The newest Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake flagship CPU benchmarks have leaked out and the QS chips present a lot quicker single-threaded efficiency than Rocket Lake whereas providing multi-core efficiency on par with AMD’s flagship Ryzen 5000 CPUs.
Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake Benchmarks Show Fastest Single-Threaded Performance, Up To 20% Faster Than AMD Ryzen 9 5950X
While we now have already seen a number of benchmarks of the Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU, that is the primary time we’re getting outcomes from a QS chip that ought to provide higher efficiency & total stability. The exams had been carried out on a B660 motherboard together with DDR4-3600 reminiscence in Gear 1 mode. The benchmarks had been leaked over at Bilibili and noticed by HXL.
Intel Core i7-12700K CPU Specifications
The Intel Core i7-12700K CPU will provide 8 Golden Cove cores however minimize down the Gracemont cores to 4. This will lead to a complete of 12 cores (8+4) and 20 threads (16+4). The P-cores (Golden Cove) will function at a base frequency of three.6 GHz and a most increase frequency of as much as 5.0 GHz with 1-2 lively cores and 4.7 GHz with all-cores lively whereas the E-cores (Gracemont) will function at 3.8 GHz throughout 1-4 cores & as much as 3.6 GHz when all cores are loaded. The CPU will characteristic 25 MB of L3 cache and TDP values are maintained at 125W (PL1) and 250W (PL2).
Before shifting over to the efficiency metrics, it’s said that the Intel Core i9-12900K peaked at 250W within the AVX2 mode stress check whereas operating at 108C temperatures. It appears like Intel has as soon as once more given away energy effectivity and went with a brute-force method to sort out AMD’s Ryzen Zen 3 CPUs. It can be said that there was some drawback with Thermal Velocity Boost on the precise B660 motherboard and the max frequency that was achieved is 5.1 GHz (4.9 GHz P-Core & 3.7 GHz E-Core). The efficiency was evaluated in Windows 11 however the usage of higher BIOS & DDR5 DRAM would lead to barely higher efficiency.
Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU Power Consumption & Temperatures:
So coming to the benchmarks, we first have the CPU-z outcomes the place the Intel Core i9-12900K is 20% quicker in single-threaded and virtually on par with the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X. Remember that AMD’s Ryzen 9 5950X has 33% increased threads than the Intel flagship. In Cinebench R20, the Alder Lake chip as soon as once more gives a 20% efficiency increase in a single-threaded and comparable efficiency within the multi-threaded benchmarks.
This is an excellent showcase of the efficiency that Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs have to supply, particularly within the single-threaded division nevertheless, these excessive temperatures and energy numbers are one thing to fret about. The Intel Core i9-12900K is anticipated to hit retail at round $550 US which ought to make it $250 US cheaper than the MSRP of the Ryzen 9 5950X & the identical MSRP of the Ryzen 9 5900X. It may transform a compelling possibility however would require numerous high-end cooling and energy tools to deal with it.
Intel’s Alder Lake Desktop CPUs will characteristic each DDR5 and DDR4 reminiscence controllers and 600-series motherboards can even include DDR5/DDR4 particular choices. High-end motherboards will retain DDR5 whereas the extra mainstream choices will open up DDR4 assist too. The Intel Alder Lake CPU lineup is anticipated to launch in November together with the respective Z690 platform and DDR5 reminiscence kits.
