9 CPUs becoming available through partners. The leak reveals that the Intel Core Ultra 9 185H "Meteor Lake" CPU is a QS sample, representing the C0 stepping. While this is close to the retail model, potential improvements in the final silicon are anticipated. Notably, the CPU demonstrated its capability by reaching a maximum clock speed of 5.1 GHz during testing.

However, critical specifications such as memory speeds, power limits, and thermal targets remain undisclosed. These factors play a pivotal role in evaluating performance across different laptops. The Samsung Galaxy Book 4 Ultra, where the CPU was tested, features a standard dual-fan design with a copper aluminum baseplate covering both the CPU and the dGPU.


In terms of performance metrics, the 185H 767 points in the single-core and 8096 points in the multi-core tests. While these figures are slightly lower than the Raptor Lake Core i9-13900H, which houses 14 cores and boasts clock speeds of up to 5.4 GHz, the Intel Meteor Lake CPU managed to outpace AMD's Ryzen 9 7940HS, showcasing a 14% lead in single-core and a 5% advantage in multi-core performance.


Previous leaks hinted at disappointing battery timings for Intel Meteor Lake CPUs. However, it's crucial to recognize that these figures are context-dependent and necessitate knowledge of the full specifications and thermal/power limits of the laptops used for testing. With the launch date just around the corner on the 14th of December, the tech community eagerly awaits a comprehensive assessment of Intel's next-gen client CPU family in the laptop segment. Stay tuned for more insights into the performance and capabilities of the Intel Core Ultra 9 185H "Meteor Lake".
